There are now several upscale restaurants (or trying to be) in PM, but this is not one of them. This is an honest to goodness, local restaurant which is frequented by locals and tourists alike. It offers simple meals, if that is what you are looking for, at great prices and of outstanding quality. We had an assortment of empanadas... More

We just had dinner at this restaurant tonight… The Arecherra steak was amazing! Grill to perfection… Tender… Great flavor. A simple salad will serve next to it and it was enough. Really good meal!

We also had the special one night which a pasta dish that was also excellent. Drinks were very good as well.

Los Gauchos has great empanadas and a super friendly staff, especially, Dulce, who was so kind and sweet. They also often have very interesting music.

Was here with a group of seven. The waitresses were friendly and efficient. Two ordered the salmon(huge portion) well the rest of us ordered the 14 oz. ribeye. The salmon was excellent and the portion was so large my wife was unable to eat it all! Everybody agreed their steak was cooked to perfection and was very tasty.

I've been here a few times and its alway been good. On previous visits I've had pasta dishes and they were excellent. But this time I went for the ribeye, and I must say, it was very good. Cooked right, seasoned right and a good size portion. My wife had the broiled fish filet with tomatoes and olive oil. She... More

Had dinner here with another couple at table on sidewalk; enjoyed street performers while dining. Three of us had rib eye steaks -- they were prepared carefully and were delicious although the cut was a little different from U.S. style. The 4th person loved the chicken marsala. Very friendly waitress from Argentina; when one of us accidentally left his credit... More

We had a wonderful meal at Los Gauchos. Great service and happily we just happened to have picked flamenco night without knowing. We stayed for both sets -- fabulous musicians and dancer. Another night we went back and watched young people dancing tango on the street in front. Seems a popular spot with the local community and the food is... More
