We had a late dinner here, consisting of both a meat dish (skirt steak) and veggie options. As only one of us eat meat, the accommodations on the menu were actually very good. The meat comes on a charcoal "BBQ", which allows you to come to the perfect doneness. The staff was very friendly, which made a pleasant visit all... More

The salad and mushrooms we had for starters were good, the steaks were also good (not as great as you expect in an Argentinian restaurant), the backed potato as side dish was poor. the service was good, although the offering of sauce was poor - we had to ask... The price was over $ 50 per person excluding service -... More

This is why we git there on the first place, but they don't use them no more. The tall glasses were... More

We had a pleasant service but disappointing food. The entrecote had tough bits and did not resemble at all the piece of meat we were shown before it was cooked. The entrecote on the bone, was huge and impressive, but sadly, the medium rare requested, came totally blue, slightly seared on the outside. It was very cheewy and stringy. The... More

We were 8 people, 6 stakes which were all not cooked enough. The manager was very nice, she apologized and replaced 2 of the stakes to new ones. It didn't take too long and our 2 new stakes came out, again, my stake was not cooked enough. I ask to cook it more and it came out still not cooked... More

We were in El Gaucho Eilat for dinner on our wedding anniversary. Staff was very nice and professional. They were able to accommodate our every request, their recommendations were excellent and the food was great. Also, quite romantic restaurant even though we didn't expect it.

We always go there when we're in Eilat, the service is good as is the food. We try to come on time for the business lunch- a very good deal. Also, don't miss out on the desserts!!

Had been told of this restaurant as a place that we could buy meat to BBQ at home during the sabbath (never established whether this was true) Had an excellent meal, eating in. Steaks were of high quality and were excellently cooked, sides and drinks were also nice. The only black mark was the service. After we were served our... More
