Paid almost $50 for a 10 ounce steak. Ordered it rare, asked to please no overcook. They brought the steak on a platter that had a flame under it that was still cooking the steak. The steak was cooked medium with the edges being well...done. Talked to the waiter who gave a song and dance how aged beef cooks and that the steak was actually cooked to rare. Quickly realized that was wasting my time as they were unwilling to do anything to correct it. I ended up eating the terrible overcooked steak, the very center, about 2 bites that were cooked rare were very tasty.More

Good food but after we said 10 times we want a chorizo(sausage) they brought us a steak chorizo that is of course 3 times more pricy than a normal chorizo... we were kind of angry. Seems like they did that on purpose, saying they don’t...speak English.
Service okay.. price kind of high but acceptable.

This is not an Argentinian restaurant. The food was awful except for the french fries. The first problem is that they do not speak English or Spanish so when you ask they say anything that comes to mind. It was very expensive and the service...not very good. I do not recommend this restaurantMore
We went to this restaurant to try "Argentinean " steaks, which considered to be one of the best. At least that what we had during our Argentina's trip. But this restaurant offers mediocre quality meet for the price above the top quality steaks you may...find in other steakhouses in Moscow (like Bison, T bone or Voronezh and others).
Thus I do not see any single reason to come back here, since you may find better meat at lower prices around the city. The only thing we liked is a quality of service.More
The meat comes to you over a small grilling plate so you could continue grilling your steak right on the table.
When it comes to steaks, the grade of the meat is what makes it or breaks it, these guys are making it easy for...themselves and simply serving grade AAA+ meet (I made this grade up) :) but really a superb meat quality!
The result: a brilliant steak, must try when in Moscow .. !More

Walid-971 ,thanks for the feedback , always glad to see you!
El Gaucho was the first place in Moscow where I tryied Angus beef many years ago. At that time it was definatley the best meat in town. Today's visit was more a dissappointment. The atmosphere and service remained on very high level but the meat...was far from perfect. We had two different (quite expensive steaks) - chateaubrian and rib-eye and both of them were tasteless, strangely cooked and difficult to chew. They were not tasty comparing to other numerous steakhouses existing in Moscow.
I would recommend to go to other steak houses where meat is usually cheper and far more tastier.More
