    We’re Gaucho regulars but first time at the Covent Garden branch and it didn’t disappoint! Great location just across the road from Covent Garden station. Staff were very friendly and accommodating with allergy and dietary requirements and our waiter, Alex, really took the time to make sure it was all correct. Be mindful that they don’t have a completely separate kitchen so there are risks of cross contamination but someone called me before the booking to confirm if this was okay, which I really appreciated. Lovely food as always, the sirloin was halal when we went but it can change so call ahead to confirm.

    Me and my friends had an amazing evening eating here. The food was absolutely amazing. I enjoyed every moment of it. Our waitress Cibele was very kind, accommodating and incredibly helpful. She displayed the various cuts, suggested great options and made the dinner a very special experience. She was very attentive to the table, ensuring the wine glasses remained full and water was always available, table was kept clean and personally made sure the food was perfect for us. The kitchen staff are very talented, cooking our steaks and various foods with perfectly with precision. It was a pleasure to have eaten there and hope to return again.

    We enjoyed a pleasant late lunch here on a Wednesday afternoon to celebrate my partner's birthday. I ordered the Cuadril (Rump) cooked medium rare. The flavor had a strong charcoal note, with a slightly burnt taste on the exterior, but the interior was very juicy, tender, and delicious. The steak did not include any sides, so you need to order those separately from the menu. The staff was very thoughtful and added birthday wishes to the dessert, which they kindly provided free of charge. Such a lovely gesture! The restaurant is ideally located right next to the tube station in Covent Garden. We had a delightful meal here.

    A lovely Brazilian / Argentinian restaurant, a great selection of steaks and sides. Lovely food but steaks were cold when they came out so once we pointed those out the manager was great and offered to pop that back on or get us new ones then took £20 pounds off the bill as a good will gesture. Save room for the desserts they were fantastic! Cool vibe with a DJ, maybe a little loud for anyone with difficulty in hearing.
