Gaucho Charlotte Street
You don’t want to feel herded at an Argentinian steak restaurant. Thankfully, despite the huge dining area and familiar cow-skin decor, this branch of the Gaucho chain maintains a personal, attentive touch. Front-of-house staff look after coats, while waiters describe the steaks with the gory aid of a board topped with raw examples. A pre-starter of complimentary rustic bread augured well for the meat; it was plain-looking but big on flavour. To follow, each portion of a ceviche sampler (prawn, trout, mackerel) was two mouthfuls at most. Beautifully presented, it was a feast primarily for the eyes. Empanadas were good but seemed overpriced. For the main event, an easy chewing bife de cuadril (rump) was superior to the more expensive bife de ancho (ribeye) in both taste and texture. Each cut can be cranked up in weight – a popular option with the expense-account diners that Gaucho attracts. Accompaniments were variable: chimichurri sauce was bland and leafy, more suited to bread dipping than as an accompaniment to grilled meat; however, chips were good, a side dish of tenderstem broccoli in wasabi dressing was cooked just-so, and the flavours of a tomato salad were robust.

The steaks at Gaucho are great, but I found this Charlotte Street venue a little 'cold'. It didn't have a great atmosphere when we went during the week and even though there were quite a few people in the restaurant, it was very quiet which made it feel awkward. I probably wouldn't go back to this location, but I'd be keen to try a busier one.

This is definitely the type of place to go for  treat.  Whilst the steak is fantastic, everything else on the menu can be a little overpriced.

The ceviche was nice, but small.  The tomato salad was nice.  Only the beef empanada was worth trying, the other fillings are not as tasty.

The atmosphere, drinks, etc. are all nice accompaniments to an event if you are celebrating something special.

Be warned: to choose your steak you will be required to choose from a wooden board of raw meats.

A great place on a great street - we went for a quick drink or two in Charlotte St Hotel and then popped over the road to some of the best steak and red in town. The restaurant itself is in the basement, with the usual decked out cow hide interior. Generally busy all week so best to book - the atmosphere is one of lunching/dining professionals, and tends to be full of media types, so one to avoid if you're not into that sort of crowd. But if you're into great steak in civilised surroundings then definitely one to check out


I absolutely wouldn't give this restaurant 3 stars but 5. I went in few weeks ago with my fiancee to celebrate our engagement. We've been served by a little italian waitress, full of sprint, humor and knowledge. She gave us really good advise. Food was outstanding, the wine worked so well with our food, great recommendation. The entire meal was spotless and the service was the best ever. I will definitely recommend this restaurant to all my friends and family. I want to thank again the cheeky neapolitan waitress that made my engagement even more special.
