Gaucho - 25 Swallow St, London W1B 4QR

My Mum has come down to London for her birthday weekend, and she asked me to pick where I wanted to go to dinner. Obviously I wanted to choose somewhere that I love and enjoy eating at, but also somewhere that was suitable for my Mum and Step Dad. Hawksmoor is my favourite place for steak in London, but I couldn’t get a booking so late on a Friday evening. Therefore I went with Gaucho - my second favourite steak place.

Gaucho is a typical upmarket Argentinian steak house just off Regent Street. It’s quite a dark, menacing sort of look with chandeliers, leather and cow hide. It’s dark and moody with quite a night club style feel about it, which I didn’t remember and was a bit worried when we walked in. We sat down and ordered some cocktails, I had an espresso martini as they are my all time favourites! It was rich and smooth without a horrible bitter aftertaste you can often get with espresso martinis. It went down so smoothly I just had to have another.

 I had the rump steak (300g, medium) with chips and peppercorn sauce. My standard order for most steak places. I have no complaints about. I’ve had it a fair few times before so I knew was I was going to be getting and this time was no exception. It's super juicy and beefy with loads of flavour. I had to really force my way through the last few bites as it was such a huge slab of meat! But I managed to chomp my way throught the delicious peice of beef and after I felt quite full and satisfied!


My parents really liked the food, although I think it was a bit too noisy for them on reflection and Hawksmoor would have bee a little less trendy for them! Overall I love Gaucho , and I’d totally recommend going here if you’ve ever looking for an awesome steak place in London. It’s reasonably priced with a ton of different meaty options to suit your carnivorous needs!

  18. This is my absolute favourite place in London! The churrasco de lomo is by far the best steak in London. I am ridiculously jealous!

  20. I love Gaucho for a more exclusive meal, definitely try the one at Tower Bridge though, it has amazing views and a lovely fountain outside. The whole front of the building is glass so you can see right through! lvngldn.blogspot.co.uk xx
