Harden's survey result
For 25 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. This year diners have submitted over 60,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK.
As “a place to impress”, especially on business, these well-known Argentinian steak houses are still well-recommended by some reporters for their “fine steaks” and “fabulous South American wines”. Even fans can find the bill “noticeably painful” however, particularly given the “indifferent” service, and critics feel the overall offering is “bland” and “outrageously overpriced”.
“It used to be so good, what happened?” London’s first upscale contemporary steak-house chain still wins praise for its “pretty fine Argentinian meat”, and “wonderful” Latino wines, but its glitzy (sometimes “very loud and very dark”) branches have increasingly “lost their charm”. “Stratospheric” prices are the main issue, and “with so many good steak options at all levels these days, it’s hard to see where Gaucho fits in”.
“The steaks are great… but value for money it ain’t!”; this “plush and glitzy” chain does still win fans for its “succulent” imported Argentinean meat, “excellent” south American wines, and “dramatic” decor, but it has many critics nowadays too, particularly regarding its “ludicrous” prices.
“Did they fly the meat in from Argentina on a private jet?” – this “opulent” and business-friendly chain offers “beautiful” steaks and a “fabulously diverse Argentinian wine list”, but its “exploitative” prices are becoming a major turn-off for some reporters.
