Gaucho reflects the passion, people, lifestyle, culture and rich food and wine offering of Modern Argentina:

The gaucho (Argentine cowboy) tending to cattle grazing in the lush meadows of ‘Las Pampas’, bountiful vineyards in the foothills of the dramatic, mineral rich Andes mountain range, the iconic asado BBQ and the modern tango shows of Buenos Aires are inspirations (and a suitable backdrop) to enjoy the world’s most tender (carbon-neutral) steaks, Latin American cuisine, accompanied by the UK’s most expansive selection of indigenous Malbec wines, and beyond.

Gaucho began in 1993 at Swallow Street Piccadilly, London. The restaurant group has grown to eighteen restaurants and has enjoyed both public and critical acclaim in recent years, most latterly winning CITY AM, Business of the Year, Springboard, ‘Sustainable Restaurant of the Year’ and is currently shortlisted for 2023 Catey’s ‘Restaurant Group of the Year’

Serving carbon-neutral steak, fine wines & classic cocktails, our Argentinian steak restaurant in the West End is perfect for weekday lunches, after-work drinks & Sunday roasts.

Drawing inspiration from the artistic spaces of Covent Garden and the passion-fuelled tango clubs of Buenos Aires, the restaurant is layered with iconic design statements that reflect the cultural roots of the locality, while the base palette draws influence from our Argentinian origins.

The ground floor of our restaurant boasts a bright and welcoming atmosphere, perfect for breakfast, relaxed working lunches, or afternoon drinks. The basement takes on a darker, more theatrical atmosphere offering a more intimate dining experience, with pleated curtain wall details inspired by the grand red-draped stage curtains from the West End Theatres.

Every Friday and Saturday, be transported to the tango halls of Buenos Aires with our live Secret Tango show from 10.30pm with some of the best dancers in town, all accompanied by our late night menu, cocktails and the largest collection of Argentine wine outside of the country.
