We were looking for a great place for steaks and decided to try Gaucho after eating next door at Zuma the night before. We were not disappointed!

The Filet medallions were cooked perfectly and so flavorful. You can order serveral sauces, so we tried them all. They were all delicious but the steaks really didn't need it. We tried several appetizers and none of them were disappointing- the Duck Confit salad, fried provone, salmon ceviche, and shrimp skewers. The portions were also realistic, not too big but not too small- enough to share and get a taste of everything with leaving feeling like you need to be rolled out to the taxi.

The decor is beautiful inside, very modern and shiny (i can't think of a better word). I thought the restaurant was just as good as Ruth's Chris in the Marina, but much closer when you don't want to go down to the Marina area.

The waiting staff were very knowledgable, friendly and super helpful. The food was divine, we had the empanadas to start followed by the chateaubriand and everything was cooked perfectly.
It is an expensive place, so don't expect a cheap meal, but the quality of food, atmosphere and service elevate it above a lot of other steak restaurants in Dubai.
My only niggle was as it was a little quieter our food came out super quickly. We'd only just finished our starters when the steak came. When ordering we should have asked for a short break between course, but we didn't.
On the positive, the speed would have been good for business lunches etc!

It's just like every other Gaucho restaurant I have been too. Great steak at a premium price.

Located as it is right in front of hugely popular Zuma in DIFC, Gaucho has no option but be very good to attract clientele who will pay top dirhams to eat its steaks. It does that with plenty of aplomb! Decor is unusual, with black and white color scheme. Starters are good but the highlight is certainly the steaks. And while the cuts being whizzed in front of you by a helpful waiter can be off-putting to some, the explanation helps in making a good choice. The portions are large and extra large. Perhaps, adding a smaller portion will help. And, some tables are rather small in size!
The wine selection is pretty good too. Our Melbec was superb.
Expect to pay approx $150 -200 per person for dinner with starters, steak and wine. Well worth it, though,especially if you are celebrating something.

The food was great. We had SALMON CEVICHE, CHORIZO SAUSAGE, and EMPANADAS for starters and all was amazingly delicious. For the main we ordered steaks which came juicy and very tender. The Sea-bream fish was excellent also. The restaurant was great but expensive.
