You’ll find this elegant and rustic Argentinian restaurant on Gouger Street in Adelaide’s city centre. Gaucho’s is popular for a very good reason though, so reserve your table now.
Always an amazing experience with delicious food. Tasty steaks and excellent sides! Who knew broccoli could taste so good! The only let down was it was incredibly noisy inside and we couldn’t hear each other and the tables were squashed together. Not exactly intimate or romantic.
Impeccable service and excellent menu choices. Both table and bar service were attentive and knowledgeable and despite being very busy staff remained aware of our table’s needs. Terrific location for business lunch.
Food was really tasty and well presented and there was a fantastic variety. The staff were attentive, helpful and very friendly! Overall it was a super experience.
