Gaucho Set Menu: 12–7PM | Two Courses - £24.00 | Three Courses - £28.00 / Electro Brunch Every: Saturday | 11pm - 4pm

Piccadilly is our flagship restaurant, set in a beautiful townhouse just off Regent Street, encompassing the ultimate Gaucho experience in the West End. Impeccable Argentinian steaks, flavours of Latin America and a perfectly curated drinks list are all enjoyed in uncompromised elegance in the former home of a Spanish Ambassador.

This impressive restaurant boasts a variety of unique spaces that soar over three stories. At ground level, you have our warm and welcoming dining room with adjoining weather-proof terrace. As you ascend the original sweeping staircase, you’ll find another dining space with a spectacular open kitchen, where we host our legendary Electro brunch, as well as a myriad of gorgeous private rooms – one inspired by our former Spanish resident.

We’ve only ever been to the Leeds gaucho so first time experiencing the Piccadilly restaurant.
Everything was just as lovely!

Waiter was always trying to push his agenda of what we should eat. Ruining the atmosphere. Not expected to be treated as such in this place

The restaurant was very noisy and the food not as good as I have had before at Gaucho’s some years ago. Very expensive for what it was, you sit too close to other guests

We had specified that it was a meal for a special occasion, we were given a tiny table squashed in-between people so couldn't really talk properly - bit awkward. We waited 45 mins for 2 drinks, when they arrived they were incorrect, when we pointed this out the blonde waitress was moody and rude. Food took so long to come that we asked to cancel the starter as it was getting late (nearly 11pm - our table was booked for 10) we were told that wouldn't be possible. Main's tasted great but the replacement for the incorrect drink didn't come until the end of the mains, so I had waited 1 hour 15 mins for my correct drink and only had tap water until the end of my main. The very slow & bad service totally let the whole experience down, not good enough for a £160 meal really. We come to Gaucho for our anniversary every year but would never come back to the Piccadilly branch.

Lovely restaurant although we won’t be going back on a Friday evening as it was incredible loud with a lot of drunk people! Our table was booked for 7.30. We didn’t get seated until gone 8pm. Service was slow. The food was good although the rump steak was a little tough to cut with a normal knife as steak knives were not provided.

We didn’t stay for dessert as it got so loud and raucous with drunk men that we decided to leave.

Other Gauchos are much more enjoyable.

Service was very good. Food was average, we’ve had better there. We had what I would call the house wine, our selection wasn’t available so we went for the first bottle of Malbec on the wine list rather than the more expensive bottles, it was however dis-appointing, that however was our choice but we have had better house wine there before. It was extremely noisy all night, so overall I don’t think we would visit again for a while.

We were shown to the bar for pre lunch drinks. The barman decided that ignoring customers was a good idea. Ordered their own wine from their own vineyard. Non available because "the boat from Argentina was delayed". Finally found 2 bottles of their own wine. First one was corked, second OK.

Overpriced and trading on former glory. I wonder if their business problems are beginning to have a major impact on the experience they give.

I'm sure the 4 women chatting behind reception and a doorman are all really important to get decent food and wine to the guests. Form over function. A fall from grace.

The whole experience was excellent. Our server was extremely personable and knowledgable, and the steaks were delicious. Monday night a-la-carte diners can bring their own favourite tipple with no charge for corkage, leaving more budget for food.

I used to be a huge fan of gauchos, the food used to be amazing and the energy was peaceful. Now the food isn't that great it looks like the restaurant has cut the portions but are still the same price, my friend payed 3.50 for a coke she took the ice out of her coke and it was less than half a glass full it wasn't a full can of coke put into her cup it was half the can. She then asked for another coke without ice and you could tell the man wasn't happy about that as he told her the coke would be flat without the ice and is she sure about that.. When her coke came without ice she was given a Smaller glass with again half a can of coke in it.. However I didn't enjoy my meal or my time there I will not be returning any time soon.

Have eaten at Gaucho previously, not the Piccadilly restaurant, and the food quality seemed to go down. So was with slight hesitation that I booked. However Gaucho is now part of M Group and the food was absolutely fantastic. The stake was one of the best I have had in a number of years. Really excellent quality and despite the restaurant being really busy, staff were very attentive and only to happy to help. One slight gripe, they no longer serve the oil with the bread. However would still rate my experience 100%

Excellent food, the set menu with a glass of bubbly for £35 was great value. The service was attentive and friendly. The only negatives were that the lighting was so dark we could only read our menus by the light if the table candle and with some large parties in the noise level got really loud.

The main point is that the food, from starters to the outstanding meat main courses to the desserts, was close to perfect. These people just serve a great steak, period. The small downside was that the Piccadilly restaurant was a bit "busy" and somehow restless (which some people would surely consider to be a good thing), especially compared to the one on Sloane Avenue which was a bit more "sophisticated". But this was Saturday night and the place was packed, so cannot really complain.

From the moment we arrived, I was struck by the ambiance of the restaurant. I had booked for one of my best friends 30th birthday and it did not disappoint. The food was outstanding (best steak in the UK) and the service was amazing; the staff were attentive (kept our drinks topped up) and knowledgeable (offering suggestions for cuts and how it should be cooked). It is a must-go-to place for any meat lover. I couldn’t fault it.

Very impressed with the food and service. One of our party was celebrating a new job and we were pleasantly surprised when we receive a complimentary drink each as we had not mentioned it on booking. A member of staff must have been very observant to notice the “new job” card. We had the platter of 4 steaks which was excellent. Thanks for a memorable evening
