First proper steak post-lockdown with a good friend and it was superb. The staff were very attentive and went to great lengths to explain the health measures taken to us. A wonderful evening.

We had dinner from the set menu on 10/07/2020 at 15:45. For starters we had Ceviche which was lacking in flavour and absolutely did not taste lime that it supposed to he marinated in.

For mains my partner had Hake which was not seasoned and overcooked, also mushrooms were undercooked. I had Chicken Milanese that was very dry also not seasoned and looked and tasted of old meat.

For desert we had a brownie that tasted like it was made out of Cacao and was very dry.

Also service was extremely poor and we haven't even been offered tap of water. When asked for a bill we waited 20minutes and the restaurant wasn’t even busy.

We usually have great time at Goucho but this time it was extremely disappointing and our evening was ruined.

Hopefully you can improve the food quality and service especially when we spending the amount of money we spent expecting to get value for money.

Food, service, etc. was good. But price was a rip-off. £200 for a two persons lunch. Three glasses of wine (no bottle) and no desert. At the right price (£125 to £150) I would have given four starts. Won't be repeating. Can have one star Michelin level at that price level

The roast dinner is the worst I have ever had in my life, overpriced, small portion and not homemade Yorkshire puddings! They say unlimited but that never happened.

I can’t deny the service is excellent but I won’t be returning on a Sunday for a roast dinner.

Excellent value with 3 course set menu and glass of fizz for £35. They even let us swap the fizz for wine which was much appreciated.

The steak was superb as always.

Much busier than when I last visited a couple years ago which lended itself to a better atmosphere.

Will return for sure!

Thursday night in Canary Wharf after work & decided to pop in with some friends for dinner. Food was very nice however the service was slow and the waiter not very attentive despite there not being many tables to cater for. Overall was a good experience however not the best I have seen from other Gaucho restaurants across London.
