Gaucho Set Menu: 12–7PM Two Courses - £24.00 | Three Courses - £28.00

You’ll struggle to find a better view or steak along the Southbank than at Gaucho Tower Bridge. Our restaurant soars over two, magnificent glass-fronted floors with panoramas of the historic London skyline with the Tower of London and Tower Bridge taking centre stage.
In warm and uncomplicated interiors, Gaucho Tower Bridge is the perfect location for guests to enjoy dusk to dawn dining, with our menu showcasing impeccable Argentinian steaks and Latin American plates. Our terrace, secluded cocktail bar, and private dining rooms offer a tranquil yet sophisticated experience with beautiful views across the River Thames. We cannot recommend enough ordering a bottle of one of our premium wines, taking a seat at the window and watching the sunset riverside.

We were table of 6, I personally rang to ask for table by window as we were celebrating 2 birthdays, we were put on table at the back in the corner, next to where staff are up & down, very noisy with kitchen / service noise. No option to move, only tables for 6 are at the back - why wasn’t this communicated when I rang? Very separate from rest of restaurant, so no ambiance or ‘buzz’. Really rubbish. Food was ok - side orders & sauces were expensive, not very hot either . I had the blue cheese hollandaise sauce - no flavour of blue cheese at all! Overall if you like a good steak dinner, go to miller & Carter, Much, much nicer & more reasonably priced. Would have been happy to pay an expensive bill - if worth it - this isn’t.

Service was really slow. I mentioned we were there for a business meeting and it ended up being almost 2 hours until we were done and half the table had to leave earlier. Very slow it was 45 minutes until we were able to put an order in for food and for that time all we had was 1 bottle of water between 5 people and no drinks were offered either. We tried to get the waiters attn multiple times but it was almost as if they were avoiding eye contact it was that difficult to get attn!

Apart from the first impression of seeing all the meat everything else after that was poor. Food was not hot which effected the taste of the food. Poor communication from the waiter and the other staff lead to a mix up with our food. Just a poor experience for my wife birthday.

Ha a wonderful dinner - a surprise for my husband. Service was fabulous. Our waitress was from Albania and was very attentive. Only slight disappointment was in my booking notes I noted it was a surprise 40th and they missed that.

The place is lovely, food is absolutely delicious, the steak is one of the best I ever eaten. The price is quite high indeed but it's worst it. The service is great, Lukasz was an amazing host and made the night very special for us!
I definitely recommend it!

I came here with my mum before a show and everything was amazing! Our waiter Christian was so lovely and really made an effort. My mum always has trouble catching the attention of wait staff but with Christian it’s like he knew exactly when we needed him! The food was absolutely incredible and the drinks were delicious! I would absolutely dine again, but maybe wouldn’t sit near the window as it was quite cold.

Steak ordered medium rare and came back medium done, then when cooked again came back blue....then they charged us extra for the dough ball that has never happened before. Also when we ordered tap water, they given us bottle stillwater, and charged us for it.

Extremely poor service. Had to continuously ask for multiple items to be brought to the table after they had been ordered and repeatedly missed. Complete lack of competence/ignorance shown by our waiter and time taken to get the simplest missing items was shocking, like for example, the sauce for the steaks - had to ask 2 waiters and took so long to arrive all the mains had gone cold. Was surprised this was the worst experience of any of the Gaucho's we've visited, really distasteful.

I was thoroughly impressed with the service and the food. We were celebrating a special birthday and our waiter ensured that all our needs were met. The attention to detail was second to none. The food was fabulous and with the views from our table we had a fabulous time. I would definitely recommend the restaurant and hope to return soon.

I would recommend it to a friend. (Actually a relative recommended it to me). Steaks fabulous but must say not totally impressed with accompaniments (vegetables, etc). Desserts run of the mill also. But if anyone wants a fabulous steak you must go.

We were here for a family celebration meal at the weekend. Steaks were really great and we enjoyed them a lot! However, there were several mistakes with our orders from Starters to Mains. That wasn't so much of an issue, as our waitress was very nice and delivered great service. However, I really do think Gaucho is incredibly overpriced and overhyped and I don't believe it was good value for money. It's very expensive for what it is and I everything is charged for, from the tiniest pop of sauce we got with our steaks down to the butter on our table...we didn't even order bread, but it came anyway and we were under the impression that it was complimentary. Turns out it wasn't. There was a bit of grit in my mum's starter as well and our drinks were filled with ice, but charged at premium prices. A nice night out because of the location and atmosphere, but I don't think it was good enough to warrant a return.

Cristian was very friendly and welcoming, the food was out of this world an unbelievable experience. We thoroughly enjoyed the meat demonstration, selecting our cuts of steak and felt this really added a sense of pride in to the work you guys do! And a very special thank you for my partners birthday cake, a very special ending to a lovely night! We will definitely be returning!

Overall this was very mediocre, the steak was nice but not great, a little dry and just slightly overcooked - not enough to send back but enough to notice.

We felt under pressure to add on lots of extras like the spoonful of green stuff (olive oil and some herbs I think - maybe to counteract the dryness of the steak?) at £3 that added nothing to the meal, and to buy far more expensive wine than we wanted to as the 3 less expensive bottles we selected were "stuck on a ship from Argentina".

Absolutely everything, vegetables, salad, potatoes is extra.

Service was overly fussy, we were constantly interrupted, wine glasses topped up before we had even drank anything (but interestingly not the tap water....)

I expected a lot more for the £164 we paid for 2 people .

We wont be going back.
