Gaucho offers a fantastic selection of authentic Argentinian cooking, where every dish reflects the passionate people and beautiful flavours that the country is renowned for. The innovative menu specialises in Argentinian beef fed on rich Pampas grass, and the quality of the meat is consistently incredible. The starters menu features a range of meaty and spicy options, like the smoked Argentine chorizo on a bed of spring onion, as well as lighter options such as the beautiful crab causita with avocado and lime, if you want to save room for your mains. The mains offer something for everyone, with favourites including the Lomo a Milanesa, a tenderised fillet steak rubbed in chilli and parsley then coated with breadcrumbs. The side options are very tempting, too, with twice-cooked sweet potato chips and chorizo being the house speciality. You can even finish off with a gorgeous dessert sampler, with options ranging from dulche de leche profiteroles to a fresh lime parfait with vanilla peaches.
If you fancy something a little different for Sunday Lunch, Gaucho is famous for their Argentinian array of decadent options, like the whole leg of slow-roast lamb to share, though this lunch is extremely coveted so pre-booking is essential.
