We had a pleasant service but disappointing food. The entrecote had tough bits and did not resemble at all the piece of meat we were shown before it was cooked. The entrecote on the bone, was huge and impressive, but sadly, the medium rare requested, came totally blue, slightly seared on the outside. It was very cheewy and stringy. The... More

We were in El Gaucho Eilat for dinner on our wedding anniversary. Staff was very nice and professional. They were able to accommodate our every request, their recommendations were excellent and the food was great. Also, quite romantic restaurant even though we didn't expect it.

We always go there when we're in Eilat, the service is good as is the food. We try to come on time for the business lunch- a very good deal. Also, don't miss out on the desserts!!

Had been told of this restaurant as a place that we could buy meat to BBQ at home during the sabbath (never established whether this was true) Had an excellent meal, eating in. Steaks were of high quality and were excellently cooked, sides and drinks were also nice. The only black mark was the service. After we were served our... More

I went to this great restaurant several years ago and try to go each time I am in Eilat, the food is great, the service is great. I feel like at home at El Gaucho. I wrote that I visited at Oct 2015 because this is the oldest option valid, I believe I visited before that date. But still I... More

Never eaten at the restaurant but I frequently swing through and grab steaks for home cooking. We get amazing quality steaks for a great price with a delicious sauce. If you don't fancy eating out but want good quality meat then this place is worth the visit. Head to the back of the restaurant and knock yourself out.
