This is my 2nd time in this place. Although they carry the similar name with london chain ambiance and decoration is very different. Finding an english speaking waiter is also very hard but ordering via ipad and seeing pictures and translations are easing the process. The food is good on both visits but wine is prohibitively expensive. A wine list... More

Steaks are of highest quality (raw meat is brought to your table for choosing), wines are of high quality too, as well as the service. But the prices are also high - understandable 'cause meat and wines are brought from Argentina. Worth a try and a repeat if you are a steak aficionado. Though nice seafood selection too.

Argentinian steak with very spicy (chili) sauce - simply fantastic. It melts in the mouth! Some of the staff speak very limited English, but they certainly do their utmost to help, assist and make your visit outstanding.

While we visited El Gaucho in different countries, each one was totally different. Here in Moscow meat was very good and perfectly cooked. However the prices for meat and wine were very expensive. Also, unlike in other countries, the meat does not come with side dish or salad-you have to order that in addition. Extra sauce is an extra charge... More

Nice atmosphere and food. It was a pity that the dinner was not the best for me (and my 2 other friends) because the waiter first visibly gave us the impression to be ennoyed just because we said "no, thank you" to the question "do you wan some starter", and then, instead of the filet I've ordered , I realized...

Excellent food and good service... food is adequately sized for portions but is pricey. Be sure to take your wallet... very overpriced

Neighbourhood Profile
It wouldn’t be a mistake to call Pyatnitskaya street the main axis of this neighborhood – turn one direction and you’ll find the Tretyakov Gallery in Lavrushinsky Lane, turn another – a hip Scandinavian restaurant. Old churches now embrace contemporary life with style and grace. Going to Zamoskvorechye is like visiting during the times when it was a medieval Russian quarter, but with a modern twist of 20th century buildings pushing themselves into the 21st century with new businesses opening weekly. Stroll down Pyatnitskaya to taste dozens of global cuisines – from Ukrainian and Georgian to Thai and American.
