Steak and Riverside Views at Gaucho Richmond

Want to find the juiciest steak restaurant in Richmond? Then look no further than Gaucho, one of the restaurants we repeatedly go back to for the ever so moreish Argentinian steak, premium wines, and decadent desserts. 

Situated right on the picturesque banks of the River Thames, Gaucho Richmond stands as an emblem of Argentine culinary excellence. With its vibrant ambiance, succulent steaks, and impeccable service, Gaucho offers customers a gastronomic journey through the heart of Argentina.

As you step into the restaurant, you’re greeted by sleek and modern decor, with a hint of South American flair. The mood lighting in the dining area exudes sophistication, creating an intimate atmosphere perfect for a romantic dinner or celebratory gathering with a 360-degree view of the Thames – the restaurant really comes alive during the summer months with its waterside terrace for riverside dining in the sun.

Gaucho’s menu is a celebration of Argentina’s rich culinary heritage, with a focus on premium cuts of beef sourced from carefully chosen producers in Argentina, along with grass-fed British breeds. The moment you peruse the menu, you’re tempted by an array of enticing options, each dish promising a taste sensation. 

The star of the show at Gaucho is undeniably the steak and if you are indecisive like us, then fear not! Your waiter will guide you through the menu by presenting a platter board with various cuts of raw beef, where each cut will be described in precise detail. Gaucho’s speciality cuts that shouldn’t be missed – our highlight being the Churrasco E Lomo, a juicy but oh so tender cut which is marinated in garlic, parsley and olive oil and the oh so lean and tender fillet which is packed with flavour – the chateaubriand undoubtably being in a league of its own.

Whether you prefer your meat rare, medium, or well-done, Gaucho’s expert chefs deliver perfection with every cut. The Argentine beef, aged to perfection and cooked to your exact specifications, melts in your mouth, leaving you craving for more. Each bite is a revelation, showcasing the superior quality and exquisite flavour that sets Argentine steak apart from the rest.

Accompanying the steaks are an assortment of delectable sides and sauces, each crafted to complement the richness of the meat. From creamy mashed potato to sautéed vegetables and chimichurri sauce, every element on the plate is thoughtfully curated to enhance your dining experience.

While steak is undoubtedly the main attraction, Gaucho offers a diverse selection of dishes to cater to tantalize your taste buds. Seafood lovers can indulge in fresh trout ceviche or succulent grilled sea bass, while vegetarians can savour flavourful empanadas, mushroom tagliatelle or hearty salads bursting with seasonal ingredients.

, Gaucho boasts an extensive wine list featuring an impressive selection of Argentinian wineries – from robust Malbecs to the characterful Torrontés variety, each wine is carefully chosen to complement the flavours of the cuisine, elevating your dining experience to new heights. If you prefer cocktails then fear not, there is a wide range of decadent cocktails to choose from, including a firm favourite of the Arcadia team; the Lychee Blossom.

No restaurant visit is complete without sampling a dessert, right? It would be rude not to indulge in the Argentinian national treasure dessert; dulce de leche with a salted cheesecake twist, served with toasted marshmallows. The seriously comforting and gooey tray baked cookie dough is also another taste sensation. 

Whether you’re a steak connoisseur or simply seeking an unforgettable dining experience, Gaucho delivers on every front, making it a must-visit destination for food enthusiasts.
