Gaucho Manchester can be found located right in the centre of bustling Manchester - one of our favourite cities to visit. Gaucho Manchester has long been one of our “go-tos” for an excellent steak in the city, and it’s rare that we visit Manchester without paying Gaucho a visit. This time was no exception.

As one would expect from any restaurant in the Gaucho chain, the interiors of this restaurant boast wonderful cow hides that over the years have come to be iconic to the brand. With low level lighting and comfortable seating arrangements, Gaucho Manchester boasts a relaxed and sophisticated atmosphere that screams indulgence. Bringing Argentina to Manchester, you can expect a menu full of the finest Argentine steak cuts, as well as Argentinian wine and cocktails.

When we arrived we were greeted warmly and shown to our table, where we decided to begin our evening with a couple of non-alcoholic cocktails. I chose the Nora’s Garden, which saw Seedlip Garden mixed with beetroot shrub, lemon juice and rhubarb syrup. This punchy drink is incredibly tasty and a real treat even without alcohol. My partner chose The Rach Kombucha - Royal Flush, which was a mix of non-alcoholic Prosecco with rhubarb and white peach.

To begin our meal, my partner opted for the burrata and tomato salad to start, which is infused with winter truffle and served with aged balsamic and toasted sourdough. I chose the tuna ceviche served with avocado mousse, pickled radish, tomato and aguachile dressing. The real stand-out of both dishes was simply how fresh each and every ingredient was. The flavour combinations were excellent, however the flavours of each element on their own were simply outstanding due to how fresh they were. We were highly impressed.

“If you’re looking for a fantastic steak, you need look no further.”

For our main courses, I went for the 225g lomo steak - otherwise known as fillet - which is a very tender cut indeed. I also decided on their Chimichurri sauce along with a topping of their

Grilled Argentine gambas. My partner decided on the ancho - otherwise known as ribeye - which boasts wonderful marbling, along with the peppercorn sauce. The steaks themselves come from premium Black Angus cattle which are bred in Argentina. These cows graze on seventeen types of grass and live a free-range lifestyle. Gaucho hand picks the farms that provide their steaks, meaning only the best make the cut, and it really shows in the quality of the meat they serve. Alongside our steaks, we also enjoyed sides of creamed mashed potatoes, spinach with garlic and lemon and chips with thyme salt.

For dessert, my partner chose the wonderfully decadent chocolate fondant that came served with dulce de leche ice cream. I chose two scoops of their chocolate and vanilla Argentine ice cream. We also enjoyed a pot of fresh mint tea to complete our evening, which made for the most refreshing finale.

Once again, we were highly impressed by Gaucho Manchester and will certainly be returning during our next visit to the wonderful city that is Manchester. We strongly urge you to visit as we’re certain you will not be disappointed. If you’re looking for a fantastic steak, you need look no further.
