Evoking the essence of Argentinian cooking, Gaucho Smithfield offers a passionately compiled mix of steaks, classic South American recipes, and drinks compiled by a 'Bartender of the Decade' award winner. Contrasting with the simplicity and richness of the dishes, the sultry, clean-cut dining room pays homage to its meat-focused menu, decked out in smooth leather and spotted cow hide. A 150-strong wine list celebrates Argentina's unrivalled growing regions and includes some supreme rare bottles, while the cocktail list takes inspiration from Buenos Aires culture from 1930 through to 1960.

Desert lovely too. All enjoyed with a few...more

Silly cowhide seats and mirrored everything aside, the food was tasty!
They have lots of meat options to choose from depending on your hunger and/or wallet. And their flan is uuuumazing. I think Im just a sucker for anything custardy. mmmmm.

OK Veggies, you'd best stay away, unless you want a chopping board full of raw meat waved under your noses and the view of a restaurant full of carnivorous people chewing into great big hunks of juicy, succulent beef.
This is my second Gaucho's experience and it was very similar to the first. Dark lighting - check, thin concertina menus - check, cowhide everywhere - check,...more
