Gaucho Set Lunch Menu: 12–3PM | Two Courses - £24.50 | Three Courses - £27.50 | Monday- Friday

Gaucho City is one of London’s hidden gems. The restaurant is set in the historic gold vaults of the Old Bank of England, right in the heart of the Square Mile across from the historic Leadenhall Market. Our menu features big Latin flavours, incredible Argentinian steak and impeccably curated wines.

Descending from the bustle of the banking district, join us for a more speedy set lunch or a long languorous steak dinner in our elegant private dining room. Venture a little further down to our candle-lit cocktail lounge which is the perfect spot for those after work drinks or for a spot of weekend escapism.

City is perfect for all of your social and corporate events with a plethora of dining rooms, AV and conference facilities.

    The lunch menu was fantastic! A great price too. I still have not forgotten the taste of the ceviche a day on and probably nor has the rest of my party! The steak was just perfect and the staff were super friendly and attentive. Couldn't have asked for a better work lunch for an occasion! Will be returning for sure.

    The service was outstanding. Christine was just a joy! The service was beaten only by the excellence of the Churrasco di Lomo - rare - and one of the finest pieces of beef I have had in a long time. Not cheap - but quality never is!!!!!!!

    Steak was not cooked to liking when requested to be cooked more was still not a liking. Everyone around us was also complaining as well about how their steak was being brought out. Due to this it was hard to enjoy the meal was not worth the £85 paid and thought some of it would’ve been refunded. The positive to the meal was that the cocktails were nice. Will not be visiting again.

    Service was friendly but inconsistent. My drink request was confused and coffee order wrong. Burrata and scallops starters were excellent. Steaks very good but plates cold and limp chips. Great bottle of Malbec. With a bill of £237 this restaurant should produce better.

    Great food, fantastic service - everyone friendly and helpful, our waitress was fab, she should be on stage somewhere! Wines decent but very pricey, could do with reviewing the list and reducing the silly premium that Gaucho appears to slap on any non-Argentinian plonk.

    It was ok…steak came out well before the side dishes. Steak was a bit undercooked for MR and was rather cold. Service was slow, but pleasant. Ordered dessert and was surprised how long it took to get some ice cream. I won’t return as I don’t think price matched value . Sorry.

    After reading the views we was very excited to attend, however we was quite disappointed. We had the sausage platter with 9 Sausages (4 different variety) it was very small but tasty. The bread didn't taste freshly made, almost as if the dough was made in the morning then frozen and bake before hand. I had the Maize Cancha Breaded Merluza (Breaded cod) I've tasted better fish at my local fish and chip shop only ate half. It came with 2 sauces so I ordered the broccoli and mashed potatoes on the side which was both very lovely. The broccoli wasn't too crunchy and the mash potatoes was buttery and smooth. My friend has the filet steak salad, with chips on the side. There was barely any steak in it and an overflow of salad. She didn't enjoy the meal much, also noted that the sauce had a weird flavour. For dessert I have the citrus flan which had Peanuts (didn't need it at all) looked and tasted more like a panna cotta but eas lovely and refreshing. My friend had the cheesecake, rich but lovely. Out waitress was super nice and friendly, very attentive. We didn't notice quite a few members of staff just standing/hanging around which felt a bit uncomfortable but it wasn't a busy night when we went. Overall I probably wouldn't go back was slightly disappointed, venue and ambience was lovely.

    Steak is good! I would like a wider selection of starters though and a more cost friendly wine list, lots of highly priced bottles but not much range at the lower end. It is still too dark in the restaurant though, so much so it is difficult to read menus.

    Not enough love in the food. Service was ok despite two items being missed in the order. Steak was lacking in seasoning which is disappointing given the cost. 70£ per head (1 cheap bottle of wine) isn’t too bad but too much for a poor meal.

    I booked this restaurant for my partners graduation however left disappointed. I've been to Gauchos before (Liverpool Street) and was sure the City branch would be just as good. I felt we didn't really get much attention from the waitress. The only time they were attentive was when they wanted to upsell us some starters. Two of our starters (macaroni cheese and chips) came out cold, we had to ask for them to be warmed up. The positive was that the food items were exchanged without question (then again they barely said anything, and walked away once taking the plates, an apology would have been nice). Also to bare in mind, we're not really people who complain. We also ordered the 1.2kg sharing platter, which was delicious and can't fault. For the price we paid, I would have appreciated a better level of customer service from the waiter/waitress. There were different people who served us at the beginning, then served us drinks, then returned the cold dishes, then gave us the bill. Having had this experience, I still paid the service charge out of politeness but its sincerely disappointing that I was so excited to treat my partner and the experience didn't live up to expectations. Gauchos is great, this branch was not.

    I’ve been to Gauch Chancdery Lane and enjoyed it. This was terrible. Too noisy - we asked for it to be turned down without success. Over half an hour to get our coffee/ tea. Steaks good but the vibe was poor, toilets dirty. I probably won’t go back to a Gaucho!

    Our return to Gaucho post Covid and it was good to see it so busy. We generally have the set lunch menu for internal events - it was a leaving lunch. Service was as good as ever, even tasting wines before selection. Everyone enjoyed themselves, good meat, and even went for dessert. It remains on our favourites in the area.

    Staff were all very friendly and helpful in recommendations. Food: steaks were absolutely delicious - no doubt about that, however some of the sides needed more attention and better quality ingredients in my opinion. Tomatoes could be of better quality and broccoli was quite hard and wiry, did not taste of much. Chimichurri sauce was way too oily. Dessert choices did not impress either so we did not order any although it was my partner’s birthday. Atmosphere: slightly odd interior, more like a bar/club rather than a restaurant, not my cup of tea, but it was busy and buzzing which is nice to see after all the pandemic months! All in all with the amount of steak houses out there and the hype around this one I would just expect a bit more refinement and attention to detail not just to the main speciality of the house, but to all the rest that comes with it:) I won’t be back as I prefer another steak place nearby for this reason, but was a lovely evening nonetheless. Thank you!

    Hadn’t been here for a while, and booked at short notice. Service was attentive and good. The steaks were great, as were the side dishes, empanadas etc. Overall value for money though is not great, and the wine in particular is expensive. Still, we had a good evening.
