Serving Legendary Sunday Roast | We're Dog-Friendly

Proudly situated in the Hampstead Village community, with its quaint alleyways and perfectly preserved Georgian buildings, Gaucho Hampstead is a neighbourhood retreat in North London.

A stone’s throw from Hampstead Heath, our welcoming and contemporary interiors are the perfect place to enjoy a relaxed lunch, an after school treat or you can join us with the whole family on a Sunday for one of our legendary roasts.

One of our favourite features of the restaurant is our stunning, courtyard terrace with a traditional ‘Asado’ fire pit – where we barbeque in the summer and snuggle with blankets in the winter.

For all you Hampstead dog walkers, four-legged friends are always welcome for when you are snout and about.

    The food and drink were a very good quality and outstanding value, the main waiter was excellent. I think some of the other waiters could have had some better training, but they tried to help so no complaints; the entire experience was 5stars.

    Went to Gaucho Hampstead for a weekday lunch to celebrate a friends birthday and found it very quiet, as in not many people present. Those few of us who were there were all gravitating to the rear of the restaurant which is the only place with a thin sliver of naural light, not helped by the outsize black canopies on the terrace. The food was as reliably great as I've come to expect from Gaucho and the service was good, friendly and attentive but it's let down by the darkness of the design which makes it unnecessarily gloomy. That's irrelevant on a winter evening of course, but if you want a pleasant lunch in daylight then this may not be the ideal venue for you. Put a glass roof over the terrace and change the decor to maximise the light and it'd be a whole different ballgame.

    Atmosphere and service were amazing. Unfortunately the side dishes were disappointing, especially the mash potatoes. The steak was good but not worth the high price tag.

    Love this restaurant. The food is always excellent and the staff here remember the drinks you like, where you like to sit etc. They are fantastic with children and always have time to explain items on the menu and offer recommendations. We’ve been going for years and have had a perfect meal every single time. The prices are a little inflated to be honest but everything is cooked to perfection so it’s always a wonderful treat! They make the best negroni in town btw!!!

    back in October 2021 i had problems with my account but after 2/3 attempts, i had paid the bill. Wasn’t the best experience for me but that time I actually enjoyed the food. This time i was pulled aside by a male manager stating that due to my payment problems 1 year ago? me and my mates would have to order then pay right away? even if we didn’t like the food so due to this we took the service charge off instead of kicking up a fuss and getting kicked out on my birthday. After this our food then took 35-40minutes to come to our table and worst thing was not one of us liked the food? the chips tasted like they’d been left on the side for an hour and my friend couldn't even finish her steak because apparently it made her feel sick?. None of us finished our meals completely. I’m a supervisor at a popular cocktail nightclub bar in east central so i know the service i received today was poor. A IC1 female sat next to us who's birthday it also was received a happy birthday platter with a cake which i assume is complimentary whereas as soon as i walked in, i was told Happy Birthday but didn’t receive any complimentary happy birthday platter with cake (Me A IC3 Male). I feel as if i was racially profiled the whole time there, embarrassed and treated unfairly but you guys will probably tell me i’m crazy but thats more than fine because we’ve kept proof of absolutely everything to post just incase because that is absolutely ridiculous and don’t worry i will not be returning to that specific gauchos but something needs to be done about that and my friends and i deserve our problems from last night to be rectified

    Wonderful atmosphere and service. Was promised the get the cake with candle (birthday surprise for my husband) complementary but was charged £10. Meat was great but wasn’t a fan of the salad in the steak salad or the mash so didn’t eat these. Very expensive for what it was.

    Just visited for my partners birthday, we’ve been once before a couple of years ago and loved it. On this occasion we can both say we’ve never experienced a better service from the lovely Federico. We went with his recommendations on the steak and the wine, both were absolutely phenomenal! Atmosphere and food was 10/10 especially the birthday surprise. I’m aware there’s other Gaucho branches, but we would definitely come back to Hampstead in order to receive Federico’s attention to detail, recommendations and outstanding customer service. Thank you once again Gaucho, we’ll be back ☺️

    Not the old school Gaucho. Sadly my steak wasn’t even grilled, it was more cooked but lacked the grill lines. Over salted and lacked texture, soggy. Avoid watinf steak here. Only good thing was the service

    This was our 1st visit to this restaurant although we have visited other London branches . This is by far the best one for food quality and service. Our waiter Fredrico was very attentive and knowlagable and helped to make the evening a very enjoyable one . The food was delicious and we both enjoyed everything we ordered .

    I usually visit this restaurant on weekday evenings. Instead I tried a weekend and the service was incredibly poor. Not only that but the steak was cooked poorly and I was left feeling very disappointed. I emailed the venue twice with my feedback but never received a reply. I would recommend this restaurant on weekdays when it is not busy as when it is busy they simply can’t cope and the service and food quality goes down hill.

    Being asked how is your meal is nice, twice acceptable, but 5 times is intrusive not counting the 2 or 3 times a move was taken then realising we were deep in conversation.
