About

COWCHA is an independently family owned sophisticated Argentinian restaurant focusing on the finest steaks and gourmet burgers made with beef from grass fed cows reared by handpicked farmers across Argentina. Our Black Angus Argentinian beef is `wet aged` for over 32 days a process that brings out the subtle flavour of the meat, without losing any of its juiciness and cooked to perfection in our natural charcoal oven. Locally produced beef, sustainable fish, lamb, poultry and pork are also served and are stunning as are the divinely tempting homemade desserts. Ingredients are fresh, whenever possible organic ambiance sophisticated, cocktails elegant and wines carefully chosen featuring the very best varietals from across the world.
Our menus have been lovingly created by our talented Head Chef with over 20 years’ experience and together with the General Manager will oversee the service to ensure a truly unforgettable dining experience.

Cowcha is kaput! No longer operational. Booking was futile and ought not to have been possible.

Turned up having had booking confirmed but the restaurant has closed down. What a nonsense to be accepting bookings.

I actually can’t start to explain my disappointment. We booked this restaurant with open table for Father’s Day and my booking was confirmed. We got to the restaurant at the correct time only to find it was closed!!! With no call or notification of this before hand! Absolutely disgusted.... not sure who to blame? Open table or the restaurant itself?

The restaurant is closed. Open table should not be accepting reservations

The restaurant closed a week earlier - so one might have thought that Opentable were aware of this rather than accepting the booking and acknowledging it.

We had a very pleasant evening. However, the pre drinks were vastly overpriced and the T bone steak wasn't available. My husband was very disappointed with his steak and didn't feel too well afterwards! This is an upmarket restaurant and I hope that it does well. Very friendly staff.

Had a fantastic meal and lovely wine, music played slightly to loudly for my own liking but overall well worth the journey to Woking. We usually head to a miller and carter which having experienced both I think cowcha just ahead with food and menu and definitely the clientele better at cowcha- no tracksuit bottoms on display here!!

Nice restaurant and food ok, didn't get told burgers did not come with fries and that you had to pay extra. Not very friendly staff though only thing that let it down.

Our experience was first class. Surprised at cost of top quality steaks. Service was brilliant and the wine list was good. Especially recommend the Fillet steaks. Ours came as ordered and melted in mouth. The dessert menu, while not extensive, served a mixture of items. Recommend the triple chocolate mousse. We will have no hesitation in coming back and recommending to friends.

Great food, but a large table of guests made the room very noisy and detracted from the ambience and initially led to slow service. Very little soft furnishing to dampen sound. Steaks to die for though and very nicely presented. Had to wait a bit to pay our bill. Next time we will sit in smaller area toone end which is quieter. Worth a visit.

Anniversary dinner. Just one unfortunate incident when a gentleman came in and was ask to leave I think the management did not approve or maybe they had problems in past. There were no apologies or explanation from the lady who asked the man to leave. We felt it could have been dealt with in a more pleasant manner

Silk steak !! We had a table of 5 ladies on our monthly catch up and every steak was perfection. Melt in your mouth! The food was absolutely delicious, as was the wine. Staff are very friendly and accommodating. Will 100% be returning! My new fav steak house! Plus the cosmopolitans were yum!!! Thank you!

This was our first visit to Cowcha, and we wish we’d gone years ago.

From the moment we arrived the service was friendly and helpful without being intrusive.

The cocktails and food were faultless, and the steak probably the best we’ve had in the UK. The Chocolate Fondant was also to die for!

All in all we would happily recommend Cowcha to all our friends and can’t wait to visit again when we’re next in Woking.

I booked this 'blind' as a place to meet and eat with friends - and what a find! I have already recommended it to a few friends as the food and service was excellent - and reasonably priced.

My chicken dish was awful! It was in burnt bread crumbs and the overpowered by cheese in the middle. It didnt gel together like a typical dish would usual - it actually made me feel a bit sick. Staff saw I hadn’t really touched the food but didnt ask how my meal was when they collected the dishes -number 1 rule when taking dishes away - ask how the meal was!!!!

Had been several times before and the steaks were always perfect. This time hubby had the fillet steak which he said was tough. The weekend previously I had eaten the rib eye which was also not as good as before.
We used to have the early evening offer but often with starters, pudding and extra wine. Alway have a mojito which has now gone up by £1 a glass!
Felt this time was not such good value so we may wait some time before a repeat visit!

I highlight recommend Cowcha, it is without a doubt one of our favourite restaurants and certainly our favourite in Woking. The ambiance is lovely and the service is always really friendly and professional. The food has been consistently wonderful on every visit. We always order steak and it has been cooked to perfection and is always very tasty. The cocktails are also very good.

It took an hour for our main 30 mins for our pudding and the watris service was shocking

In used glass left at the end of the table, told she having a bad day and no check for food or drink and very very slow

Excellent food, we had filet steak, ribeye steak and burger for a mother’s day lunch. Service was very slow which appeared to be lack of staff because we were in a corner area with 4/5 tables and this was rarely visited by the serving staff.
This should not put you off going to Cowcha. The food was very good value for the quality of meat and the cooking.

Amazing steak, cooked to perfection. Served with side salad which was (disappointingly) only a few leaves. Had garlic mushrooms and paprika chips as side which were very good.
Service was prompt and friendly.
Mid-range prices - definitely a treat for date night.

Will certainly be returning.

We went for my daughters 9th birthday who loves steak. Great value early menu deal. Steak cooked exactly how we ordered. I am gluten free and they did me some gluten free chips especially for me. Staff were very friendly and efficient. Great evening
