Gaucho's Argentinian Restaurant on Gouger Street, near Adelaide Central Market, specialises in offering Argentinian cuisine, with steaks being the main focus of their menu. It was very popular with a crowd of a good size when we visited on a Monday.

The rib eye steak in the Ojo de Bife dish was done excellently, with juicy flesh and a good amount of charred flavour. In addition to a chargrilled wedge of lemon, the steak came with horseradish cream for a delectable hint of tanginess. Aside from the chimichurri sauce provided at each table, diners can have an accompanying sauce for an extra cost.

Their Parillada Mixta dish provides a good way to enjoy a selection of their dishes, consisting of chargrilled chicken, pork and fennel chorizo, a lamb loin cutlet, pork belly and beef pinchitos. All the meats were juicy with a delectable charred flavour. The pork and fennel chorizo also had the smoky flavour that we expected and a hint of the characteristic flavour from the fennel. Accompanying the meats was grilled witlof that still retained a bit of bite.

The freshness of the vegetables in the Ensalada de Verduras makes it a good partner with their steaks. The inclusion of cherry tomatoes imparted a hint of sweetness. The salad was dressed with a vinaigrette to give a tangy flavour that was not too intense.

The inclusion of pear in the Ensalada de Pera gave it a slightly sweet flavour compared to the Ensalada de Verduras. This was reinforced by the candied walnuts, which also provided a crunchy element to the salad. The sweetness was balanced by the radicchio leaves, which had a slight bitter taste to them.

To enjoy along with their dishes, the restaurant offers a wide range of wines along with a dessert menu for those wanting something sweet to end their meal. Booking ahead is highly advised to ensure you get a table on the day you intend to visit.
