I've been there while working a few days in Madrid. I've been literally amazed by the fantastic energy of the people working in the kitchen. Just looking at the way the meat is prepared is a must. This is not only a show for the eyes but the food is excellent, served in friendly manner. This is not sophisticated of... More

We wanted to go to Vila Brasil but felt it was too far out so we chose El Gaucho somewhat reluctantly. We were in for a surprise as it was a great night. It´s easy to feel you have come to the wrong place from the outside and the bar area but the restaurant at the back is a class... More

Accidentally came across this restaurant while wandering around Gran Via area. It's was a wonderful meal I had for €10. You had to eat at the front on the bar, but what super value. You have a bread with a beautiful sauce/dressing, then a chorizo sausage as starter, a 125grm (roughly) steak with fries and then an ice cream (I... More

Based on the reviews here in TripAdvisor I chose El Gaucho for my first dinner in Madrid and once again our fellow travelers reviews were proven absolutely spot on. We ordered the Argentinean mix for 2, baked potatoes, grilled peppers and a Mediterranean salad. All were excellent ! The service was very discreet and attentive and the quality and quantity...

Husband and I were walking around looking for a place to eat. We looked at the menu on the outside of the restaurant and I saw the TripAdvisor logo. I said let's go in. What a place. First they gave us a glass of champagne, cheese, and crackers, (at the beginning and at the end of the meal lemon sorbet,... More

We had a very fine evening dining here. I ordered the steak and my companion the fish with a very nice salad to share. Complimentary spiced pumpkin soup is provided along with crisp bread and soft cheese before your steak arrives. The steak was fabulous although a slight confusion with the potatoes which were listed as roast but a baked... More

Nice welcome. Chanced upon El Gaucho, while strolling around the Puerta de Sol area. Was wowed by the spot-on service, and especially the extra nice touches of complimentary champagne, sorbet, and a great little jug of Bailey's to top off dessert and cafe con leche. Pasta entrees also very good. Did not realize the good folks who run it were... More

Ribeye was great. This was the main point of going there... Jacket potato and mixed salad - ok. Pre and list meal treats were all very good, so was the house Rioja and coffee. Not cheap, but this I knew.

Staying in Centro

Neighbourhood Profile
Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street performers, colorful lights, window shopping, restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a collection of plazas interconnected by a network of side streets. Some of these side streets are wide pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.
