One of the best spare ribs I ever had. The best part is that they're bottomless so you can have as much as you like. My friends have large steaks and apparently, they were very good as well.

Our meal was excellent, I had the fillet steak and my wife had the ribs. Staff were pleasant enough, although they all seemed to be rushing about most of the time. Interior could do with a re-fresh.

Didn't book in advance, but was seated within a couple of minutes. We had some bread with dips to start and then I had a steak with pepper sauce and my partner had the ribs. Both were beautifully cooked and highly recommended. The drinks were very reasonably priced, with a 500ml Heineken about 6 euros.

Found this Restaurant on TA as it was close to where we were staying. What a find. Great staff & service, lovely ambience, and great steak, which is what we were after. Prices for what you get were pretty reasonable too. My hubby loved the red wine he had with his dinner. Everyone enjoyed their food. Great night.

Food tasty and nicely presented, portions not huge (unless you opt for unlimited ribs). Good choice of malbecs. Only disappointing thing was the 10 euro cheese board. The smallest portion I have ever been served. Four tiny pieces of cheese, astonishing level of meanness.

Gauchos is a cozy spot. We went for the all you can eat spare rips and grilled chicken breasts. All good.

Neighbourhood Profile
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
