We visited the El Gaucho in Graz a couple weeks back and it was splendid as usual. Eventhough we were quite a big Group the Food came out all at the same time and the waitress was just as friendly as always. I recommend this Restaurant for everyone who enjoys a nice ambiance with one of the best Steaks in... More

If you are meat love and are looking for excellently grilled steaks, El Gaucho is a must in Graz. Don't forget to book your table in advance, it's always full. Great quality beef, perfect attentive service.

We enjoyed a lovely dinner in the Graz city center. Both being meat-lovers this seemed to be an obvious choice for us. We were greeted with a basket of bread and local goods from the kitchen, the butter and salami were a bit bland, but the rest was very good. We started with bbq grilled duck cream soup and scallops... More

A table was booked for us by work colleagues, albeit in the bar/smoking area. Yes they can still smoke inside in Austria, dedicated smoking and non smoking areas though! Very busy on arrival at 1930 and we were greeted and assisted very warmly by Alex. With excellent English he explained the menu and took our drinks order. Another waiter presented... More

It is not difficult to decipher THE hot spot in town. This is amazing beef heaven. Choose between sirloin, ribeye and/or tenderloin, choose your weight in grams and then add any myriad of wicked accompaniments! The vibe and crowd are most beautiful. Et voilà! There is also a seafood lovers' twin across the street. Danke...

Booked a table 2 weeks in advance given the high ratings at this restaurant to have a romantic dinner with my wife on a Friday night while in Graz. Seeing that they specialize on meat & steaks I was looking forward to a pretty goad steak. While the table service was very good, I was rather disappointed with the main... More

I chose the dry aged porterhouse. This was a €90 steak ok. It was too tough and overlooked. Sides and service were good. We'll choose somewhere else when in town again.

Went to Graz, last minute for work. Was surprised to find a highly rated steak restaurant available. Went with a colleague without a reservation and was able to get a table. The service was quite good and very friendly. Good mix of German and English, so quite easy to interact with restaurant staff. The pumpkin soup was a great way... More
