My wife and I have been intermittent patrons of El Gaucho for many years and have rarely been well-pleased. For many years it was the only option for a kosher meat meal in a real restaurant in Haifa. It is usually noisy, the food is acceptable if not memorable, the staff usually friendly if sometimes a bit harried

As steak house is not comparable to the steak you can have in us or germany but at the end israel is not famous for cow so not to expect a great steak but for sure a good one

There aren't many kosher spots in Haifa. El Gaucho is a steak place and it was soooo good. The steaks were more than fine, but the side dishes, appetizers and service were terrific.

Our entrees were excellent and prepared medium rare as requested. I had the entrecôte k-bobs which were very flavorful. The portion was extremely generous. My husband had the fillet and it was very tender. Chorizo appetizer was disappointing- dry and bland. Atmosphere is relaxed. Wine selections are varied and ample. We will be back and would recommend without hesitation.

I am giving four stars for one reason only, when we went, we went for an early lunch and we were the only patrons so the service were excellent, but I cannot say how the service is when the restaurant is full! We got the business lunch, we got the filet and the entrecote as main coarse. For the sides... More

This restaurant offers very good food (and incredible deserts) with a nice view of the seaport. The service was good through the main course, but then they seemed to have forgotten about us (so we had to keep vying for their attention). Definitely not the cheapest place in Haifa but you get what you pay for. I highly recommend the... More

This fine restaurant overlooking Haifa had great service and wonderful sirloin steaks with a wide selection of side dishes. The Mediterranean salad was delicious as were the fresh green beans. The steak was well prepared and tasty and very friendly waiter.

I have been bringing tourists to El Gaucho for close to 20 years. The food is still great! The same chef has been there for 24 years . He really knows how to cook great steaks-Argentinan style. If you are in Haifa or nearby..I highly recommend El Gaucho
