My wife and I went there twice in two weeks whilst visiting Adelaide.
Last week, we shared a starter of provoletta which is baked provolone cheese with roasted peppers and green chimi churri on toasted bread. The melted cheese was spooned onto the toast and was an excellent appetiser. I followed with a rare Adelaide Hills 500g grain fed, dry aged bone in porterhouse, This was cooked to perfection and was tender and very tasty. My wife chose CORDERO which consists of Adelaide Hills lamb loin cutlets char grilled with green chimi churri cooked medium rare. The lamb were succulent and outstanding. We had a Salad of pear, walnut, witlof, radicchio and aged grana padano which complimented the meat extremely well. We finished by sharing an affogato made up of a coffee liqueur, a scoop of coffee ice cream and a shot of espresso.
We went back the next week with a friend, and ordered the same cheese starter and also a chorizo sausage which was very spicy and tasty. Then I ordered a 500 gm T Bone steak cooked rare which was cooked just right and the meat was tender and tasty. Both my wife and friend had a plate of the lamb cutlets each and we ordered another the same salad and also ordered a serve of Char grilled mushrooms with spinach,radicchio and goats curd. Both side dishes were fresh and went well with the meat.
Once again, we shared a serve of affogato and left with very satisfied stomach!
Prices of steaks are comparable to good steak houses in Melbourne and I chase good steaks all round the world.
Gaucho's a a must if you are a steak eater and is worth paying a visit when you are next in Adelaide. The only set back is when the restaurant is full and we were lucky to get a seat in the back room the second time, the noise level can get very high which makes conversation difficult. But the food and service made it worth while.
