A local friend recommended this place. Steaks were perfectly cooked. Traditional taste. Fair prices for quality and portion size. Good service, nice staff and fast...went on a Friday and was packed but were served fairly quick. Had rib eye, flank steak and Guava cheesecake. All was very good. 👍🏻

Had dinner on a Saturday night, 7pm no reservation needed. Was seated immediately and ordered calamari appetizer, which was below average (no taste/seasoning). Very nice table side steak selection and 2 of 3 people ordered the 12 oz. filets medium rare, one person ordered tri tip (cooked perfectly), with baked potatoes. Both filets arrived seared on outside but raw and... More

We really enjoyed our visit and returned for a second visit at the end of our trip. On both occasions the steaks were tender, cooked as we had asked and very tasty. Special mention should go to the warm bread loaves brought to the table which were delicious. A great place and well recommended.

Food was not the best and really over priced. All meat was imported from US ( in Argentinian restaurant ) Staff was not friendly and they wanted from me a tip what was a bit too much. I feel disappointed.

We were a group of 4, great steaks for all of us and cooked perfectly. We started with the blood sausage, pork sausage and sweet breads- very tasty and well prepared. Our group had the skirt steak/entraña, rib eye and filet mignon. Fantastic! This is a no frills restaurant but the flavour and service make up for it. No room... More

Had a wonderful and delicious dinner at Gauchos. I ordered the ribeye and absolutely could not finish it. Fantastic. I will definitely eat here again on my next visit to Panama City.
