We dined at El Gaucho in early January 2017. Food wise I was happy with what was served up but we had been placed on a table out of line of sight with the grill area and constantly had to ask for service either table clearing additional drinks or next course. Not what I expected from such a prestigious restaurant.

I am from Moscow, Russia. We have a great variety or steak houses, with different prices. When i read the name of the restaurant, i thought that the meat would be at least argentinian angus. It was not - just usual local beef, not prime, not even choice. I asked for medium rare - got medium, because there are no... More

Went late Saturday night before Christmas. Helpful and busy staff. Very disappointed as waiting time was longer than expected and then steaks were odd thin cuts and not brilliant. Went with high expectations that were'nt delivered given the size of the bill.

We wanted a simple meal out and chose El Gaucho where we had not been for a long time. An extensive menu and thank goodness we did not order a starter as a number of complimentary things were brought while we waited for our main course and we made the mistake of eating all of them plus bread and alioli....

Ideal for family feeds, business get togethers and friends meeting up over a good meal! Quality meat or fish cooked on a fire grill, Thai mussels to die for, great wine & 1st class service. One of the best restaurants in Javea! Love it! A fab restaurant to come back to all year round!!!!

I have been a regular visitor to El Gaucho for the past 5 years and have never had food or service that could be described as anything less than perfect. The mussel starter is heaven in a bowl and no matter which main course you go for it will be absolutely lovely. An absolute must visit restaurant. Couldn't recommend it... More

In Javea, not feeling great, getting over colds, we fancied a steak so we went to El Gaucho. What a fabulous restaurant, the welcome, the wonderful food, setting and attention to detail. It is without doubt the best restaurant we have eaten in this year... I had the melt in the mouth Sirloin Steak, husband had Lamb chops, all with... More

The restaurant is always full; at least whenever we have been in Javea. The meat is exceptionally good, cooked to your taste and you can sit next to the roaring flames as the chefs do their work for you. If that is too hot for you, there is the possibility of sitting outside under the gigantic sun shades. Outside you... More

Had an excellent meal here in September could not be faulted. Now end of November and have just tried to book a table but no response on the phone. Visited the restaurant and all closed up with no sign saying closed for a holiday so presuming it has now closed down a terrible shame.
