Located in the heart of the city centre, Gaucho brings a touch of cultural significance to one of Cardiff’s most vibrant areas.

Drawing inspiration from Cardiff’s storied past and Argentina’s breath-taking landscapes, the restaurant is an ode to the intertwined trade histories of both regions. The interplay of black steel and copper elements echoes the shades of coal and the opulence of the Argentinian plains, adding a touch of dark glamour to your dining experience.

Step into our elegant and inviting space, meticulously designed to cater to any occasion.

The ground floor of our restaurant boasts an ambience that beautifully combines industrial design elements and cultural artistry, making it the ideal setting for relaxed working lunches, afternoon drinks, and evening dining experiences.

As you enter, our glamorous cocktail bar takes centre stage, inviting you to unwind and savour handcrafted cocktails, perfect for pre-dinner drinks or a romantic date night.

Both intimate soirées and grand celebrations find their place on our top floor. Two beautiful private dining rooms offer versatility and charm for more intimate occasions, while the spacious dining area accommodates gatherings of all sizes, with the option to exclusively hire the whole top floor.

Our food and drinks offering is equally impressive, featuring lunch and dinner options showcasing a signature range of sustainable steaks and flavourful Argentine dishes, as well as a wide selection of cocktails and fine wines.

For those seeking a more exclusive dining experience, the restaurant will also feature a Beef Bar showcasing an exceptional beef tasting menu that treats guests to a true taste of South America. Guided by a chef, the Beef Bar is the place to enjoy a truly interactive dining experience.
