The Lost Year at Gaucho, Richmond

I've always loved Gaucho. I've been for birthdays, graduations, date nights and for brunch at the weekend! It was the first place I wanted to go to as we came out of Lockdown one last summer; so yes, needless to say I'm a big fan.

Having just moved to Southwest London, I was very eager to check out the Richmond venue - which is not only my new local branch but it also sits on the riverside. I'd actually not been to Richmond before so having spotted with current promotion on Instagram, I couldn't resist making a booking.

If you’re celebrating your 26th birthday, you and your table will enjoy twenty percent off your bill"

I got lucky with this one. I made this booking maybe six weeks ago and it just so happened to be 29° when the day finally rolled around. Ii had picked up one of my favourite dresses from home the week before and it was the perfect opportunity to wear it. I was ecstatic to get a table outside - it was the perfect evening.

The food was as good as ever, plus even more of a treat than usual as it had been a while since I'd eaten steak. 

I don't rate the starters at all but it seemed silly not to make the most of the discount so I tried to sea bass ceviche whilst David ordered the empanadas. Nice, but nothing special.

Luckily I can't say the same about the steak, that was just what I needed it to be. We shared a 400g fillet which was served sliced up on a board in the middle of the table. In the heat, I found this much less overwhelming than having a huge lump of meat placed down in front of me. 

Buttery soft and cooked just as we wanted it, I ate mine with béarnaise sauce and garlic spinach whilst trying to avoid gorging too much on the mac and cheese we'd also ordered.

Washed down with a sweet, summery blackberry and gin cocktail, I also insisted on dessert after seeing a huge slab of sticky toffee pudding arrive at the table next to us.

It was pretty dreamy too.

It was my first proper trip into Richmond and I thought it was just the most magical place.

We went for a little wander after dinner to let to food go down and make the most of the wonderful weather. Like us, there were lots of friends and couples enjoying green space and waterside paths. The river was filled with local boats and lined with lovely pubs. One particular place had dished out cushions so people were sitting against the walls and on the curbs, with a plastic pint watching the sun go down over the water. I just didn't want to leave. 

Next time I'm in the mood for steak, I know exactly where I'm going. 


  1. Gauchos' steaks are delicious. No other restaurants can beat their taste. I have also tried many of their other dishes and these are worthy enough to eat and can get assignment writing help to manage their work. I have arranged my last birthday party there and everyone enjoyed that place.

  2. I am very sure that Valeria Walsh is the experienced wedding planner. It is a very hard job and visit essay expert us on site for it is very hard to invent the unique and different idea for the wedding day. It is also different to select the wedding dress. But Valerie knows all the things very well.

  3. The story of “full moon ménage” is wonderful and viist on site the writer of this book tries to generate the common suspense of the people. In the middle of this book, the story becomes enter into the extreme level. I suggest to the people to read this book.

  4. Students are the important part of our society and are involved in the progress of the country. The purpose of social media is to convey the healthy message and give awareness to the people. It is very bad for the students who participate in the prohibited activity. It is responsible for the parents and teacher to give a lesson on this vital issue.
