For many people, Argentinian restaurant Gaucho Manchester is the destination in the city for very good steak paired with very good wine. Housed in a converted Methodist church on Deansgate, with an open kitchen, and the original church organ still in-situ, it’s also known as one of Manchester’s best-looking spaces for dining.
On the menu you’ll find four cuts of steak, all from premium Black Angus cattle bred on the Pampas flatlands of Argentina. They also serve ‘Full Blood Wagyu’ cuts from the original Japanese Wagyu breed, when it’s available.
Choose from rump, ribeye, sirloin, and fillet, each with three choices of weight, plus four specialist spiral-cut steaks, again with different weights. There’s also a Chateaubriand and, if you really can’t decide, the Gaucho Sampler.
Steak is what Gaucho is known for but it’s worth exploring the rest of the menu too. They offer a Latin take on the bottomless brunch, plus Sunday roasts, lunchtime set menus, and set menus for groups – the private dining rooms here are as stunning as the restaurant itself.
For drinks, start with a pre-dinner cocktail such as their signature citrus negroni, before you take on the challenge of choosing from a 16-page wine list which includes the best Argentinian wines as well as bottles from around the world.
