Gaucho Piccadilly Restaurant Review: The expansion of the Gaucho chain has been rapid and successful, but this Gaucho, the flagship, ups the ante. For a start it occupies four floors with a ground floor wine bar and specialist wine shop, and three floors of restaurants. If you haven't been to a Gaucho before, then the cow skin wallpaper and pouffes come as a surprise, but after that most people enter into the Argentinean spirit. The steaks are really topnotch, guaranteed to satisfy the fussiest beef eater. Other tastes are catered to with veal sweetbreads, lobster and seafood platters, pastas and salads. The wine list is first-rate; desserts range from cheesecakes to Argentinean pancakes and whipped ice cream with whisky. You wonder if a menu that covers so much can keep up the quality. But don't worry; this is a class chain of restaurants.
