"Gauchos" are south-American cowboys who rear cattle out in the green pastures of South America, hence the name of the restaurant. The secret of flavor at "El Gaucho" lies in the selection of beef, the cutting process, the aging of the meat in special refrigerators with controlled temperature and the unique coal grilling which enriches the meat with an extraordinary aroma. The Argentine cuisine, simple but exquisite, is treated with the outmost respect at "El Gaucho". We attempt to preserve its flavors, seasoning and combinations of side dishes in order to provide our guests with a real authentic Argentinean spot right here in Israel.
"El Gaucho" restaurant chain has been operating in Israel since 1982 and has many branches across the country. The veteran southern branch in Eilat greets its loyal clientele right at the entrance to the city (on Ha'arava road), having been located at the same spot for more than 24 years! The restaurant is designed in a typical South American rustic fashion, with whole wood and red bricks.
"El Gaucho" prides itself on having two grill men – true Gauchos with over fifteen years' worth of work experience who are in charge of grilling the meat with admirable professionalism. The Eilat branch has earned itself the reputation of an outstanding restaurant, as it has managed to stay in the ever-changing Israeli restaurant business for so many years, constantly providing its guests with high quality meat, extremely skilled professional service and a great ambience. Crucially, El Gaucho Eilat is one of the only restaurants in Israel (and in Eilat specifically) where the entire cooking process of the meat is done on a coal grill!
To accompany the familiar menu of the "El Gaucho" chain, "El Gaucho" Eilat offers unique dishes such as: Assado of milk-fed veal and luxurious Uruguay Angus entrecote, Enchilada (crusted tortilla roll with pullet, onions and mushrooms on a spicy tomato sauce). The Eilat branch is especially spacious and can cater to up to 420 guests, which makes it perfect for all your events and any occasion. Events are serviced by professionally trained waiters, dressed as Gauchos, who cater to your every need.
