Argentine on Parc?

porker Jul 21, 2008 11:08 AM

The wife and I made it to the Tam Tam yesterday. Nice crowd. We were pleasantly surprised to discover mock battles held a bit further back on the mountain - styro swords, duct-tape shields, rubber pointed lances, and knight costumes. Kinda weird...
Anyways, driving north on Parc, I noticed a place called (I think) Casa Gaucho, Argentine Grill. It was on the west side, north of Milos.
Has anyone tried this place?
Thoughts?

    I went a few weeks ago and was disappointed. Service was lacklustre (we waited several minutes before being greeted/getting menus in an empty restaurant), food was mediocre seeing as the meat was all over-cooked and therefore chewy. I won't be going back.

      Overcooked is the way the Argentines eat their meat, so you got the authentic experience.

      I think it is now called Grillades Gaucho. A friend went recekntly and said the steak was excellent. I wonder if others have tried it since your initial enquiry in 2008.

        a friend of mine also had a good experience a few years ago but it is perpetually dead inside even on friday and saturday nights...it's one of those mystery businesses on that block.

        there are some reviews on urban spoon though http://www.urbanspoon.com/r/67/1596907/restaurant/Outremont/Grillades-Gaucho-Grill-Montreal

        i also found pictures of the food

          Funny how this pops up 4 years 21 days after the fact.
          Weirder still, we checked out Atelier d'Argentine last night. Didn't eat there - ended up at Bremmer - but I have a hankering for Argentine grill...
