When you are in the mood for pizza, you probably know the ideal restaurant you should go to. What if you fancy Italian food? Exactly the same. And so on. Thus, people who live in or near Jávea know where to go to eat the best steak on the Costa Blanca: El Gaucho restaurant.
Located on the outskirts of Jávea, in a natural environment between mountains and gardens, this restaurant opened in 1974. The Belgian man who opened it for the first time already called it El Gaucho. But this business did not last long, and in the early 90s it closed. Some time later an English gentleman took the reins and reopened it with the name Las Brisas del Mar (“The Breezes of the Sea”). But El Gaucho restaurant, as we know it today, began its journey in December 2011, focusing on Argentine gastronomy and their delicious grilled steaks. In addition, this return to its origins also included the grilled cuisine, a cooking modality that was disappearing.
Today El Gaucho is the Argentine restaurant of reference in the area. Their grilled steaks are known throughout the Costa Blanca. The chef’s speciality of this place is the veal T-bone steak, a piece so juicy and tasty that when you eat it, you will be directly transported to the Argentine mountains. In addition, you can also order other meats, cold and hot starters, grilled fish or more exotic options, such as mussels in a Thai curry sauce. Their lunch and dinner menus change every week, so you can taste excellent and varied dishes! Also, every Friday a show with live music is offered to liven up the evening.

In this cosy restaurant highlights the rustic style and its extraordinary, beautiful wooden beams. In addition, their current owners had the help of Toni Mari, a local sculptor, to decorate the premises. This artist has created some unique pieces for the exteriors of El Gaucho, such as the impressive rampant horse from the entrance garden, as well as the wonderful wine cellar of the restaurant. Here you can find excellent local, national and international wines, and even the fantastic Vega Sicilia Valbuena, an exquisite option for the most refined palates.
The restaurant is situated off the main road from Denia to Jávea and has the most exquisite outdoor settings with lovely laid tables outside in the courtyard.
