Gaucho further strengthens its position with 20th site in Cardiff
Gaucho, the modern Argentinean steakhouse group, led by Martin Williams, continues its nationwide expansion with the opening of its 20th site and first in Wales. Trading at Gaucho Cardiff has exceeded expectations with the restaurant hitting sitting six figure sales in its first week of trading.
The restaurant launched last week with a star-studded party attended by the likes of Welsh Football Captain Aaron Ramsey and his wife, Colleen Rowland, Rugby icon Lawrence Dallaglio and DJ Becky Tong.
Located on Bridge Street in the heart of Cardiff’s historic centre, the 8,500sq ft site sits across two storeys and accommodates 220 covers with two private dining rooms and a central cocktail bar. The restaurant will be the first in the city to serve carbon-neutral beef and, as with all Gaucho restaurants, operates a zero food to landfill policy, running on 100% renewable energy.
The menus, from Executive Chef Mike Reid, feature contemporary Latin American dishes such as shrimp ceviche with picante rojo; empanadas and a marinated pork matambre with Malbec jam.
Martin Williams, CEO of Gaucho says: “I am delighted with the performance of the entire group, particularly our new openings this year. We have enjoyed fantastic post-pandemic trading across the estate and there is clearly an appetite across the country for our signature offering of impeccably sourced sustainable steaks, modern Argentinean food and cocktails.”
Cardiff is the fourth Gaucho to launch this year, following openings in Liverpool, Newcastle and London’s Covent Garden. The brand continues with its ambitious growth strategy with a strong pipeline in place and additional Gaucho openings planned for 2024.
