There isn’t a thing that Gaucho don’t know about steak. They pretty much wrote the book on it and their range of speciality cuts twinned with stunning sauces makes it king of the hill when it comes to chowing down in Leeds. But they’re far from a one-trick pony – step down into the luxury surroundings of their suave subterranean restaurant and you can feast on scallops, shrimp ceviche, outstanding cocktails and the wine list of dreams.

If you’re our lucky winner, you’ll get £300 to spend at Gaucho Leeds. That’s enough to put their a la carte menu to the test, or perhaps you’d prefer their stellar Sunday roast with a bottle of something memorable? However you want to do it, you’re in for a treat. Set the tone with an aperitivo – perhaps a Citrus Negroni, Rum Honey or Lychee Blush. You’ll also want some time to work your way through the wine list, a 20-page tome that’s particularly strong on Argentine grapes such as Malbec – the perfect pairing for steak.

Speaking of which, why not kick things off with steak tartare? The Gaucho version is elevated above the norm with palm heart emulsion and a slow-cooked duck egg. Among the starter standouts, seared scallops are paired with a punchy nduja butter and lemon crumb, while the Big Sausage Platter is a carnivore’s dream. When it comes to mains, it’s not simply steak – there’s pasta, chicken breast and veggie options too. The burger is as brilliantly juicy and flavour-packed as you’d expect.

The steaks at Gaucho aren’t just succulent – they’re sustainable too. Choose your ancho (ribeye), lomo (fillet) and more by weight and rest assured that they’re 100% carbon neutral. There’s real joy to be found in the speciality cuts, such as the spiral-cut tira de ancho, which is grilled with chimichurri for maximum impact. Want to go big? You can share a chateaubriand with your lucky guest or go for the Gaucho Sampler – over a kilo of mixed and oh-so marvellous meats. Heck, we haven’t even got to the sauces and sides yet!

If you’ve miraculously left room for dessert, more treats await. There’s a salted dulce de leche cheesecake with toasted marshmallow that should satisfy any sweet tooth, while a light and bright citrus flan is sprinkled with peanut snow. Not quite enough room but still got budget to burn? The Butterscotch Bonbon is one of a trio of dessert cocktails that act as the perfect end to any meal. The best thing about winning this competition? You can have all of that without a bill at the end!
