The restaurant is in St Andrew Square and offers business lunches, intimate evening dining, private dining and special events.

There will be a selection of more than 200 exclusive Argentinian wines alongside a wide range of spirits and cocktails.
Robertson, said: “I’m enjoying the opportunity to create exclusive dishes for our new Edinburgh restaurant that celebrate and fuse the provenance of Argentinian beef with Scotland’s enviable natural larder.
“Scots know good beef so I’m looking forward to bringing Gaucho’s world-famous menu to Edinburgh.”
