The food was good but I don't think that we had the greatest food. We were in search of delicious local food and we found better elsewhere. The service was very good. Go early!

Chicken Gasparito, the super secret recipe that keeps me wanting to go back to Gasparito's Restaurant when in Aruba. Delicious entree, friendly owner who greets you at the door and serves you while his son is the chef extraordinaire. We took our friends there and they loved it.

We loved Gasparito--a bit hard to find, especially at night, but not uncommon for Aruba. The food was worth the trip! The owner was our waiter and his son cooks all the food--we had the homemade ravioli (chef recommended), my fiance had goat (he LOVED it!), and I had the mahi mahi (fresh catch). Everything was great--the service, the atmosphere,... More

Every time we come to Aruba we can't leave with out going to Gasparito's at least once. The keshi yena and Gasparito's chicken are must try dishes. If you can get one of the combo meals that features a few dishes that is even better. The owners are lovely people and keep us wanting more!

My friend and I enjoyed an excellent dinner at Gasparito on Saturday, July 19, 2014. The restaurant is also set up as an art gallery and is located in a neighborhood not far from the high rise hotels. I actually felt like I was dining in someone's home. The owner, Dan Barros serves as host and server and his son... More

What a find! Sadly due to being off the main highway near Noord this is true Aruban eating. The owner is the perfect hoste with his son doing the cooking. Great local dishes.Sadly when we went we ate outide and we were the only people eating outside so it lacked atmosphere, but the food made up for it. After our... More

We booked at Gasparito as it's part of the AGA's Dine Around scheme, as we wanted to try some of the local cuisine. Gasparito is a family run restaurant, with the owner waiting on the customers and his son cooking. The restaurant only takes a small number of reservations per evening in the low season (15 covers when we visited).... More

We enjoyed our meal here but it wasn't as good as I remember from the past. The owner is fun and joked with us but he is semi retired and his son is the chef. I think overall everything has slipped here recently.

Our family was treated to a wonderful experience due to both the food, including authentic Aruban cuisine, and the charms of the owner, Raimundo, who served and entertained us with some riddles.

We made an 8 pm reservation at this family-owned restaurant located just off L.G. Smith Boulevard on Gasparito Road. We showed up 5 minutes late and were given a very disapproving look by the host, who, it turned out, was the father of the chef. "I almost forgot you were coming," he said. We were escorted into the enclosed courtyard... More
