Group of 4. We shared pretty much everything. A lot of meat and it was all delicious. The sides were very good. Garlic bread is also served with 3 different sauces that are wonderful. Service was good. Only reason I knock off one star is because the table of ten had about 4 kids running around kicking and throwing a... More

The first question we asked the locals was where the best steak in all of Aruba was. Our cab drivers, captains, drink servers, and cleaning ladies unanimously agreed that El Gaucho was the place to go. We made a dinner reservation on the final night of our stay for 8PM for two, and had one of the most delectable meals... More

If you are a steak lover, this is a good place to go! Our wait or, Olsin was funny, polite, and most importantly super attentive to us! We ordered sweetbread for appetizer(Yum!) and had 16 oz. Rib Eye Steak for dinner. Steak was cooked to perfection(it was truly medium, pink in the middle, not bloody and so juicy) and our... More

My family dies for El Gaucho's steaks and chimichurri sauce. We're regular visitors to Aruba and always make sure to have a special steak dinner at El Gaucho during our trip. The most recent time I got the beef short ribs, was absolutely fantastic. Always seem to leave stuffed but with leftover steak... They finally started selling the chimichurri sauce... More

Absolutely amazing!!! The Ribeye was fantastic and the red onions and chimichurri (sorry sp) made it one of the best steaks I have ever had. Our waiter Oslin made it even a better experience! We will definitely be coming back and maybe even on this trip.
