My second visit to this amazing Argentine steakhouse... the food, wine and service cannot be beat. Make it a point to visit this restaurant on every visit to Aruba!

We'd heard raves about El Gaucho, but were underwhelmed. It's a bit crowded and noisy, and while the portions are big, the steak is not as good as a Mortons or Ruth Chris.

When you go to Aruba, everyone will tell you that El Gaucho is a must go to for dinner. The locals go there, the tourists in the know go there. Take a cab or if you rent a car don't be afraid the directions are fairly simple. There were two couples in our party. One couple split the wedge salad... More

We love El Gauchos!! The steaks were so good and each one comes with three sides. The corn on the Cobb was delicious! Make sure to call for Reservation!

The steaks were large and the service was great. Our server was Jinero. You also get to choose three sides. Rosa also came by to check in on us.

Service is exceptional and the food is delicious. Portions are HUGE. I had 8oz tenderloin which was melt in your mouth tender. Sides are included. I enjoyed garlic broccoli, homestyle potatoes & fried plantain. Whatever you do, save room for dessert. The flanis out of this world. The fried cheesecake is also delicious. 5 min taxi from high rise area.... More

We went to the El Gaucho for a meal and it is the best restaurant that we have ever experienced. When in Aruba it is a must to visit this place if you like amazing steaks and exceptional service. My wife is vegetarian and they accommodated her requests without a problem. Our waiters were very accommodating and nothing was too... More

Argentina raised beef, fresh seafood cooked to perfection. When in Aruba, we always go there at least one night, be sure to call well ahead to get your reservations.

This is a very large restaurant but you can't tell because they have many individual dining rooms. We were so happy to be seated in a "couples" only area where they had booths for 2 on each side. The service was friendly. The Argentinian steaks were tasty and different. My garlic shrimp was to die for! The only kicker was... More

Something about the grass-fed Argentine beef that just really stands out! The steaks are perhaps some of the best in the world. You MUST try this place while in Aruba if you're a steak lover. It will be the benchmark of steak from then on.
