El Gaucho is so good, we went there twice in ten days on the island. The first night, I had the Gaucho steak which was excellent. It's really almost impossible to describe the deliciousness that is the meat there. It's just completely different than any meat you'll ever taste. The second night, I had the Argentine Mixed Grill sampler platter.... More

Always a must for my wife and I when visiting Aruba. It is conveniently located near the Radisson Aruba Resort. It is a great place for a leisurely dinner and the steaks were outstanding. The staff was very friendly and dinning a complete pleasure

I had the mixed grill and it was fantastic. Service was very good, wine selection was pretty good(for Aruba) and the music was quite enjoyable.

We always look forward to visiting El Gaucho. I love to get the Churrasco steak. . . . great flavor and HUGE. . .I cut the steak in half and make sandwiches out of the leftovers. The chicken breast is nice too. We typically go there for lunch as it is less crowded and the service is a little better.... More

We eat at El Gaucho at least once (and usually more often during our 3-4 week stays). The offerings are excellent. I always have a rib-eye; my partner has the "pincho toro", a skewer of steak, pork, sausage, onion, tomato. For each of us, our selection makes at least 3 meals: one in the restaurant and two left-over meals. The... More

This place exceeded my expectations, it was a little far from my resort (Divi all inc) but well worth the trip. Everything we ate was delicious the service was great! just be aware if you order shrimp, they still have the heads on- not a pleasant sight but delicious!

The steak was just average -overdone, not too much flavor. Nothing compared to NYC or Chicago or even CT. The Shiskabob was really good but the service was sooo extremely poor it just made for an average experience. Think its just a tourist trap - loud, crowded, and really close tables. Not a great ambiance or atmosphere.

This was a fantastic meal! The steak was excellent, cooked to perfection! Very flavorful! With three sides of your choice, there was a little leftover I enjoyed for a sandwich the next day. Great meal!! Our first server was very slow, seemed nervous, another waiter started tending to us and he was fantastic. Highly recommend, we'll be back next time!
