We ate there for our Anniversary dinner. We were seated immediately upon our arrival. Everyone that came to our table was very accommodating, efficient and friendly. I can honestly say it was an awesome dinner.

We last visited El Gaucho on our honeymoon 14 years ago so we figured it was time to make another visit. We arrived early for our reservation so we chose to sit at the bar and enjoy a cocktail. If you like moscato, order it here. Once we sat down, we were welcomed like no time had passed at all.... More

My husband and I were very excited for our dinner at El Gaucho and have yet to have a bad meal in Aruba until this experience. We had an 8:30 reservation which was made by our hotel (Ritz Carlton) and we arrived fifteen minutes early and were seated only five minutes later. We were greeted by our server who was... More

Very smooth. Then we both had the Gaucho steak, cooked to perfection. We have never had a bad meal here... ever! The birthday boy ordered Argentine... More

Bring your appetite and your wallet. Don't come here if you are looking for the value menu. I think I grill a spectacular steak, but their ribeye and filet were untouchable!! Expect $50 per person before drinks, and expect to love every bite.

I had the veal steak and the iceberg wedge and was delicious. Sangria and great service to cap the night. Just awesome, worth the price.

We never miss a chance to eat at El Gaucho, the food is delicious and the portions generous. You have to know where your going to find it and will need a taxi if you do not have a car. The entertainment is the highlight to sign a chorus of Sweet Caroline for our Boston Red Sox fans.

My wife and I had a late lunch here at this restaurant about 3 days ago while here in port while on an 11-day Panama cruise with Princess Cruises. We had eaten here before a number of years ago while on a similar cruise. I will say this-and my wife absolutely agrees-that both times the food was just EXCELLENT, and... More

One of the best steaks Ive had anywhere. I had the T-Bone this time around and loved it. Service was friendly and attentive. The Flan for desert hit the spot.
