El Gaucho, is a typical Argentine Steakhouse, famous for serving succulent Steaks grilled the Argentinian way. The decor, ambiance and music is rustic and Argentinian in every way. Leather art on the walls, wooden pillars and barrels,cow hide decor and more. The Restaurant is divided in 7 dinning rooms, each decorated to honor a region of Argentina:Mendoza the wine region, the famous Caminito Way, the Pampas fields.The menu is extensive with many choices of beef, poultry and seafood. The sides are included in the price and so are the fresh garlic bread and the 3 home made sauces to acompany your dinner.With over 38 years, serving the best and the biggest steaks, El Gaucho is the oldest established Restaurant on the Island.

Best Steakhouse in Aruba

This was my second visit to El Gaucho, and it never disappoints. I don't think you can get better steak anywhere else on the island. An excellent meal, comprable to a Ruth Chris. Besides the excellent food, you are serenaded as you eat. If you love steak, you must go to El Gaucho!

Awesome dining at El Gaucho! My husband and me dined here to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. The Argentinian steaks were flavorful, very tender and grilled to the correct temperature. Sides were also prepared well with lots of flavor. We are originally from New Orleans but live in Beaumont and Austin so great food is important to us. The price... More

No regrets! Made reservation and everything was perfect! It reminded me of my favorite steak in our hometown, NOLA. I had the skirt steak and we also ordered the ribeye! It came with 3 sides. Steak was cooked perfectly! Made my experience in Aruba even better!

We went here for my birthday dinner. The steaks and service were great! The prices are a little higher than other restaurants we ate at but it was definitely worth it. Three of the four steaks were cooked perfect with the fourth being slightly undercooked but not enough to be sent back. Everyone had leftovers that made for good sandwiches... More
