Delicious steaks and sides, friendly and swift service. Worth the ride even though little out of the way. Reasonably priced for quality. Definitely one of our favorite restaurants in Aruba. You'll want to dip everything in the little sauces they put on your table.

El Gaucho Argentine Grill When we first started coming to Aruba, two friends of ours recommended that we try, no insisted that we go to El Gaucho. We finally did visit one night on this past trip to Aruba and we were both smitten with the experience. Of course the beef is the star but the service from our host... More

It is alittle off the beaten path, but will worth it. Again every trip to Aruba is a trip to El Gauchos. We love to bring home the steak sauce.

The steak tenderloin was anything but lean. It was tough and fatty. The side dishes tasted awful. When we left we asked for someone to call a taxi for us. The lady at the front desk told us to just go outside and grab our own cab. I was shocked. Very rude!

Terrific flavor from the Rib Eye and Beef Tenderloin. I really believe the Argentinian grass fed beef superior to what we get in the USA. Nice motif in restaurant. everyone in our group completely enjoyed their meal. Would love for this restaurant to be in my hometown!!!

Enjoyed eating here on recommendation of friends back in the US. We had reservations, and still had to wait a bit. Folks in Aruba seem to eat early - about 7 all the time. The food here was good. I had a 3 meat sampler - the lamb chops were fabulous, the filet mignon was good, and the pork loin... More

Heard about this place from a family member. My wife and I were in Aruba for a week. We went, we loved, we went back again before we left. Holy cow, it was to die for! I want to go back to aruba just for a steak from El Gaucho
