We thought this was a great dining experience! I made the mistake of enjoying the beautiful salad bar too much and didn't leave much room for the fabulous meat choices delivered to our table. This is a great dining experience and we highly recommend it!

The food here is very good, obviously plentiful and the service is excellent. The salad bar is amazing but remember to save room for the roaming waiters!

We went with friends who are Argentinian. They were were very disappointed. They said everything was average. My husband did not enjoy his steak but he did enjoy his lamb. The blood sausage was so overpriced we refused to order it. I had the grouper. It was ok, but I was in a steak house so I did not expect... More

When you look online for the menu, you get to see it, but not the prices. The least expensive item was the vegetarian kebab at almost $19. Other options range from $26 to $46. I will say that the meat is very very good. Tender, cooked perfectly and the seasoning is excellent. Be prepared to spend $$$, but enjoy!

Definitely one of the nicer restaurants on Aruba, and worth the trip. Excellent food and a good wine list, with amazing sides, warm bread and toppings.

Chorizo and churrasco. Double c's because it will leave you incredibly satisfied. Best chimichuri ever, best onion sauce, and great everything. If you go on a trip and have a choice between texas de brazil and el gaucho please visit el gaucho. They are both great places but el gaucho wins best.

Wonderful restaurant with what I believe to be the best steaks ever! I thought my steak was so tender it melted in my mouth! The food was seasoned well and had so much flavor. Our server was attentive and friendly. Couldn't have asked for a better meal!

My wife and I had tenderloin steak dinners at El Gaucho and I must say, they were among the best steak dinners that we ever had. Restaurant is a little out of the way - you may need to take a cab, but it's worth it. Prices were a little higher than most of the places that we ate at... More
