We've been to Aruba multiple times and every time we go El Gaucho Steakhouse is a must. As soon as the airline tickets are bought I go online and set my reservation. Over the years the price has gone up, but $42.50 for a perfectly cooked 16 ounce filet is still a bargain. The 8 ounce filet is $28 which... More

We had a nice time here, it was a chore to get everyone there, but we hired some drivers. They sat us upstairs, using the facilities and elevator was time consuming, but it was doable. The food was very good, we brought our own wine and no problems corking it for us. The atmosphere was nice, a lot of families... More

I had the Argentine ice cream for dessert. It was very good - worth the calories. The guitarists that went from table to table accepting... More

This is one of the most authentic experiences you can have in Aruba. This restaurant, having been around for decades, know how to serve delicious grilled steaks and meats. It is not a touristy place -- it is simply a place for great food. If you need to be wined and dined, somewhere else may be best, but if you... More
