we liked this better than Old Cunucu House Restaurant for Aruban food. Charged me for a bottle of wine, instead of the glass I had!! Watch your bills...we had a phantom charge elsewhere that day, elsewhere, for lunch!!

Gasparito was definitely the best meal we had in Aruba. The restaurant is small and not very busy as it's away from the tourist area, but you should definitely go if you want to eat authentic Aruban dishes and meet the friendly owner, who is happy to talk with you and make you feel welcome as if you're eating in...

We selected Gasparito for our evening meal based on a recommendation from hotel staff at Bucuti & Tara. We asked for a local restaurant that offered classic Aruban flavors and dishes, and that is exactly what we received. Do not let the local setting fool you, the service and meal was very enjoyable. The restaurant is run by father and... More

We had a wonderful meal at Gasparito. It is a small and very welcoming restaurant that specializes in authentic Aruban dishes. The catch of the day was mahi mahi. It was prepared with delicious sauces and topped with succulent shrimp. The shrimp thermidor was also prepared just right. The ravioli appetizer and the banana sundae were also highlights of the...

Don't miss out on this experience. We enjoyed gourmet authentic Aruban cuisine. This restaurant goes for quality and experience, not volume. The seafood, pork, bread, dessert, and wine were all pefection. The flavor was incredible. We would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Aruba!

Try the "ravioli" as a starter: delicious! The Aruban combo is then a summary of the best Aruban cuisine you can get. The online reservation service works very well and the owner on site is ironic and professional.

Awesome food. Good flavor not spicy, not too much curry. Family owned and run, staff takes great pride in their business. Everything here was awesome. Gotta try it.

We ordered Aruban cuisine samplers, they were all amazing, with everything cooked and served perfectly . We already made reservations to return tomorrow night! Service was also perfect, and the art was beautiful!

Food was fine although broccoli was burnt and presentation average at best. If your ice cram is melted you should not serve it to customers! Suspect good reviews are from people staying in the high rise area who are delighted to get out of the crowd. Definitely overrated particularly when you consider the cab fee to get there and back

I made my yearly trip to Gasparito last night with my family to get an authentic Aruban dinner. I typically would get the Aruban Special (which includes Keshi Yena chicken) but I decided to change it up this year. I ordered the Keshi Yena Seafood Combo and it was to die for. If you're a seafood lover, this is the... More
