My wife and I went to Aruba for the 2nd year in a row during the last week of August. Even though that time of year is considered low season, I still made a reservation 2 weeks in advance from Gostoso's website. That's how much we enjoyed our meal last year.

We found this place from trip advisors rankings and were impressed by all facets - quaint since it is off the beaten path, good food but not too fancy, and priced right as we got out of there with wine and tip for under 125 usd.

Gostoso Restaurant is a very good restaurant. Excellent food, fine ambiance, good service. Once you have tried Gostoso you will want to return to try the different food on the menu. Jose the owner takes care of you and is very helpful in making your stay an unforgettable experience.

Saw this as the #1 rated restaurant in the area so we checked it out...it was amazing! The service was top notch, the food was delicious and the ambiance was really great too. We each had one of the specials - the beef medallions and the seafood medley with grouper. Both were extremely good and fairly priced - each around... More

The white sangria is the best I've had and served with a spoon to eat all the fruit. My entree of curry chicken stew was very nice. My husband... More
