Perfectly cooked steak

This restaurant is an awesome Argentinian steakhouse. My husband and I went to the newest location closet to Piscadera. We were told it was their newest location on the island. The steaks we had ordered were both cooked perfectly to what we had ordered (medium rare for 1 & rare for the 2nd). The... read more

Very expensive and poor food quality. No great specials. However the ambiance looks great. Poor service. Please get your act together.

We visited El Gaucho in Aruba several years ago and definitely wanted to try it again in Curacao. They recently opened up a restaurant less than 5 minutes away from the Marriott. It is on top of a hill so you have a beautiful view while eating your dinner. We loved it - reserved a table right by the balcony.... More

We had dinner at the location of Piscadera. Reservations were for 6:30PM.After ordering, which went smoothly, we had to wait for one hour before the first appetiser arrived. After that the main courses arrived. None of the meals was exceptional and the Picanha(one of their specialities) was terrible. Ordered medium, but is was very rare. Further the meat was full...

The steak here was cooked to perfection and much larger portions than other restaurants serve on the island. One of our diners was certain their hangar steak was as good as any filet they've had. The wine list is excellent. The staff really knows the history behind each wine offered and was excited to offer tastings and options at all... More

El Gaucho in caracau, willemstad( new) was very disapointing. The Marriott crew told us it had very good food so we went right accross the street almost on a Monday night.  It started with a mysterious outside man dressed in black and sitting on a pick up truck. Figured he was overlooking parking lot.  He just pointed at a parking... More

We all had steak, tenderloin with shrimp and skirt steak. Both were delicious and the skirt steak was well marinated and the best we have ever had. The surroundings were comfortable, plenty of room between tables and the breeze was refreshing. Service was excellent and we were offered a ride back to the Marriott. All in all a perfect evening.

Like in Aruba, El Gaucho is the best meat you can find. If you want meat go there. No doubts. We order picanha with potatoes and it was marvelous
