I had dinner at El Gaucho last week and it was great. Very high quality T-bone Steak that was cooked to perfection. Tim (the manager) and his team provided us with great service all night. We will be back, Kind Regards, Jan

Other than the beach views at some restaurants, this is the best view in Curacao. The food is also very good. The best time we have found to go is at dusk to watch the sunset over the monastery. Highly recommend if you are over in the area. It is a bit outside of Willemstad but fairly close to Santa... More

I wish we had arrived a little earlier to see the view in daylight but the lit up city view was beautiful at night. I loved the open air seating and ambiance of the place. I was a bit disappointed that it's an Argentinian steakhouse and I ordered the Argentinian steak and they were out. I was also a bit... More

We went at night so we were not able to enjoy the amazing view. Be warned about the bugs at night. They do provide big spray but that didn't help me. Service was just average. Salad bar was below average. Steaks where great. It was a pricey evening and with the salad bar and being uncomfortable with the bugs I... More

Great view, friendly and professional staff, fantastic food with salad- and soup-buffet, the best grilled meat we ever tasted and great wines.

The food was fantastic! The cuts of meat were great and it was nice to have a salad bar to enjoy prior to the meal. I must agree with the other reviewers as the service by some of the staff was not great, however the manager Martin was AMAZING and knew everything about the area to explain to us non... More

Disaster evening. First of all the service was terrible. Our waiter never came back after our question how meat would be served. Number 2 took our orders and then we had to wait more then on hour for our food. When it did arrive 3 of the 4 dishes were absolute overpriced for the small stakes But number 4 was... More

The food is excellent and you get a free salad bar with the order of a main dish. The place is tucked away on top of a hill and you might think you're going the wrong way at night but you're not. Due to the fact that it's on top a hill, it offers great views of the island from... More
