My husband and I have eaten here many times and the food is always consistently good, service is friendly and view is romantic. But this review is about the new manager. He serviced our table and was very friendly and personable, we enjoyed speaking & joking with him. After the meal, we had just missed the shuttle to bring us... More

Delicious meat, however overpriced. Count on 35 dollars and up for your piece of meat. Plus: very nice view and security on the parking lot (required as the restaurant is in a remote low lit area). The beautifully constructed restaurant is outdoors only, so watch the weather. My advice: go there to get to know this place but do not... More

As El Gaucho is one of the more expensive restaurants on Curacao, we went here during restaurant week. Portion size was good, and the steak was delicious. Also the coffees very generous. However, during our stay the place had lots of ants, mosquitoes. little flies and the likes. This is probably worsened by the bushes just outside of the restaurant.... More

We, two couples from Germany, recently had dinner at "El Gaucho" to enjoy some steaks. The service was unfortunately not very friendly. Also, it took very long to ask about our wishes and bring the drinks. Since we had only met very friendly people and extremly attentive restaurant staff at Curacao before, the evening started somewhat disappointing. The salad buffet... More

My husband and I dined at El Gaucho Steakhouse in Curacao. The view and the service were extremely good. However, the salad bar selection was very meager and the selection of steaks was very limited. The steaks lacked flavor and had entirely much too much fat running through the meat. No comparison, although we believe it is a separate owner... More

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
