Last time I was on the island the power was out on a good chunk of it but luckily this side of the street had power! I had been sick the couple days before and was still feeling a little dicey but a friend took me here and oh man am I glad they did. The steak served on the... More

Great restaurant, close to hilltop giving you great views of the island. Food was good, service and staff friendly. My only complaint was the first cocktail we ordered was watered down and the tonic flat (it was a Gin and Tonic). The hotel is decorated nicely and the floor plan is open air (so bring along some bug spray). And... More

You pay for the nice view and atmosphere, not the food. Food to expensive for you you receive. I ordered Medium-Rare, receive Medium-well cooked rib eyes.

The entire evening was spectacular. The food, the service, and the venue. The steak was exactly that of what you get in Argentina. The marinade was exactly right along with the way the grill it over an open flame. The service was on top of everything...some of the best that I have experienced on the island. The dessert tray...well let... More

We stumbled across El Gaucho on our last night of vacation on the beautiful island of Curacao and must admit, the food was the best meal we had our entire trip. The atmosphere was also beautiful and the service was impeccable. The only part of the evening that spoiled it "for me" was the MANY bug bites I got while... More

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
