My husband and I visited last night and found it to be ok. We both had the tenderloin and it was cooked exactly as we asked. The flavor is just ok, nothing over the top. The view is lovely but I would probably not return.

Looking for a steak meal and good salad bar, El Gaucho is the place to go. Sitting high atop a hill not far from downtown and close to the Santa Barbara Resort, you will find El Gaucho. The service was excellent, they will even provide a free shuttle service from your hotel. When you arrive in the shuttle, the driver... More

My family and I, all being steak lovers, went to El Gaucho one evening. The restaurant's location is on a hill east of Willemstad, which provided a beautiful night view. A cross breeze and ceiling fans provided a cool comfortable atmosphere. The seating in the restaurant is along the waist high semicircular wall, providing a view of Willemstad to the... More

In El Gaucho you sit on a really lovely terrace with a great view. It is a perfect restaurant for a romantic evening if your wife likes meat. With every dish you get also access to their salad bar and soup. I had a Red Snapper instead of meat and it was amazing. For sure the place is not the... More

After seeing an article in a local magazine thought we would try El Gaucho for a change up from hotel food. We were picked up and brought back to our hotel, which was super convenient because by car we would have never found it. The restaurant was located on top of a mountain which provided an excellent view. The food... More

We had asked our hotel to make a reservation but they evidently did not, however, we were warmly greeted by Tim, the affable manager, who was very happy to seat us in a... More

By far, the best meal during our week in Curacao. They not only sent the driver to pick us up at our hotel, at no charge may I add, but the meal was wonderful and the view and atmosphere top shelf. We enjoyed it so much, we went back the next night! We plan on going back when we return......
