Like having dinner at a friend's home...

The Gasparito chicken was excellent. The owner was a wonderful host. I hope this restaurant remains open; it is an Aruban jewel. We visited here our first night and it did not disappoint.

It has been a few years since my wife and I have been to Gasparito. Now it is sad to see that the owners (father and son) have downsized and we were the only ones there for dinner. The food was as we remembered it- authentic and delicious. My wife had Shrimp Coco and I had a combination plate. Both... More

after reading the reviews we were expecting to be blown away. The food was good but nothing to write home about. It was a fast meal appetizer, salad and entree and we were out in a little over an hour. The owner was nice and nothing was wrong with our meal but it was not as good as people wrote... More

My husband and I tried Gasparito on our recent vacation. It was such a cute place! It was in a little neighborhood which was so nice to visit off of the main hotel scene. We enjoyed the food very much, very reasonably priced. The fish and shrimp were particularly fresh as if it were caught that day. My husbands filet... More

We were very excited to try Gasparito based on all of the excellent reviews we had read on it. While the food was pretty good, it was not as good as we were expecting. The owner was very great, and took his time explaining the menu and different choices. It is very authentic Aruban cuisine, and even the setting was... More

This was our 'Authentic Aruban Food' choice. The food was excellent, and the owner was very nice and knowledgeable. He even entertained us with riddles while we waited for our food. If you are looking for a quiet setting and relaxing meal, this will fit the bill.

Gasparito is located in an old Aruban-style "Cunucu" house, with a charming garden (partly coverd) that we had enoyed in the past. This time we were told that it is not being used due to the wind and the mosquitoes (so what's new ?), and indoor only a small room was available (another, bigger veranda style room was kept closed)...

After reading positive reviews in both Fodor's and a highlight of Aruba in the United Airlines flight magazine, we thought we would give Gasparito a try. After spending way too much for mediocre food the previous evenings, it was refreshing to come to a place that not only provides excellent local food at a reasonable price (low $20s for entrees...

If you want the true Aruban cooking this is the place. We had a very nice meal and desert served by the owner and his wife. There is some very interesting artwork adorning the walls.
