Tonight was my second visit to Gasparito and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. This is the only restaurant I could find around Eagle and Palm Beach which actually serves pan bati, which is a local type of bread that is similar to a tender pancake - really tasty. I had the Gasparito Chicken which is served in a delectable sauce, with... More

Hidden in the backstreets of Aruba, this family owned spot has incredible food, the owner and his wife make you feel right at home. Don't miss Chicken Gasparito.

We were a party of 10 and we chose to sit outside beside the fountain. Our host entertained us with riddles and tales. We devoured three courses. The escargot and the coconut shrimp were very nice. The two Aruban combination dishes were particularly good and included a lovely portion of fresh fish. I really enjoyed the quesillo that I ordered... More

We wanted authentic Aruban cuisine so ambled to Gasparito & were not disappointed. Full platter of food cooked to order. Succulent shrimp & well spiced goat meat. Nice for a romantic date or family dinner.

After being misdirected by many well meaning people, we finally arrived very tardy, to a very pleasant and understanding Host (the father). I would have l liked to have dined outside, as recommended by our host, but one of our party, (in his nineties) preferred to be inside where it was warmer (they even turned the A/C off for us!)....

Some times you wonder how a restaurant stays in business this was one of them. There are three tables having dinner, eight people total. We both order the combo plate to try a few different dishes and I order the soup. We sit and sit and then then the dinners arrive. I inquire about the soup and am told the... More

Gasparito is off the beaten path. It's a quaint cunucu house with a patio. I like sitting outside because it's Jan. The fish special of the day was the wahoo. My boyfriend ordered that. The piece of fish was so big he brought a good portion of it back home to have for lunch tommorow. I got the shrimp scampi,... More

We stayed near here and were able to walk. The patio is enclosed with a fountain constantly streaming which is very relaxing. We had read all previous reviews and they are accurate. The owner is lovely. The fish soup and Gasparito chicken was delicious. Nice relaxed dining experience

If you are looking for a romantic place to have a great meal away from the crowded loud tourist establishments, this is the place for you. The restaurant is located in the old historic house with a lovely courtyard. The prices are more than reasonable. We started our dinner with Alicia’s Fish Soup, Escargot and Seafood Ragout that were wonderful.... More
