Ate here twice - we all enjoyed it so much we had to go back.
If you like good steak then this is the place for you.

“Always a Sure Bet in Aruba”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2014

I always go to El Gaucho while in Aruba. It is a great steakhouse and your dinner includes three sides, not a separate charge as in most of the upscale steakhouses in Aruba. The food is excellent.

“A used to be”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2014

This restaurant use to be outstanding but it seems to have fallen by the wayside in the last 2-3 years. Meals are rushed and it seems that idea is to turn tables over, get people in and out, etc. The meals are good, priced a bit high given the competition from other area eateries. I wouldn't go out of my way to dine here and a few years ago it would have been one of my first choices.

“High Expectations, And They Were Met”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2014

El Gaucho came highly recommended by friends who had visited Aruba previously. The restaurant is situated in what appears to be an old house and the decor is very pretty with a lot of dark wood beams and tables. The salad and conch were excellent starters and we split the 12 oz. tenderloin. You get three side items. The portions were a bit small but very tasty. As far as price, it was no more expensive than you would pay at a higher end American steakhouse like Capitol Grill or Morton's.
