Use to be our go to place for beef. Now too expensive and quality less our gaucho steaks were tough even though cooked right? Quality of beef less. For the price could have gone out to two other better places. Will not go back for awhile and don't recommend it.

The service was attentive, great wine list, I enjoyed a Prime aged Rib eye that was to die for. The side dishes were nothing special but they did not distract from the star of the show the beef.

Service was great and the food was fantastic. It was a 20.00 round trip by taxi from the Marriott but well worth it.

The portions were huge and we couldn't finish all our food. The price was what I expected and I was very pleased with out waiter Francis and his attentiveness to us! If... More

We had always wanted to try this place as we'd heard good things but until this trip we'd always stayed at all-inclusive resorts, so we didn't need - or want - to spend money on meals. Overall very good food, decent service, very clean and well run. Unlike many places overseas the portions here are huge! We both got what... More

Sirloin steak ordered medium was charred on the outside and cool and raw inside. Need was chewy, stringy and had lots of gristle. Prices were expensive ($39) for 18 oz sirloin and 3 tiny sides. Server Walter was friendly and gracious.

Bring your appetite! Go for the Gaucho Steak. 16 oz. of Argentine grass fed beef. Quite a piece of meat, and it comes with 3 sides. It's priced at $42, but for a pound of meat and 3 sides, not bad for Aruba. Eat slow so you can enjoy every bite. Wait staff was excellent, and so were the desserts.
