We usually order for take out and have for the last couple of times noticed a downward spiral in quality. Most of the meat is still good, the lamb is usually my favorite. My all-time favorite appetizer is the Morcilla and I'm very sad to say that the last few times we ordered it, it has been too hot (spicy)... More

We have friends who have visited Aruba many times. They insisted El Gaucho is the best steak place in the world. They are not wrong. We went on Valentine's Day for lunch & it was so delicious. Great steak & very good service.

Never disappointed in El Gaucho's. The Sangria is the BEST on the island, the waiters are a blast and, of course, the mariachi's are fun. Going after Superbowl this year was a bonus...SWEET CAROLINE and we got our entire room singing...petit tenderloin was out of this world!!!

I was disappointed in my visit this year. I've been here everytime I come to Aruba. I don't know if they have new owners but the food just wasn't as good.

We had the el gaucho as recommended by the server. It had a great flavor and we especially loved the chimi churi on the side. The bread was good too. We went a hour before close and were still treated very well and had great service. 15% gratuity is automatically added here no matter the size of the party. We... More

Loved our visit to El Gaucho - went with 4 friends - everyone reported very good food. The strolling musician/singers were fun and very good. Does get somewhat loud and difficult to hold a conversation when the place fills up.

Thank Darrell R
