We have been coming down to Aruba for 10 years now, and after having dinner there for the very first time, I have to agree that this is the best find on the island! Gostoso's is a small establishment with limited seating so you must call in advance to secure a table. My family (of 5, youngest being 17) arrived... More

A very good, off the beaten path restaurant--you need a navigation system or app to find it. Food is generally excellent; sangria is great. Our last meal there was good, not great, thus the 4 rather than 5 stars. But, menu has really unique items and it's definitely worth trying. Make a reservation as it fills up quickly. I've had...

What a joy to go back to this lovely place and have the staff remember me. When I walked in, the waiter's face brightly lit up and I was greeted with "Welcome BACK." This was already so rewarding after the long walk from my hotel and I knew I was more than ready for Sangria - seriously the BEST in... More

This place offers local food that is outstanding. The service is great and the owner is very accommodating . The sangria is one of the best if not the best on the island. It is open for lunch too.

My wife and I just vacationed in Aruba. We had 7 great dinners and one of our favorites was at Gostoso. The food and service were both excellent. Very creative menu and they take pride in what they do. Not the fanciest or most expensive meal we had on the trip but arguably our favorite.
