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.

We are not new to the island and have tired many of the highly rated places..Aruba does have some outstanding restaurants but Gostoso is still our favorite. This little out of the way place is a locally owned restaurant and highly regarded by locals and those in the know. The owner and chef Jose welcomes you and maks sures your... More

This place was amazing a true authentic feel to Aruba. The food was true Aruban food . The service was great . The owner came to each table to welcome the customers . If you want a true view of the food this is a great stop. We ate lunch and the portion size was great .

I have been coming to Aruba for 11 years and Gosto's is, without question, the best place I have eaten. There is a lot of selection on the menu, but the specials are especially incredible. The chef, staff and owner are so friendly. Oh, and try the sangria! Take 18 from the main drag and turn left at Sero Blanco... More

The food, and service was amazing. We are New Yorkers and are picky when it comes to high quality food and this surpassed any expectation that we had. You must try the plantain sushi it's so tasty and unique. The pork with the guava glaze was to die for. The guava sauce tasted like Caribbean bbq. The conch appetizer was... More

Small restaurant tucked on a quiet street and away from the fuzz of tourist places. Hard to find if driving at night, however the drive is worthy. The service was excellent. The Chef/Owner visited all the tables, interacted with guest and explained his dishes to perfection. The environment was relaxed and classic, serving good portion dishes . We ordered a... More

We happened to find this place on tripadvisor and saw it was not in the tourist section. We were all about trying stuff away from the main drag so we found this place. We ordered the seafood pasta and the Aruba Seafood medley with Creole sauce for entrees, escargot as an appetizer, and tres leches cake. We saw that several... More
