During our first few days on the island we were recommended El Goucho by two different drivers so we thought we would give it a try. We were certainly not disappointed.

But lately I noticed that the quality of both the food and service has been slipping. Absolutely has been better. It is the same old song on this Island, as soon... More

Two people ordered same steak. His was meaty with strip of fat, mine was fatty with strip of meat. Manager agreed was more fatty than it should be and he would take care of it. Never saw manager again and no compensation.

Overall good food near the Marriott for steak lovers. Great views from the top deck and overall good service. Made a reservation and sat right away with a party of ten. Need a better kids menu and the food overall is expensive compared to US restaurants.

Thank Kevin C
