What a great find! It was our second time on the Island and every restaurant that we went to was fantastic, including El Gaucho. I order the steak and shrimp and it was so delicious. I am picky when it comes to how my steak is prepared, because I like it seasoned and cooked medium rare - sounds simple but most steak places just can't seem to get it right. Well, El Gaucho got it right - our whole party enjoyed their meals. I would like to return to the restaurant again next year!

I was recommended to this restaurant by many people but i was not impressed with the food. The service was terrific and the environment was great

The food was great until the main course. I ordered the short ribs and only took two bites. It was very tough and fatty. My boyfriend got the sampler of 5 different meats and thought the same thing. Maybe we are tainted from NY steak but this was not the greatest.

What a great place and Great Food! We enjoyed it so much we went there twice. Make sure you order the Fried Cheesecake, it's AMAZING. . . the first time we shared, the second time we each got our own. . . there is nothing like it. The steaks were delicious, but one of the BEST pork tenderloins ever. You won't go wrong with anything you order. Nice hot and one of the Best places to eat, but you must have a reservation after 6.
