My wife and I visited El Gaucho for dinner on the evening of 26th January 2014.

We shared an Ice Berg Lettuce with Blue Cheese starter, and both had the Tenderloin Steak.

The food was excellent. Well cooked, well presented, and full portions.

Try the Sledgehammer Malbec, it's excellent.

Staff very friendly.

Will be going back on this trip.

This place had gotten great write ups so we thought we'd try it. It was even more pricey than other places we had eaten on the island and it was nothing to write home about. I ordered the skirt steak which was ok. The sides were sad and small. I have had far better steaks back home. My husband ordered the shish-kabob with pork tenderloin, filet Mignon and sausage. all were good but nothing exceptional. The wines were pricey.

El Gaucho is one of two or three restaurants that we eat at every single time we come to Aruba. They have the best steaks on the island and we are never disappointed. The meat is grass-fed from Argentina, but you will pay for the privilege of eating great steak as it's on the expensive side.

Enjoy, you won't leave hungry.

Excellent service, fabulous food, enormous steaks. Great wine list, but "island pricey." Second visit even better than the first.

Everyone in our group loved their steak and meals...the group seemed to like the rib eye steak the best. The father/son duo that sang was a great end to the evening. They sang many tunes including sweet Caroline which was enjoyed by all of the Red Sox fans. Service was excellent and the staff is extremely attentive to your every need.
