“Just Go!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014 via mobile

Friends said this was a must go and they were right. Not touristy. My wife loved being serenaded to Sinatra. Loved it! Break away from the traps and average service and go somewhere you'll love.

“The best steak ever (almost)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014

My wife and I split the 38 ounce porterhouse. If it's not the best steak ever had, it's only because it's in the top three and I've had some very, very outstanding steak and can't tell them apart. If you like variety try the Argentine Parilla (mixed grill). It still give a Brazilian steakhouse a run for the money.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014

This has got to be one of the best dinners Ive had in Aruba,I went with friends and tried the porter house steak.The sides were mushrooms and potatoes.The staff was so increidably attentive and our waiter helped us choose an excellent wine to compliment the steak.We went near closing but our experience was memorable.We didn't feel rushed at all.When I return to Aruba I will definitely be back.

We would go back just to have Oslin as are waiter again he was great. We had the 37th anniversary dinner for two which was delicious but the amount of food could have feed 4 people. A great value for the money but come hungry.

“Great dinner in Aruba”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2014

Spent last week in Aruba and once again had a fine dinner at El Gaucho Argentine Grill. 20 years ago, my wife and I ate at El Gaucho for the first time and now we had the pleasure of taking our 2 boys 12 and 16. We ordered the Argentine mixed grill, lamb, and a tenderloin combo. Everyone enjoyed their meals immensely. All the meats were cooked to order and seasoned perfectly. The restaurant was very crowded but the service was great and the atmosphere very enjoyable. They have a guitar player moving about the tables and singing. The wait staff is friendly and attentive. This place is a must when in Aruba.
