Went to El aucho Aruba on 5/3/10. I ordered the St.Louis Ribs. My husband ordered a combo Ribs/Steak/Sausage dish. Lets start with my dish - the ribs. Absolutely horrible!! My husband also thought they were the toughest ribs that didnt "fall off the bone" like a good rib should. I ordered a caesar salad to start. Absolutely horrible! A good caesar salad should be eaten at room temperature and the dressing should be properly made with egg. This salad was ice cold, and the dressing was sweet, tasted like it came from a bottle. I also ordered a new side ..."Red Bliss Smashed Pototoes". Horrible!! The were bland & dry. Added lots of salt-n-pepper to them, which helped, but did NOT help with the pasty/dry consistency. Now...my husbands dish...he thought the steak was wonderful, as did I. It melted in our mouths. Wish I got a steak dish. Seems thats all they have going for them. The restaurant itself was pretty hard to find, but thats of no fault of theirs. Aruba doesnt mark all their streets with street signs. The neighborhood was pretty sketchy also. The service was inconsistent at best. When we first sat down, three different people came over to wait on us, First, the water lady, then the bread lady, then our waiter to take our drink order. Once we received our meal, we did not see anyone until we were done. No one checked in to refill drink orders, or to see if we needed anything else half-way through the meal. Would NOT recommend this place...except if your looking for a great steak. I, personlly, would NOT go back.
