This was my third visit to el Gaucho. It gets better each time. I had the Gaucho steak with broccoli and potatoes on the side. Excellent wine. Six of us dined in the main area and had a blast. It's nice to see some of the same wait staff from over the years and the in house entertainment is always... More

LOVED, El Gaucho! We were told that this was "The Best Steakhouse" on the Island. We didn't visit many other steakhouses but the food and steak at El Gaucho was perfect. I ordered the surf and turf that included a 6oz and 3 shrimp with 3 side choices and everything was cooked to perfection. Staff was awesome and the food... More

ELGaucho is by far one of the very best in Aruba. The food is rich in taste and you feel like you're truly in Argentina when you step inside with it's decor and wait staff. Definitely try ElGaucho. You won't be disappointed.

We usually order for take out and have for the last couple of times noticed a downward spiral in quality. Most of the meat is still good, the lamb is usually my favorite. My all-time favorite appetizer is the Morcilla and I'm very sad to say that the last few times we ordered it, it has been too hot (spicy)... More

We have friends who have visited Aruba many times. They insisted El Gaucho is the best steak place in the world. They are not wrong. We went on Valentine's Day for lunch & it was so delicious. Great steak & very good service.

Never disappointed in El Gaucho's. The Sangria is the BEST on the island, the waiters are a blast and, of course, the mariachi's are fun. Going after Superbowl this year was a bonus...SWEET CAROLINE and we got our entire room singing...petit tenderloin was out of this world!!!
