Have been to the island 7 times and finally stopped in for a steak. Very large steaks. Service was average for places that add the service charge. Fried plantains & garlic broccoli were excellent; mushrooms & corn not so much. Pricey, even for the island, but it was good.

This was our second visit to Aruba. On our first visit, we fell in love with El Gaucho's free, tasty food. The secret to their success if their homemade steak sauce - OMG! So, we had to visit this amazing restaurant again for their fabulous steak dinner. My wife and I split a bone-in ribeye steak. Well worth the visit... More

Upon the recommendation of locals and fellow travelers, we decided to check it out. We ordered empanadas to share as starters, and for an entree I ordered a bone-in ribeye with a side salad, potatoes, fried plantains, and sautéed broccoli. Food: empanadas were okay, crust was maybe a little thick, but very flavorful. Bone-in ribeye was exquisite, actually one of... More

Very succulent tenderloin steak, almost melt in your mouth. Side items are choice. 8 of us at dinner, without much talk until everyone had finished their meal. Everything ordered came to the table at the same time. A must visit place for a good meal

This was our 2nd visit in 5 years while vacationing. Brought the rest of the family this time who loved it just as much as we do. Best steak ever. Chocolate fudge cake is to die for. Still have singers from table to table. One of the few restaurants that was festive for the holidays. Service was excellent. Will continue... More

The restaurant is always busy as it serves perfect steak. We where visiting with our grandchild and family and reserved the semi-private room. This worked out very well. A perfect evening!

Have they gotten too big? The food was great, but the service could have been better. Waiter was friendly, but he had limited assistance and we had a party of 8. Would return, but our first experience at this restaurant several years ago was better.
