The food was great! Ask for the daily specials they don't show in the menu and they are great. The portions are just about right, if you need something moderate in size and great in flavor this is the place to go.

We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Gostoso; the food selection was Aruban and Argentinian; much more of a local island flavor than the restaurants in the hotel area. We enjoyed meeting the owner, who talked with us about our meal as well as our travel...More

Hi Jose, I wanted to say I am letting everyone I come in contact with to visit your restaurant. We visited you twice during our October vacation. We love your restaurant. Thanks to you and your staff for making us feel like guests In your home. I would recommend that you make sure the concierge at the various hotels have your information in their books. We noticed the Marriott did not. Thanks again and we will be visiting again next year. Ed
