Delicious food. What wonderful choices and great service. Good bar. The fish is so fresh i had octopus vinaigrette app. My husband had a crispy Caesar salad. I had the Portuguese bachala a bit too salty but deliciously prepared. My husband had the carbonara it was as good as you get in Ny. Hard to find but worth searching

This restaurant was recommended to us by a local Aruban at another restaurant. It was our 6th night in Aruba and we had already tried many different high end places to eat but this was the true highlight. The menu was so different from what we had seen we wanted to try it all! In the end we settled on two of the more popular dishes and tried the Stuffed Chicken Gostoso and Espetada a la Mainera with a pitcher of white wine sangria. The seafood in the Espetada was prepared to perfection and the chicken was tender and perfect. All portions were plentiful and the sides complimented the main dishes perfectly. I’m not a wine or sangria fan but the white wine sangria, made with different apples and grapes, was not too sweet and not too dry but just right. A completely unexpected at the end, our bill was less than many other places.

We highly recommend Gostoso’s as a must for anyone visiting Aruba!

This place is just off the downtown action in Oranjestad. You are met at the door and welcomed in. The owner comes out to say hello. Then you are given a mind blowing selection of regular and special items for dinner. We were a group of four. Two had a chicken special, one had a seafood special and one ate off the menu. All were incredible! Mine in particular was a seafood medley of scallop, mussel, clam, lobster, grouper, calamari and other stuff with a curry sauce and rice. One of the best meals I’ve ever had.

They do not have a deep wine selection but what they have is good. Plan on $40-60 per person all in.

The food was wonderful and well-priced for the island. The service was excellent, and the owner is very attentive to his customers - making sure to briefly check-in with each table during their meal.
