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.

This was my 7th time visiting el gaucho. Last night I went with my family of 5. Before sitting down I used the restroom and as I was leaving I sliced my finger pretty deep on pieces of metal that were exposed on the doorknob in the ladies room. I was bleeding pretty bad and in pain. Not excruciating but... More

My wife and I stopped by fire dinner on our Honeymoon, and WHAT A STEAKHOUSE! We frequent places like the Keg, Ruth's Chris', and the like... And I must say... Far and away one of my favourite by far! If you visit Aruba and don't take the opportunity to eat here, consider it an opportunity missed!

Unless you've had it before, you will never eat a steak as good as the El Gaucho specialty steak. It comes in 12 ozs. and 16 ozs. I recommend the larger one. And it's like a magical experience. Before you know it, your plate is empty! And I do mean empty. Not a piece of fat or grizzle on your... More

It is a big place but with all of the rooms, it still has an intimate feel. We mentioned we were celebrating a birthday and they put balloons at the table but the server never recognized it. Too bad since it was one of our kids. They screwed up our bill and charged us for items we did not order.... More
