There's a lot of wonderful fresh fish in Aruba, but sometimes you get a craving for some grilled meat. We found that this Argentinian steak house is an excellent place to satisfy those cravings. It's in the city, and we managed to find on-street parking despite a parade that was about to start. The restaurant is pretty old-fashioned looking, lots... More

Really an awesome dinner, reasonably priced for a steakhouse, and each entree comes with three sides! I ordered the tenderloin and it was incredible.

We made reservations in advance, we arrived to a table adorned with balloons; nice touch. The Ribeye and Tenderloin were cooked perfectly and you could cut with a fork. Our waiter, Marco was very attentive and helpful. Definitely recommend a visit here!

The staff is great and if you have a big party this is the place to go , room is not a problem at this place. Sides are but the real star here is the meat and yes, they do authentic Argentinian churrasco. Knock yourself out and have the ribs, the pork and sausage. If there is room, have the... More

We celebrated our son's first Communion with close friends and family at El Gaucho. As usual the service was great, the food was great and the sangria kept flowing and was great as well. Recommend El Gaucho for great steaks.

After many meals of fish, we decided to try this steak place our last night in Aruba. Great idea! The steak was the best. Three of us had the filet and one of us got the huge ribeye, cooked perfectly. They serve a garlic sauce that is wonderful on the steak, if you don't gobble it up on your bread... More

Very nice place and high quality food. My husband had the porterhouse and I had the sirloin. Just be prepared - their steaks are served untrimmed - which allows for great flavor but a little work to eat. Dip the bread in the garlic sauce they serve for the steak - YUM! Lovely ambiance.

Is a shame that having a very good meat (Argentinian), the service is always very very bad... we where a group of 15 in our party, 2 tables... waiters where very rude from the beginning, but any way we where in One Happy ISLAND... So we keep going… After everyone get their food I receive mine well done even than... More

We serve over 12 different desserts (take a look at clients pictures ) so I don't believe you tried them all, so please do not... More
