I was invited for a late lunch with friends and it was great. Lots of variety... I had an entre of calamari, main course was stuffed chicken with a pasta side & chocolate cake for desert. All for a reasonably 21$. Service with a smile...More

Huge variety on the menu and then come the specials. All are excellently prepared by Chef Jose and his staff. We rate it as one of the top restaurants on the island.

We went to this restaurant twice in a recent 12 nights stay in Aruba. Absolutely fantastic food and very reasonably priced. There is a great selection on the menu and the owner comes to your table to tell you in great detail about the specials....More

We dined at Gostoso twice and enjoyed very good food and service each time. The only negative is some street noise when on the outside patio.

Family owned small downtown restaurant with great food and service and no frills. It is not on the concierge go to list for some reason, but if you want to skip the tourist traps, and want great local food, go to Gostoso

This is a favorite spot for us. We went twice this year and totally loved our dinners both evenings. Jose takes his restaurant very seriously. He is eager for it to be known more broadly. He has been in business 18 years!

While in Aruba in February, we had dinner at Gostoso. First, it was hard to find and we got lost a couple times. Unfortunately, it was not worth the struggle to get there. The decor is cluttered, the food was overpriced... More
