Excellent food and exceptional staff! The owner Jose has the best attitude toward the customers and obviously loves his job! Personally coming around and introducing himself with a friendly smile and genuine interest! The food is all made in house and to the freshest standard!...More

Great place! Small off the beaten path a little but worth the trip. The waiter had an encyclopedia memory of the specials! The owner was out describing and taking orders, he was wonderful. Try their version of plantain sushi for an appetizer. Food was superb....More

We have been at Gostoso 4 times this trip, introducing new people each time to great food and fine service. The atmosphere is local, at least half of clients were locals. The tenderloin was prepared just right but what made it superb were the sauces,...More

We made our reservation online 10 days or so before coming to Aruba. This restaurant is in a quiet neighborhood. Very small and very nice. Food and service was excellent.

How sad. I’ve been going to Gostos long before it was listed on Trip Advisor or Restaurants Aruba. “Back in the day” a one week visit to the island warranted at least two trips to Gustosos. The last few visits have been less than good...More

Try local fare. Excellent cuisine. Off the regular path but considering Aruba is so small, it's not at all far away. I'd recommending taking a cab. Much easier to find at night. They do a lunch seating too. Authentic Aruban!

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
