I ate at El Goucho on a family trip when I was 12. I’m 19 now and still remember your pumpkin soup. I plan on going back the second I can, until then is there any way I can get the recipe? That would make my holiday.

We went here while on our honeymoon in Nov 06… It is the best steak we have ever had… great service too… I took a picture of my 16 oz steak and have it in our photo album… I tell everyone about this place… Craig and Tanya Johnston, Toronto, Canada

I have thought about this place since we left Aruba. The food was wonderful and the atmosphere fantastic. My family comes all the way from Walpole, Massachusetts, US every year and we eat here 2-3 times during our stay!

I used to work on the cruise ship Cranival Destiny from 2003 – 2005 which visits Aruba on Fridays. So at least twice a month, that is every second friday when i was there i went to eat at Gauchos. The best dining experience I ever had. Not only the staeks are graet, but shrimps and most magnificent pumpkin soup, acompanied with excellent variety of vines…If i ever come back to Aruba I willl definetely go back to Gaucho’s. Best steak in the world…

My family visited Aruba this summer. We saw a Tea Pipe in your gift shop. Is there any way that I can buy one over the internet? Thanks!

The best food in Aruba. Wish you had locations in the US.

This was my fifth time in Aruba but only my first time at El Gaucho. But do I wish I started going there from the begining. The BEST steak I have ever eaten in my life. I will definatly be coming back from now on! Is it possible to buy the sauces that are served with dinner. Someone told me that you could buy them in a package, but I didn’t see any. I would love to order it if possible. Thanks.

How do I purchase your garlic sauce? I ate at your restaurant while on vacation last week and want to purchase some! Please let me know…

It would be great to be able to Order your sauces, salt & peppers shakers and assorted gift items online. Do you think this would be possible?


23 Sep 2006


We can’t get over this place, it’s that fantastic! My wife doesn’t even eat steak, but she will at El Gaucho because it’s that good. There are so many fine places to dine in Aruba, but this place has been a constant visit during our trips. An absolute MUST!

My wife and I came here ten years ago for our honeymoon and have come back to aruba 4 times. Each time we come to Aruba we eat at our favorite restaraurant in the world, El Gauchos. We will be back there again the last week of September and are looking foward to it. The greatest Porterhouse steak anywhere!!

We had a wonderful time at Aruba. And dining in El Gaucho was icing on the cake. Everything was excellent. The food, sangria, atmosphere and serivce. My husband and I still remember it after several months have passed by. Can’t wait to dine there again.

Our family have been eating dinner here since 1998 – this is the best in Aruba & anyplace in the states – we will be down for New Years week


05 Aug 2006


The best steak I’ve ever had in my life by far! You must try the house sauce on it as well! The service is excellent, the drinks are made very well, and the vegetables are cooked and seasoned perfectly, great for a family outing or a romantic dinner for two. I highly recommend everyone to try the Aruba-Riba mixed drink.

I wanted to write to say Thank You our most recent visit to your restaurant was fantastic to say the least.

I have Celiac’s disease and cannot eat anything that has Gluten in it or is a derivative of gluten.

My meal was so great on Wednesday night that we came back on Saturday night just before leaving the island on Sunday.

Thank you again for the great meals and memories!!!

My family and I were in Aruba the week of 7-09-06. We went to el gaucho for dinner the second night we were there. The food was great. My wife had the sirloin which was cooked to perfection,and I had the the signature filet. My daughter got the ribs. We loved it so much that we went back twice during the week. The prices were very reasonable,and the service was excellent on all three occasions. El Gaucho is a must when visiting Aruba.

05 Jun 2006


We just got back from our 2nd trip to Aruba and we had to visit your restaurant once again. As usual, it was fantastic! Service was great! ( even the bus girls/boys filling the water and clearing plates) It was a fabulous meal! I do have to ask.. is there anyway you can tell me how to make those sauteed mushrooms? My husband has not stopped talking about them! Even just give me an idea how to make them! Thanks again

My husband and I were in Aruba this past April and El Gaucho’s came highly recommended. What a great recommendation! It was the best steak ever, and the service was excellent. Make sure you go hungry, the steaks are not small.

Often imitated but never duplicated. This is the best steak house in Aruba. Visit and dine when you want the very best beef available anywhere. Take our word on it.


19 Apr 2006


I had the pleasure of dining at El Gaucho in April. I decided to try the El Gaucho Steak. It was just as described on the menu, thick juicey and full of flavor. The smashed potatos awesome. I would really like the recipe for the Gaucho dip/sauce. I think it’s something like olive oil, parsley, garlic, and ?????


16 Apr 2006


I had the most delicious steak I have ever had in my life at El Gaucho. It is definatly worth every penny to pay.

I was at El Gaucho this past October with my wife on our honeymoon. We had quite an enjoyable evening. We drank a nice bottle of wine and I cannot remember the name of it. Could you please email me a copy of the wine list? Thank you!

We visited your restaurant with a group of friends in November 2005 and needless to say they all loved the food. I do believe your steaks are the best in the world. We will be back in Aruba again soon and will visit you again.

I was there in 2003 and hope to go back someday. It was the best steak I ever had.
You served some Argentine sauce with your steaks and I was wondering if it was available for purchase. If not, could you let me know what it was called.


26 Jan 2006


This is my favorite restaurant on the island! Every time we visit Aruba we eat here at least 2 times!
