    What about El Gaucho??

    Hi All! New here! Wife and I are about to make our second trip to Aruba this week! Staying at the Hyatt again and can't wait. I'm seeing the restaurant suggestions here and am intrigued about MP, especially that filet mignon. Last time we went to El Gaucho and had the most amazing Argentinian steak. I would figure it'd be a fun place for a birthday too especially with the mariachis there. Anyhow, how do you native Arubans feel about El Gaucho? Is it as good as I thought or a tourist trap? If there's better steak on the island, we'd DEFINITELY want to know about it!!! Thanks in advance and we'll see you soon!

    El Gaucho is awesome but for a different pace try the Papiamento House. Quaint and good food.

    Since 1980, and throughout the many changes, we still love going downtown in Oranjestad.

    I never get tired of saying this, although others may tire of hearing it.

    A vacation in Aruba is wonderful to be sure, that's why we all go there so much. But you really can use up a lot of muscle, that is to say protein, when you're there. You know; suntanning, swimming, people watching, carrying the wife's purchases back to the car, and lifting all those Heinekens. That protein needs to be replaced, right?

    El Gaucho's 16oz Gaucho steak is simply the best tasting source of protein on the planet. This is not a restaurant recommendation in the usual sense. I'm concerned for your health. You can thank me later.

    you're right on the money glenn..the gaucho steak is my favorite..i get it every time we visit el gaucho and that's been more than 30 times by now..it's almost like you don't even need a knife to cut through it cause it's so tender..el gaucho has gotten a little more mainstream over the years but imho they still have great food..you should try their pork tenderloin that's almost as good as the gaucho steak..
