El Gaucho or Moombas for a rehearsal dinner?? Which one has bettter food? price?? music?? ambiance??? service?
Is it next to the RIU Palace? I have about 30-40 guests coming and was looking for someplace close to where we are staying..at the RIU without having to transport everyone.. I've heard great things about these two, but afraid they aren't close to RIU and will have to pay $$$ to transport everyone..... Any ideas??? Is Gaucho or Moombas close? Any close GOOD restaurants for reasonable prices next to RIU or walkable distance from RIU?
JT20, El Gaucho is downtown, and to be honest, a rather LOUD place, and by the way, not cheap.....You will have to cab it...If you are looking for a quiet, special evening IMOP this isn't the place for you. I have not been to moomba's so I can't comment.

Moomba is walking distance from the Rui. There is also Gianni's which is an Italian restaurant across the street from the Rui. Perhaps, they can provide you with a set menu with a few alternatives to keep the price in line. Gianni's is a very nice place but it doesn't have the same ambience as Moomba's. The nice thing about Moomba's is that you can sit on the beach which is the best!

I think most everyone has chimed in that El Gaucho is neither quiet enough for a rehearsal dinner, not cheap, and not near the Riu.
I think the problem with MooMba is that, being all open air, and being quite popular, it's going to be very difficult to communicate with your group and run the actual rehearsal. I would think places where your whole party can sit together at some large tables, and you can have at least semi privacy will serve this best.
Many places that have both inside and outside dining might be able to accommodate your group inside, and are walking distance from the Riu. Some of these might include Tango or Fishes and More. There is also a private room (well, area) at Blossoms.
