    Best Steak on the Island

    Hi there! Me again, hoping to start a spirited discussion about meats. I'll preface this by saying I'm a 99%-er, meaning that 99% of the time I do not eat meat. The other 1% of the time, I'm in Aruba and can be found breaking all sorts of dietary restrictions (my own) with whoever will sling a piece of beef the size of my forearm (I'm 230 lbs, so...) at me. I'm hoping to start a spirited debate here.

    Which restaurant has the best steak on the island?

    Since I'm starting this, I'll cast my vote (though not nearly as experienced as you all) for El Gaucho.

    My husband used to swear by El Gaucho. Last trip we didn't even go there. He said the steak wasn't as good anymore, but this year he wants to return and give them another shot.

    All of my boys think Texas de Brazil has the best Filet Mignon with Chalet Suisse a close 2nd on the filet.

    my favorite is Madame Janette's - Madame’s famous Burgerloin
    Our Prime Tenderloin, cut in two halves and filled with Sautéed Onions, Mushrooms and Cheese. Topped with our Sauce Béarnaise

    A lot of good options so far. I had never heard of the Burgerloin before. That sounds delightful.

    I told my wife I posted this, and she pointed out that my favorite thing at El Gaucho ISN'T actually steak. She is, of course, absolutely right (as always). The Argentine Mixed Grill platter there is out of this world.

    I wonder if they would make this without the meat? Or maybe with chicken? Sounds delish.

    i bet if you sent them a note asking about it they would do it!
    kasi and his chefs are super accommodating. have you ever had the almond encrusted grouper at MJs?
    it is beyond belief.

    I don't always order steak in Aruba but the best one I ever had was the NY Strip at Sunset Grille.

    DW and I had a fantastic chateaubriand at Chalet Suisse but that's not really a steak.

    Not a fish eater either. I know, I'm a pain. I did try Grouper for the first time last year at West Deck. I think the "famous Burgerloin" should be done with an eggplant steak! That sounds amazing!

    The best, and the BEST by far, the filet at the BLT- it was melt in your mouth good....Second place would be Sunset Grille for me.
