El Gaucho is a must do! The food is delicious and the service is excellent. I could not even finish a full glass of water without the waitress refilling it. The tenderloin was deliciously flavored and I am not a huge meat eater.

To celebrate our 10 year anniversary, my husband and I chose this restaurant at the end of our 8 day stay in Aruba. Great food and quick service. They allowed us to split a meat combination platter and didn't charge us an extra plate fee.
