Besides the fact that it's a little hard to find, the food and service were impeccable. Anuar was a lovely server and we enjoyed our meals.

I am on Aruba for a week and decided to visit this place. Great choice it was. The owner is friendly and advises you on daily specials. The food is just superb; very delicate tastes. Great meal.

Gostoso is about off the beaten path but worth the trip. Highly recommend starting with their sushi. Instead of traditional seaweed and rice, they substitute thinly sliced plantain, which was unique and delicious.

While in Aruba in February, we had dinner at Gostoso. First, it was hard to find and we got lost a couple times. Unfortunately, it was not worth the struggle to get there. The decor is cluttered, the food was overpriced... More
