El Gaucho never disappoints. Superbly seasoned steaks, the best chimichurri sauce we have ever tasted, and fabulous sangria- a trifecta. A large local restaurant with attentive staff and a mariachi band that comes table to table accepting requests. A yearly reservation for over 10 years.

I am a repeat customer. I love this restaurant. The skirt steak was delicious and so were the side dishes. Having been to a couple of restaurants on the island, in comparison, this restaurant was reasonably priced for the quality of food.
