I really enjoyed the Argentinian Ribeye. It was perfectly seasoned. The driver who picked us up at our resort was early and great. Waitress was great too.

I highly recommend El Gaucho if you want a delicious, authentic Argentine meal, gorgeous view, relaxed atmosphere and good quality, non-pushy service. I have lived in Argentina and I can honestly say this meal was deliciously authentic.

Nice location with good views, open air restaurant with a nice breeze. The food was excellent and reasonably priced for the quality. Service was a bit slow and inattentive, had to wave them down if you needed anything or a drink refill.
