The food here was good all around and the atmosphere was perfect with an outdoor view overlooking the bay with a good breeze. Wife did not enjoy the salad bar too much, but an overall great time.

I am not big on meat so I decided on my first visit of many others to go for the salmon. This was the best desicion. The salad bar is ok and the one time I had the ceviche, it was amazing. :-)

we had the tenderloin, which was not tender at all. The hamburger was very dry and as the sun went down, we could not see what was on our plates.

I probably should have had a steak which is what they are known for. Instead I opted for the rack of ribs. For those with a big appetite it was a full rack and definitely filling. I found it to be lacking in the taste department. The service was average but the decor and is nice and the view great.

This restaurant was nearby my vacation rental. The steak was cooked to perfection. Unfortunately my server seemed to be bored and uninterested in being there. Maybe she was having a bad day. Had to ask her for water refills constantly. It was almost 90 degrees, so having been a server before just seemed like common sense to keep it coming.... More

We recently went to El Gaucho's in Curacao and loved it. I had the signature steak "The El Gaucho". A 14 ounce tenderloin. It was one of the best steaks I've ever had. The restaurant was really nice. Set on a hillside, it had beautiful sunset & ocean views. I would go back in a New York minute.

This restaurant serves beef, pork and chicken dishes. The dishes are well prepared and the price quality ratio is quite good. The salad bar is stocked with typical local salads. The staff is friendly and if you have any query, the will do their best to make you feel at home. It is best to get there just before sunset... More

Had dinner at El Gaucho with my girlfriend and we ordered the montly special. This included a 'Soup and Salad bar' as entree, which was very good. The soup was wonderfull and the salads tasted good. The meat was also great, very well seasoned and exactly medium-well as I asked. One thing that could be improved is that there was... More
