El Gaucho restaurant is by far the best restaurant we ate at during our holiday in Curacao, December 2016. I cannot understand any negative reviews, because our experience was positive, and we can't wait to visit again! The t-bone and the churrasco steaks we ordered were cooked to perfection and the salad bar offered a variety of salads to compliment... More

With a wonderful view and good food El Gaucho is a place that you should go. Dinner is the best time to go and I do recommend a reservation. Ask for a table in the border. The service is basic but the crew is nice. The manager, Tim, is very good.

Starting off, the view is great but isn't good enough to make customers happy for the not so great food or terrible service and work behind the scenes. It took us 1 hour after we ordered our drinks to get them, and 1/2 of them weren't right. Then we started to ask for our server who wasn't nice one bit.... More

If you ever have the pleasure of visiting Curacao please do yourself a favor and avoid El Gaucho at all costs. The service was absolutely ATROCIOUS, the wait staff was rude and distant, almost seemed like it was a burden for them to assist you. We were seated at the restaurant and then it took 20 minutes for them to... More

We had dinner at El Gaucho 1 year ago, and we said that we had to come back. Everything was amazing. Not just the steak. The salad bar was very fresh, and the soup very tasteful. You need to leave some room for dessert, and of course wine. The view is just stunning. The waitress and owner were extremely attentive.... More

I go to El Gaucho every few months. Now it was 4 months ago, and a lot of things changed. It's a place that can be a nice atmosphere, but now, we were alone, and we understand why. The prices went up, and the quality went down. You get a steak of 200 gr (is it 200 gr?) on a... More

We talked to both the waitress and the owner, neither of them was willing to offer something for a vegetarian visitor. The pick: Soup & Salad bar. Not worth the money, because the soup was not vegetarian and some of the salad options contained meat or fish. This not at all indicated at the salad bar by the way. So... More

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.
