Our first night on the island and we happened upon this restaurant just in time for cocktails at sunset. They have a wonderful outside deck for dining. At first we thought we would just have drinks and perhaps an appetizer but we ended up staying for dinner. Between the four of us dinner consisted of the filet steak, Churrasco, Rack... More

Most tender steak I have ever ever had. I had the 'surf/turf' combo but they call it something else. Stray cats running around the restaurant (just a warning to the allergic). Excellent service and very friendly, relaxed atmosphere. Could have done without the mosquitoes.

We had eaten at the El Gaucho in Piscadera and my wife enjoyed the ribs so much that she wanted to go back. So we were very happy to find another El Gaucho that was closer to where we were staying. In retrospect I wish that we had driven back to Piscadera. Our waitress killed the mood for us right... More

The evening started out with our waitress flashing a big beautiful welcoming smile. We knew we had arrived at a good spot. The four of us each had different types of steaks. (Mine was a bit cool to be honest) I tried the fried yuka as a side dish. It was tasty. They have a nice wine list and some... More

The view is spectacular...the restaurant is beautiful. However the food combined with the service, definitely lacking. Salad bar was good, downhill after that. We both had steak, mine was cooked as requested, husbands overdone. Baked potato was still hard in center, not cooked. Server never asked if we wanted refills on drinks. We had to call her back to our... More

The resort front desk made a reservation for us. The restaurant shuttle came to pick us up on the time established. The driver was great. The restaurant was beautiful from the entrance. The view was amazing. The servers were attentive. The food was plenty (Argentinian BBQ Grill Platters) and the price was right. My experience was pleasant. Would highly recommend... More

Our hotel offered a free ride to and from this restaurant, so we couldn't resist a visit. We went a little after sunset, and the view was breathtaking. It was great to see a view that's more mountainous and not the same beach that we had been seeing all week. It seemed to be very busy the night we visited,... More

Ate here tonight. Great steak and shrimp for me and Argentina Platter for hubby. Steak was cut it with your fork tender and very tasty. Hubby's platter was so big he couldn't finish it -said the ribs were the best he had in a long while. Service was excellent! And the dessert selection was stunning! I had the raspberry cake... More
