“Just perfect!”
Reviewed 30 April 2014 via mobile

We landed here following the excellent comments and reviews here on TripAdvisor, and we weren't disappointed at all! The place is little and cozy, the appetizers and entrees were delicious and abundant, and the service was kind and friendly, we even had a nice chat with the owner. We specially recommend trying the bacalhau croquettes. Best place we went on the island, by far!

“Best meal in Aruba! Ever!”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

This was our first time to Gostoso Restaurante and it was amazing. The service was incredible, the chef/owner came to our table to see how our appetizers and dinners were and answered questions on how our how our meals were prepared, and the food (all of it) was fabulous! We will definitely be going back...next week!

“Excellent meal and atmosphere!”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

After trying a few restaurants in Aruba with great reviews, and not liking the food, we were glad we came to Gostoso! Its a small cosy restaurant with a bar that offers Portuguese and Aruban dishes. My husband had Chicken Mignon and I had Land and Sea Special. Both were delicious - I had the most tender steak ever! We also had red and white sangria, both were good. Soup of the day was also amazing - creamy seafood soup with lots of cilantro! We finished the meal with a tres leches cake, coffee and port. Overall, it was a great experience. Highly recommend!

“Great Service & Great Food!”
Reviewed 25 April 2014

The food is delicious. Highly recommend the Criollo Sushi Roll and the Flan!!!! Great service. Everyone in the restaurant is very courteous and they go out of their way to make the best of your restaurant experience. Magali our waitress was accommodating, sweet and friendly and the owner was very welcoming too. The lunch special set menu is very good for the price and the food!!!
