Located in a former townhouse in Oranjestad, the award-winning El Gaucho Restaurant has the distinction of being the first Argentinean restaurant to open on the island. The menu features a range of top-quality steaks, grilled to order, along with other savory favorites like the pincho torro caliente or giant shish-kebabs. For a taste of land meets sea, start with a calamari appetizer followed by a heaping plate of surf and turf made with tenderloin and jumbo shrimp. Even though the focus is on steak at El Gaucho Restaurant, there are several vegetarian dishes on offer that are sure to please. In between bites of your favorite dish, spare a moment to look around the dining room and check out some of the traditional decorations in honor of Argentinean homeland. For all you cigar aficionados, stay after the meal is over for stogies and your choice of fine spirits.
