Friends and family recommended the Argentinean El Gaucho as the best restaurant on the island. We made our reservation with the concierge at our hotel the first day we arrived (Friday) and they didn't have an opening until Thursday and it was the off season. El Gaucho is located on 80 Wilhelminastreet in downtown Oranjestad, we were able to walk there from our hotel, the Renaissance. The décor was Spanish with rustic dining rooms that have traditional Argentine cowboy décor. I ordered the filet, which was served with corn on the cob, redskin potatoes and fresh vegetables. The steak was served with 3 different sauces but I savored the delicious meat with out the sauce. By far the best steak I have ever tasted.
