El Gaucho Expands Its Already Extensive Menu With New Dishes

August 15th, 2011

Just when you thought it couldn’t get better, it did. El Gaucho Argentine Grill has just recently introduced three new entrees, to rave reviews from fans and friends of the restaurant.

Expanding on the restaurant’s selection of seafood dishes, the chefs added a melt-in-your-mouth Chilean Sea Bass, to the list of main courses. At El Gaucho Argentine Grill the Sea Bass is served as a thick cut, with a perfect light sear on the outside and a juicy medium-rare inside, which is incredible delicious with drawn butter and a sprinkle of Japanese seaweed salad, besides the restaurant’s famed traditional sides.

Another new combination which made its debut at the restaurant this summer featured a jumbo Grilled Caribbean Lobster Tail paired with lemon caper and a tropical fruit salsa. Playing on the grilled lobster theme even further, Lola’s Combo was created, representing Lomo & Langosta, the best of both worlds, a beautiful combination of Argentine Tenderloin & Caribbean Lobster Tail both cooked to order and escorted to the table with clear drawn butter.

El Gaucho Argentine Grill, located in a colonial townhouse on Wilhelminastreet #80, was the first Argentine restaurant to open its doors in Aruba on February 17th, 1977.

It has been serving a variety of tempting dishes since then, starring quality Argentine steaks, which is tender and juicy, charcoal-grilled to perfection. The restaurant menu also boasts some seafood including fresh local catch and shrimp.

This summer the restaurant expanded on its seafood selection, and extended its opening hours. El Gaucho Argentine Grill is now open every day, including lunch on Sundays, offering lunch specials and free sangria. Dinner is served every day with live music, and the restaurant offers Aruba’s only Kids Play Room, where parents may leave their kids to draw, play games and watch movies, while they are quietly enjoying their food.

Garufa Cigar & Cocktail Lounge, just across the restaurant is now being fully renovated and will be reopened with a big splash in the Fall.
