So I'm going to take my brother out for a steak dinner our last night, he loves his steak, Karen is coming with us :) Just wondering who in your opinion has the best tasting steaks there. Right now were looking at ElGaucho's, who does your vote go to?

I think the steaks at Chalet Suisse are fabulous!

My vote is for EG's. That's because it's the only steak place I've been to there(6x)! :lol:

Last visit, we did go to El Gaucho. Very good.
Usually don't order steak that much on the island...choose seafood.

El Gaucho. Order the El Gaucho steak! Their ribs are fantastic— they are an appetizer. IMHO the Buccaneer is awful— there were roaches walking up the wall on our one visit, never again!

Tough call, haven't been to El Gauchos in a couple years(since they spilled red wine all over my wife's white pants...not even an apology)
Chalet Suisse, Daniels or Ruth Chris

i always went to el gaucho for steak. last couple of times not so great. One year ricardos was incredible, the next year not so much. chalet suisse has been the most consistent for anything i order there, steak always spot on.

Consistency is important...and yes Chalet Suisse is consistent! Some restaurants are not! :wink:

I am of a different opinion. I think Yemanja has the best steaks. Cooked to perfection on a charcoal grill. Wonderful!

From my 2000 visit trip report: "I had saved Milie’s recommendation for the French Steak House for my last evening on the island. I opted for the advertised special, the Ambassador’s something or other, priced at around $28 I think. I knew I wanted the Charrasco steak. Philippe, my waiter, started me off with a seafood crepe, followed by shrimp bisque. For couples, a bottle of wine is included, so for me they brought a half carafe of red. Finally, the steak! The menu indicated 12 ounces, but this hunk of beef had to be 20-24 ounces! I ordered medium-rare, and this steak just melted in my mouth. For desert, I chose the apple strudel a la mode. Yum. Coffee with Kailua finished my meal just perfectly. With tip, I spent $39."
