Pinchos had such a romantic atmosphere. We chose to sit at the bar and it was still absolutely beautiful. The bartender Marlon was professional and helpful. We ordered a pork dish and grouper. They were wonderful. Even the sides were good. This was our favorite restaurant of the trip! Next time we are here we will definitely be back!

We have enjoyed Pinchos Restaurant for the past few years and it gets better and better. The ambiance of sitting on a dock out on the bay and enjoying excellent food and drinks and beautiful service is fabulous. Do n't miss it!!!

We were in port for a cruise and decided to eat off the ship for dinner. The weather was perfect along with everything about this outdoor restaurant.

We dined here twice on our recent trip to Aruba. You can't beat the location, sitting out in the shallows of the Caribbean. The restaurant is entirely surrounded by water. The staff, especially on our second visit were amazing. Joanna was our server. Our meals were excellent too! My wife had the grouper on both visits. The first evening I... More

Pinchos is the "best kept secret" in Aruba! The location was incredible as was the ambiance and food! Their claim to fame is the pork dish which was just wonderful. The steaks are terrific as well. Their seafood bisque was by far ... the BEST I've ever tasted, smooth, hearty and plentiful. For the location, quality, size and ambiance ...... More

Finally, after 7 years of coming to Aruba, made it to Pinchos. So glad we did! I had the Wahoo special which was excellent. The sauce was super and the coconut rice had just enough coconut. My wife really liked her duck. Views are fantastic, it's on a pier. Joanne, our server, was excellent; friendly & efficient. She did an... More

I ate here twice during my stay in Aruba and I was impressed with the food and environment. I do recommend making a reservation. I was lucky I believe because I came as a party of one early in the evening around sunset on Tuesdays, so they were able to accommodate me. My servers Joanne and Monica took good care... More

We stumbled upon this place while walking down the beach after leaving Barefoot. Immediately we loved it. Maybe it was because it's a dock bar restaurant over the blue sea with a solo guitarist welcoming you in, or maybe it was the staff- they were genuinely happy to have us. The drinks were beautiful. The food looked amazing (we had... More
