My wife and I had a nice dinner at Pinchos. We were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary in Aruba. The atmosphere was awesome., very romantic and a great choice for the occasion. Had a dinner reservation at 9(earliest we could get a table with a couple of days notice) We arrived at 8:15 hoping we might get in early. We... More

The staff was very accommodating, so helpful and gracious. The food was absolutely wonderful. Highly recommend their mixed meat skewer. The setting on the pier is so unique and fun, and the restaurant itself is elegant in an Aruban way.

The service was outstanding (Joanne contributed greatly to this) as was the food. This place has high standards written all over it. We went on the first and last day of our vacation. Couldn't stay away! What a setting . Make reservations, kick back and have a Sangria ( or 2) and fabulous food.

We went to Pinchos on some strong recommendations from complete strangers. You do need to make a reservation, which can be made online. The restaurant is out on a pier, but it is very difficult to find from the street as there was no signage along the street. Our waitress, Joann, made the experience more enjoyable as she seemed like... More

We always want to report back on recommendations we get from our friends, so we decided our first trek would involve walking through town, then down along the quay, to have sunset cocktails at Pinchos. Set astride a dock, access is from a beach onto a gated dock, where you are greeted at the host's station. We didn't have a... More

This is a must-go-to-place while in Aruba. Get there before sunset to fully enjoy the experience. The restaurant is located right on the water and there is not a bad seat in the house. The food was amazing (the tuna appetizer was among the best I have ever had!) The drinks were delicious and compared to hotel prices very reasonable.... More

Very enjoyable evening, great location. Food was a bit average. Don't try to go during Carnival unless you are walking

This was the first time we went to Pinchos and it was fantastic. The atmosphere is great right over the water. A great place to watch the sunset. The stuffed pork tenderloin is fabulous as was the pork chop. The service was excellent and our server Monica was great. We will be returning next week when our family arrives for... More

We love the setting of this restaurant, perched on a little wharf surrounded by water. It has a large bar area in the center and tables surrounding it. The service is good, the food is very good. We make a point of going each and every year during our visit to Aruba. Another perfect place to watch the sunset. Its... More
