Went to wacky wahoos a couple nights ago. The food is amazing . I had the catch of the day. Make sure you make a reservation . I was here for a month and my reservation was for 3 days later at 9:00 If I had a negative, the night we were there it was very noisy.

We arrived at Wacky Wahoo's early on a Thursday night in March and within minutes the place was full. Word of advice - you'll need a reservation because they're so busy it's unlikely that you'll get a table here without one. Along with the regular items on the menu, on special for that day was a selection of freshly caught... More

They were hitting on all cylinders Monday night at Wacky Wahoo, one of our very favorite restaurants in Aruba! The fish is so fresh and the preparation so inventive and delicious that we can't wait to get here when we arrive on the island. Also wonderful are the veggies and other accompanying accents like cooked plantains and Aruban bread. Reservations... More

Wonderful, casual and very fresh, tasty fish! Generous portions. Definitely a 'go to' spot if tired of the numerous, high end and more formal restaurants on Aruba. Small bar, casual friendly service. Drinks are 'ok'; well prepared, fresh tasty fish is the star here. Reasonable pricing, good portions, fresh fish, casual atmosphere. We enjoyed it!

We have been to Aruba many times, But have never dined here. It was the absolute best meal of the trip. We had a Special Blackened Grouper with Shrimp and Scallops. The herbs it was cooked with were remarkable. Polenta and vegetables were included and perfectly cooked. Everything was amazing !!! Even the Toasted Bread basket was delicious. We had... More

Best seafood we had during our trip. Cooked to perfection with generous portions, Wife and I shared a coconut shrimp appetizer and a fresh (caught that day) mahi-mahi dinner and did not leave hungry. Don't miss this place if you are looking for seafood during your Aruba visit. Fair prices especially considering the great quality of the food. Unless you... More

WW is our favorite restaurant! It can be hard to get reservations but sometimes you are lucky if you show up at 5:30! We love the food and they are so accommodating, tweak their specials...no problem! Plus the wait staff are so friendly!!
