Went there for one night. Seeing I was alone, they offered me a seat at the bar. The bartenders were really friendly, there were nice people at the bar, the view is fantastic and the food was good. I had a very nice meal and evening.

I'll just say that my seafood kabob medley was awesome. However, the waitress was so into the whole presentaion, that we all wanted to take her home to work with us. Fun time, good food!

Not much to say except excellent food, staff and service. Beautiful location to watch the sunset. Definitely recommend to anyone visiting the area!

We enjoyed our Pinchos dining experience of tasty seafood and great service. Our waitress was Joanne and she was Excellent! She was attentive, friendly and knowledgable about each item on the menu. We've been to Aruba many times and have seen many sunsets, but I believe Pinchos has the "front row" for Sunset Dining!

A wonderful restaurant sitting at the end of a pier. Surrounded by ocean this has been one of our favorites. The menu is consistent...the servers vary...It is a very good experience that could be excellent with a bit of finesse!

Let me say that I enjoyed EVERYTHING so much that I am making an intentional effort to write a great review even though our dining experience took place in JULY of 2015 ;) We went to Pincho's and enjoyed with another couple, however, we could have also enjoyed the Romantic atmosphere with just the two of us. Other than the... More

This restaurant is off the main strip and we found it while walking past it at night. It does have very limited seating so when possible I would recommend reservations. My only complaint is that it is dark so you need a flashlight to see the menu which they provide but there is no seeing your food when it arrives.... More

Joanne our waitress was accommodating and attentive. She even remembered us from last year. Four of us had the grouper off the menu, not the special and it was perfect. The managers, while they asked how things were, they did not lend a hand to help their servers when things were busy. The violinist that was there playing was excellent... More

What a gorgeous restaurant to watch the sunset! It is on a large dock and the views so beautiful! Our waitress Joann was so energetic and fun but we were disappointed when they switched out our waitress for a waiter that we kept having to ask for. The sangria was in a small glass and was a little plain. The... More

My husband & I were looking for a nice place on the water to eat our last meal in Aruba. This place wasn't far from us so we got to the entrance a few minutes before they opened. When the manager heard that we didn't have reservations he said they wouldn't have room for the two of us because there... More
