Si.ply the best seafood restaurant I have ever been to. Went twice during our week long vacation as we did last year. The freshest, tastiest fish I have ever had. Remarkable concern for my daughter's allergies (6 of them) and amazing chef and staff. After...More

This is a very small restaurant that is walking distance from the Hilton an Hyatt on Palm Beach. In winter season, you need to make your reservation before you to Aruba or you will only be able to get in at 9:00pm. Food is some...More

So for all you rookies out there, this one’s for you - no atmosphere, very friendly staff, quick service, and some of the best food on the planet!. The grilled grouper with lobster ravioli and shrimp over a bed of rice is orgasmic - lol!...More

I know there are complaints about getting this place but it is worth it. Have your concierge make the reservation weeks ahead to solve that problem. The seafood is fresh and prepared exceptionally and the seafood ceviche is by far the best on the island....More

This is one of our favorite places to eat in Aruba. You need to make reservations ahead of time. The food is excellent and plentiful. The catch of the day was so flavorful and delicious!

A reservation is a must! Have your concierge make the reservation. The grouper special was the best grouper I ever tasted. It’s a very small place. Not fancy. Freshest fish you will ever eat.

The fish is fresh, the vegetables frozen. This place is packed, but the food is just so-so. Not worth the hype. Skip it.

On our last two visits to Aruba, the most recent one having been Feb 25 through March 2 (yesterday) we've dined at Wacky Wahoo four times. The restaurant is clean and well appointed, but decidedly casual. The winning combination here is amazingly fresh seafood wonderfully...More

We didn't have any luck. We went without a reservation and got seats at the bar. I noticed several people making future reservations after they had eaten .

I am not sure about reservations via email. I called about 4 days in advance and was told there was a 2 week waiting list. I begged the guy on the phone and was given a 5:30 PM reservation. Your best bet is to go there in... More
