Awesome birthday dinner

We went to Pinchos on aug 30 for my husband's birthday. The setting, service, ambiance and food were all 5 star! I had requested for champagne and cake and everything came out perfectly! Wonderful memory added to our Aruban experience!

Had a romantic dinner for two... But the restaurant is also family friendly! Everything is grilled right on the deck and the catch of the day, Mahi Mahi, was incredible! It is the perfect spot to watch the sunset and the ocean deck seating creates a relaxing atmosphere!

It was our last night of 9 nights in Aruba. Pinchos was real pretty...had to walk on a floating dock to reach the restaurant which was also on a floating dock. Beautiful view of nighttime Oranjestad, all lit up. We shared a wonderful sausage appetizer and both had a fish entree....I the local grouper and my wife yellow snapper. Excellently... More

This place is beautiful. There are only outdoor tables set on a dock, every one is perfect. Our server, Joanne, was wonderful. Food was excellent, service was excellent, this restaurant is one of our "Top 10" places to go while in Aruba.

While we dined elsewhere on our actual anniversary, this was our best overall dining experience in Aruba. The food was fantastic, the service was wonderful (shout out to Joanne!) and accommodating for our children (ages 16, 14 & 8) and the setting was exceptional. Don't miss it.

Absolutely wonderful! Fantastic views, extraordinary service, meals and cocktails. A special thanks to Joanne- our server who made all our evenings special. So sad we had to leave earlier than expected.

We've been coming to Aruba frequently and never dined at Pinchos before. After a long taxi ride from the High Rise Hotels, we arrived and were seated promptly. The table were outside on the pier and while you dined you can hear the fish swimming below the deck. Our only complaint is the limited menu, especially the appetizers, we had... More

Food is always excellent and the atmosphere is one of the best on the island. Reserve a table on the front of the pier for the best view of the sunset. Limited seating so definetly make a reservation.

This was our second trip to Aruba and we couldn't wait to get back here to Pinchos. The sunset during dinner is beautiful! Joanne our waitress was great and was so knowledgeable and her attention to detail was great!! She even took my kids over to show them how to feed the fish. The kids enjoyed their food as much...
