We had a rehearsal dinner for a group of 30+ people. They were able to serve everyone their main course of either fish or meat while keeping it hot, a very rare feat in large groups. The Filet Mignon was cooked to order and cooked perfectly. The Mahi Mahi was very moist and flaky. The servers were attentive and quick... More

Food was lame, nothing stood out, the conch cakes were good but nothing else really knocked our socks off. There were 11 of us so we tried a lot. The pier is gorgeous. Worth it if you're staying nearby to get a snack and a drink. Service was funny but she was too intense and a little rough around the... More

Dinner was lovely. Had the conch fritters which were probably one of the more "memorable" items on the menu. The fish was good (I had the mahi), although I wouldn't say anything unique or special in the way it was prepared. Very good though. Husband had the mixed grill, one steak tip a little over cooked, but in all good.... More

My first time here and I loved it. I had Pan-seared Caribbean Grouper with apricot and ginger dipping sauce. It was perfect, so fresh, tender and moist. The shredded vegetables were a great complement to the fish. I will definitely go back.

Our party of four dined here on Monday and we couldn't be happier. Thanks to Anabela, Jorge and staff !! The sunset view was outstanding, we watched the cruise ship sail away in front of us and the incoming planes fly overhead. All of the meals were exceptional and we treated ourselves to some of the best cheesecake we have... More

Everyone told us about this place, and the hotel concierge seemed excited when we asked her to make a reservation there, but I was let down. It's on a dock over water, which was cool, I guess. Maybe we went too late (8:15) to get all the beauty. But the food was mediocre at best, and pricy! All fish came... More

I reserved Pincho's for my rehearsal dinner and had the pleasure of coordinating with Anabela. She answered all of my questions promptly and accurately, which I appreciated as a stressed out bride-to-be from a different country. She made the process as easy as possible, and tried to accommodate my needs to the best of her ability. Much to my dismay,... More

Cannot say enough positives about this little gem. We had reservations at sunset and it did not disappoint! The food and adult beverages were awesome and the service was superb. We are staying at the Renaissance and it was only a short walk towards the airport for us. Highly recommend this to anyone in the area, also close for cruise... More

Food, service and atmosphere was awesome! I loved our waitress joann, she made it super special! I would go back again and recommend to tourists and locals. If you go in the evening, make sure your phone has a flashlight. Lighting is very limited. I like to see what I am eating!!! ( the eye eats first)
