Had a great time at a very friendly venue on the water and walking distance from our hotel. Full house, ate at the bar an assortment of meat on skewers, all very flavorful. Good place to make new friends.

Had a wonderful time at this restaurant along with seven friends. The server was named David, he was personable and knowledgeable. He had no problem answering the many questions we threw at him regarding the menu and also helped us decide on a wine. We all agreed that this was the best meal we had on the island, which is...

We ended up canceling our reservation at another restaurant because we didn't want to leave our spot on the beach and they were kind enough to squeeze us in that evening. The food was really fresh and delicious and the service great. I love that everything was grilled and you can watch them prepare the meal in the center of... More

We made reservations to go eat at Pincho's (party of 6). We were served by Joanna, who was wonderful. She was funny and attentive. Our meal was delicious and it was a lot of food. The restaurant sits at the end of the pier and we were able to watch the planes land at night and the cruise ship sail... More

David's service was fantastic - he was able to tell us his favorites and recommend drinks that we loved. I had the sampler of shrimp, steak, chicken, sausage and it was delicious. Cocktails were also fantastic. Nothing like eating a great meal while watching the sunset in aruba!
