I have been going to Aruba for several years now and this year my now wife and I decided to get married in the island. We had visited Pinchos grill during the summer before the wedding after our wedding planner recommended it to us. We arrived to the place and the view and the environment were amazing. The menu choices... More

The ambience and view from this pier restaurant is amazing. The food was excellent and the service was good. We mostly had drinks and appetizers. The chorizo sausage and Indonesian satay were fantastic. Overall it's a fairly romantic place but a must go regardless.

This is one of the coolest restaurants, its on a pier and the gorgeous sunsets are to die for! The food is absolutely amazing, and all cooked in an open kitchen at the bar. If you are there you should ask for Alahandro, he's the BEST!!!!!!

I booked this place months in advance for our anniversary (and it was my most looked forward place on our trip) and upon arrival we were seated in one of the crappy tables on the dock around the back. My seat was literally looking at the kitchen. I asked the waitress if we can move and she said there's nothing... More

This restaurant was the first one we tried and boy, were we lucky. It was our favorite and provided us the best meal during the week we were on Aruba. The food was delicious and well-presented. The setting is wonderful. The entire restaurant is above the water and you have to walk on a pier to get to it. We... More

Excellent is the only word to use to describe this restaurant. Location in the water, service was very attentive, food was grilled and great tasting (grouper) and nicely priced. A plus experience in Aruba

Great food, great service. We didn't have a reservation but they managed to get us in right away. Out on a pier. We had a hard time finding the restaurant because the sign had been knocked down recently, but I am glad we didn't give up on finding it! After dinner they gave our son bread to throw off the...

Pinchos was the only place I booked ahead of our trip. We booked our reservation at 5:30 so we wouldn't miss sunset. When we arrived we were the only ones there so we decided to have a drink at the bar. The bartender marlan and jake were so nice. We got chatting with them and it really made our night.... More

Pinchos is one of my favorite restaurants on Aruba. This time we brought friends with us. The conch fritters, cucumber salad and chorizo were all excellent starters. Dinner for the 4 of us were chicken satay, salmon, grouper and conch which had a wonderful taste. You have to get the coconut white rice, it's so good. Stef and Marlon were... More
