We were recommended this restaurant by friends who went to the restaurant 3 weeks earlier, and after reading the reviews on TA, we thought we would try it out. It was a last minute decision, and decided to show up at the restaurant without a reservation and see if there was any availabilty (I would not recommend that based on... More

We love coming here for drinks and dinner. Watch sun set and cruise ship leave port. Fun place. We love their chicken kabobs served w/a peanut sauce.

We happened upon Pinchos as we were driving by on our way to another tired overly-Americanized restaurant and it looked so inviting sitting out over the water that we pulled in on a whim and had one of the most delightful meals ever - Matos is a world-class waiter with a tremendous personality and sense of humor. This will forever... More

My husband and I ate at Pinchos for a sunset dinner. The views were amazing, the restaurant was very romantic, there was live music in the background which provided the perfect atmosphere. The staff was laid back but very attentive. I order the lobster and my husband order the filet, we were blown away by both entrees! I would highly... More

The vibe of the restaurant was poor, the bartenders are not friendly, nor was the matra de, and the music was not appropriate. Also service was slow, our bread never arrived.

My wife and I enjoyed a fantastic dinner there last night. Incredibly fresh and tasty grilled fish plates with wonderful sides. Our waiter Matos was very kind and personable and added much positive to our experience.

Pinchos is definitely a beautiful spot on the island. We went at sunset, and it was a beautiful evening. Our waitress was really fun, telling us the "zen moment" of the sunset was coming and to get our cameras ready, and offered to take a picture of us 2 different times, which was really nice. The service was a little... More

We were here a year ago and ate here because we were staying at the hotel on the land site behind this restaurant. This time, we made reservations and drove down from the low rise hotels. They do everything right - service, food and drinks. You can't beat the view over the water. Their live entertainment is always good. If... More
