First time, after an expensive cab, we found that it was closed for a private event during normal business hours. Second time, with our rental car, it was closed during hours when normal restaurants are open. Don't visit without reservations. If you do, be prepared to check out the place Barefoot next door of it's closed.

My husband and I love dining on the beach or water while vacationing in Aruba. We had never tried Pinchos before but I decided to make a reservation based on the great reviews. We were not disappointed! The restaurant is set out on a pier with a great view of the sunset. The food was fabulous! I had the seafood... More

This was one of our favourite meals. The service was fantastic and the food was really tasty - the snickers cheesecake for dessert was exceptional! We had dinner here just before the sun set and it was beautiful.

We make a point to visit Pincho's during each visit we make to Aruba. Each visit has been a wonderful experience! The meals are some of the best on the island and the view of the sunset is spectacular! Service is always great and the atmosphere is wonderful. Reservations are highly recommended as there are limited tables. Ladies, you may... More

Beautiful, beautiful setting, very, very good food. Owner was very nice. We had our rehearsal dinner here. Service was great. Great ambience, live music. I had not realized the music was live until one of my family members pointed it out, it was a very relaxing type of music, one man band playing an instrument (cant remember which instrument). so...

During the first couple of days on Aruba after chatting with different people (locals and returning tourists) everyone kept recommending Pincho's Bar & Grill. I booked a reservation at sunset, and luckily we were seated at a wonderful table with a great view. The food was pretty good (the rice was especially memorable for me. Just incredible!!). However, the service... More

First time to dine here and was so wonderful went back for a second visit during my time in Aruba. Location at the Marina between the airport and Oranjestad made for a great sunset setting. When I visited was just breezy enough to be comfortable. Some light jazz was playing with a live sax player. Now to the food -... More

Pinchos is the best place on the island for a wedding reception. Anabela, the owner is incredible to work with. She is quick to respond, organized and made sure every detail of our event was perfect. We chose Pinchos because we had dinner there on a previous trip to Aruba and thought it was beautiful, the food was delicious and... More

This was our first time to Pinchos Grill and we thoroughly enjoyed it. It is on a pier over the water, unfortunately it was a little breezy, but we had a beautiful view. Very personable, and informative staff. My daughter and husband had a seafood combo special which included lobster, my son had mahi mahi and I had carribean shrimp.... More
