We stumbled upon Bugaloe by walking down Palm Beach. We had some great, great drinks there - the Aruba Ariba is highly recommended - as well as some awesome, simple beach food - try the calamari! The live music starts sometime between 6 and 7pm, and lasts who knows how long? Great place to watch the sunset as well, especially... More

Bugaloe had everything we were looking for. It is the perfect place for a casual lunch with the most fabulous view! Everything was cooked to perfection. We visited several times and all in all tried the fish sandwich, mozarella sandwich, fries, onion rings, mozarella sticks, quesadilla. The fish sandwich is a stand out! It is so good we even did...

This is a great place to choose for happy hour, which we took advantage of often (one can never have too many Balashi Chills). On Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays, live music is played, which makes for an entertaining night watching buzzed, sunburned tourists dance the night away to local bands. If you are looking for a great place to... More

It is a tiny restaurant in the ocean next to the Raddison. They have live music while you eat and the food is fantastic! We will def be going here again!

Great location on the pier near high rise hotels. Whole fish & ceviche were delicious. Prices are good and service is fast.

I am really hesitant to give this place a good review because it is like a little hidden treasure that I kind of want to keep to myself! It looks like it's just a funky little beach bar (and it is!). However, everything we have ordered there was fantastic! Fish so fresh it's ridiculous! If you are adventurous, try an... More

We found this place in our search for a seaside view away from the very busy strip behind the high rise hotel area. We hit Bugaloe on what was a quiet night, which was unbelievably perfect for us. There were only a few tables occupied, so we had a romantic dinner eating the most delicious grilled grouper and drinking some... More

Had a midday beach lunch with great atmosphere. Kitchen is a little slow but the waiter forewarned us and it is also on the front of the menu. The food was very reasonably priced and great quality.

We had a great experience eating dinner at sunset. The view was spectacular. There's not a bad seat in the entire restaurant. The menu offered a good variety of choices and our food was delicious. This is a great place to go for a casual dining experience.
