Ambiance!!

Great live music at an amazing scenery, good drinks, fair price, close to all the nice hotels. Great for watching the sunset and staying for drinks and dinner after!

This was one of our favorite spots for lunch and evening drinks during our honeymoon. Bugaloe has a laid back vibe and is surrounded by the gorgeous water on all sides. It was fun to sit outside and grab a quick bite - food was surprisingly delicious (loved the shrimp salad). Good people watching and overall entertaining atmosphere.

Wonderful little island bar and restaurant right on the pier at Palm Beach. Go for happy hour and stay for dinner. The view as the sun sets is absolutely unbeatable. Staff is friendly and the food and drinks are as good as you'll find in the area. It's a great place to relax and experience Aruba.

Dining on the beach with a beautiful view, watching the sun go down. Boats along the pier make the right background for a familypicture . Relaxed atmosphere (dresscode flipflops) , friendly and accurate staff. Took back plate with nuts because of allergy without problem and replaced it without extra costs.

very small and slow service. switched out waitresses on us several times so we didn't know who to go to for questions. Weak drinks very weak. Don't go to bars near all inclusive resorts

Great place to stop for lunch while hanging on the beach all day. Very casual, great views of the water. Food was really good and staff were friendly and attentive. We ate here twice on our vaca.

We've been to Aruba 5 times now and always visit Bugaloe. Gotta say, it really is one of my favorites. The view is to die for and the food is pretty good as well. We went once at night when they had entertainers singing. It was a lot of fun. It's not a fancy spot, but it is a lot... More

Great place to enjoy a casual meal. We had lunch once here, I had the bacon chicken salad very good, nice size too. My daughter enjoyed her BLT, but they were out of curly fries. We had even more fun going to the late happy hour,10-11pm. While most of Palm Beach is quite by 10 pm, this is a fun... More

Excellent bar/restaurant for late afternoon/evenings, with impressive sunsets, nice food, great cocktails and very friendly staff. In the evening, some staff members start to sing and also performances of life bands. Bit touristic, but for sure worth to visit.

We came here because of the reviews and because it was within walking distance of the Divi Phoenix. We went late on a Friday night. They were advertising live music, but it was really 3 people singing karaoke. Don't get me wrong, they were good, just not what we expected. We ordered Bugaloe fries and the Bitterballen. Fries were frozen... More
