This little gem is tucked away, so if you aren't staying at the Radisson or Riu Palace resorts, it can be a bit hard to find.

Steak sandwich, quescedilla with salad, side of French fries, 3 Chill beer, and a Diet Coke was just under $38 USD. Suzan our waitress had a great attitude and even offered a bit of super hot sauce made on the island. The place would.have gotten a 5 star if their only washrooms weren't in a different building and if we... More

This is a must stop every time we are in Aruba. We love their grouper wraps. This time we had the gouda cheese burger and Bugaloo fies. So good! The fries are covered with cheese, sour cream and taco meat. We will definitely return and order those fries again. Also can't beat the beautiful view and friendly service!

This place is out on a Pier in Aruba, out over the water of Eagle Beach! Blue water all around, with lots of boats and people to watch. Service and atmosphere is very good. The food....excellent. Fresh grilled grouper sandwich and wraps were great. Goat cheese salad was also. Had nice cold beers from Aruba as well. Total for four... More

Had a salad, it was warm and soggy. Fish was also soggy, tasted microwaved. Close by I would suggest Gilligan's or the next pier over. The pelican pier.

One of the better meals I had, and one of the lowest bills! We went for lunch one day and I am very glad we stopped in. Daily lunch specials were $10 and daily drinks $5!

Good food and service plus a beautiful location. The location is perfect if you are on the Radisson beach.

The food was pretty good and reasonably priced. The drinks were good, great for happy hour. The atmosphere was fun. Live music. The server was good, warned us that happy hour was ending, did we want another drink order. Views from the pier were nice, too bad the sun didn't cooperate for sunset pics but would be a good spot...

Walked here from Divi Phoenix. It's all outdoors right on the water. Very casual, don't get dressed up here. Service was great, good food too. Very affordable, even the drinks. Live music during the week. If you want to be loud and party on the beach, this is your place. If you want a quiet dinner, keep looking.
