Every year when visiting Aruba we always dine at Wacky Wahoo's. Fresh fish cooked with a local Aruba flair is always very good, but maybe slightly salty for some pallets. Recent remodeling provide a more enjoyable atmosphere for casual dining. A variety of fish catches are available everyday in larger portions than most restaurants. On a recent visit we had... More

This restaurant was highly recommended by one of the taxi drivers and I can see why. It was absolutely delicious. Lots of fresh fresh fish choices. I had the shrimp and scallops which were delicious. Both of my sons had barracuda which they loved. Service was excellent as well. One of our favorite restaurants during our week in Aruba .

What it lacks in location and view, it makes up,for in service and food quality. All four meals were excellent. Food was prepared quickly. Service as attentive. This was our best meal on Aruba. Prices for most entres are in the $25 to $30 range.

If you could combine the food here with the "Flying Fishbone" setting, you'd have the perfect eatery..... Having said that.... If you're looking for authentic island recipes for seafood "just pulled from the sea" and don't mind a normal "island dive" vibe, look no further.... Being a group of 7, we were able to sample a variety of dishes (Ceviche,... More

We had passed by this place several times before and always thought it was a hole in the wall but it was a pleasant surprise. A... More

This was the best meal we had on the island. The fish was freshly caught, prepared perfectly, and the sides were enjoyable. Plan to go twice.

That's not the way you make business. I... More
