Don't let the name or location stop you from visiting this restaurant. The best meal I enjoyed in Aruba, and even told the chef/ owner at the end of the meal. Greeted by the bartender and waiter who was friendly and knowledgeable about great local seafood. The owner fishes daily for the fresh catch of the day. Taking our waiter's... More

Fresh fish caught every morning. They usually have 4 different options for fish each day. I had the barracuda and it was awesome. Something you never see in the states. They can prepare the fish in a bunch of different ways. The fish soup is also good. The ceviche was one of the best I have had. Its a small... More

If you are traveling to Aruba Wacky Whahoo is a must try. The absolute best food and fish served in Aruba. If you don't try another restaurant this is the one. Make sure you make a reservation because it is always packed . Try the grouper Aruban style it's a don't miss.

Wacky Wahoo's was absolutely delicious! We had an 8:30 reservations, which is generally needed as this place is small. The waitstaff was attentive and accommodating. We are a family of 4 and all of us ordered the same meal because it sounded fantastic. We ordered the Barracuda, which was delicious. The fish was great, along with the salsa and all... More

This restaurant was suggested to me by one of the sales people at the Marriott Ocean Club and I can't thank them enough. We made a reservation for when the restaurant opened at 5:30 about a week ahead of time. The restaurant filled up about 20 minutes after we got there! Knowing ahead of time about the big portions, we... More

My wife and I went here the first AND last night we were in Aruba. We both LOVED this place and have never had a better meal on the island personally. The chef knows what he is doing and the ceviche* was fantastic. If you are in Aruba please go here

I was lucky to get through to the reservation number during the 3 to 5pm window to book for my family of 6 on a Tuesday evening. My persistence after getting a few busy signals was well worth it. We enjoyed a fruity Argentine Sauvignon Blanc with very tender shrimp and fish ceviche along with fresh conch and calamari appetizer.... More
