This place serves very good food compared to most of the Aruba restaurants we went to, which are overpriced and mediocre at best. The fish was fresh, the roasted chicken and pasta were excellent. A busy place, I recommend reservations. A nice escape from the high-rise scene, and within walking distance.

We found out about Wacky Wahoo from a friend back home that recommended it to us. I'm so glad, it turned out to be a great spot. We were a little put off when we arrived, it was before the dinner crowd (maybe around 4:45) and the restaurant was less than half full. We weren't greeted by either of the... More

We stumbled upon the Wacky completely by accident. Our plan was to dine at another nearby restaurant but it was not open when we arrived. Rather than wait 1/2 hour in the parking lot, our cab driver took us to the Wacky for drinks. We planned to walk back to the other establishment but he suggested that we try to... More

Went to dinner for the first time here last night. I can tell you that it was perhaps the best food we have eaten this trip in sunny Aruba. I started with the Fish Soup, and it was incredible. Small pieces of white fish in a nice seafood broth of mixed vegetables. My wife had the Corn and Crab chowder,... More

Setting is very simple, not very cosy. Certainly not suitable for a romantic evening. Expect just honest fresh food, nothing more. It is a good restaurant to enjoy nice fresh fish.

Wacky Wahoo's is one of the best restaurants on the entire island of Aruba. You are not going to Wacky Wahoo's for the view. You are going there for the food. Specifically the FISH! If you love fresh fish, you will love this restaurant. Extremely fresh fish excellently prepared. Wacky Wahoo's is a very small restaurant so do yourself a... More

I had tried for a couple of years to get a reservation at Wacky Wahoo's with no luck. This time around we were lucky and I was able to get us reservations not only for one night but for two. This was by far one of the best places I have been to in Aruba and I have been going... More

Unique flavors - Aruban flair - not overpowered by spices, but interesting flavors presented in a fabulous variety of dishes! Will definately go again!! Difficult to catch them on the phone to make a... More

Wacky Wahoo is a small, quaint primarily seafood restaurant in Noord. There are only a small number of tables and it has been busy according to the Marriott concierge. Therefore, reservations are recommended. It is casual in atmosphere with a full bar. The food was excellent!! I began with a crab and corn chowder which was very tasty with chunks... More

We've been in Aruba for 6 nights now and of all the restaurants we've been, I would rank Wacky Wahoo #1 for the money. It's a no non-sense kind of place. Service was great and prompt, The seafood is really fresh and very well prepared. My husband loved the Cerviche, and I loved the conch and squid over black bean... More
