Found the restaurant fully booked up at 7pm but kept on trying to get a reservation for several days (don't seem to pick up the phone very often) and finally managed to book. All situated inside and quite full so was very noisy. The staff are efficient and attentive without overwhelming you. The food I had was well presented and... More

Don't let the "wacky" name mislead you...this restaurant offers amazingly fresh fine dining at its best!! We happened to find Wahoo's (as the locals refer to it) through the recommendation of two different locals we had the pleasure of meeting during our trip. Touted as "the best place to get real Aruban cuisine," we had not other choice but to... More

This was recommended to us by a local rum merchant. Service was good, food was excellent. They had barricuda on the menu and it was prepared to perfection. Never had it before and was told in the pass it was not a very tasteful fish. But this was. Do get reservations days in advance. It is a small spot and... More

Luckily, my husband and I were referred to Wacky Wahoo's by someone who frequents Aruba and he told us to make reservations in advance. Like some others, we had trouble getting through on the phone. We had the right number and were dialing correctly but it took 2.5 days for someone to finally answer the phone and take down our... More

For everyone who has ever tried to call Wacky Wahoo it is a very frustrating situation. They do not have a reservation system in place. If you are luck they answer between 3pm and 4pm. My personal opinion is most reservations are made thru a hotel conceirge as most of us do not have the patience to keep trying. To... More

One of the best, if not the best place for fish. The fish are caught daily and served that night. Hard to get a reservation, best to go directly to restarant to make your reservation, or have the concierge make one for you. We had Baracuda & Grouper cooked up Aruban style, absolutely Delicious.
