“Ate Lunch Every Day Here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2014

We stayed a week at Holiday Inn in Dec and had drinks and lunch everyday here. The bartenders knew us and made drinks just the way we liked. The chicken wings are delic as well as the fish sandwich. If we ordered to go (bring to the beach with us) they always made sure we had enough of everything. Great place, esp if staying close by.

“In the Ruff,Great Stuff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2014

Seats and Tables are made from old freight pallets. The staff are friendly and the food can't be beat. Seafood is very fresh and we have never had a bad meal. It is well worth a visit.

“Amazing fish and sunsets!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2014 via mobile

This restaurant is located at the end of a pier. It is open air and every table has an unobstructed view of the magnificent sunsets that occur every night in Aruba. Their specialty is fish although there are beef and chicken items on e menu. Grouper, the local fish is delicately prepared so you can taste how sweet it is. They have wines by the bottle or glass and many beers to choose from. We stayed at the Marriott which is only a short walk away via the beach and ate there the first. Ought we arrived. It was so good that after trying other pricier restaurants we went back to Pelican,s Nest and ate there the last 3 nights here. We had the swordfish, snapper, mahi mahi but grouper was still our favorite. Dress is casual. Go you won't go wrong.

“15% Service Charge plus very insistent on being tipped in addition”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2014

As anja stated, this place serves good seafood, fresh and tasty. But to charge a 15% service charge and then have the waiter run after us for an additional tip ruined the evening. We are 25 year veterans of Aruba and will NEVER go back and NEVER recommend this place to anyone

“Nice hidden place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2014

it is right on the water. We always order fish because it is always fresh and so tasty. We love sitting outside so we can see the fish in the water while we eat. It is a nice restaurant with a nice view of the water.
