“Once again, best meal of the trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

You are not going to get a meal with fresher fish anywhere on the island. Friendly, fresh, and well-prepared. Once we were seated, the food came in a timely manner. Will DEFINITELY return next time we are in Aruba. Well worth it.

“Can never go back”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

This was our second visit to Wacky Wahoos. Last January the host had mixed up our reservation and gave our table away. Eventually we got another table and the food was delicious. So this January we decided to go again and hoped for the best. Well shame on us. We had an 8:00 reservation and we were eight people. This time they had our reservation correctly but claimed we would have to wait awhile because the large party that was at the table assigned to us was late for their reservation. They had not even been served at this point. We were hungry and decided to leave because of the indifference shown to us by the host, Harold. This seems to be a pattern at this restaurant according to cab drivers and others we spoke with. So although we know the food is very good, you are gambling with wait time and if you will even get a table.

“Our new favorite!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

Small restaurant in a strip mall (xxx next door) so getting a reservation can be tough. But please don't let this dissuade you from going. Save the romantic views for another night and come here for the food. Lobster tails and of course the Wahoo are excellent.

“Fabulous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

Based on some negative service reviews, we almost didn't try this restaurant. REALLY glad we did, as the food was fantastic, and the service was very good. This was some of the best fish we have had during our time in Aruba - very fresh, very well prepared, extremely tasty.

The restaurant is small, and we would definitely recommend making a reservation. If we had more time in Aruba, Wacky Wahoo's would definitely merit a return visit!
