Ratings and reviews

Travelers' Choice
Pinchos is a casual yet chic grill and bar on a pier completely over the clear blue waters of Aruba. We offer a distinctive concept and atmosphere with outdoor dining in very intimate and romantic surroundings. All tables are right over the water, under the stars and accompanied by the twinkling of candle lights. Enjoy a mouthwatering, yet healthy meal (all grilled items) or just stop by for the unsurpassed bar/lounge atmosphere. To truly enjoy those ideal Aruban sunsets, Pinchos awaits all guests with a tropical concoction, an outdoor chic living room type setting, and a mix of contemporary tunes, which will enchant each and every visitor.

We visit Pinchos every time we are in Aruba for a sunset dinner. The atmosphere is very inviting and the service is excellent. Floyd always takes great care of us and provides top service every time.

Excellent place with an excellent view of the water and sunset. Floyd was our server and was great. He took care of all our needs and was very attentive. I would definitely come back here. Food was great.

we came for the sunset but it was cloudy so not much to see. we got there at 645 without a reservation and all the tables facing the sun were already taken. def try to come early if you want a good table. this restaurant...is directly on the water. parking is right where the sign is. have to walk through a gate to get to the pier/restaurant. i got the catch of the day and my bf got the skewer sampler. the fish was so fresh and the sauce was very tasty. we got the truffle fries and brussels sprouts as the side for our entree. we almost ordered another side because we didn’t think it’d be enough. it was. we were so full after dinner. such a surprisingly good meal. def recommend.More

My wife and I had dinner here on night while on our honeymoon. As soon as you see the restaurant, you are struck at how beautiful and romantic it is. The atmosphere was wonderful. The restaurant overlooks the water and the ocean looked so wonderful...at night. Make sure to ask for Michael as your server! He was very friendly and knowledgeable about everything on the menu. The food was amazing too! This is a very special and romantic restaurant that you must visit!More

Our server Ronald was very helpful in suggesting our meals and drinks and he was spot on with everything! The sunset was incredible and we had the best table on the pier. Everyone was very friendly and welcoming and they all made you feel safe....The Seafood bisque was the best my husband had ever had and the frisee and tomato salad was delicious. Can't wait to go back.More

Been coming to this island for more than 16 years and this restaurant for many years. Always a great meal and a great view. Fresh snapper tonight was fabulous and attentive service from Floyd. Put this on your “must visit” list.

We eat at Pinchos every year and continue to be delighted. The atmosphere is wonderful and the food is always top quality. After being seated on the deck closest to the water, we were greeted with great service and delicious food. Two in our party...of four had fish, and I had the half chicken and my daughter had beef. We all had delicious desserts (chocolate cake and cheesecake). There is NO DOUBT we will return each year to one of our favorite restaurants on the island. It continues to get better each year!More

Very delicious food. Javan, the manager, was very helpful and kind. The Bon Nochi was absolutely delicious- I recommend. I also recommend the truffle fries. Don’t be put off- they don’t have a lot of frill on them as other truffle fries do, but they...are FULL of truffle flavor. Honestly the best truffle fries I have ever had.More

It is Kid friendly. Although the food is only OK. I see children in most of the restaurants in this area. You may want to look at Yemanja for a nicer meal.
