Pinchos was the perfect spot for our last night in Aruba. The service was fantastic. Very friendly and hard-working staff. The menu is extensive and the portions were huge. Great drink menu. The scene is perfect too, sitting on a dock, overlooking the sunset. The price is steep but it was a meal and a night to remember.

We arrived five minutes before the kitchen closed and they did not rush us one bit even with ordering. Tip: get the seared ahi tuna for an appetizer! Remember that this is a grill and most entrees are therefore, grilled. Ask for Marlon! He's great.

First off, we did not have a reservation but the hostess was very nice in accommodating us with a water-side table. Ambience was nice and food was good. This is our 3rd time visiting Aruba so we always try to find restaurants we haven't tried on prior visits. We liked Pinchos but didn't love it. It was a bit pricey... More

Exquisite fresh fish dinners next to a stunning sunset on this restaurant on a dock. Our waitress JoAnn was great fun, fantastic service. Greatly improved variety of choices on menu now, including a few choices for kids. We never visit Aruba without a dinner at Pinchos!

While honeymooning in Aruba, we went to Pinchos for a sunset dinner on a Thursday night. Many of the restaurants around the island don't open until 5pm, and Pinchos was the same. We were a little early, but they seated us at the bar and made us some of the best drinks we've had since landing on the island. We... More

We loved the view and every part of our meal. We rush we had the server that got our drinks and dessert because he was friendly and attentive. Would go back again and recommend it to everyone! We watched the hostess even give bread to two little kids at a table. She took them over to the edge of the... More

My wife and I had a great experience at Pinchos. The ambiance and view were really great. Our reservations were for 7 and we caught the sunset. We sat on the same side of the table to watch the sunset and had a great view of the water for the rest of our meal. The service was excellent and very... More

We stopped in here, with no reservations, pretty late (almost 9pm) on a Sunday evening and within seconds a table was prepared for us on the pier (there were 6 of us). A gorgeous view of the water and night sky. Aside from the beautiful location, I can't decide whether the service or the food outshone the other. The staff... More

The view was just wonderful but the food was disappointing Our order was wrong and the food was not very good. We went just before sunset and the bugs were bad.
