My wife and I had an excellent experience at Pinchos. We had their signature cocktails, the Champagne Mojito and the Red Sangria, both very good. We started dinner with the fish cake appetizer and then each got the catch of the day special. It was griled wahoo served with coconut rice and grilled vegetables. Our server, Joanne, was very knowledgeable... More

We went there on a friends recommendation and we were not disappointed. The food was excellent, the service was top-notch (Joanne) and the sunset perfect. A must do in Aruba

We went to Pinchos for the final evening of our honeymoon. We arrived before sunset with a beautiful view of the sunset. The food was spectacular and the views were breathtaking. The service was first class. If highly recommend this for a romantic dinner- you will not be disappointed.

We have tried to get into Pinchos on a last visit to the island but was always booked. This time we took the chance to just walk in at opening with the hopes that there would be a table that we could sit at and we were lucky this time around. Before I go on, if you plan on eating... More

Beautiful scenic restaurant on a dock overlooking the ocean & a little past Oranjestadt. Food is freshly cooked on a grill & you can watch fish swimming below you. Service is excellent & would suggest reservations as we arrived at 8:00 & were lucky the owner was able to find us a table. We both had the grilled garlic shrimp... More

This was our second visit in 2 years. The first time was amazing and this time , since we knew what to expect, it was only great. We started off sharing an order of Conch Fritters and we then both ordered the catch of the day, Wahoo. It was really really good . Our waiter, Marlon , provided great service... More

We had not eaten here in a few years, and the restaurant has experienced some minor physical changes in that time, but the food is still excellent. We joined a group of our friends to dinner here, and everyone enjoyed his/her meal. Once again, I had salmon and my husband had grouper, and we were delighted with the huge portions.... More

The food is pretty good and the service was great... but this place is all about the view and it is well worth it. Definitely time your visit with the sunset. (6:30p reservation for us was perfect).

This is a gem of a restaurant. Great fresh seafood, perfectly prepared and presented. The restaurant is built on pilings in the ocean. We were there at 7:30pm to see the full sunset.

The staff is very friendly and welcoming. The restaurant is on a dock in a small picturesque cove with a spectacular view of Aruban sunsets. I had the grilled shrimp with cognac sauce, my husband had the seafood brochettes with Asian glaze and my mom had the Boursin and apple stuffed tenderloin. We cleaned our plates! My husband even ate... More
