My husband and I had dinner at Pinchos on our last night Everything was wonderful. The view and setting are spectacular! I had the catch of day red snapper and my husband at the cowboy pincho. Both were great choices. His meal came with leak...mashed potatoes. He loved them so much, he refused to share. The candied carrots were fantastic. It's tough to get a reservation to see the sunset. The bar is first come, first serve and that worked out great for us. We were the only people at the bar and we had the best view!More

The atmosphere was great, the water was lite blue and you could see some fish around you but the food was not the same. We all ordered the twin lobster tail, 4 of us had fish and shrimp in there meal to. It was ok...if you dont know good seafood, it had more of a rubbery dry taste. We made it work with the sauces. The drink mixes were made perfect. It was a one time visit but we would not go again as we want good seafood.More

Observation that gives you a hint - more people dressed up fancy at dinner here than any other place we've gone so far. I think that tells you a bit about the place. Pinchos is a great location - on a pier built over the...water - sunsets to die for. So - strong first impression. Service was exceptional (shout out to you, Ronald) - professional and attentive. The food was very good. Our oldest of three kids (19 - it was her birthday dinner) had the coconut shrimp appetizer and then the beef tenderloin. She loved both and our 17 year old son who loves meat concurred after tasting her tenderloin. He had the wedge salad, which was good, and the skewer of mixed meats. Frankly, I forget to ask him how that was but every single thing was gone on his plate - so I'm chalking that up to a positive. My wife had the ceviche appetizer, which was good - above average ceviche. She then had the tuna appetizer for her main. The flavors were fantastic, as was the piece of tuna, but the "medium rare" preparation should have been rare. It was a bit overdone. I had the Octopus appetizer. It says charred and served with basil olive oil. I expected it to be warm. The potatoes it was served with were ice cold - as if they were in refrigerator just minutes earlier. The octopus was less than lukewarm. It wasn't clear if this was a cold dish or warm dish - I had ice cold and barely warm. Octopus was kind of tough and devoid of flavor. Not a winning dish. My main course was the Snapper special - great piece of snapper - overdone and tough, but the flavors were good. Many more positives than negatives. My family loved it. We had four desserts that were all great - black and white cake, guava cheesecake, carrot cake (I didn't try that one as it disappeared quickly) and key lime pie (excellent). Great event. Happy 19th to our daughter. Very memorable. We will be back to Pincho's.More

We loved, loved, loved pinchos!!!! The restaurant is built on a pier, in the middle of the Caribbean sea, so your 360 view is all water and sunset (if you go at that hour). You cannot beat the ambiance, best in Aruba. Our server’s name...was Juan Pablo and he was the best!! Helpful, kind, and entertaining. He even volunteered to take photos of our family at sunset. The food is outstanding!! All and all, we are so happy we came. Thank you Juan Pablo and pinchos!More

The food was outstanding and we enjoyed every single bite! The view of the ocean and beach were fantastic! It is best to arrive about thirty minutes before seeing a beautiful sunset. It is also advised to make reservations.

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.
