Everyone looks for a "foodie" review before we take a chance on a "new" dining experience. Reality, the absolute best finds are those which others have yet to discover. Pinchos is a destination not to be missed.

We go every year, sometimes twice. This floating dock restaurant is the ideal place to watch the sunset and have a fantastic meal. The staff is attentive and friendly, the view is exceptional and food is delicious. If you don't feel like you are on vacation having dinner and listening to music at Pinchos then check your pulse! A must... More

Just like other visitors to Aruba, Pinchos is our number one or two choice to dine. This time, service was disappointing and our table, initially, at the very entrance, you could feel the floor and table shaking every time someone walked by. They were very nice to give us a better one more inside. Food this time was average compared... More

Pinchos was by far my favorite meal in Aruba. The food was delicious, the service was great (shoutout to Mateus), and the ambiance couldn't be better. It was definitely worth the 20-minute cab ride and 8:30pm reservation time. For such an incredible restaurant, it's a wonder the prices are so reasonable. I would definitely return to Pinchos again and again!

We were in Aruba with a group and having been at Pinchos before we wanted to take them here since we love it so much. The hotel set up a reservation for 14 of us and our table was all set at our arrival. The server was excellent and was on point with everything. She handled our large group perfectly.... More

Pincho's is by far our favorite restaurant on the island, in ambiance, food and service. The restaurant is on a beautiful pier, an ideal place to watch the sunset. My food was mouth-wateringly delicious. I had the grilled shrimp which were cooked to perfection - so juicy! The wait staff were excellent as well. One waiter, Matos, saw me dancing... More

Me and my husband had dinner there.i would begin telling how much Arabian way of going is complicated:we didn't have a reservation and the girl at the entrance told us very sufficiently we could have eaten our meals at the counter because everything was fully booked(no idea what time all the crowd was coming because when we left 2 hours...
