Pinchos is on a pier near the Surfside Marina. Reservations are a must because seating is limited. Romantic and sunset view. A shared appetizer of Seared Ahi Tuna was perfect. One seared grouper and one sear sword fish dish were both outstanding. Another HIT in Aruba!

If you're looking for a marvelous view and good food, this is your place. If you care whatsoever about service, you'd better go somewhere else - something is seriously wrong here! We had a total of 3 different severs. The first 2 tried way too hard to be funny & friendly but just came off as insincere and overdone. We... More

Had a lovely dinner here. Atmosphere eating on pier outside watching sunset was incredible. Service from the time we sat down was top notch. Rudy was our main server but honestly we had no less than 3 other people helping us and always asking if everything was to our satisfaction. Dinner took a little longer than some restraints but we...

There is much to LOVE about this place--a small open air, "Gillegan's island" type hut set on a secluded pier over crystal clear blue water. Sunsets are amazing! Reservations a must due to limited space but dinner seating at the bar is on a first come-first serve basis. Wait staff are friendly if a bit inattentive when busy. Decent cocktails.... More

My wife and I arrived at 6:20pm without any reservation at Pinchos. Thanks to mr Jose who helped us out. Had the most amazing dinner at Pincho's. Every seat is the best seat in the house to watch the sunset. Had 2 bottles of wine, ordered the Rib Eye with Argentinian salsa verde and coconut rice....AMAZING! The best part is... More

This is a relatively small restaurant build on a wooden deck over the water with no sides. Great views and a wonderful breeze with entertainment some nights. Most everything is cooked over an open grill in the bar area with tables surrounding the bar on three sides. Highly recommend
