We first went to Bugaloe for lunch as I heard about their vegan options and we were not disappointed. Great place for lunch and cocktails. Very laid back, most people in their beach wear. A couple days later we decided to go back for happy...hour and dinner. The cocktails were great and the live music was fun, a great atmosphere, followed by sunset on the beach. Sadly though, nothing vegan on the main menu, apparently vegans don’t eat after 4pm. This was extremely disappointing and really quite odd since they clearly have vegan ingredients onsite to be able to include at least one dish on the main menu. I absolutely loved the happy hour in every other way but very sad about the lack of food options. Would have happily gone here every night had they had an option for food. I hope this changes for my next visit to Aruba!More

We were talked into walking to this place after a meal at Passions. It was a bit of a hike to get there and we almost bagged it twice. So glad we didnt. Such a Fun beach bar, right on the water. The band was...awesome (forget name, but, sounded alot like the Cranberries). Jenne was our server and she was awesome! We were ready to leave around 10...but decided to stay another hour after she informed us it was Happy Hour. Fun fun place. Definitely go if you want great music and great service. Love the staff here.More

Visited this bar a number of times during my 10 day trip to Aruba, always buzzy, always busy, good simple food and great selection of drinks and cocktails, all reasonably priced. Despite being busy could always get served promptly by the friendly, excellent staff. Definitely...would recommend a vist (or2), lovely setting, good music, always something on, results in a friendly, buzzy, inclusive atmosphere for all nationalities and age groups.More

We just went for drinks and dancing after out for dinner .Very good performance of live music, drinks and service were great, But the DJ , sucked , he couldn’t keep people on the dance floor if his life depended on it. People recommended songs...and he cut them short . One thing I’ll give him is that he knew how to clear a dance floor. We stayed as we had good company but I guess he didn’t realize if you keep the dance floor busy , the more customers drink. More businessMore

Great and fun bar, especially at sun down. Great atmosphere , with live music , but the food is terrible. I had what the call a BLT, impossible to eat. We also had tacos and a wrap, all terrible. Works as a great bar, but...not as a restaurant. Still, it is fun.More

Great location and atmosphere, but the food was disappointing to say the least. I order a grouper sandwich, which was the worst grouper I have ever had..I’m not even sure it was grouper. It was tough, in, and tasteless. The bread was two times the...size of the fish fillet. We would go back, but only for drinks. Very disappointed in our first dinner in Aruba.More

Just spent a few hours here . It was my birthday and I wanted somewhere close to where we were staying. We were not disappointed. The food was lovely and I can definitely recommend the fish basket. The singer who works there has a stunning...voice and can turn her voice to any requests. Happy hour was happy..... We left as the live band was starting up but they sounded great. If you're in that neck of the woods a visit is a must. The sunset from there is astounding .We will be going back for sure for a great time 😀More

Great little beach bar on a pier to that is the epitome of island vibes! Everything is first come, first serve, seating, which can be frustrating. Apparently they do take some reservations, but if you arrive without one, its first come-first serve. We waited quite...awhile to find a seat to eat, but enjoyed some drinks while listening to the live music. I cannot remember the woman's name that was singing, but she was amazing! We did eventually get a table and the food was fantastic. Will return for sure!More
