Bungaloe was one of the first places I visited on the island. They have a fantastic happy hour! Make sure to order a mojito! I also enjoyed their nachos. It's a great spot to have a bite to eat & a few drinks. You can't get a better view anywhere else on the island.

Place is very authentic, run by dutch people. They play 80's music. We went there for drinks and dinner. They have daily specials. Mondays is fish day. Try the Grilled Mahi or whole Red Snapper, taste is excellent!

Right on the water this open air bar has a lively atmosphere and live music - as well as cold drinks that are a must with that wonderful Aruba sun!

Nestled between the Rio and Hilton on the pier, this is a super spot. Whether you just want to hide from the sun and have a few cocktails, have a quick snack or any other meal, this is a convenient stop with plenty of variety on the menu and all reasonable priced. Out server was exceptional with lots of energy... More

Having lunch on a pier jutting out onto Palm Beach was a beautiful beach break. Good food and friendly service. I enjoyed a grouper salad (surprised how delicious the grouper was with salad greens and fresh veggies)! Good stuff!

So we bailed. No idea why a small bar can't offer service to a new customer. 6pm seems like a time when you would have full staff, but the place felt like a cheesy spring break bar. We sat for 20 minutes while the tables around us were addressed and we were ignored.

So this place is literally on the water still king out a pier right on one of the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean...so that gives it 3 stars right away for convenience to our resort and view. The other star is that the prices are reasonable for Aruba a and they have good food with a decent happy hour.... More

This is the perfect little bar set out on a pier. You feel like you are sitting out in the ocean. While I can't attest to the food because we didn't eat, I can tell you that night time at the Bugaloe was hands down some of the best entertainment we had on the trip. An awesome band that played...
