Although the restaurant is small and requires a reservation, it is worth it. If you want fresh seafood, then this is the place to go. There were 3 specials available plus the catch of the day (4 types of fish) cooked 4 different ways. I had the barracuda pan fried, our friends had grouper & Mahi Mahi with shrimp and... More

The reviews don't lie. This un-intimidating restaurant had fabulous service and food. Reservations are required, but worth it. From appetizers to dinner to dessert, we were wowed by each course. Definitely a place to factor into your trip!

We all had the wahoo and lobster special. It was great. So much food on the plate. None of us could finish our whole plate even though we wanted too. Sautéed calamari appetizer was very delicious and I definitely recommend. Make sure you make reservations.

Even a novice will taste the freshest of the ample sized seafood meals at Wacky's. The catch of the day, any way you want it with plenty of accompaniments and add ons. Do not miss this experience for you taste buds.

A friend highly recommended Wacky Wahoos before our trip but said it was important to make reservations since they are a small place. The first thing I did when I arrived was call but I wasn't able to reach them. After the 4th attempt on multiple nights we decided to just try our luck and show up. The place was... More

We had reservations for dinner as was suggested by an island resident. Arrived and the place was "packed" - our table was waiting and we were seated immediately. We had the grouper (catch of the day) and frankly it was probably one of the best meals we have ever had. The restaurant is noisy but the food and service was... More

This was our favorite dining experience in Aruba! After being disappointed by some of the highly regarded restaurants in the area, we didn't know what to expect with Wacky Wahoo's. They open for dinner at 5:30. We got there around 5:45 on Friday and miraculously got a table without a reservation. I highly recommend you reserve a table, the restaurant... More

We had super high hopes for this restaurant! Everything we had read said it was so amazing, but everything we had was just ok. Very small place and almost impossible to get into. Food was ok but I could take it or leave it. We had better seafood elsewhere.

We had done a little bit of research before arriving on the island and found that this place had excellent reviews. Then our hotel (Bucuti & Tara) also recommended this place. It's a bit difficult to get a reservation on the day for this place, but our hotel managed to book us in two days later. We were happy to... More

This place came recommend, but so did many others. However, Wacky Wahoo's blew them all out of the water (pun intended). The opening bread was great, the crab and corn quesadilla was terrific, the grouper special was superb, and the cashew cake was PHENOMENAL!
