We went to Wacky wahoo for the first time when we were in Aruba 2 years ago. We enjoyed it so much that we made reservations for two nights during this trip. It didn't disappoint. Both nights' meals were amazing. This is my favorite restaurant! I tried barracuda for the first time pan fried and grouper the second night. Make... More

The atmosphere is simple and small, but you will not find better seafood. It is family friendly. Make sure to get a reservation when you first arrive. It is so popular.

Don't be fooled by the name, Wacky Wahoo. It sounds like a tourist trap, but it is an excellent restaurant. The food is delicious and the service attentive. Pricing is moderate for fine dining. The restaurant is small, only about fourteen tables. So, you must call for reservations. The fish is fresh caught and served that day. On the day... More

We had heard about Wacky Wahoo from trip advisor as well as new friends at Marriott Ocean Club in Aruba so we thought we would give a walk in a try as Angie the concierge had tried to secure a reservation. We arrived at 6 and asked if we could be seated. The host and the bartender Izra both asked... More

This is a small restaurant with a fun and eclectic vibe. I ordered one of the daily specials. The fish and lobster were delicious and paired with fresh veggies, plantains and little garlic bread triangles. Very creative combination and presentation. Reservations recommended.

This was by far the best grouper we had on the island (and we ordered grouper at many other places). The appetizer of conch and calamari was also delicious as were the sides. For desert we ordered cashew cake, which was very good, but unexpectedly came with exquisite raspberry ice cream. Again, best meal we had all week. Be sure... More

My husband and I went here because of all the great reviews we saw. It did not disappoint us. It is a little off the beaten path but the food was ample and great. We had never eaten barracuda. We tried it and lived it.

After reading all of the reviews I was very excited to try Wacky Wahoos. The only reservation time we could get was 5:30 ...a little early but we wanted to try so we took it. I was disappointed with their reservation system as you have a small window of time to call everyday and even then they don't always answer... More
