This restaurant always makes the list to dine when we visit Aruba annually. I would recommend making reservations weeks in advance because it books up quickly. The service is consistently good. We were introduced to barracuda by the waiter a few years back and it's a hidden gem. I enjoyed the special of the night this year, grouper topped with... More

If your going to Aruba on your next trip, and you like fish, you need to go to Wacky Wahoo's. But you need to make a reservation. My husband and I went there for the first time and he had Chef's selection Grouper with shrimp and scallops, and I had Catch of the Day, Baracuda served with lobster. It was... More

Definitely a busy place, and I can tell you that the host was not a friendly man he seem very frazzled because of how busy they are but we gave it a chance. We started with the king crab and corn chowder and the calamari and conch appetizer. They both were very very good. But the entrees were outstanding. I... More

My wife and I went here on November 29. We enjoyed our meal but we were not captured by all the hype of how outstanding this place is spoken about. We did enjoy our meal, my wife had Fire Cracker Shrimp which were good. I had the Caribbean lobster tail which was also good. The service was polite and attentive.... More

One of our favorite restaurants in Aruba, but too many people know this also, so be sure to make reservations as soon as you hit town...or call from home! The food is excellent, freshest seafood around, & the staff is pleasant & accommodating.

Reservations are suggested unless you have lots of time! We went without them for 2, and learned our folly sitting at the bar for almost an hour! This was recommended to us and we went for the soup and special preparations of the catches of the day! We were happy with most of the meal, and I'm sure if I... More

Make sure you call for reservations - the restaurant has a waiting list. We went twice & had an awesome meal both times. I would highly recommend it to anyone.

We have been to Wacky Wahoo a number of times over the past several years. Each year, we make it a point to come back. This year our meal was as good as always. I ordered a spicy shrimp dish that was spectacular. My wife had a pan seared grouper that was equally tasty. Overall, it was one of my... More

We were in Aruba six days and tried several restaurants, this is one we will return too. Great food, service, and an all around favorite. Only reason not to recommend is not sure I want to wait next time we go back.
