“A romantic dinner for two”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

We have visited Pincho Grill every year for 9 years. It never disappoints. Annabella runs a great restaurant. Good value for money, wonderful setting, great hospitality, highly recommended. Only criticism, the service should wait until all guests finish eating before clearing the table. This is correct etiquette.

“A nice romantic dinner on the Pier!”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

My husband and I went to Pinchos our first night in Aruba – it was an easy 20 minute walk from our hotel along the main road. Several friends had recommended the restaurant for its food and romantic beach ambiance. It seemed easy to get a reservation the day of (although that could have been our Renaissance concierge hooking us up) and we were seated at a two top on the pier itself, overlooking the main restaurant and the water. Although it got a bit breezy, it was very romantic and relaxing, with live music playing in the background. Our waitress, Jennifer, was friendly and attentive. We ordered a great two-bite tuna tartare dish as our appetizer along with a delicious sesame cucumber salad. For entrees, I ordered the mango margarita shrimp which was shrimp on a skewer served with a flavorful yet light mango sauce. I got mashed potatoes on the side, which I think was a mistake because the seafood was supposed to come with rice, but nonetheless, they were very fresh and delicious. My husband ordered the special of the day: Grilled Wahoo. It was good and served with really tasty coconut jasmine rice. For dessert, we ordered a Peanut Butter pie and a Snickers pie. Although they were also good, it tasted more like a pre-made pie ordered from a bakery than something homemade. The pricing was a little expensive but we had also ordered a bottle of wine. Overall, we would definitely go here again and recommend it to couples who are looking for a nice romantic dining experience at a good seafood/steak restaurant in Aruba.

“Beautiful setting. Yummy food”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

This restaurant is right out side of town heading to the airport. This was our second visit. It met all our good high expectations. My husband had the grouper and daughter had the shrimp. Loved the carmel cheesecake. It was raining when were were there and we did not get wet.

“A fine meal at a lovely spot”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

This may be the most beautiful spot for dinner one could imagine. Perched on a pier, 200 feet out into the ocean, covered in a white sail-cloth tent, Pinchos is as close to dining at sea that one can come without getting aboard a yacht.

“Great location! Went there for dinner at sunset, and it was beautiful!”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

Our server - Jennifer - was a joy to talk with, and was very attentive. The food was very good - not fantastic, but good.
We were staying downtown and were able to walk to the restaurant. Maybe 1/2 mile walk, but pleasant.
