We visited Pinchos as a family and it was a pleasant surprise. The location superb. The service was 5 star. Ask for Raul. He was great with suggestions and making sure the experience was 5 Star. The food was above average. Overall - we will visit again and we recommend Pinchos as a must stop when on Aruba.

There are not enough stars to give this wonderful restaurant, that is out on a pier in the water. We went back a second time because the food and service were so magnificent and amazing! Our waiter, Gerson was incredible and so thoughtful. His sister, Sherry is also great! Wish we could have eaten there 5 times each day!

Hidden behind the Aruba Surfiside Marina on a gorgeous pier is the one restaurant my wife and I have made sure to visit on each of our 8 trips to Aruba over the past few years. Pinchos is consistently excellent. Chef Erwin has a great menu with some dishes that are sure to please everyone. From the looks of it Kids dishes have been added to the menu. All the food is prepared on grills on the pier that has a stunning view of the sunsets. Steaks, seafood, chicken - you can't go wrong. Additionally the bar makes some great drinks and the prices are very reasonable. Our last visit we had a very friendly server named Gerson who made our favorite dining spot even more enjoyable. It's nice when your server has some personality! Anabela the owner is always on hand checking in with the patrons. Overall - I always highly recommend Pinchos to friends, not for any super high gourmet cuisine. But for the total package the restaurant brings to the outdoor dining experience.

My husband and I went here for our anniversary and had excellent service! Raul was our server and he was very attentive! We had told him that we would not be ordering appetizers but would order dessert. When we were finished with our meal he didn't bring us a menu so we could order dessert. But, a few minutes later he came with a piece of cake with a sparkler on top of it! He thought we might like this dessert and he was correct! It was wonderful! This restaurant is the BEST on the island, by far our favorite! The other thing that we really liked was that we were there for almost two hours and they never made us feel like we needed to leave so they could turn over the table!

Cannot say enough about this restaurant and our server, Raul!
