“Excellent Dinner”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

This was our favorite all around dining experience of our recent trip. My husband and I had reservations for sunset and were seated at a nice table at the front corner of the pier. Raul, our server, was outstanding! He remembered our names all evening long, made excellent menu recommendations and was on top of everything from the beginning to the end of our meal. We enjoyed the best sangria we've had in a long time. Started with the conch fritters... amazing! For entrees, we shared the seafood skewer with rice and the bbq mixed skewer with mashed potatoes & both came with mixed veggies....delicious. Extremely happy with the service, setting and food & drink. Definitely will return to Pinchos on our next trip to Aruba!

We have been going to Pinchos for the past three years and every year we look forward to it and again this year we were not disappointed. Just love the Sunset seating.

“Lovely for cocktails but don't bother to eat here”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

Although this restaurant is very nicely situated, overlooking the Caribbean sea and the boats anchored there, the overall service is near to lousy and pretty unfriendly. Although the restaurant is totally empty and you only come there for a cocktail, don't expect to be allowed to sit on a table. You may only sit on the bar whether you like it or not. The cocktails are all right and sometimes really good but don't go for food. It is expensive the quality is just bad and the service below any standards. There are far better restaurants to visit on Aruba with an equally nice view and much more friendly service.

“Amazing Views, Wonderful Meal”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

We returned to Pinchos for the second time Feb. 2, 2013. We were seated right on time, facing a spectacular view of the sunset over the water. Our server was a delightful young man named Jerson. He was very warm and friendly, and did an outstanding job throughout the night. We had Panseared Caribbean Grouper and Margarita Shrimp. Both were fresh and delicious. For desert, we shared a piece of Chocolate Banana Cake, which was my favorite desert during our two week stay in Aruba. Pinchos is one of my favorite restaurants on the island. We loved it as much as we did the first time we were there. It has become one of the restaurants that we feel we must visit each time we are in Aruba.

“Too bad it was Windy”
Reviewed March 18, 2013 via mobile

Had dinner there last week, had heard lots of good reviews about this place. We had a reservation on a particularly windy and had a table right at water's edge. It was somewhat unpleasant (thank goodness for warm breezes) We had cocktails which were nothing special. The specials that nite included grouper and red snapper. The grouper was well prepared with a delicious sauce of garlic and herbs. While on the other hand the red snapper although it was a large portion and prepared nicely was really just bland. We had had appetizers, conch fritters,salads, coconut shrimp all of which were just average. Not sure we'll be back but it was a beautiful setting (oh by the way it's near the airport so planes do land during dinner.)
