This restaurant mixes delicious, fresh seafood cooked to perfection, a beautiful view with seating on a dock over the water, and delightfully friendly staff that are very memorable! Our waitress Jenny was very sweet, taking pictures of us at sunset, and her service was excellent. Isabella, the owner, came to our table and asked if everything was excellent, which it was! We were there on a Friday night and there was live piano music, which added to the romantic atmosphere. Definitely our best dining experience on the island!

I recently went to Pinchos with my husband for a sunset dinner, based on the generally favorable reviews. I agree that the setting on the pier is quaint. The view is very nice, the service decent but we were disappointed with the food. The fish skewer tasted a bit rubbery and the chorizo promised on the mixed skewer was not chorizo. I'd recommend going for drinks at sunset and finding another restaurant for dinner.

Pinchos is one of our favorite restaurants and try to plan dinner there at least one evening during our vacation. After a beautiful day on the beach and watching the sunset from the De Palm Pier, we decided it was the perfect evening for Pinchos.

The restaurant is located in Oranjestad, a short drive from the high rise area. Drive on the main road through town towards the airport and it is on your right, look for the sign and the parking lot. You will walk though a small plaza out to a walkway that takes you to the pier it is located on.
This particular evening we were challenged with an "Election Rally" with music and dancing in the street and detoured and wove our way around the residential area to avoid this road block.

We ordered the Special of the Day which was the Grouper with rice and veggies. The fish was cooked perfectly and the entire meal was excellent! The atmosphere on the pier is beautiful and caught a glimpse of a cruise ship leaving in the distance. The pleasant breeze on this warm night was the perfect recipe for a beautiful and romantic dinner. Many thanks to Erik who assisted with dinner and wine selections--everything was perfect! We can't wait to return.

The restaurant is located on the water in downtown Oranjestad. Parking is right in front of the restarant. The location is perfect ot watch the sunset. Service was very good, friendly and knowledgeable staff. Food is quite good, mainly seafood. I had the Tuna Tataki as a starter which was delicious. They have a quite extensive winelist with lots of wines by the glass. Prices are are reasonable. Reservations are advisable, especially in the weekends.

After many reviews and a few personal reccomendations, we were really looking forward to our meal here. It wasn't awful but really wasn't great either. We both ordered fish and the grouper was almost rubbery. The atmosphere is incredible but it wasn't worth the taxi from Palm Beach to get there. Also going back we couldn't get a taxi and walked forever back to another hotel to get one.
