“Best atmosphere around”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2013

If you want to talk about location, this is it. Right at the end of a pier on Eagle Beach. Really good food at a good price. Nightly entertainment was excellent. Try the ceviche and also the goat cheese salad.

“Our Lunch & Drink Special Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2013

After the first two days, Bugaloe's became our go-to place for lunch & daily drink specials! The staff were all friendly & were always working hard. The food was good & a great value. The drink specials allowed us to try all sorts of "island combinations". The atmosphere is great -open air, casual & lively. Nachos were probably the favorite thing we ordered but the $5 sloppy joe with fries was probably the best value (& it was tasty though messy to eat).

“Bar fare with an incredible view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2013

Let's be honest, you don't go here for the food. While the grouper civeche, wraps, sandwiches and the standard fried fare is good, it's the open air, casual atmosphere that makes this a great little bar. Walk right in wearing your swimsuit, with bare feet, pull up a stool and enjoy the view. Try the daily punch or any one of their many mixed drinks. If you choose an exterior deck seat, choose one at the end as there are large boats (large enough to block your view) loading and unloading passengers throughout the day. Note again this is open air and on a pier: there will be wildlife, smoking and there are no rails for small children. Service is slow, but what's your hurry?

“Fun Bar on the Pier Overlooking the Caribbean Sea”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2013

This place is awesome! So casual and friendly. You can just walk up off the beach for some shade and cool drinks and even a sandwich or appetizer. It's all open-air with the turquoise ocean right there and the tropical breeze to cool you.

“Nice view, average food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2013

We went to Bungaloe for lunch three times during our week stay in Aruba. The food is reasonably priced but nothing special - just wraps, salads, fried food etc... It is a nice alternative to the hotel beach bars that can be pretty expensive. The location can't be beat, it is on the edge of a pier on Palm Beach. If anything, come here for a drink and enjoy the view.
