Salmon salad and grouper salad were excellent, and not greasy like some other restaurants along the beach. Nice views from the pier.

We stayed at Radisson July 2013 and saw Bugaloe but never ate there because we had a package at Radisson where breakfast and lunch was included. After hearing about Bugaloe from other guests and reading positive Trip Advisor reviews, we decided to try for lunch during our return to Aruba and stay at the Radisson this week.

The nachos, grouper sandwiches, and curly fries were very good. I enjoyed the strawberry shortcake mixed drink too.

The service was excellent. Yes, there were slow times as previous reviews mentioned but the wait was not bothersome and you could clearly see whenever we waited that the servers were waiting on other tables because Bugaloe was very busy. I wouldn't agree with the previous reviewers making negative comments about service because how could you complain when you have such an incredible view to take in while waiting?

We would highly recommend Bugaloe for sandwiches, appetizers, and drinks. A great casual place with a great beach setting, would be a great place to choose for happy hour, and/ or if you were looking to take a break from the sun and have a meal/ snack and drinks.We stayed at Radisson July 2013 and saw Bugaloe but never ate there because we had a package at Radisson where breakfast and lunch was included.

After a tour of Aruba we went to this restaurant. Very busy, but was served quickly. Restaurant is located on the water, all outside feel. Water sports and beach are right there, and can quickly do water sports after eating. There is also a store. The food was good and had a good selection . They had wraps, hoagies, and several kinds of appetizers, the Grouper Ceviche was really good! The bar is huge and they serve about everything you can imagine. Has a party feel to it, but was fine with bringing the kids.

The best and freshly caught grilled fish sandwich in the world!!! Fun and always friendly waitstaff. Bugaloe is at the end of a short pier. Spectacular view anywhere in the restaurant/bar anytime of day. Aruban bands play a variety of good music. A must see when in Aruba.

I cannot say enough about this place! Ate lunch here every day while staying at the Radisson with husband and 2 teens. Gilligan's at the Radisson was DOUBLE in price. We miss this place already. The view is amazing and food is good and plenty of variety! If you like "fruity" drinks try the namesake, Bugaloe. It's delicious! We cannot wait to go back!!
