“Nice place with amazing view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2014 via mobile

The title says everything: the place is nice, informal and colorful with an amazing view.
The food and the drinks are good and not expensive (during the happy hour you can have a mojito for 4,5$ and other cocktails for 3,5$).
Of course is not gourmet food, but who goes to a pier on a beach for gourmet food?

“All money is green....”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2014

My husband and I went there yesterday and although it's a cute little Pier bar the service was not the best. The waiter acted very passive and was not even close to being welcoming. Didn't think too much of it, everyone has an off day. Today we went back to get a drink and possibly eat at the bar. At least three of the waitstaff walked past us several times without the slightest bit of acknowledgement. After a wait we both looked at each other and could feel the energy was not good. A few minutes later, another patron walked right up tho the bar and the waitress immediately turned around and asked if she could HELP him. At this point my husband had to loudly say "excuse me, we've been waiting to be helped". At that point we got an "I know, I know" and had some menus placed in front of us. We paid for our drinks and left without ordering food. The third slap in the face was that this same waitress decided to go over to another server and say something to him, and he turned around, looked at us and shook his head. Look, we are not Spring chickens! We know when we are being treated like crap. Good thing everyone else at the Raddison and surrounding restaurants have been nothing but nice and friendly. Congrats, you all have managed to lose great tippers and recommendations to our friends that are traveling here in a few weeks. I will also make sure my father (who comes to Aruba annually) knows he will get the second class citizen treatment so don't bother wasting his money. Shame on you...your poor attitudes and obvious preferential/prejudicial treatment of customers is despicable. Never again..

“So much fun we went back 5 more times!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2014

What can you say about a place that you find an EXCUSE to go to just because? Every day after our first visit on July 4th, we found a reason to conveniently be walking by around the time where we were hungry or thirsty.
Every day there is a different drink special which always managed to be something tasty & fun. My husband & I could not get enough of the curly fries, & everything else we tried, from the grouper wrap to the burgers to the chicken quesadilla, were tasty & fresh. The service was casual & friendly, & the bartenders & servers always had a smile on their faces. We went there to listen to some of the local bands who played great dancing music, & even on those "slow nights," Bugaloe was a fun time. We high recommend you go enjoy this great spot.

“Burgers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2014 via mobile

We had burger cravings after a day at the beach so headed over to bugaloe. It was an excellent choice, burger meat was tender and delicious, menu is very reasonably prices too. The pina colada was extremely tasty and refreshing. We were there around 4pm, so it was mostly empty, few people at the bar. The birds didn't attack our food which we were a bit worried about when we arrived there and saw the birds flying about (we did throw them some bits however :) )
All in all, delicious burgers and ceviche for starters. Recommended.
