We have visited Wacky Wahoo numerous times, always to receive great food, attentive service, and fresh fish. You will need reservations, as their dining area is quite small, but it is worth the effort and planning. If you are going during the high season, you might want to make your reservations prior to your arrival. The portions are generous, the black bean soup wonderful, and every selection perfect. We always dine there several times during our visits to Aruba. Always a great meal. Enjoyed the "shrimp in paper" during our latest trip. A bit noisy at times, but that is part of the atmosphere. Dressy-casual attire. Always an enjoyable evening.

We go to the island every year and have seen this place advertised, but have never gone. Perhaps subconsciously we didn't want to go to a restaurant that was "Wacky" Big mistake on our part as we finally went and it was one of the best meals we have ever had on the island during our last 15 annual trips. There is nothing wacky about this place. It's not big, about 12-15 tables so I would suggest reservations. The food was outstanding!!!!!. We had wonderful Wahoo and some had wonderful grouper that was cooked PERFECTLY!!!! The sides were genuine Aruban sides of fried plantains, palenta and Pan Bati. We will be back next year, perhaps twice!!! This restaurant is an easy walk from the High Rise area and is one of the best on the island!!!

Cozy little place, friendly service and the best and freshest fish we had on our two week trip to Aruba recently. We had dinner there on two different nights and would've eaten there again if we'd had more time.
We learned that they catch their own fish daily, just hours to serving. Awesome little place! Now our favorite on the island.

This is the place to eat if you are looking for the catch of the day. Harold prepares fish like no other place on the island. Have been eating his fish since the Sunday fish fry/ bbq at the Haducuri fishing dock years ago. He now has a restaurant that is not to be missed when visiting Aruba. Portions are huge!!

the food we all had was great. good portions of food, good wine pours and good service. worth the trip but don't expect to hear everyone at the table. small storefront that is very noisy when full. but still worth the trip since the food is SOOOO good.
