“DK 2/28”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

Food is excellent , have eaten several times and feel it is the best we have had in Aruba. Pricing is very fair. Looking forward to next years visit. Make reservations way ahead restaurant is very small.

“Best and freshest fish you can get”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

We just had outstanding dinner entrees at Wacky Wahoo - pan fried Wahoo and pan fried Grouper. This is a cozy little place with great food and great service. The people who work here are really pleasant and make you feel very welcome, and happy to be of service. The rice, vegetables, corn bread and plantain that are served with the "catch of the day" were delicious. We return to Wacky Wahoo every year we come to Aruba and are always satisfied with our meal. I would recommend having at least one dinner here on your visit to Aruba and you can be assured of a great dinner.

We had the ceviche, lobster and conch, and grouper. Followed by coconut flan. All were superb. he drinks were generous, and not overpriced. Our overall impression was - we already plan to go again this trip.

“Wacky Wahoo-- Great Food”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

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.

“Best Meal of our Week!!!!”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

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!!!
