My mom and I found out about this place from our airport taxi driver and it was hands-down our best dining experience. The location could not have been more stunning as you sit on a dock in the water watching the sun go down. Each dish was incredible, one after the next with a delicate balance of flavors that left...

We had anticipated a good time after reading the reviews. We understood you might need reservations for tables but gave it a shot, sit at the bar and eat. Took us at least 15 minutes to get a drink at the bar and not all the tables were full. The couple next to us at the bar warned us, over... More

You have an amazing view and are able to see the cruise boats set sail if you are there at the right time. There is always the planes coming in and out which is... More

Enjoyed appetizers, cocktails and sangria one night at the bar area, while watching the planes take off and land and cruise ships and sailboats in the downtown harbor. Enjoyed it so much we decided to come back with our friends for another night for supper.(Reservations were required). It's a wonderful place to watch the sunset right on a pier on... More

Pincho's was a very good dining experience as everything is grilled and delicious. The waitstaff was attentive and Joann tried very hard to make the dining experience more enjoyable.

The setting is beautiful.. right on the water. The food is top notch but it was truly our server Joanne who made this the most memorable dining experience of our seven dinners during our week in Aruba. She is knowledgable, funny, personable and attentive.

If you are looking for a beautiful place on the water with great food and great service in Aruba, this is NOT the place. The food is over cooked, the service is canned and the prices are way to high. My wife and I dine all over the world and love great food and better service. Save your money!

The service and food were top notch for our evening at Pincho's. The cocktails were great and we enjoyed sushi, the famous shrimp tree, meats, and excellent desserts, all served by pleasant, attentive waiters - especially Marlon. We will tell any friends going to Aruba that this is a must and we'll go again on our next visit!
