This casual yet chic Grill & Bar in its 9th year of operation is situated on a private pier at the Surfside Marina. Pinchos has been acclaimed by numerous international newspapers and magazines, as having one of the most romantic atmospheres on the island. Pinchos Grill & Bar is so romantic that it was featured on ABC’s The Bachelor . This, expertly paired with quality marinated grilled food, has made this small Grill one of the preferred restaurants on the island. Try one of the popular dishes, such as the Dark Rum Infused Blue Cheese Fillet Mignon or the Pan Seared Caribbean Grouper served with an Apricot & Ginger Sauce. If you are planning a special group celebration, Pinchos is also available for that “one of a kind” group event.

    Can't understand why this page doesn't allow Me to give Pincho's 5 stars!!! The place, the atmosphere, the staff and the owner are the best in the island.

    Love Pinchos! It's a must whenever in Aruba! Great food and awesome view!

    Outstanding! My wife and I travel a lot and have eaten at countless restaurants but it was our first time in Aruba and wanted to have dinner near the water. Pinchos literally sits on a pier over the water. Since we had no reservation the hostess actually escorted us (a pleasant surprise) to the bar to sit while we waited . One drink later we were sitting at a table for two enjoying a romantic evening. Although the specials were announced after we read the menu, we chose the salmon and filet mignon which was prepared perfectly and was delicious. The staff was friendly and attentive. In our experience, I would highly recommend it to anyone.

    PInchos is one of our favorite restaurants in Aruba, we always make a point of eating there. Most everything was good, however I found the fish a bit over seasoned.

  • Pinchos Grill & Bar

    Definitely one of my favorite restaurants in Aruba. I recommend going at sundown because the sunset is so beautiful out on the beach. A definite must-see when you head to Aruba. I can't wait to go back

  • Pinchos Grill & Bar

    Great view- sits out on pier over the water- excellent view of the sunset. Nice cocktail menu. Food was not the best I've had on the island but still very, very good and reasonably priced by Aruba standards. Matos, our waiter, made the experience that much more enjoyable.

  • Pinchos Grill & Bar

    Great place to dine as you watch the sunset. The service was great and the owner was very nice. Make sure you make a reservation.

  • Pinchos Grill & Bar

    Unbeliveable!!! After listening to all the kudos and expecting a wonderful romantic evening we met cattle call treatment you wouldn't expect even at a 99! The specials were obviously prepared in advance so the guests could be served quickly and rushed out to make room for the next sitting. Our appetizers came before we had finished our before dinner drinks and our main course was served cold at the same time that our appetizers were cleared. They took the meals back when we complained but were out of the specials we had ordered ... At 6 PM!! The manager explained that they had a pace to keep up as a reason for this outrageously poor service. Definitely not a class operation and the food was poorly prepared to add insult to injury. The deck and view are nice but don't expect a nice romantic evening. You will be very dissapointed.

    Great spot. Atmosphere is better than the food but the food is good just not great. We go at least once every year and love it.

  • Pinchos Grill & Bar

    Had a wonderful anniversary sunset dinner with fantastic waiters and great cook

  • Pinchos Grill & Bar

    Great experience. We had made no reservations and despite it being fairly busy, the manager arranged us a nice table by the waterside. Foodwise it was lovely. I had the catch of the day, a good portion of swordfish with a creamy lemon garlic sauce. My husband had a big joint of angus tenderloin, rare, done perfectly. My daughter had delicious fishcakes as a starter, not greasy but very tasty. For the Main she had a skewer with different sorts of meat, which was decent! Considering the small kitchen, the Staff is doing a great job.

  • Pinchos Grill & Bar

    This is my favorite restaurant in Aruba. Food is great, service is amazing, and the view is unbeatable. I will continue to go here year after year, as I have my past three trips.

  • Pinchos Grill & Bar

    It's a good restaurant but overpriced. I spent 100 bucks 2 cups of Sangria (I recommend that) and 2 plates (1 each person).
