Great dinner for our party of 10. Sat on the beach which was lovely. Several of us had their specialty Pinchos - meat skewers and one had the all you can eat BBQ buffet. Service was great but we really loved being outside on the beach. Next door to the Aruba Surf Club so easy to get to if you are staying at the Marriott.

This restaurant was close to our hotel. We loved the location on the beach and thought we would give it a try. Food and service were both good. We would go again.

Casual and fun on the beach. Pincho was excellent- skewered beef and veggies on the grill with sauces, good burgers too.

The wait staff was very friendly and welcoming. We enjoyed eating with our toes in the sand while listening to live music. We were a family of five with children ages 16,13 and 8. The kids menu was very good for our crew. One adult ordered the filet and it was more like a sirloin steak. The fish and salads were very good.

Everything was overly seasoned (SALTY, and I tend to salt my food), Ceviche was HOT/SPICY (not normally served that way) and the dulce de leche was essentially a flat piece of ginger bread with whipped cream on top (OK but just not what I expected).

The best thing is obviously the location. You can’t beat sitting with your feet in the sand of Palm Beach while eating dinner. The food was average at best but edible and plenty of it. I had the beef kabob and it was a bit tough. The seafood chowder was very good. My wife had filet and was disappointed. It looked more like a ribeye to us.

Super locatie en lekker eten tegen een betaalbare prijs. Wanneer je om 0630PM reserveert zie je meteen de prachtige zonsondergang. Persoonlijk vind ik het leukst om op het strand te zitten dan onder de grote palapa. Ook ideaal om met kinderen naar toe te gaan.

Food very basic, not that flavorful and expensive.
Margarita tasted like it came from a mix. Rice unseasoned, vegetable mix overvooked. Fajitas bland.
Great party location on the beach but the food and drink did not live up to the location.
Disregard the map pin on the open table app. The restaurant is on the beach next to the northern end of the Holiday Inn.

Great location! We sat at a table on the beach. The server was prompt and everyone loved their meals. The Pinchos weren’t enough food for my older son but the fajitas were enough for 2 people.

Had a Reservation on New Year eve for 4 (which I know is a very busy night) had to give a 30.00 per person garentee on my credit card if I no showed. We got there a little early for our 9pm reservation, the hosted said to go to bar she would let us know when our table was available. After about 30 min we went back to hostage and she said she gave our table away because she said our name and we did not respond( she never left her stand just yelled our name even know she knew we were going to be at the bar area. Then they threw a table up right next to the kitchen area( very busy area) we got a very very rude waiter who took our order then in about an hour came over and said sorry he forgot to put in our food order so it will be awhile longer reluctantly gave a free glass of wine for his screw up ( big deal)could go on and on but In the end the surf and turf was cold and the meal just sucked!! This restaurant is only good for drinks at the bar not dinner

Stopped in for dinner the other night. Since we had reservations, we got a table on the beach which was nice. Tried the Pinchos; my wife had chicken and I had beef. They were tasty, but not hot. The meat was luke warm, as were my veggies. The server was OK, friendly but not overly attentive. He asked if we wanted drinks and I motioned to my wife. She said "I'll start with a water" and off he went; didn't even ask if I wanted anything to drink. OK, no problem; I'll drink back in the room. Prices are par for the course for the island.

They did not seem to know we had a reservation with Open Table. Then someone told us they do not check it until the evening. Why are we allowed to make a reservation if they will not honor it?

It is a challenge to find the place. It is on the beach which is amazing. The food was so so. Fish undercooked and had to be sent back. The shrimp skewer was dry and not many veggies.

Overall great ambiance but food needs major improvement.
