We only had to wait 10 minutes and we’re promptly seated at a waterside table. The view, service, food and sunset were excellent. No complaints, and would recommend. We even had a chance to order happy hour Mohitos which were delicious. All of us ordered the grouper dinner, which was excellent.

It was not cooked thoroughly as much of the fish was stuck to the bones. I didn’t complain because my wife’s lobster tail was excellent and this is one of our favorite restaurants on the island. I would still recommend Pelican Nest but this experience was not the best.

It was really hot under the deck roof. There was a big dinner boat docked and loading guests which blocked the breeze. A group of about 20 young people came in and it was noisy. But all expected when on a pier eating dinner!

Appetizers were good even though they ran out of tuna tatami which was our first choice. Dinner was excellent with fresh seafood and funchi fries, etc. Service was a little slow but not bad.

My husband had to send back his mahi. It was not fresh and tasted fishy. They did replace it with a nice grouper fillet that was good. Our tabletop was sticky and chairs uncomfortable. Our waitress was nice so no problem there.

Food and drinks were very good, though not outstanding. Service was pleasant as well. During our week-long vacation, we prefer not to make every dinner a full production. Pelican Pier was a good option to throw into the mix.

This time it was just plain awful. There was practically no one eating there at the time. It took the waitress a while to take our order. I ordered what I usually get - grouper and it was not very good, the fish did not taste fresh, it was cold. My husband's dinner was horrible, he had to send it back. We will not return next time we are in Aruba. We were so disappointed.

Wait staff was friendly, although the kitchen prepared one of our meals incorrectly. Our biggest complaint is they claim to provide a vegan menu, which they list on their website and one person in our party needed. However, they had no vegan meals available so that member of our party was stuck eating just a salad with no protein. They should remove the vegan options from their online menu if they are not going to serve vegan food. We picked that restaurant specifically because they listed vegan options. We would have gone elsewhere had we known.
