Great drinks and bar food. Happy hour comes with great live entertainment and the place lively and packed with fun people. It is on the pier next to the Hilton. If it gets too hot for you, jump in the Caribbean. Best drinks on the Palm Beach.

We spent several afternoons here having cocktails over the water and something to eat later in the afternoon. There is a Happy Hour with 1/2 price drinks and the drinks are GOOD! (Aruba Riba!) They also have two employees who do a karaoke, walking around, singing thing, which was (to our delight) actually quite good! Both have good voices and... More

Located on the pier near Hilton/high-rise resort, this is a cute bar with tables and bar area. Great views of the ocean! Lots of options for drinks and food. Place was hopping! Beer was cold & service was good. Food was average and typical beach bar food. They did offer different specials daily so other items might have been better.... More

This crowded and very informal outdoor place on a pier off the beach was a nice setting for lunch on the beach.The Dutch Aruban waitresses were friendly and efficient. We had grouper and tuna wraps and one gets 2 wraps per portion and they were surprisingly good. Tropical mixed drinks were only $8,Good, informal place.

This sets the standard for a "Tiki Bar". The restaurant is located on a pier about 200 feet off the shore and is surrounded by water and is decorated perfectly. They had live music a few times a week and the staff was great as well. We ended up coming here a few times during our stay because we enjoyed... More

We went back to Aruba for the second time and had to stop here. Great food, drinks and atmosphere. Once we got there most of the same people were working there which was great! It's just a really chill and happy place to stop by and grab food and a drink (or 2) lol.

Thank Mary S
