Nothing like being in Aruba and enjoying the seafood caught fresh that day! We had a late seating at this small but popular restaurant. Friendly staff and lighting-fast service! The seafood all around was enjoyed by our family. We will be back next year!

I have been going to Aruba for over 20 years. I have had my share of favorite restaurants/favorite dishes. When going to wacky wahoo for the first time a few years ago this quickly became my favorite restaurant and has stayed that way ever since. I cannot say enough good things about this place - location, food, service. The food... More

On July 16, 2015 my wife and I enjoyed a wonderful meal at Wacky Wahoo. The place is not large but comfortable. I highly recommend getting reservation in advance. I had the catch of the day, Barracuda and Shrimp, while my wife had Lobster. Both meals were outstanding.

Don't let the name or location stop you from visiting this restaurant. The best meal I enjoyed in Aruba, and even told the chef/ owner at the end of the meal. Greeted by the bartender and waiter who was friendly and knowledgeable about great local seafood. The owner fishes daily for the fresh catch of the day. Taking our waiter's... More

Fresh fish caught every morning. They usually have 4 different options for fish each day. I had the barracuda and it was awesome. Something you never see in the states. They can prepare the fish in a bunch of different ways. The fish soup is also good. The ceviche was one of the best I have had. Its a small... More

If you are traveling to Aruba Wacky Whahoo is a must try. The absolute best food and fish served in Aruba. If you don't try another restaurant this is the one. Make sure you make a reservation because it is always packed . Try the grouper Aruban style it's a don't miss.

Wacky Wahoo's was absolutely delicious! We had an 8:30 reservations, which is generally needed as this place is small. The waitstaff was attentive and accommodating. We are a family of 4 and all of us ordered the same meal because it sounded fantastic. We ordered the Barracuda, which was delicious. The fish was great, along with the salsa and all... More
