The staff were so welcoming and extremely friendly with helping me choose my dinner! The restaurant was packed with people but the host was so accommodating with getting me a seat followed by a cold beer and an amazing meal! Will definitely come back for a visit!

We went to Wacky Wahoo's on the recommendation of friends who were there in August. They told us it was a "must" on Aruba. They were right. Our hotel concierge made reservations two weeks ahead of our visit and we are glad we planned in advance. We shared the Tiger shrimp appetizer, it was quick fried in a thin batter... More

Call ahead while your still home to make reservations, to insure you get to eat at the best seafood restaurant in Aruba. Had the Barracuda this time, found my new favorite fish, but everything here is fantastic.... You just have to get in

A lot of people seem to know about this place. It's always busy. They only take reservations between 3 and 5 pm. When it's crowded, it's very loud and hard to hear. The food was excellent and the price was right.

We love the Wacky Wahoo. Our only regret is that when we tried to get reservations, even up to a week ahead we couldn't get in. Sooooooooooo! no Wacky Wahoo this trip to Aruba, If you really want to get in, make you reservations well ahead.

The food at this place is gourmet but the atmosphere is very laid back and not stuffy at all! The best and freshest fish! Make a reservation early because this place is very popular. We just walked in at 5:30 and were able to get a table for 4. Most people reserve two weeks in advance.

During our week in Aruba, the couple we were with kept commenting about how each nights food was better than the last and Wacky Wahoo was our last night. The Restaurant topped our list for the week with the best dishes we had eaten. We all had a version of the Wahoo or the Barracuda with different sauces. The staff... More
