Pinchos Grill and Bar
Pinchos Grill and Bar (L.G. Smith Blvd 7, Oranjestad) – given its name, this restaurant focuses on grilled meat dishes. One favored item is the locally made Chourico — a Portuguese sausage. Various items that can be skewered (pork, steak, shrimp) are served here as well, even pan-seared grouper (in that case, served with an apricot and ginger dipping sauce).
No doubt, Pinchos’ real attraction is its location: built on a pier off shore at Surfside Marina, where the atmosphere is as romantic as romantic gets (complete with unforgettable sunsets). No surprise that the TV show “The Bachelor” took place here some years ago.
