We ate at Pega Pega every day on our vacation for lunch and drinks. The food at this small beach bar is outstanding. Everything is fresh and there are tons of healthy options to choose from. The bartenders really made it worth the stay however....Maggie is so sweet and welcoming. She learned our names and preferences on the first day and always remembered us when we bellied up to the bar. She made our trip a little more special. The staff running drinks to the beach were also outstanding, always remembering our favorite drink orders and returning with cold beverages in quick order. Thank you for taking such good care of us! We can't wait to visit again on our anniversary trip!More

We thought they had a full dinner menu (they don't), but their snack menu is still good enough to eat a full dinner. We got a burger, and salads and some other stuff. Great Aruba Ariba. But the view!! We watched sunset there and it...was soooo beautiful. The waitstaff was very friendly as well.More

Discovered this place when looking for Ike's Bistro which was such an awesome find. We were greeted at the entrance to the hotel, Manchebo by a wonderful door guy telling us where to park. This place was beautiful open and sooooo clean. We walked thru...the hotel to a lovely café by the ocean, the Pega Pega Grill. Alex was so responsive in being right there when we sat down. He took our orders, made recommendations and took care of so well. Food was great and the fish tacos delicious. Thank you ALEX for taking wonderful care of us. We will be BACK.More

When we found Ike's closed, the staff directed us to Pega Pega & our server Alex for a relaxing Sunday lunch. Alex is attentive, funny and shared bits about the island that we didn't know, despite 20 years of traveling to Aruba. This was certainly...one happy (& unexpected) Sunday lunch. Food is great & presentation is beautiful. The Aruban fish tacos are excellent as are all of the small plates. The chick pea roll ups were a hit at our table. We are here for another week and will absolutely see Alex & Pega Pega again!!More

I loved my afternoons at Pega Pega! I stayed at Manchebo, and looked forward to coming off the beach in the afternoon for lunch. The menu was pescatarian-friendly and everything I ordered was delicious. I loved the fish tacos, tofu bowl, shrimp bowl, and veggie...burger. Even better than the food (and drinks!), were the people. I wish i could remember everyone's name, but the team members who made my afternoons memorable include Josuel, Jason, Muriel, Carolina, Ignacio, and the kitchen guys-Erick, Jurgen, and Rafael. I can't wait to come back to see everyone again!More

I was a guest at the Manchebo resort and i had the absolute pleasure of having lunch here everyday. I had the best experience here not only for the food but my experience with the staff. Magaly was my bartender and she was so attentive...and sweet. Steven was also a waiter I had and he was awesome! I also got to meet the chefs and I felt like I was having lunch with my friends back at home. I felt extremely welcomed and happy to see how hardworking and happy the staff are here, I could keep going about the hospitality here. The food: burgers were amazing, love the portions of the salads, the plating is beautiful and the empanadas are to die for. Highly recommend this place!More

Casual beach bar (part of Manchebo Beach Resort). Menu has a good selection of vegetarian and vegan dishes (no separate menu, but all clearly marked), including a great Buddha bowl and good vegan "fish" tacos. Also, sandwiches, salads, vegan burger, samosas, quesadillas and chickpea tortilla...roll ups.More

Sorry for the delayed response. Actually you can walk if you have the time. It's south of Eagle Beach. I would call it a "considerable" walk but if you make it part of a planned walking excursion it will be fine... More
