    My husband and I dined at Pinchos about 2 weeks ago. The food and service are good and the view is unbelievable! A tip for those who may like variety or are small eaters like us - at the tables, you will be presented with a dinner menu with the expectation that you'll each pick a single type of skewer for an entree. However, if you sit at the bar (which doesn't require reservations), you can get or share an appetizer platter with 5 different types of appetizer-size skewers and several accompanying dips. The staff was kind enough to allow us to stay at our table but share the platter so we could try each kind of kabob. Please do order a salad; both the salsa and the cucumber salads were tasty!

    pinchos

    is the resturant located on the pier ? Is the pier behind a hotel ? How far is it from the Radisson ? It looks very nice, is there a special place to sit to request ? Should you be there for a sunset ? Out of the pier like that, do you have to worry about the mosiquitos, for example if i wear shorts, should I bring a can of spray ( off ) for my legs, they seem to bother DH more, he swears if there is one on the island it will find him, I guess Sweet Blood ( lol, I tell him sure that must be it )

    pinchos is located on a pier across the street from TALK OF THE TOWN hotel.
    the location is in the downtown area.....really kind of beyond downtown near the roundabout

    one can see the end of the runway from pinchos location
    almost like you can reach out and touch the planes that are landing.

    mosquitos i would just assume there are. if there are not, so be it....good!

    it is approx 3 or 4 miles from the radisson.

    this restaurant is very close to the outskirts of town on the NEAR the airport.

    taxi $17 from Radisson. not including tip.

    Pinchos is one of our favorites. We never miss a sunset dinner at Pinchos. It is right near the traffic circle by Talk of the Town.

    Great place for a sunset - the seats on the outside of the pier have a better view.

    The cucumber salad there is sooooo good!

    We enjoyed Pinchos very much. The atmosphere is great and the food is too. It's on the lighter side which is good after having a few nights with heavy meals.

    sorry, to ask again, but looking for a good time to go, already have a couple of sunset dining plans, not that i couldn't add this to that list, but does it make a difference as to what time you go and where you might request to sit

    as shnyda said the seats on the outside of the pier have the best view.
    and as cindy says...the edge of the railing

    go about 30 minutes prior to sunset for perfect view seating.
    but if you are not interested in sunset, go anytime.
    all of the seating is good.
    it is a small establishment.

    Pincho's is about 1/4 mile east of the Renaissance, on the road to the airport. Very quiet area. I would highly recommend making this a sunset visit....say a 6:00 reservation (you'll have a 7:00 sunset).

    No worry about mosquitoes....never encountered one there.
