Thought I was walking in to a fun place, (like senor frogs type of place) however, the staff seemed to be only about themselves, the host was put off that we were not coming to eat and wanted us to sit indoor area, when I requested to sit at the outdoor balcony area he obliged but not without an attitude....

We had a lunch of tacos, ribs and chicken skewers which was delicious. We had a jug of sangria which was nice. The place was buzzing and with a range of clientele from couples to families alike. It has a good menu and service is friendly.

After a lengthy walk, stopped here for a drink. Drinks and food not great-no WiFi. Went to another establishment. Much better.

My husband and I made our annual trip to Aruba in January. We always go to all the JOE’S restaurants. The food is excellent, the service is great (special TY to Jenny at CANTINA), the ambiance is outdoor, fun, Aruban party, and the price is very reasonable. Thanks JOE’S for making every years trip better than the last!

We went here after a recommendation from someone at our resort. It's a nice place to sit and people watch and relaxing with a drink. I had a Pink Iguana, it was so good! My husband had shrimp in a creosol sauce and served with half a coconut. Nice flavor. I had coconut shrimp, which just had way too much... More

My family wasn't expecting much, but we were very pleased with our dinner at Iguana Joe's. The seating is outdoors but has a nice breeze with a view of the main road in Oranjestad. The drink menu had many fun choices from frozen to potent drinks. The Pink Iguana appears to be their most popular drink and was very fruity.... More

My food was great and the atmosphere is quite lovely. I'd recommend it as a nice day time bar with family and friends.

Stopped at Iguana Joes for drinks and a snack before returning to our cruise ship after a day of sightseeing and shopping with friends staying in Aruba. The atmosphere is great with wonderful views of cruise ships, people shopping. Pleasant wait staff. The beers were great and we had doe chips and salsa to soak up the alcohol. The menu... More

While checking out the sights and shops in Oranjestad, my wife and I were hot and thirsty. We went to Iguana Joes and got a couple of their interesting cocktails. The drink menu was great, and the drinks themselves were even better. There was another couple sitting at the bar with us, and we ended up chatting with them and... More
