Fun casual place in Oranjestad

Open air seating on the 2nd floor of the building allowed for nice breezes. The drinks are delicious (and potent!). Food was good and plentiful. Attentive wait staff and a bartender who made up a drink for me. And I liked it since the background music featured 3 U2 songs while I was there :-)

This was one of the first restaurants that I had been to when I arrived in Aruba. The waiter I had was friendly. The food was delicious and nicely presented. My favourite drink was the Banana Bye-Bye. A definite must have.

This restaurant has a relaxing, casual atmosphere with a festive decor. The drink sizes were the largest that we encountered on the island which is important when you consider that you don't get refills at restaurants and you have kids that quickly drink their tea or pop. This restaurant also has great adult drinks where they don't skimp on the... More

I had the most delicious ribs. The meat was so tender and the sauce was excellent. My husband got the coconut shrimp. It was the best coconut shrimp I've ever tasted. There were eight of us that ate there and we all enjoyed our lunch. Fun place to go to with a very friendly and efficient staff

We enjoyed Joe's food and drinks. Everything was excellent including the large portions. Wings were okay. The service was above average.

In June we returned to Aruba with our youngest daughter and decided to break up the week by catching the bus to Oranjestad. One of our highlights was eating at Iguana Joe's. Joe's has an interesting menu that has something for everyone, the meat eater, fish person, vegetarian and all in-between. Our daughter had the chicken chili wrap and loved... More

This restaurant is a interesting mix of food. There is a combination of safe tourist food (Hamburgers and french fries) with some Caribbean and Aruba classics. I had the Jerk chicken, it was moist, had good flavor and there was alot of meat provided. The mac and cheese side dish was sort of blah. Not much flavor going on with... More
