Stopped in this 2nd story, open-air restaurant while out jewelry shopping with my mom and sister. Didn't expect too much in a touristy area, but we were all happy with our food and drinks (which were strong). Always crowded, always a good vibe, views of the cruise ships. Very convenient lunch when out shopping at the duty-free stores.

We came here for lunch. No complaints. The drinks were large, cold and refreshing. The steak fajitas were delicious and quite generous, with more than enough steak for the 4 tortillas. Chicken quesadilla quite nice. Good location. Service a bit slow.

Get a Pink Iguana and the Nachos and you will be all set! We had a great meal and a ton of drinks then got a taxi to the beach.

The food was ok but the service was terrible. We came in on a Carnival cruise and after 15min we finally got a drink order in and another 10min finally a food order in. Saw the waiter twice in over an hour. Granted there was a cruise liner in port but the restaurant was not that busy. All in all... More

My husband and I stopped here for lunch and the service and atmosphere were fine. My dish, Nacho cheese was a bit tasteless and the cheese was not real ... It was cheese wiz. My husband had a wrap and found it also rather tasteless so spiced it up with some hot sauce. In general, food was disappointing.

It's on the 2nd flr on main st near the cruise terminals so it gives you a great view from their outside seating. The good is good and the drinks tasty!!! Good bang for your $ as well.

Stopped here for lunch on a hot day after shopping. The breeze is nice being high up after walking in the sun shopping. Our waitress was very friendly. The food is pricey but large portions. We could have shared. Alcoholic drinks were over priced and nothing special. Thus the #3 value rating. All in all we were glad we stopped... More

Just came back from Aruba and had the pleasure of eating at Iguana Joes twice. Was traveling with family both times everyone could not get over complimenting the food. If you're a fan of jambalaya it's the best I've ever eaten the ribs are incredible the fajitas are un believable. The Caribbean patties are on the appetizer menu give me... More
