We called in just for drinks and the free internet connection and it was great. The crew on our crews ship were there too and they know all the good places to eat and drink! Staff were good and friendly. It's got a great position on the Main Street, and with the relaxed atmosphere it's a great place to relax... More

I have visited Iguana Joe's more than 5 times, and once 3 times in one day! The food here is AWESOME! You can't go wrong with the Jerk chicken, BBQ ribs, burgers, and pitcher of Sangria!

This is located upstairs on the water....so great view of the ocean and all of the huts/stores downtown. The food was good and the service was the best we had in Aruba. Good price for what you get too. It was a Fun location for our lunch and afternoon shopping day.

Iguana Joe is located on the 2nd floor in the Renaissance Mall in Oranjestad. They do not only offer excellent cocktails, but also very good and authentic food. Of course, they adapted to some American taste (burgers etc), but there are also typical Caribbean dishes like Keshi Yena or their award-winning dish Shrimps Josephine. Do really try these dishes, you... More

But one plate will do the trick, they're just amazing off the bone, and finger licking good. With a sauce can to throw the bone and a paper roll to clean your fingers a beer is the best bet for the ribs. I went to the other location, close to the high rise hotels. They give you a half slab... More

Could not find a better spot for a Cold Balashi and some mid day snacks . Good sized meals at a reasonable price, centrally located near the Plaza and the Renaissance . Enjoyed it very much.
