This place is busy which is a good sign. The quality of food we saw comming from the kitchen to the tables looked fantastic. We only came in here to have a drink at the bar which we like doing. Once you sit at the bar you get a feel for the place and observe what other people are eating.... More

I got the "best burger on the island" and my wife got the grouper BLT. The burger was pretty good, not the best. She said her sandwich was good but told me the grouper wasn't fully cooked. Service was fair. For our sandwiches with fries, soda, her cocktail the bill was $50. Aruba is pricey no matter where you go.

Stopped by for lunch and really enjoyed our experience. We had a chicken sandwich and a salad and both were very good. The service was prompt and friendly. Probably a little more expensive than other similar restaurants in the area, but well worth the small price difference in my opinion.

BBQ ribs cooked to perfection. My wife had Jerk Chicken. Very good but not authentic. Good spot for lunch. Not fancy but pleasant. Good Atmosphere. In the heart of Downtown.

We always go to Iguana Joes when we are in Aruba. Great hamburgers and marguerites. Great place to people watch and enjoy being in Aruba!

The restaurant is an open air bar style with food having a Caribbean flair. The specialties such as the cheese dip, grouper sandwich, etc. were well prepared and unique for the area. It was a good departure from more formal dining. Prices were reasonable for Aruba standards as well (you're not in Kansas anymore Toto but you're in a tropical... More

What the other restaurants in Aruba lack, Iguana Joe's more than makes up for. We were greeted with a smile, walked to a table, and water was provided in large glasses. The servers were personable and followed up on the meal, ensuring we had everything we needed. We enjoyed our visit so much, that we returned for a second visit.... More

This was a place that we have put on our list for our next visit to Aruba. It's in the Downtown shopping district, and very close to the cruise ships and the airport. We heard only good things about this place.

Great lil' outdoor restaurant with good prices on an otherwise very pricey to eat island. The triple rib combo is the bomb! Three kinds with lots of potatoes and onions on the side. Get a doggie bag and have lunch for another day.
