Came to Aruba for our honeymoon with lots of suggestions on places to eat. We went into town for an afternoon and this was a great start to our shopping for lunch. Great view, fun atmosphere, good lunch selections and reasonably priced for an island. Slow service (but Aruba runs on island time), crowded and warm but overall enjoyable!

We have eaten many times at Iguana Joe's over the years. The food is always good, served hot and good quality. We ate here twice during our last stay, once for lunch the other for dinner. For lunch I opted for the burger and my wife got the jerked chicken. We shared our sandwiches so we could each have some... More

The food was good and the service was great.... They have a large variety on their menu - food for everyone. Great views as this is upstairs. Sit by the outer edge and you get a good breeze and can people watch.

We ate here three times in five days and each time was better than the last. The atmosphere was always buzzy and fun... and the patio style dining area overlooking the shopping area just added to the experience. The service - given how busy the place can get - was fantastic. The menu is great (featuring familiar favourites as well... More

Went downtown for a meal while in Aruba and everyone wanted comfort food. We settled on Iguana Joe's and thought the food was very good. Enjoyed good drinks and watching the street traffic. Much better than the Senor Frog's here!

Had lunch with family at Iguana Joe's, nice atmosphere , good drinks ( try their pink iguana ! ) and good dishes as well. Must try dish: shrimp Josephine served in half coconut shell. Given the location it's more indicated for lunch, as Oranjestad center is not much fun in the evening, but be aware that their sister location in... More

We wanted some comfort food one night and wanted to go downtown to eat. The food here was really good and the drinks were too. We enjoyed sitting on the deck and people watching on the street.

I really like the atmosphere of this place. The upstairs deck overlooking the water and street is a fun place to sit back and relax and eat some good food and have some good drinks. After being on a cruise boat for four days, it's nice to get something different to eat and to get some good strong margaritas. The... More
