Each time we come to Aruba we HAVE to go to Iguana Joe's. Prices are like the states and the food/cocktails are yummy! Of course, our trip would not be complete without a shopping trip in their store for some fabulous Iguana Joes hot sauce (for me to take home for a group of people who love it too, besides... More

Went to iguana joes with my wife on our 2nd evening in Aruba. Very friendly staff and good food. Not fast food but more comfort food. The jambalaya was a huge portion :)

Good service. Decent food. Huge portions. Drinks were good. Be aware that there is a sports bar across the street also on a second-floor deck that plays VERY loud music.

Turned away at the door by a fairly rude worker. Raining outside and guess he assumed we were just trying to get out of the rain and didn't even ask us if we wanted to wait for a table.

We've been coming to Aruba for 20 years, and visiting Iguana Joe's is always a MUST DO! We stay on the island for 10 days, and we always visit this establishment at least twice. The restaurant is in the heart of Aruba's capital, Oranjestad. It's on the second floor of a shopping center. There is an elevator in this center,... More

We stopped here for lunch after doing the Atlantis Submarine. The price was a little high, but it's Aruba and expected. I had the BBQ ranch chicken salad, it was OK. My husband had grilled fish and Cuban black bean soup, which was tasty. The service was prompt and attentive. The menu had good variety. If I were in the... More

We had a great lunch here: coconut shrimps and a chicken wrap, topped off with some cocktails :-) We will certainly come here again!

Nothing great about the food and the drinks were weak. Nice view of the town from the 2nd floor. Located right in the middle of town.

Iguana Joe's is located in the floor above the street adjacent to the main cruise ship terminal in the heart of Oranjestad. Many of the tables are open air and look out over the street and the water in the distance. My husband and I were recently in Aruba for a vacation staying at a hotel in Oranjestad, and we... More
