Still a family favourite

We eat here most times we are in Aruba and went again this year and it is still good. Nice atmosphere, good service and good Mexican style food. Portions are large so go when hungry. We had nachos to start and family agreed that they are among the best. Will stay on our must visit list in Aruba

Open air seating on the 2nd floor of the building allowed for nice breezes. The drinks are delicious (and potent!). Food was good and plentiful. Attentive wait staff and a bartender who made up a drink for me. And I liked it since the background music featured 3 U2 songs while I was there :-)

This was one of the first restaurants that I had been to when I arrived in Aruba. The waiter I had was friendly. The food was delicious and nicely presented. My favourite drink was the Banana Bye-Bye. A definite must have.

This restaurant has a relaxing, casual atmosphere with a festive decor. The drink sizes were the largest that we encountered on the island which is important when you consider that you don't get refills at restaurants and you have kids that quickly drink their tea or pop.

I had the most delicious ribs. The meat was so tender and the sauce was excellent. My husband got the coconut shrimp. It was the best coconut shrimp I've ever tasted. There were eight of us that ate there and we all enjoyed our lunch. Fun place to go to with a very friendly and efficient staff

We enjoyed Joe's food and drinks. Everything was excellent including the large portions. Wings were okay. The service was above average.
