Never got to try the food the service was so bad. After 45 minutes at the table the only thing we were served was a drink. Had hoped for an appetizer and a meal, but they wait staff couldn't keep up. Got up and left...but even that took another 15 minutes just to get the bill paid standing at the... More

My husband and I stayed at an all-inclusive resort while in Aruba, but figured we'd go out to lunch on our last day before heading to the airport. We got Igrana Joe's as a suggestion from our bartender at the resort so we figured we'd try it out. Atmosphere: HOT. It's pretty much all outdoor seating. We hauled our giant... More

We ate lunch here after a morning of in-town jewelry shopping. My mother loved the cute little shopping area, and we loved our 2nd floor perch above the action. I ordered lemonade and the waitress brought us the spiked lemonade. Of course, my mom drinks about half of it (she's not a drinker) before it hits her that it's alcoholic,... More

Though is seemed expensive, the rib combo left overs fed my husband and me for two more meals. Great service too.

We always have lunch at Iguana Joe's after shopping in Oranjestad. And it's the last place we eat before heading to the airport on the way home. Raquel is the best waitress but all the staff is friendly and the food is wonderful.

Loved the location, with the outdoor dining tables - loved to watch the action in the street below as people walked by. Variety on menu is wonderful; our server was very attentive and food was delivered promptly and hot; I had the chicken fajitas and they were awesome. Free Wi-Fi available. Prices were reasonable;

We have eaten here several times and always liked it. A very nice location and interior, good atmosphere, friendly and informal service and simple but good (and big) dishes. Very nice restaurant.

Great Caribbean Bar & Grill. Always a favorite lunch stop when we do a little shopping in Oranjestad. They are not kidding, the Hurricane Joe will wipe out any tropical depression and more than two will wipe you out. Great starters, especially the wings and quesadillas. Service is always friendly, but can sometimes be a little slow, but who is... More

We ate there on June 13, 2014, and we liked it very much. Chicken fajitas were very good, and my kids loved their mac & cheese. Service was pretty good, and the prices aren't too bad. We especially love the view of downtown Aruba from the eating area!
