The food here was great! Some of the best Mexican I have ever had! Excellent quality and flavors. The drinks also very good. We all liked the inexpensive prices too! Nice entertainment in the mall below us. Lovely!

My husband and I ate here for dinner. There was only one other group in the entire restaurant so that should have been a sign to steer clear. We ordered chicken fajitas, cheese enchiladas and 2 margaritas. We were both sick before our meal was even over. The enchiladas were completely dry, you could tell they had been cooked previously...

This was our second visit to Iguana Cantina. We were there 2 years ago and just loved the place that we made a point to come back. This second time was not as good as the first time. You get plenty of food for a reasonable price; however service was poor during this visit. The place was pretty empty so... More

The restaurant is Connected with Iguana Joe's and Smokey Joe's and all 3 are good food and value compared to most in Aruba. Cantina's shares some menu items with all 3 but Fajitas are their specialty. The Nacho's are my favorite and more than a meal for one person, even though it is an appetizer.

My husband and I ate here in December and had wonderful service by Jorge. We were originally seated at a table that wasn't overlooking the Mall, but without our prompting, when a table overlooking the mall opened up Jorge quickly moved us there - great experience! The food was good but a tad bland (there's a reason for the many... More

Okay, the place had a good view of the MALL, if that's what you're looking for. BUT...This place had to have the absolute worst Mexican food I've ever had, and I've had alot. Most of what we ordered had no resemblance to real food, Mexican or otherwise. Service was okay and so was the margarita, but how hard is Mexican... More

Large portions, reasonable prices for the area in both food & happy hour drinks. Upstairs, open to the breezes made it extra enjoyable. Consider sharing items like burrito- it's huge.

This was our first visit here after spending 10 days in Aruba! It was by far the cheapest dinner, and we felt like something casual. The coupon for the free Margaritas brought us in! We each ordered a Free Margaritas (one strawberry and one Mango and both were frozen and delicious- and they did not skimp on the alcohol). Our... More

We have a few reataurants in Aruba that we absolutely love. Iguana Cantina will not be added to that list. The service was slow. The server did not offer to refresh our drinks even though we were there for what seemed like a rediculously long wait. Finally, our burritos came. They were warm on the outside but nearly cold on...
