Fun atmosphere but low grade Mexican. Definitely get the recommended fajitas since the supposed Mexican dishes aren't very authentic. Ok sangria without fruit, very strong margaritas and runny salsa and runny refried beans. Had my taste buds up but disappointed them.

They claim to have the best burritos on the island and I think they're probably right!! Between the whole family we had shredded chicken, grilled chicken, steak and the vegetarian option and ALL we awesome! The kids are begging us to go back!

Went to Iguana Cantina with some friends and waited 30 minutes for a table. After we ordered food it took over an hour for the food to come. The service was horrible and they are way understaffed. One of my worst restaurant experiences in Aruba.

Food and drinks were fantastic. The problem here is their ability to turn tables. They just seem to be short on staff. The steak burrito is off the hook so order it, by the way its enormous!

If you're ever in the mood for Hispanic food, this is by far the best place on the island to get it! Amazing, friendly service and the food is to die for.

We went here on a whim, while walking we ran into a family that raved about this place. Apparently the same people that own Smokey Joes owns this place. Well as it turns out this is another fine place to eat. Good service, seems like everyplace in Aruba has it, good food, good size portion, fabulous Sangria too. I ordered... More

My wife and I ate here our first night in Aruba. The food was very good and so were the margaritas. There are some good specials during the week so make sure to check them out.

Found this place in the hotel restaurant book and decided to give it a try. We ate here on a Sunday evening and then returned a few days later. Our first experience was great, the server, (very petite young lady) whose name escapes me now was fantastic we wanted for nothing! In appreciation, we tipped her very well! Fast forward... More

My adult daughter and son-in-law ate dinner at Iguana Cantina on June 9, 2015. Having eaten there before, they looked forward to some Mexican food. The restaurant was crowded, with only 2 wait persons working that night. The ugly: the chips brought out with the dip were burnt, the food was not what they remembered and the straw that broke...
