Just ok

We were not thrilled with our food or service the night we were here. I ordered nachos and my husband ordered a dish with a few different items. I was surprised that the nachos were burned. The chips themselves were burned (blackened). My husband said his was ok. Our waitress didn't really come... read more

Who would think I would go to Aruba to find a great Mexican restaurant, well we did. The Queso with jalapenos and the cheese enchiladas with tomatillo sauce was to die for. Great bar as well. If you get there early enough you can sit right at the balcony which is really cool. There is a light show right outside... More

This restaurant has bright colored lights and a traditional fiesta atmosphere. We asked for a seat on the patio next to the railing so we could see the light show soon to begin on the mall area below, and were fortunate to get the last open table. Our server, Gabriel, brought fresh chips and salsa as soon as we were... More

The staff was very friendly and the food very good. Service was a little on the slow side but not bad. We had the $15 pitcher of Sangria and couldn't finish it. Try to time your visit to coincide with the entertainment there or the light show, it's great to watch a show while eating.

Decided to have something different toward the end of our trip as we were getting our fill of seafood, steaks, and Italian (oh my, what a life!). The 2nd floor veranda caught our attention. The open-air atmosphere was nice but the food was just ok. My husband liked his chicken enchiladas. I had the nachos -- mistake. They started off... More

Visited last week for dinner with the family. Salsa is a little watery but the entrees were good and so were the frozen margaritas. We had the chicken chimicanga, fish tacos, beef tacos and quesidillas.

We made a mistake of not reviewing Trip Advisor before eating here. We were originally headed to another restaurant but walking by Iguana Cantina the menu and atmosphere looked promising... Unfortunately the food was just "ok" at best. They didn't even get the cheese melted in enchiladas. We had good service and liked the atmosphere but would not recommend this... More

We ended up here without planning and luckily we had just received some coupons for it. The coupons were for free Margaritas. Loved them! The location is great. It over looks the courtyard of the Plaza, good for the fountain show. The service was pretty great too. Food is OK, don't expect Mexican food (although the menu is Mexican food)... More

This restaurant over looks the fountain and shopping courtyard. We were lucky to see the fountain light show and a dancing show while we ate. The downside is the food is average and the server was not friendly at all. It's so humid in Aruba that you have to sit where there's a breeze. The "breeze" was 30 miles an... More
