My wife and I ate dinner here 5 nights out of our 8 night stay. There really was no reason to dine anywhere else. Everything about the place was quality - the food, the drink, the ambience and the service. I can highly recommended Iguana Joe's. Everything on the menu is good but the almond crusted grouper is stupendous as... More

We were here 19 years ago, and the place is still a good one to visit if you are downtown. Good burgers and cocktails, nice view overlooking the street and marina. Great sountrack/music playing.

The manager was very friendly and had me laughing at the door. This level of service continued throughout our visit. I had my first Aruba Ariba the day before and was excited to try another. I was not disappointed - excellent. The food was good too. We had sandwiches for lunch. We sat at a high top overlooking the street.... More

We had dinner around 7:30pm and the place was pretty empty. It was recommended to us by a couple that has been coming to the island for over a decade. We tried a few of their specialty drinks and enjoyed them. For dinner we had the Keshi Jena, Shrimp Josephine, Burger, and Cuban Sandwich. All were very tasty. The Keshi... More

Fish tacos, special nachos, cuban sandwiches, chili tortilla salad, Balashi beer and margaritas! What more could you ask for? Visited twice this trip to Aruba and had great meals there (and to take home for lunch the next day). Service is a little slow as they are so busy, but be prepared to relax, visit and enjoy the view and... More

I had lunch at Iguana Joe's, located in the Royal Plaza Mall in Oranjestad. Although the restaurant was crowded with a lot of cruise tourists, we were seated and served in a relatively short time. I started out with a Virgin Pina Colada, which was so good. I am a bean lover so for my main course I chose the... More
