The lunch was OK and nothing more. I would not say bad, but great is a big leap from what we experienced. Just a regular place for a regular bite. The staff was friendly and the ambiance was like you would expect from a place like this.

Bog standard affair. Overpriced and pretty poor quality. 24 oz steak more like 8 oz. Wouldn't recommend or use again. Staff seemed like a miserable bunch.

While in Aruba, you will probably do some shopping in the downtown area or be there to see one of the tourist attractions such as the submarine or the casino. Iguana Joe's is within an easy walk of these places. The restaurant is two stories, open air with ceiling fans. The menu is what you would expect: Caribbean, Latino and... More

My wife and I were in town with a teenaged daughter, shopping mostly at the local jewelry stores, when we decided to try Iguana Joes for a late lunch. We got right in, the service was prompt, the food was good and the drinks were cold. Open air atmosphere, and elevated for people watching. Not fancy, but fancy wasn't what... More

We have vistas Aruba twice now, and we have visited Iguana's on both occasions. This second visit was nothing short of appalling. Our waiter was completely disinterested, with little or no manners and really wasn't bothered about us at all. When you are so used to the perfectly polite, friendly way of Arubian people it was a bit of a... More

We have been here almost every time we have visited Aruba. Good food, nice view and laid back atmosphere. If you like spicy get the jerk ribs. A little sweet with some good heat. I will be back!!!

We went here for dinner. I had a chicken burrito. It was huge and very good. I also enjoyed a margarita. And your meal starts with chips and salsa. It is a fun open air atmosphere. I recommend going before 7:00. After that I guess it gets busy.

My husband and I ate dinner there one evening. He had the burger and loved it. I had the chicken skewers and rice.
