Extensive menu and huge portions.(my daughter ordered fajitas and the chicken came in a red hot pan with separate guacamole and salsa and 4 separate tortillas ! ) A fun lunch and change from outer...

Went for dinner here while walking around downtown. Portions were excellent, my son did not like his burger but devoured his wings. My parents both had daiquiris and they were really good. I had the Shrimp Josephine and it was excellent. We ended up liking the place so much we came back a second time and my son ate two... More

We ate there for lunch, because it's right on the downtown strip and it looked like it had good views and a decent lunch menu. The views were pretty good, the food was OK, and the service was solid. We had fish tacos, which were not great and were tiny, and some of the kids menu food which was also... More

We stopped for a light lunch and both enjoyed shrimp appetizers. The restaurant overlooks the Main Street and one block away is the gorgeous Caribbean Sea. It was fun to watch a cruise ship come in while dining.

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
