During our visit to Orangestad to do some shopping, we stopped here to have some drinks, snacks, and cool off. Because there is construction across the street at this time, it was loud. However, the service was great and the drinks hit the spot.

A trip to Aruba is not complete without a stop to Iguana Joe's for the Iguana Nachos and cocktails! Located downtown and overlooking the harbour, Iguana Joes has been around for decades for good reasons! We always visit for a casual supper, or lunch while downtown. This trip we went twice. Purchase their hot sauces to take home, as they... More

We decided to have lunch here as soon as we got off our Royal Caribbean Navigator of the Sea cruise ship. The restaurant on the second floor overlooks the beautiful town & you could even view the cruise ships at the port. The restaurant when we arrived around noon was really crowded, but we were lucky to be seated. My... More

We were looking around for a nice place to have lunch. This place is right downtown and close to the port. It is open and airy. The food and service were both very good. Just getting some of their appetizers makes for a good lunch.

My wife and I ate here two years ago, while visiting Aruba on a cruise. So, there was no question as to where we would eat lunch on this visit. We were seated very quickly, considering there were 3 ships in port. We ordered chips & salsa, while we reviewed the menu. We both ordered the jerk chicken sandwich with... More

I stopped here for dinner my second night in Oranjestad and the waiter recommended the ribs, they had two kinds so of course I ordered both. I had rice and beans for sides and a margarita to drink. Everything was great and I enjoyed my meal but do need to stop ordering so much that I leave feeling stuffed. A... More

This was our second time at Joe's and we enjoyed our visit as much as the first. Great food, drinks, and service. It's a quick drive from the low-rise area where we were staying. Overall a fun place to eat and enjoy some good drinks. I added another T-Shirt to my list as well.

While shopping in downtown, we asked a shopkeeper where a good place to eat would be. She pointed us to Iguana Joe's. Overall I would give it a 3.5 but closer to a 4 than a 3. Service was friendly but slow.... the food was good but not great... Overall I would keep trying new places before considering going back.... More
