I ate here twice and my friend went back a third time. Our first visit was great - enchiladas (shredded chicken) and fish tacos were yum. The second time we tried different enchiladas (pieces of chicken vs. shredded) and they were the worst ever. Not only that but the service was terrible. The manager finally made it right but it...

One of the best meals I had while in aruba. The chips and salsa are amazing. The nachos are very good as well and the stuffed shrimp was awesome. We ordered drinks that were very good and not too pricey. My only gripe was that our waitress was pretty slow for my taste. Other than that I and everyone I... More

Very loud place, despite having few empty tables when we got there, we had to wait about 20 minutes to be seated. Then again we waited about one hour to have our dinner. Food was just OK, no more, no less. Music + fountain music + staff coming out of the kitchen yelling was too much noise for one single... More

Atmosphere was fun and open air concept was nice with the breeze. We were charged to refill the soda even though we were not aware it was not a free refill. Cool fountain show on the... More

Iguana Cantina has been one of those places that go to when we want a casual easy dinner and once again it did not disappoint. It's typical Mexican faire and this time was the perfect spot for our first night. Our waiter Jorge was GREAT!! He had the best sense of humor & provided a relaxing fun dinner after what... More

So for our last dinner on the island we chose the Iguana Cantina. People looked satisfied leaving so we said go for it. To start chips and salsa. The salsa was fresh, not hot. My wife liked it. I could have used a little more heat. We ordered steak fajitas and shrimp fajitas. Both were tasty but a little spiceless... More

We had chicken that was unrecognizable. They did take it off the bill. The nacho's were under a heat lamp or baked too long. Cocktails were good

Atmosphere was great. Prices were fine. Service was excellent - Jorge was great! Food was not good though - watery salsa, bland guacamole, dry carnitas.
