Margaritas, taco salad were great. I had better fish tacos at my hotel restaurant so i was a tad disappointed. Overall good location, good food but make sure once you catch the server you order it all at once, its hard to get the server back on your table once she is off for drinks etc.

The place was really crowded but this did not affect the service. Fresh chips with salsa were provided as soon as we sat down, Mojitos and Aruba arriba were delicious - only one brain freeze. I had fish tacos which were great. My husband had combo tacos and was very happy. Good food, reasonable price. Pleasant waitress ! All pluses

The surprise was the view, we had a table overlooking the fountains in the mall. First two acoustical violinists put on a show with pleasant dining music and then came the malls light and fountain show, a really nice... More

Both my wife enjoyed the unlimited fajita option ($1 more) hot and tasty. As we were seated along the railing on the second floor, we had an excellent view for the synchronized water fountain and floor below. Service was great as were the margaritas, however we opted for the Patron version which increased the bottom line a few bucks, but... More

We've been in Aruba for 4 days and have witnessed really slow service in several places. Miguel Angel at the Iguana Cantina, Palm Beach provided exceptional service, and the food was outstanding as well. We had unexpected entertainment of a dance and fountain show from the plaza below. Would highly recommend visiting there during your trip to Aruba.

Our family of 3 enjoyed our dinner here. Service was excellent, our food came very quickly and our waitress was very friendly. We had a view of the fountain show in the courtyard below. Sangria was tasty, tortilla chips were homemade and we all enjoyed our dinners very much.
