Went for a late supper, certainly not expecting to find a great little Mexican-themed restaurant with the best margaritas (cheap too!) Really friendly service, good food at a reasonable price, and an open air venue that really does evoke the feeling of a cantina.

We have been several times and really looked forward to dinner here. We have had positive experiences here in the past. Food and service both great. This time it was much different. I don't like to write negative reviews, but want to be honest in my reviews. We arrived on Wednesday about 7:15 or so, we waited about 15 minutes... More

We ate here two years ago and it was excellent. We were eager to return on this trip and again, we enjoyed everything. The service was very good. We had fajitas, burritos, and chimichangas. The food was very fresh, well cooked, and nicely presented. We will definitely go back!

We visited the restaurant last week August 10th or 12th and the food was awesome!! Our waiter, Gabriel was outstanding! He took care of our every need, brought our food right away. The food was excellent and the drinks were superb! But the service and overall atmosphere was great. We had eaten at the sister restaurant(Iguana Joe's) the day before... More

We've been here a few times as it's nice to have different types of food in a more than week-long vacation. I would say that the food quality is average and satisfactory, but nothing to shout about. We've ordered the salads, burritos, ceviches and fajitas. Dining is pretty much open air but if you don't get seated at the balcony,... More

We were traveling with 4 other couples. The first night we arrived we decided to go to this restaurant as it was close to the villa we were renting. We arrived at the restaurant about 930. Our party of 10 was turned away as it was 39 minutes before closing. Two nights later we tried again this time as a... More

We often come here when we are in Aruba and decided to visit this time. Had to wait about 20 minutes for a table at 8pm but a good sign that they are busy. We got a great table at the edge overlooking the fountains which is the best place to sit. The service we got from Gabriel was really... More

Located in Paseo Herencia, this place has great Mexican food. It overlooks the courtyard of a shopping center where there is a fabulous water show at 7:30, 8:30 and 9:30 PM.

My wife and I found this Mexican place in the mall area down from the Hilton. Good chunky salsa and crisp chips with a fajitas chicken platter. Cold beer and good service.
