“Good Food”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

I liked this place! The service was excellent, even though they were crowded. I had the ribs. My BF had the jerk chicken. The food and drinks were very tasty. We sat close to the balcony to people watch. Overall, it was a good experience and within walking distance to our hotel Enjoy!

“Open air people watchers delight!”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

This "comfort food" restaurant is on the second floor of a shopping mall overlooking a busy downtown street. The food is good, the portions are generous and the prices are reasonable. The service was average this year 2013, but in the past years it has been very good. The picture in the add shows a native dish which I believe is called keshiyana. The original version was composed of shredded goat meat baked in a small hollowed out Gouda cheese wheel. Their version is shredded chicken with the classic native spices smothered with Gouda in casserole. While you watch the people on the street try a "Pink Lizzard". The drink will sneak up on you so be careful!

“A Fun Restaurant with Great Views”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

We always go to Joe's when we visit Aruba. Located on the second floor, this open air restaurant is a great spot for a casual meal and good drinks and great views when the cruise ships are in. The four of us shared three generous appetizers. The West Indian Pastechies are delicious and my personal favorite. We also enjoyed the cheese and calaloo dip and a huge portion of Igua-Na-Chos. Good local beer and delicious, fruity Sangria completed our meal.

“Casual, Great views”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

Stopped in for lunch. There were 5 of us and we each had a different item and everyone enjoyed their choice. Drinks were not only good but generous in size, which is rare in Aruba.
Food, service, view...well done.
