Sit outside, order a drink and watch the Queen Emma Bridge and the massive ships.
We ordered drinks, service was fast and efficient.

We went on a weekday afternoon

“do not wait for change...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2013 via mobile

Be prepared to pay exact amount. ...We were there twice and both times, they had us wait over 30 minutes for our change... Guess they hope you leave with 50% tip or more..? Place is nice, good view, nice pictures to be taken...

“Live Music & 2 for 1 Drinks”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2013

Great location - Comfortable outside seating with a picturesque view of the Queen Emma Bridge doing its thing! Wonderful live music the lady singer sounded like Whitney Houston and the group were very entertaining. 2 for 1 drinks so great value. Can recommend the Blue Curacao Margherita's. Attentive service. Will definitely be returning soon.

“An Outdoor Restaurant Right Along the Canal!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2013

The Iguana Cafe menu is comparable to the food at The Hard Rock Cafe. This is an outdoor restaurant that sits along the canal on the Punda side of Willemstad,the capital city of Curacao. The prices are average according to American standards. They offer the typical burgers,chicken,fish and salads. After a day of shopping along the adjacent streets,it's a great place to unwind,have a drink and a bite to eat. Watch the ships go back and forth as the Queen Emma Bridge opens and closes for them- making this a popular place for tourists.

“Great place to have a few drinks and take it all in!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2013

The real estate that this place sits on is unbeatable! We sat out on a Saturday night before "Carnival" and the place was hoppin' with live music and of course the best view of the Otrabanda side. The food is really just "okay". If I did it again, I would just enjoy the drinks!
