Iguana Joe's is a great spot for a less expensive meal than the hotels nearby have to offer and overlooks the courtyard area of palm plaza so you may also be able to watch a show while dining.

We were not impressed. Waiters was not the friendliest and she gave us wrong price for the beer my husband ordered. My food was lousy and my husband enjoyed his - although very small portions Went there mainly to buy a shirt.

Nice second level open air street scene ambiance in downtown Oranjestad overlooking one of the small harbors. It's truly amazing how incredibly inconsiderate service can ruin an experience.

I have to tell you the nachos were some of the BEST I have ever had. A couple friends joined us and totally agreed. It's a pretty big order too... More

Had our dinner at this place. They have good drinks and great food! I had the chicken and my wife had fish, both were really good. Not sure about the price now, but I think we spent around 60 dollars

Outstanding nachos, right in downtown Aruba. If you're docked at the port you can walk here in just a few minutes. Nice laid back atmos. Sangria is delicious too.

My husband had the best gumbo ever. My grouper tacos were fantastic. We sat at the bar for our lunch and the service we received from our bartender was top notch, I'm just sorry I don't remember his name.

This was the second time that my wife and I ate here and we just love the food, the service and the atmosphere. Drinks are great and so is the second story view. Don't miss it.

We ate lunch here when our ship pulled into port on April 6th. Walking around in the sun it was very hot and while Iguana Joe's is a completely open restaurant it was surprisingly comfortable. The staff was so nice! And, the food was delicious!!!!
