We visited the evening of 11/19. The food was good, they were very busy, and the service was a tad slow (due to the number of diners no doubt). Drinks were good. Its a bit on the noisy side, in part because the seating overlooks the central square in the mall that hosts a fountain show in the evening. So... More

Iguana Cantina is a very friendly place with good food. It's open air, and a little warm if you aren't near the railing. The mahi mahi fajitas are very good, and very filling. Desserts looked good, but we were too full to try one. Th pitcher of sangria was a good bargain.

The location was great. Outdoor seating on the second story. Could watch the water show in the mall stage area. Drinks were good. Food was nothing to write home about. Very salty. Very Americanized. Slow service.

Dont waste your money here. If you have a Cantina you must master a couple of things Margaritas and Salsa. The Iguana Cantina did neither. On top of that the service was horrible!! Also I am so used to tipping, I left a tip by mistake! The waitress did not even check on me once until I had to get... More

Food was fantastic . View over looking the water works and nightly shows is beautiful. Service was good but, beware if a manager named Milton is working. He is the nastiest person on the island. Same owner as Smokey Joe's.

Enjoyed the jalapeno cheese dip and quesadillas! The chips and salsa were excellent and the swirls were great! Sara was an excellent waitress, will definitely return on our next visit to Aruba :)

We ate dinner here last night. It was very good. We got free margarita thanks to a coupon from one of the magazines . Monday night is $2 island beer night so that was a hit with me. We had mixed grill fajitas and tacos were $2 each. All the food was very good served piping hot. The chip and... More

A little disappointed. Chips were very flat...no taste. Salsa average. And queso was melted Cheeze-whiz!
