“Great Caribbean lunch with a view”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

Great Caribbean Bar & Grill. Always a favorite lunch stop when we do a little shopping in Oranjestad. They are not kidding, the Hurricane Joe will wipe out any tropical depression and more than two will wipe you out. Great starters, especially the wings and quesadillas. Service is always friendly, but can sometimes be a little slow, but who is in a rush in Aruba.They are located on the second floor and have great outdoor covered seating overlooking the main road and harbor.

“Good food, great location!”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

We ate there on June 13, 2014, and we liked it very much. Chicken fajitas were very good, and my kids loved their mac & cheese. Service was pretty good, and the prices aren't too bad. We especially love the view of downtown Aruba from the eating area!

“Balcony view”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

Really enjoyed sitting up on the balcony here, looking down on the commotion below. We didn't eat, as we already had lunch on the cruise ship, but ordered a few local beers and wrote out our postcards. A waiter lended us his pen which was kind of him as we didn't have one. great atmosphere, aroma, and very popular for food.

Definitely not a fancy place to eat but good food and atmosphere. Loved the pink lemonade. We all had something different and everyone liked their food.

“Best Caribbean meal”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

we ate in Iguana Joes as part of the Aruba Dine Around Programme. the server was very friendly and we were seated overlooking the main street. was nice to wartch the world go by whilst enjoing our food. be noted, the portions are massive! the food is fab, very tasty not too fancy but not scrimping on the quality. Sangria to drink was nice and the restaurant was fairly busy for an early Friday evening. all in all great meal, you need to bring an Iguana Joes to Scotland brighten the place up!!
