10 of us went for a meal last night. Took a while to be seated then we waited for ages to order a drink eventually managing to ask a passing waitress. We then ordered the food and the starters came ok. Eventually our mains arrived, well all apart from mine. After a few minutes the waitress returned to ask me... More

Cocktail expensive with clearly little alcohol in them, service was friendly but slow for drinks. I had chicken burger and for over £11 very average presentation was shocking for amount paid, came away feeling a bit ripped off

When we got there we were put on a table which felt sticky, when pointed out the waitress said that some of the tables were old and the varnish made them feel sticky - but she moved us to a different table which was much better for us. It was very slow at first as we received our starters before... More

I visited this restaurant at 5.30 on a Saturday night. Not particularly busy with fewer than half of the tables occupied. Eventually someone came to greet us. When we asked for a table for 2 we were told there was only 1 table - right at the back, next to 2 large parties. We walked past MANY unoccupied tables -... More

Went here with my husband. Service was appalling. We chose our drinks and the server was insisting that we choose other more expensive drinks even though we politely said "no" at least 3 times. The tables were sticky. It made me feel unclean to rest my arms on the table. I told the server and they said there's nothing they... More

This is fast becoming a firm favourite for my girls night out. The service is always rendered with a smile and the drinks are really reasonable and well made. I enjoy the tapas as well. The ambience is lovely and all in all the place has a really fab vibe.

Description
Walk through the doors of Las Iguanas and find yourself transported to Latin America, full of rich, vibrant colours, quirky features and custom-made wooden mosaic tables made especially for the restaurant from sustainable woods in Brazil. Each restaurant is unique and the staff love bringing unusual things back from their travels, ranging from large lobster sculptures to giant drums. The philosophy of Las Iguanas is to serve delicious and authentic Latin American food and drink in an environment which evokes the very best of Latin life. With recipes dating back to the 16th century, the food successfully fuses native Latin American Indian, Spanish, Portuguese and African influences. Working hard to ensure that everything comes from the best possible source, Las Iguanas is proud of its fresh GM free food and top quality ingredients
