I have always been a fan of las iguanas, and have visited several, however this one really lets it down, ok it was a busy Friday night but our whole eating experience was rushed, we had eaten our bread board before our drinks arrived, when our mains arrived they looked and tasted like they had been thrown together, the servers...

Visited a few times for dinner, and both the food and the service are always excellent. Enchiladas and dulce de leche and macademia cheescake are the best in my opinion. Cocktails are disappointing though - they taste like fruit juice! I wouldn't mind paying more (e.g. not 2x1 happy hour deal), but actually get to taste some alcohol! I was... More

Very enjoyable late afternoon visit here prior to a theatre trip in the evening. Starters really piquant - loved the dadinhos with chilli jelly (cheesy cubes), nachos and bread board. Mains also flavourful, burritos, enchiladas and tacos all went down well. And with two-for-one cocktails the adults round the table did full justice to two pitchers of Long Island Iced... More

Booked for 9pm by 9.15 no drinks or food order taken. Sharing planks nice. Main courses very small and tortilla burnt on two of the four dishes. Staff argued in the back as to who was going to help the deliveroo man with his takeaway delivery. Wouldn't visit this chain again. Shame was looking forward to it.

Lovely cocktails as always but the standard of food has definitely gone down. I had the enchiladas which were tasty, but could have done with being cooked for longer, and the salad my friend had was unpleasantly spicy. Staff were friendly but service was very slow - so slow that I had to cancel my dessert because I needed to... More
