I’ve visited las iguanas newport on the past with no issue so when friends recommended the bottomless brunch option currently advertised, we felt this was a good option. Part of our party not drinking accommodated and food good. However, we were told about the ‘clock’...(90 minutes) and our first orders of cocktails went in with them being received a reasonable five minutes later. Our next order of drinks resulted in over a ten minute wait which then caused a bit of frustration as we were sat with empty glasses for some time, not feeling we were getting the ‘bottomless’ option we were paying for. All continued ok as we ensured we ordered our next drinks before we finished our current ones though we inevitable still sat with empty glasses in between. Had the venue been busy we would have understood a little, but there were many empty tables and seemingly insufficient staff for the tables occupied. The point came when I ordered another cocktail as one was delivered (I had ‘small’ cocktails so they didn’t take long to finish) and I was told that I had to finish the one I had first. I explained that we had been waiting for long periods for other orders and the server remarked ‘I’ll need to check how many you’ve had’ (I didn’t hear this but a friend did). I understand there’s a right to refuse serving but we had only consumed 4 drinks at this point and had been sat at the table for over an hour, plus we’re still waiting for our mains (which finally arrived at 3.15pm of our 2pm 1.5 hour booking). No one was loud/drunk/misbehaving so I and my friends were quite offended by this remark. Needless to say, the drink didn’t turn up and I was again left looking at the bottom of my glass at a bottomless brunch for a good ten minutes. Although I felt the food and drink for this ‘deal’ was ok, I did not think it it was any sort of bargain and would not recommend this option to anyone. It has also put me off visiting in the future. Luckily, I had great company and enjoyed the food and drink that I had, it just wasn’t the bottomless experience advertised.More

Great time was had by all. Friendly efficient staff. Didnt have to wait too long for drinks or food. The cocktails ate absolutely gorgeous but not strong. Food was very tasty. We all enjoyed ourselves
