My husband and I were craving some Mexican food for supper after a long day of sightseeing around Helsinki on foot. We sat and sat and sat waiting for a server to come take our order. We almost walked out actually after 10 or 15 mins of no one coming to our table (which was front and center), when finally a waitress took our order. She was very nice (1 point for pleasant staff). They only score a mediocre on cleanliness as well; our table, which had been wiped down, was still really sticky. We decided to split the nachos supreme and have a beer. The cheese was actually that salty nacho cheese sauce, and not real cheese. It effectively turned into soup once it was about half gone. There were effectively zero veggies on it or with it either. It was virtually tasteless (except for salt). A very poor experience overall with respect to the wait time, cleanliness, and taste of the food. We highly recommend finding another restaurant in what is such a restaurant-dense area -- too many choices around to settle for that!

We should have listened the TripAdvisor reviews :) Iguana is the worst Mexican restaurant we have ever been to. The only advantage is that it is open until late hours and if you read the reviews most of the guests were there because of that. If you can't find any other open restaurant in Helsinki, which might happen, Iguana might be a choice but otherwise stay away if you are not starving :)

Knowing how expensive it is to eat in Helsinki, this establishment is great value for money.
My wife opted for chicken pasta, she says it's was very good, alas she didn't finish it as if was too big, I had veg burger, I not a real vegetarian but it was good value and sounded good......I was not dissapointed. Excellent !
Beers. Well they are pretty much standard price throughout Helsinki, for the local brew.
Service was not too bad either.

I took fajitas.Nothing really special, nothing really bad.

The place is quite nice, the service is quite professional.

If you are looking for a decent meal in the centre and you budget is around 15 Euros, you can consider it.
