Good food and service

This is the birthplace of the Las Iguanas chain and feels a lot less corporate than some of their newer branches. On our visit, the food was good and service attentive.

Sister in law asked to swap tortilla for fries.her food was brought... More

A very big (slightly belated) thank you to the whole team who looked after us so well when we had our team Christmas lunch here on 17th December. There were about 40 of us, food was tasty and the service was excellent. Everyone felt so well looked after and had a great time. I was meant to be organising it... More

Great choice for our Christmas meal. Group of 20 people proved no trouble as attentive, helpful staff showed they knew what they were doing and cared about their customers. Food-wise the starters and mains were excellent, perhaps overshadowing the desserts which were only average. Cocktails were very good, the happy hour menu proving popular. Quality of the service was memorable... More

We had delicious encheladas and were served by lovely staff. I do hope that they get all the tips we give as I'd heard nasty rumours that Las Iguanas kept them to themselves. I hope this isn't the case.

This is a good restaurant for a chain - the cocktails were very good. The food was OK - but as I say, it's a chain so I actually got better than I expected. Well done.

I have been recently to Las iguanas multiple times ! Where I was well greeted and handled with care by the staff ! Specifically a young man called Thiago! I was also very happy with the deals and discount and the manager junior also left quite an impression! I was astounded by my experience overall !!

I was recently at the Las Iguanas Restaurant on Whiteladies in Bristol for dinner with my friends and I thoroughly enjoyed the vibrant and welcome atmosphere and the great Brazilian food the serve there. One waiter in particular (Thiago I think was his name) was very welcoming and friendly. I thoroughly recommend this place to anyone who wants a relaxing... More
