5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2015 NEW

A large group of us cane with the University and had a brilliant lunch. As a coeliac and vegetarian I wasn't expecting much but was surprised to see they could cater for me on the menu we were meant to go for. I had the vegetarian chilli, which was delicious, and everyone else's lunch looked really inviting. Although I didn't... More

Ok, the service was fine. Drinks: The cocktails aren't worth the money; just drink tap water. They're just hugely diluted sugar water, obviously an attempt to save money and it hasn't gone unnoticed. Food: Oh. My. God. Completely inedible, COMPLETELY INEDIBLE. I honestly couldn't even tell you what I had been served, it looked like diarrhea (sorry, but it did),... More

Visited this restaurant last night and well, what more could I ask for? Yes it's not that near the centre of Bristol but was well worth the short trip. From when I walked in I was given a very warm welcome from the staff all who seemed bubbly and hospitable. The atmosphere is cosy but still lively and feels more... More

This restaurant has gone downhill since Jimmy the manager left. Sloppy service and left waiting ages for orders and drinks. Luckily the food remains the same.

We were picking up our daughter from Bristol University and popped in for a meal at Las Iguanas. We had previously visited the sister restaurant in Wembley and had a good meal there and so were keen to return. The ambience in the Clifton restaurant is more intimate and has a laid back feel which obviosly appeals to students who... More

We recently had a large club dinner where we booked the entire restaurant. It was a fantastic evening and we will definitely be coming back to las iguanas, not just as a club, but as individuals as well after such a lovely evening! The food was fantastic, and despite the large number of us the service was prompt and all... More

Had a great time tonight again. Thank Guys, food was great and the music was cool. Sad to see the Chimichanga has gone. It was a favourite. See you soon!

Went here on friday night, had a spicy peri peri half chicken which was very nice, followed by a caramel cake which was amazing. The whole thing was slightly let down however by the speed of the service.

Just got home from a great night at Las Iguanas. The service set the bar high for other restaurants, and the food was amazing, with plenty of choice and the staff are knowledgable, friendly and helpful! Will definitely be returning. :-)
