Walk through the doors of Las Iguanas and find yourself transported to Latin America, full of rich, vibrant colours, quirky features and custom-made wooden mosaic tables made especially for the restaurant from sustainable woods in Brazil. Each restaurant is unique and the staff love bringing unusual things back from their travels, ranging from large lobster sculptures to giant drums. The philosophy of Las Iguanas is to serve delicious and authentic Latin American food and drink in an environment which evokes the very best of Latin life. With recipes dating back to the 16th century, the food successfully fuses native Latin American Indian, Spanish, Portuguese and African influences. Working hard to ensure that everything comes from the best possible source, Las Iguanas is proud of its fresh GM free food and top quality ingredients

Lovely warm atmosphere

The atmosphere in the Restaurant warm and inviting. The staff were brilliant, advising which items were not available and recommending and explaining the dishes on the menu. We had a very enjoyable early dinner at a very reasonable price.

Been to las Iguanas many times now and it been brilliant every time. Staff, service, ambience, food and drinks choice, it's an all rounder. The great thing is they have a separate vegetarian menu and hence lots of choice. My favourite is their Veg Enchiladas. I would recommend to everyone.

Have never visited Las Iguanas but was delighted that the Leicester restaurant was able to seat my partner and I on a busy Friday evening. Lovely welcome, great decor, fantastic vibe. Staff knew all about the dishes as we hadn't tried Brazilian and were a little unsure about the other dishes. Very friendly, happy and attentive staff. The food was... More

It's a great offer five Tapas dishes for £24. With a wide selection to suite any pallet. This was washed down with a Cosmo Cocktail. And at 2, 4, 1,... More

The food and the service are amazing. We have been here a few times and each time the atmosphere is pleasant. The food is always cooled brilliantly and the times we haven't been happy with what was sent out, the staff and the chef were more than happy to replace it. Would recommend!
