We (family) had lunch and dinner quite a few times and I have to say it is one of the best restaurants in Oxford. Good food, good ambience and excellent service!!

We got in to find not only was our reserved table still full, but we couldn't sit anywhere and the bar staff were reluctant to serve us. After 20 minutes and very expensive cocktails later we sat down. Luckily our waitress Gee was lovely but the rest of the time the staff looked like they didn't even want to be... More

We took our daughter here for her 18th and first cocktail, unfortunately we didn't take ID (our fault). She was accompanied by both parents, 10 year old sister and 25 year old cousin, it was 5.30 in the afternoon and Tuesday, so hardly a group staggering in after a session on Friday night at 11pm. The waiter was sympathetic and... More

Thank you for your feedback. Unfortunately the law is not flexible and penalties for serving under age guests are rightly harsh. Our policy right across the company is that we do not serve any alcohol to anyone under the age of 18 and will request ID using either Challenge 21 or Challenge 25 depending on the branch. We clearly state... More

After a long day training we were heading into Oxford town centre when it began to rain. We decided to pop into Las Iguanas to avoid the shower. Best decision we made. We received a very friendly welcome and the service was excellent. Thoroughly recommend the Tapas - best one I have tasted outside of Spain. Portions are very generous... More

3 of us went on a Saturday night for some food and cocktails, the menu has a lot of variety and the choice and taste of cocktails were fantastic! Although it was very busy (there were two big tables of hen do's) our service was still very good. The food was a hot, very tasty and very good portion sizes.... More

We waited over 20 minutes before anyone even approached our table. When he FINALLY did he was very moody. After that the service got even slower, our cocktails were watery and one of the drinks with missed. We had 3 different waiters and nobody seemed to know what was going on. We even waited almost 30 minutes just to pay?... More

Thank you for your feedback. We have run an alternative happy hour at the Oxford branch for quite some time as our local customers preferred the lower pricing flexibility- I'm sorry if you were disappointed not to be able to enjoy 2 for 1 although this is still available at most other branches. I'd be pleased to ask our area... More

My friends and I visited this restaurant for dinner. The place had a very good ambience, friendly service and good food. They have an item in their dessert, which is similar to a doughnut (forgot its exact name) and would definitely recommend it.

Visited yesterday at about 2pm. Sat straight away on a table for 2 by window. Ordered 5 tapas for £24 - great price and a large bottle of sangria to share. Waited about 6 minutes for drink to arrive, but waitress very friendly and atmosphere in restuarant lovely. Music great. When tapas arrived we were blown away by presentation as... More
