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.

Quick lunch

Think we arrived after a busy lunch period. Upon arrival there was several empty tables but we were given a 10 minute wait but didn't wait as long as that. However that was the only downside to a lovely quick lunch, we ate from the tapas menu and ordered 5 dishes, all of which were beautiful. The... read more

As a fairly strict Veggie (No Animal or Eggs) I was happy to find a restaurant that had taken not only the time and effort to consider dietary requirements, but takes the care to have separately prepared menus and staff that know the food on them. The staff are all well trained and are encouraged to try all the dishes... More

We decided to visit Las Iguanas during the bank holiday, we were served and seated quickly despite it being busy and not having a reservation and we were told about the food/drinks offers. The cocktails were really good so we took full advantage of the 2-for-1 offer. The food was better than the Leeds Las Iguanas but overall I'd say... More

Went for late lunch with my son on a Saturday afternoon. Seated and served quickly by friendly staff. Food choice was varied and quality was very good. Drinks menu was extensive. As this type of family dining experience goes this was best I have had for a long time.

Went there a lot of time. But last week I went with 20 of my friends for birthday celebration. Okay first of all, they greeted all of us very friendly and I really liked how systematic they are with taking our orders. Once the foods arrived, there are zero mistakes in the quantities and the foods itself. They even don't... More

A friend suggested this restaurant, food was nice and drinks were also well done, but the tables were a mess, they hadn't been cleaned since they opened I suppose. There were no tablecloths, we had our elbows on the table, our shirt got stuck to it and left a mark on it, if touched it felt greasy and sticky. The... More

I went for my birthday expecting to receive 20% student discount. I told everyone we should go there because of that (as it is quite expensive) but when we ordered we were told by the manager it wasn't possible as the till was down. (Even though i'm pretty sure a manager could have voided meals to make the equivalent etc).... More

After my first experience at a las iguanas in london for my birthday I was abit cynical about coming to this one! I took my sister and we loved it , prompt service and the waitress was warm and friendly. Could not fault the food and the cocktails were lovely. A night that left us smiling :) brilliant staff x

I'm not a massive fan of Mexican but my friends wanted to go for one of the girls' birthday. What can I say? I had a great time. The customer service was brilliant, really friendly and warm. I had a much better time than I thought. It isn't always just about the food after all, it's about the experience too!... More
