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.

we went on Saturday, it was very busy. huge selection of food and a separate vegi menu. plate would benefit from side salads rather than a load of chips/curlies. we were cold from the draft so would recommend sitting round the corner. we also had regular whiff of toilet cleaner, but this was due to seating near the loos. toilets...

I think this review is needed to identify when places do that little bit more to please, this restaurant had changed the menu and one particular item which I really enjoyed had been replaced. I asked 'Liv' our waitress if they had stopped doing the particular meal she agreed they had but went and asked the Manager who agreed they... More

Very impressive vegetarian choice-approx 5 different dishes -not just the usual boring tomato pasta etc I had the coconut curry with palm hearts, delicious! Good portion size, teracotta warmer, good value for money and two for one cocktails at happy hour! Only complaints are that it was cold sitting at the back near the door and there was no light...

I was part of a group booking last Friday. Approximately 12 of us were booked in at 7pm. Service was so very slow...it took approximately 2 hours for main courses to arrive. Plenty of smaller tables had been and gone in this time. When food did arrive, one of the waiters was incredibly brusque. As for the food itself-it was... More

I visited this Las Iguanas restaurant recently on an evening after a long day at Uni, with my friend for a quick bite to eat. As a vegetarian, I often have little choice from the menu but Las Iguanas was a completely new experience for me... A separate vegan and veggie menu to choose from. The young lady who served...

Had to wait ages at the bar to get our first drinks as there was only one bar staff. The drinks were great the staff member... More

Me and my work colleagues visited here recently for a "staff party". The food was excellent and all tasted fresh and was presented beautifully. The service was attentive and you wanted for nothing. Quite a lot of us had never been before and have all said we can't wait to bring our partners and family's back, the restaurant looked great... More
