Not bad for the price and nice atmosphere, but the taste is kinda bland overall. Even if the size of meal is generous, you get bored of the flavor pretty quickly.

Visited two Iguana bar/restaurants on a recent visit to Helsinki, Mannerheimintie and Kaisaniemenkatu, near the rail station. Both were staffed by friendly, helpful bar staff, both were very good value, both had a relaxed feel. Iguana is not the place for a special restaurant experience, and to be fair, you wouldn't expect it to be from the outside, but for... More

It is a good choice to go and have drinks with friends. The food is ok, and the snacks are good as well.

We wanted to eat at Morrison just in front of Iguana but is was fully booked and lots of families with little kids. We ran out. Luckily Iguana was a better choice. Cool staff, ordering at the bar and pay before you eat. Crowded with mainly young people. Fajitas beef and beef burger were both delicious. Very big meals. Would... More

In the center of Helsinki there is quit few lunch buffets. Here you can eat as much as you can for 10 euros. Tex-mex style options, pizza slices and also other choises such as (when visiting) chicken kiev, rice, curry sauce, falafel, potatoes etc. Not A´la carte standards but tasty basic food.

We walked by the Mannerheimvägen branch of this restaurant (there were three that we saw in Helsinki) and decided to give it a go. Food and drinks were very reasonably priced considering it's in the city centre and service came quickly and efficiently. Take your pick from pizza, burritos and pasta dishes.

I simply don't comprehend how anyone rated this place higher than a 1 or 2 star. For starters, this restaurant doesn't know what it is; burritos, pizza, hamburgers, sports bar, regular bar...pick one and do it well. As for the food, if you've never eaten proper Mexican food, then maybe Iguana's food is OK...at best. Having eaten at, let's say... More
