Looks nice from the outside but didn't find either the service or the food to be exceptional in anyway. Not that it was bad but simply nothing special.

Arriving late evening in Helsinki we found everything, including our hotel's restaurant closed so walked down to the town center. Out hotel concierge recommended Iguana. The place is more of a bar that serves food so we were a little sceptical going in but it turned out superb. Very friendly people and great service. Iguana platter was awesome and so... More

Had the supreme nachos, a few chips ( handful at best) with fake cheese, some tomato sauce, meet, onions and olives for 13 euros. A good place to drink, but the food is lacking. Do not know why I went for Mexican in Helsinki. Not my best idea. :(

Good service. The food was quickly delivered. The food was average. The salsa tasted too much tomato and was not home made and nor was the guacamole. How I know? Well if you've been to south of USA you just get the best home made salsas. It does not take much to make it! I had the chicken fajita. I... More

I stopped by with some friends for a bit of wining and dining. I had heard there was a good and surprisingly cheap Mexican restaurant in Central Helsinki, so I wanted to go see what the fuss was about before the place would get too crowded. The place has a great atmosphere and they have a good winelist with a... More

Excellent restaurant in the middle of Helsinki. Huge portion sizes and friendly staff. €50 for a two-course meal for two which is very good value for Helsinki. Burritos and Fajitas delicious.

I had the basic hamburger-meal, which was ok in itself, though I didnt really enjoy the fries. Service was very friendly and the taco-sallad my girlfriend had was really nice, so we will likely be returning here..

There are 3 Iguana restaurants in Helsinki city center that I know of or been to and my favourite one remains to be Iguana Mannerheimintie. Its cozy with a nice atmosphere and the staff is very welcoming. I've eated in this restaurant so many times and there's nothing to complain about, the food is good and fresh.
