Our first night in New Zealand, our hotel owner recommended this restaurant, but warned that they would be celebrating the opening of the scallop season with a special festival. We went and enjoyed trying the scallops at the many scallop stations and then we ordered a gourmet pizza. Even though the restaurant was very busy with the festival, the service... More

I enjoyed a $12 lunch which included a small pizza (about 150cm?), garden salad and a few chunky fries.(9 fries in total equivalent in volume to a Mac Donalds small fries). The pizza and garden salad were tasty. service was very good

Humans are creatures of habit, so we went back here after 10 years since our last visit and enjoyed yet another great meal. Thank you. Attentive but not overly so, variety of food options, loved the cup of seafood chowder.

IF you do nothing else have the dessert platter! Iguana has a lovely ambience, relaxed atmosphere, and even though we were late diners, we did not feel rushed out the door. Reasonable prices, and we left feeling very satisfied. We would definitely return here.

An interesting and very bubbly spot, there is lots of seating and lots of guests so not for a romantic evening but if you want to be in the midst of it all - perfect. There is a seating area for group bookings so if you are organising a work funtion etc this could be the place for you. The... More

I don't frequent Iguana very much anymore due to past experiences, and this visit was similar to previous ones. We decided to eat at Iguana as there wasn't alot of choice in regards to what was open on a Monday night. We had a colleague from Wellington here so needed to take him out for dinner. The restaurant was not... More

This place is a favorite of my friends and I can see why. Service was good as well as the food. Had the chilli lime prawns over pasta. Very yummy. The salads were huge and looked tasty. Could easily go back.
