Great for Groups

Had a large xmas function here - the service, staff and food were great and would highly recommend. Can easily cater for a group of 60 odd in the private area out the back. We had a set menu, however they were more than happy to cater for those with special dietary needs. Only criticism is the... read more

After serious disappointment last night at a high rated restaurant I decided to go to a place that looked good. I wasn't disappointed. Massive place with ample seating for everyone, small groups and large groups. Food was great, great service.

It is quite a good place to go for groups, but beware the pizza, it has too much seasoning on it. Both my husband and myself had one of the pizzas and there was way too much seasoning on. The restaurant does have a good system for large groups, well thought out if everyone is paying for their own meal.

Nice spot in downtown Hamilton. Service was good and food was average. Nice place to sit outside and enjoy a beautiful day.

We chose this at random (didn't know there were so many places to choose from Hamilton). Sunday night but reasonably busy. Our waitress was incredible so much so that I gave a generous tip which is pretty much a rarity, not because I'm stingy but I felt she absolutely deserved it she was that good. The food and drinks we... More

I've been eating at this place since 1997 and I've got to say it's gone down hill. The staff and service was just OK. The food, 4 out of 5 of our meals came out cold. I have to say the worst thing is looking into the kitchen and looking at sweaty bearded cooks.. No good. If you're going to... More

Iguana is a great place for family dining. The food is great -- we ordered pizzas. The atmosphere was pleasant and appropriate for our family.

My husband and I have been on the hunt for hamilton's best chicken cranberry pizza. So far iguana is winning so far! Though the wait for our food was long, we were advised of this and updated by wait staff regularly. Pizza was definitely worth the wait. We now often grab it as a takeaway on the way home from...
