Good Value and food

Visited Iguana after a mess up with a booking at another nearby restaurant (our mistake!) without a prior booking. Very full for a Thursday evening but immediately seated. Comprehensive menu (look on both sides) and went for two medium sized pizzas - great value but glad we did not go for the... read more

Pastas are boring and overpriced. Hardly any vege options. Pizzas looked pretty good though, piled with toppings. A side seasonal vegetables was all carrots, with two pieces of broccoli. Side of fries is $10!!!

The menu hasn't changed since we came to this place over 10 years ago! We went for a group dinner, service was good and fast but the overall food and menu is pretty standard - needs a complete review of the menu.

Very disappointing. Iguana has such a neat atmosphere and in the past we have enjoyed the experience.We had a reasonably large party, which had been booked well in advance, so staffing should not have been an issue. Unfortunately is most definitely was on this occasion. An hour after arriving, we were finally asked if we would like drinks. After a... More

Iguana has a neat decor and atmosphere. The food was eclectic and full flavored. The beer menu was limited but complemented the meal. The service was very good. When we return to New Zealand we will definitely come back.
