We just returned from a week in Cape Coral, Florida and we ate at Iquana Mia twice. The food was authentic Mexican and it tasted great. Fresh chips and salsa were provided and the chips were warm and the salsa fresh. The specials were very good as well as old favourites like fajitas and tacos did not disappoint. Beer was... More

We stopped here on our way through and were pleasantly surprised. We had a large margarita and taco salads for lunch. They have several salsa varieties available as well. The only reason I do not give them 5 stars is we wanted a refill on our drinks and the server disappeared. Also we asked for the specialty chipotle ranch dressing... More

My wife was desperate to try Iguana Mia. She is vegetarian and wanted something apart from the side dishes at the usual meat eateries the rest of the family enjoy. I'm glad we did. We went in without a reservation and asked for a table, it was busy but put our names on the waiting list. We were told 20... More

Have lived in Cape Coral since 1992, and Iguana Mia's has been around almost as long. It's historically the go-to restaurant for Mexican in this area. The (free) salsa is to die for, and the menu is very extensive. It's hard to decide because everything looks (and tastes) delicious. Have never had a problem with service or an order in... More

I really, really wanted to like this place. We got takeout from there on the day we moved into our new place in Cape Coral. The wait even to order the takeout was almost 10 minutes, and the food took another half hour, but I figured that was just because they were really busy that day. (It was Cinco de... More

Giant margaritas, excellent burritos and chimichangas served with unusual sides like fried yucca, garlic zucchini and lard free refrained beans of several choices. Also some more unusual menu offerings. Staff was pleasant and ready to please. Cost was reasonable. If you are in the mood for Mexican give Iguana Mia a try.

We had lunch here on vacation. We arrived on a weekday at noon. There was no one in the restaurant which should have been our first clue. We were seated on the patio and our server seemed to forget about us because it took at least 15 minutes to order. Then another 20 for the food to arrive. Food was... More

Dinners seemed to be warmed up in microwave...Drinks were tasty, but not good enough to overlook the average tasting Mexican fare.

I enjoyed my meal, and the outside deck is great for the beautiful days in the cape. $.99 Margaritas on Mondays draws me right in. I love the menu choices and the people are friendly. All the servers help one another which is nice
