Description: Liveliness ahoy! Las Iguanas brings a whole lot of Latino spirit to the second floor of Birmingham's Arcadian Centre. There's no mistaking the exotic, fun vibe dancing through this colourful, open plan retreat that attracts a mixed and happy crowd. Bar tables spill outside on to a small veranda with good views of the Arcadian. There are lots of exciting snacks and main meals on offer, from traditional fajitas and enchiladas, to fish specialties and regional dishes such as Argentinean steak, and Cordoro, Colombian-style lamb in coconut milk served with rice. Good veggie options, clearly marked. For a change from a curry or Thai, Las Iguanas is well worth a visit.

“Good food, atmosphere and well priced”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

I have recently been visiting the restaurant with friends normally during a weekends. The atmosphere is lively as it is located in the arcadian, however this has not affected the service provided by staff. The food is value for money and good quality food. To add the food is halal which enables all different communities to come and enjoy the food. Will definately go back again!

“Always a pleasure”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

I just love the flaming bird from this place. We had a nice reserved table in the corner with the comfy seating which is so much better than the main seating area as it is more private.

dessert was delicious too, so all around a great time

“Good service, decent food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013 via mobile

Went to Las Iguanas while away on business. Very friendly service once inside, but the greeter at the door seemed a little perplexed at a customer walking in. Menu was good and pretty varied - lots more choices than I remember from my last visit to a Las Iguanas. I had the calamari, delivered extremely quickly and very tasty and then the chicken chimichanga - again, great flavours which suggested the chef cared about the food rather than following instructions as part of a chain. I would definitely go back.
