There was a group of 15 of us, food was great, the staff checked on us periodically to make sure we were happy or if drinks were needed. Our food come at the same time which was nice. The food was slow coming out but all in all it was a lovely evening. I would visit again

Admittedly it was a crazy busy Friday night and we were ignored at first about getting a table. The waitress was not at all impressed to have us there, however we did get our meals and the cashier who delivered them was so bubbly and bright - his attitude made us feel a little more welcome. Wide selection on the... More

We were part of a group of 10 people, there for an early evening meal. The staff showed us to our reserved table and soon took our drinks order. Friendly staff that checked on us every so often. Meals all came out together were tasty and well cooked. (Desserts were very tasty also). Pretty standard prices for this kind of... More

Good range on the menu and good value. Iguana has been around a long time and is still a good place to go.

We tried a few places on a wet Sunday evening at 5.15 - one place looked very sour that we did not have a reservation - wasnt at all populated then or later after dinner! We ended up at the Iguana to find that Sunday is specials night - plates and cocktails $7 - definitely value for money - seriously... More

Went for lunch but wait staff Junior completely ignored us. After 30min we ended up complaining and leaving. The issue here was the waiter who didn't communicate the cause of the delay until after we had got up to leave. Lunch service was disappointing.

At the start of the year I visited this restaurant, I gave it 3 stars even though everything is good. Once again everything was good, service was quality with good chatter. Had to improve my rating, especially when you compare surrounding restaurants.
