I work in hospo myself. I know how it is. But when you don't get offered water, food takes almost an hour to come out (with a poor attitude/reason as to why), and payment takes 15 minutes to do a 3 way split, you can't help but wonder why I didn't trust the reviews on about them prior to dining...

The last 3 times I have been to Iguana (over the space of this year) the food has been amazing but the service has been terrible. It took an hour for us to get our drinks that we ordered & nearly an hour & a half to get our breads and dips. Fair enough if they were very busy, but... More

Visited here with a few friends for dinner on the 22/11. We arrived around 8pm and made our own way to a seat as it didn't look like anyone would show us to a table after waiting a couple of minutes near the entrance cash till. After five minutes we had to get someones attention by going up and asking... More

We dined here as a group of 8 on a Friday night. Place wasn't overly busy. We had an awesome waitress - she was friendly, efficient, took the time to explain any menu choices etc and interacted well with us. Meals arrived pretty quickly after ordering. I got the Fish of the Day, which was Hapuka and it was nice.... More

We dined here on $6. dessert night, so the place was humming. My salad was so tasty and fresh. The croissant Ice Cream was yummy and I highly recommend. The service was a little slack , due to it being so busy.

We haven't been to Iguana for a while due to a bad dinner experience we had. But it popped back up onto grabone for lunch and we thought we would give it a go. We waited about 20 min for someone to take our drink orders. They arrived at the table pretty quick and the waiter was very friendly. We... More

Went on a busy Tuesday night and were offered a table straight away which we were very happy about considering the wait on tables. Iguana has always had amazing food and we were very happy with the quality for the price. However the only thing that let this visit down was the service from our waitress. She seemed disinterested and... More
