“No need to go on holiday, come here! FOOD UTOPIA”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013

Just walking in this place transports you to a food paradise and a feast for the taste buds.

The decor is a combination of Brazilian meets Cuba; it's cool, sophisticated and yet comfortable. Marry this with a cuisine that makes your mouth water before even making your order, creates a culinary delight for the food connoisseur.

The service is the best bit, the team at las iguanas is a unit, they work together and it's so refreshing. Justine was our waitress and became family by the end of the evening, nothing was a problem and everything was done with a smile.

For me service is the crucial ingredient to a successful meal and las iguanas has mastered this to a fine art.

Just come here, it'll be the best thing you do this year!

“Excellent meal and service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2013 via mobile

Food excellent and service excellent. Staff were wonderful particularly Sarah our waitress. Good choice of vegetarian food in a wide ranging menu which was obviously predominantly Mexican/Cuban plus a good range of tapas. We had the vegetarian coconut curry and chicken enchilada - both great! Happy hour drinks are 2 for 1 and there is a very large range of cocktails both alcoholic and non alcoholic. The atmosphere is bright and loud and some might find the tables too close and the decor not plush enough- but this is a bistro style restaurant not fine dining. Booking necessary during busy times but we were squeezed in luckily without. The only downside was the ladies loo which was shabby and the soap container broken and the hand dryer not working. That aside, we will happily return here.

“Lovely, everything spicy, quick food stop, in a bustling atmosphere”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2013 via mobile

Vegetarian food very good - nil for those who cannot tolerate medium hot spice (my mum!). Busy, noisy, range of people from loud student parties to families. Wouldn't go there for a 'special' occasion. Just nice, chilled out meal. Quick service.
Sunday night.

“Fantastic latin food in laid back surrounds”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2013

Great food at a reasonable price, maybe not very authentic but absolutely delicious. It would be hard to fault this place, everything was decent, including the service. Going on a Tuesday it wasn't very busy, but did get two-for-one cocktails! And they were great...
