A Saturday night at this themed and national chain eaterie was most enjoyable. A large party of us were seated quickly, without any prior reservation (albeit just a phone call 30 minutes previous). Drink orders were taken quickly and we took advantage of the 2-4-1 cocktail hour which was very well received. The Caipirinhas were very moorish. Service was ok, although i did think it was a little slow at times. Our party ordered many different main meals off of the menu, including fajitas, chimmychangas, spicy beef and everyone enjoyed their meals. Not much was left at all.The starters and desserts sounded tasty on the menu but we did not partake. The bill for us was about £20 per head and for a main meal and three cocktails, i thought that to be very reasonable. The restaurant has a good atmosphere and is not on the large scale. I would like to try it again soon.

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!

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.

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.
