Description: Walk through the doors of Las Iguanas and find yourself transported to Latin America, full of rich, vibrant colours, quirky features and custom-made wooden mosaic tables made especially for the restaurant from sustainable woods in Brazil. Each restaurant is unique and the staff love bringing unusual things back from their travels, ranging from large lobster sculptures to giant drums. The philosophy of Las Iguanas is to serve delicious and authentic Latin American food and drink in an environment which evokes the very best of Latin life. With recipes dating back to the 16th century, the food successfully fuses native Latin American Indian, Spanish, Portuguese and African influences. Working hard to ensure that everything comes from the best possible source, Las Iguanas is proud of its fresh GM free food and top quality ingredients.

“Excellent place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2012

My birthday was in 07/08 and booked a table at the restaurant in Brighton (party of 9). Would love to pass on how good the whole service and experience was, which I find is very rare. Staff are always happy and enthusiastic. My friends had made me birthday cupcakes and the waiter went to the trouble of lighting the cakes and dimming the lights and keeping it all secret. It was so lovely. The food as always was beautiful! Defiantly one of the best restaurants to go to celebrate!

“Great food and excellent value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2012

Have been to Las Iguanas numerous times and just keep going back. The food and atmosphere are fantastic and the prices very reasonable. The food is very flavoursome and they offer a wide variety too. The staff are friendly and helpful. I'd also advise going during 'happy hour' for 2 for 1 cocktails!

“Great Latin treat!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2012

Had been here before and enjoyed it - so decided to visit again early on a Friday night, without a booking.

Service, food and atmosphere were all excellent.

We chose five tapas to share: cha-cha chorizo, calamares, lamb empanadas, pato taquito and chunky funky champinones.

I was concerned about whether it was going to be too heavy on the chilli, but I needn't have worried.

Each dish came up perfectly spiced and full of flavour.

The fact that the cocktails were on 2 for 1 also helped! ;-)

Whilst we were there the heavens opened outside, but the atmosphere and vibe were so good, I couldn't've cared less!

Two fantastic desserts rounded off a superb meal, and when we were leaving the restaurant was packed.....

We shall return!

“Great service, lovely food”

Really tasty Brazillian restaurant - part of a growing chain, but food quality still really good. Had veggie fajitas and a veggie burrito - both really tasty and well cooked. Great chilli sauces too!
