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.

“Great place”
Reviewed April 25, 2014 via mobile

Went last night for my daughters birthday, it was our first visit the place was buzzing a really good atmosphere. Started of with 2 for 1 cocktails which were nice.
we all had something different for starters and mains which were all enjoyable and the service was first class.
It made a change to try something a bit different to the usual diners. Will definitely go again.

“Funky food and fab cocktails”
Reviewed April 5, 2014

Girls Friday lunch, restaurant was buzzing, started with cocktails, very well made. We had two courses very good service and food was quick to arrive. It was beautifully presented and plenty of it. We took advantage of happy hour and enjoyed a second cocktail. It was fantastic value, most enjoyable, I would definitely recommend and return.

“Can't be bothered to serve when half empty”
Reviewed March 29, 2014 via mobile

Just turned up for late Saturday lunch at 14:40. Restaurant half empty.
Grumpy manager: "Have you got a reservation?"
Us: "No."
Grumpy manager: "We can't seat you as we need to start getting tables ready for tonight's parties."
Us: "WHAAAAAT!? Are you serious, you're half empty and it's only 2.40."
Grumpy manager: "some are booked in at 3.00."

Stupid. Idiotic. Pathetic. Lost our business. Terrible manager with no business sense!

“Was very surprise”
Reviewed March 23, 2014 via mobile

Have been to a las iguanas chain before and knew what sort of food to expect. We only came for lunch and by the time we ate, paid we left with smiles on our faces as we had a lovely time. The waitress Rachel was lovely and polite too. Thank you for a lovely lunch meal. Will be coming back

“Delicious food, friendly staff, great atmosphere”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly, and the service was good. The food was absolutely delicious (and this is coming from someone who is spice-phobic), and the atmosphere and decor were brilliant. Highly recommended, particularly the white wine sangria. Just beware that they might ask about extras when you're ordering, but not mention that they are charged for.
