Las Iguanas Oxford has a reliably good atmosphere and friendly service. The food is always delicious, and they have a great range of veggie and vegan options! The choices tend towards the popular- burgers, burritos, enchiladas- rather than the more exotic and unexpected, but there are still some more out-of-the-ordinary offerings, such as the delicious plantain, palm hearts and butternut squash curry. I've been here lots of times and have never been disappointed!

We stopped in for the lunch option as I had passed by this place so many times and not tried it.
The food was very nice, not too heavy for somebody needing to get back to work but more than enough for a good lunch.
I have eaten a lot of Mexican and Spanish food and so have something to compare Las Iguanas against - the standard of the food was very good, not over the top with the spices (as in poorer quality places) so that the flavours came through. I had the spicy chicken quesadilla for a starter and the chicken enchilada for the main (bit of a chicken theme here but i can recommend it). We finished off with a cafe cortado condensada.
Service was excellent (thanks to the lovely Carmen) and the food tasted great. As for the prices, for a decent lunch menu in Oxford it was on a par with comparable places.
I will certainly be returning next time I am in town.

Great night out last night at the Oxford Las Iguanas to celebrate my daughter's birthday. We went early to take advantage of happy hour. Glad we booked as they were turning people away. Definitely a good sign. Served by the lovely Deidre we ordered a mix of tapas dishes. All were excellent. Lots of other people were also having a great time so very lively without being too loud. Delicious food, great atmosphere and happy cheerful staff, an irresistible combination.

Really nice restaurant , had a good meal and especially recommend the chicken fajitas. Also was able to use my tastecard which reduced the overall bill.
The location of this restaurant is good , had nice table overlooking the water.
