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.

“It's a wrap!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2014

Never been here before, but fancied a change. It's an attractive restaurant with a good atmosphere - there were a couple of large, quite noisy, parties in, but the restaurant is laid out in such a way that you don't feel overwhelmed if you're alone or with a small group.

We both had chicken burritos; well filled with chunks of chicken and black beans and with rice, salad and salsa on the side so that it doesn't go soggy. All very tasty. With a drink, the bill was under £20 for lunch, which I thought was very good value.

In fact the only minor downside was that the staff were so attentive that it felt a bit over the top, and the standard question of "are you here to celebrate?" was out of place on a Saturday lunchtime when out shopping. Also, the suggestion of adding side dishes was inappropriate - why would anyone want patatas bravas with burritos and rice?

Overall though, a pleasant experience and I'll certainly eat here again.

“The best Mexican in Leeds”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2014 via mobile

This restaurant is friendly, fab food and gorgeous cocktails. The lighting is lovely and subdued and I've been countless times and it's consistently excellent. Me and my friend go one Friday night per month before 7.3o for the happy hour 2 for 1 on selected cocktails. We so look forward to going and already booked in for our next night out! Xx

“Reasonable”

Service was very good, food was average. Air conditioning was too cold. Waitress was very attentive and friendly. Lots of choice from the menu as well.

Went with friends to celebrate a birthday. were really friendly and the free drink for the birthday girl was a nice surprise. We all really enjoyed the food and service was great. Drinks were expensive but will try again as there was lots of choice on the menu

“A real surprise!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2014

I had a great time form when I entered to when I left.

The bar staff were all friendly, joking & laughing with my kind of humour. We ordered at the bar and our food was on our table within minutes. we ordered 5 x Tapas from the special menu,

Wings Vivo, real great zesty flavour with a nice chilli heat at the end, Gambas, really tasty, great sauce to match, Chorizo, a little salty for my taste, but still good, Pato Taq was a delish duck dish, really tasty and the Albondigas, meatballs were ever so tasty.

Great place, great food, great people. I will be eating at a Las Iguanas again ...... soon :-)
