“Hen Party Package - great cocktails tasty food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2014

We went to Leeds on my hen weekend, and our evening meal on the second night was with Las Iguanas. We had pre-ordered our food and a lot of people had forgotten what they had ordered. No problem, because they called out our names instead of the name of the dish! very helpful!

The staff were really lovely and friendly. Cocktails were nice (but pricey!) but we ordered extra during happy hour (buy one get one free) to see us through our meal.

All in all we were all very impressed with the food, drinks and service. The restaurant has a lovely atmosphere, and I would visit here again next time I'm in Leeds.

Thank you for a fab start to our night :) x

“Tasty Food, Friendly Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2014

Enjoyed my visit very much. Service was friendly and attentive, very much appreciated the offer of exclusively vegetarian and gluten free menus. Yes us veggies are a pain, but how lovely to be offered an exclusive menu.

I'm always sceptical of Mexican food as an evening sit down meal, I think it works better as a lunchtime street food. This is the exception though, tasty starters and mains, freshly cooked and well presented.

Cocktails were average, fine on the BOGOF deal, but if I'd paid full price, I'd be somewhat disappointed.

Would return.

“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

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.
