“Excellent Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2014

My partner and I decided upon going to Las Iguanas in Glasgow on the first night of our Scotland 'tour', and both agreed that it was a great choice. The staff were attentive and very friendly and the food was exceptional. We'd definitely recommend the nachos to share as a starter if going as a couple. All in all it didn't cost us too much.

Would highly recommend and will definitely go back should we ever be in Glasgow again!

“Late lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2014 via mobile

Had a late lunch here on saturday with my husband. the staff were very helpful and explained the menu as we were unsure of some of the dishes. The food when it came was just as the waitress described. The margarita's were excellent as good as we've had anywhere. We will definitely go back if we fancy something a bit different. Wort a visit.

“Great menu, great staff, tastes great!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2014 via mobile

14 of us went for dinner and usually, a large crowd proves to be a problem in a busy restaurant but not here! The service was great and there was always someone on hand to take another drinks order. We had the shared starters which were fantastic, especially the shredded steak! Fajitas for main we're extremely tasty. Everyone enjoyed their meal apart from the burger which had so much sauce the bun was doggy and falling to pieces. Will definitely be back and would recommend :)

“Teething problems probably”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2014

The newest branch in the lovely Las Iguanas chain is pretty big inside, has a very cool and trendy decor and friendly staff. Its always a good sign when they ask if you are vegetarian before you've even got to your seat. Vegans and gluten-frees are well served with the menu too.

The drinks were very slow in arriving so we had to ask another waitress to track them down for us - this on a quiet weekday lunchtime where the restaurant wasnt particularly busy. We decided to select some items from the menu that we hadn't tried before on visits to other branches. Maybe we chose badly because for the first time ever we didn't really enjoy the food - veggie burger with beetroot, and a chicken dish that was dry and overcooked. We remained chipper and smiley and perused the dessert menu.

We chose a couple of nice looking desserts to go with our-after dinner coffees, but were told the coffee machine was not working. No problem we'll have a cup of tea instead. The waitress returned to tell us we could not have tea either. No idea why a restaurant is unable to boil enough water for a pot of tea, but there you go. We cut our losses and headed across the street to Patisserie Valerie for coffee and a scrumptious natas (portuguese custard tart).

I look forward to giving Las Iguanas another try. It is after all one of my favourite chains!
