“Amazing food and drinks. Be smart about the cost.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2014

Eating here can get expensive. Unless you plan ahead. I did and it was awesome. Margaritas on weekends are cheapest between 12pm-3pm and progressively get more and more expensive as evening approaches. So go for lunch if you want to save money on drinks.
Great view of the river. Friendly staff, but they look slightly overworked.
Food's great, optimum serving size. Must go if you are looking for Mexican food in Singapore! There are so few of this and this is on the top of the list for me.

“Favorite weekend dinner restaurant ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2014 via mobile

This is one of my favorite restaurants to visit over the weekend for a really good and casual Mexican dinner. Beef fajita is my personal favorite but any other dishes are equivalently delicious!

“Good food, reasonable prices - you do pay for the view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2014

Large portions (mainly) which meant that we should have listened to our waitress, who told us we'd ordered too much! Still, they will always prepare a 'doggie bag'.

Ask for an outdoor table - they're covered so even if its raining, you'll get the view but you won't get wet!

“Used to be great”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

I was one of the earliest patrons of this restaurant when it was opened years ago by the guys who had started Brewerkz. Back then, it was rarely crowded, the staff really engaged with customers, and management clearly cared about the product and experience they were offering. Recently visited Singapore and of course went back to Café Iguana.....what a disappointment. One of the owners I met years ago used to take great pride in their tequila offering and the quality of their cocktails......now the ruthless commercialism which has come to Singapore with casinos and F-1 has pervaded this place too. I tried to order a margarita specifying a particular tequila.....you would have thought I was negotiating nuclear disarmament. The bartender then asked if I wanted the drink made with a 30ml pour or 45ml....to which I replied "which is the standard pour for a proper margarita recipe?" This has gone from a place which took pride in its product to a place attempting to gouge for every nickel they can get......hugely disappointing.
