    Made a booking for 2 people, but felt like we were just an extra table squeezed in on the side which was disappointing as I booked thinking that I would have a nicer table than just turning up and having what was available.
    Service was quick and food was very nice!! Definitely recommend having the tapas dishes!

    It was my friend and I first visited las iguanas. We chose the vegetarian burritos as my friend is a vegetarian. The meal was lovely and we both enjoyed it very much. The cocktails were very nice too, we felt they were very good value for money.. We were also impressed with the choices for vegetarians and people with dietary needs. Well done! ??

    Usual high standards and excellent helpful staff upstairs. Bar slow downstairs and barman appeared completely unaware of who was next in the queue, gave up and went back upstairs and our table was ready fortunately.

    The food was very good but it was a shame the service and ambiance didn't match. We were shown to a table in a pokey little corner, right next to a loud, large group and left alone with the menus. We didn't see our waiter for 10 minutes, nobody came to take any drinks orders or offer us any snacks while we chose. When we finished our meal, we had to sit for a further 5 minutes waiting for the plates to be removed - don't get me wrong, they weren't busy! All the tables around us cleared out, so we were on our own, apart from the 4 different members of staff who walked by us to clear the other tables or wipe them down!! All looked at us, but then walked away again! Finally, one other member of staff showed some other people to the table behind us, but looked over our table whilst they walked past again... guilt must have taken hold because they came back and took our plates eventually.

    Bustling, atmospheric restaurant. Food was Superb, i had the sea bass and sea food, my tastebuds had a feast. Everyone on our table of 6 really enjoyed. The cocktail deal was fantastic and put us all in a good mood to eatch the match. The waiting staff were attentive , polite and charming . Have been to a few arpund the uk , i think the Mill Lane in Cardiff is definitely worth a visit. Don' t change a thing its Perfect. Hopefully i will het to visit again soon.
