With a fun and lively basement cocktail bar, Latin American restaurant Las Iguanas – Cardiff is an authentic and vibrant venue in the heart of Cardiff’s Cafe Quarter.

Transporting you to the vibrant heart of Latin America, Las Iguanas presents an eclectic fusion of pan-continental influences, blending native Latin American, Indian, Spanish, Portuguese and African flavours. An informal yet exuberant eatery, Latin American artefacts punctuate the surfaces at Las Iguanas restaurant, and the interior features bespoke tables made from sustainable Brazilian wood, with vibrant colours throughout.

Full of authentic and tasty Latin American treats, the Las Iguanas menu features sizzling steaks, chicken fresh from the barbecue, and traditional dishes from all corners of South America. Meat and fish-free dishes and delicious meals designed for children are in ample supply, and the Las Iguanas bar stock is legendary: bursting with cocktails, wines, beers, punches and coolers.

    First time actually eating there so used the Special Deal Menu... 3 courses plus a cocktail for £20. Well worth every penny! Sometimes feel on these offers that the food / drink is a sort of second best as you're not eating off the main full price menu. And the staff can be a little less attentive too. No, not here.. The cocktail was full strength and as good as if I'd bought it straight from over the bar. The food was delicious and regular size portions. The choice was of course limited but did have a selection to cover most people's tastes and had a veggie option.It was a great taster as to what must be on the full menu. Staff very friendly and efficient. So will definitely be returning here!!!

    Booking on line great. Service very good. Food as expected. Toilets awful - not clean & both water taps in the Ladies squirted water all over you!

    First half of the meal was brought out in half hour, the second half was in an hour. Drinks took over an hour to be brought over. Complained and it still took over half hour for next drinks to come out.
    Won't be returning to restaurant.

    Went here for a meal out for my birthday, with friends.

    Got there a little early so had a few drinks in the downstairs bar.

    Once our table was ready we were quickly served. Food came quite quickly & was really tasty.

    Really enjoyed both the meal & drinks & found the atmosphere of the place really pleasant. My only complaint in terms of the venue is that there isn't much room there, but otherwise it was great!

    Will definitely return.

    Food was good. The starters were warm rather than hot when they arrived at the table. We had a big gap between starter and main course. Despite booking the table wasn't ready and were told to go to the bar. The barmen were very busy and didn't even smile or acknowledge we were in front of them. Not very smiley and welcoming even when serving us. Wine was lovely though. Server was very nice and told us what was not available on the menu before we started to look which was good.

    Lovely cocktails during happy hour and weren't rushed despite it being NYE! Would recommend the passion fruit lava for dessert!
