In the shadow of the Spinnaker Tower, Las Iguanas – Gunwharf Quays is a bubbly bar and restaurant with a large outdoor seating area. Serving Latin American dishes, Las Iguanas sits close to the picturesque waterfront.

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.

    Excellent service, lovely fresh food. Amazing vegan choices

  • ((*** 23 February 2017 by Js Roberts from Chichester District

    Wait person was very over-stretched, so did not notice when our delayed drinks and later food were/was ready. The starter chips with salsa was very good, but about half the size expected - salsa dip in a very tiny cone-shaped vessel - very hard to access, so not again. Chicken fratata very good, but smaller mount of chicken this time. Ribs very good, but slaw not so and not told the sweet potato fries had an up charge, nor that they would be so over cooked they tasted burnt. Generally, we used to love the place, but not sure about returning. Maybe time to change accountants. . .

    We had a really good evening here. Two of us were vegetarian so there was plenty of choice and it was varied which is very unusual. The atmosphere was very jolly and animated which we all liked. The staff seemed happy and took time to serve us even at busy times. Well done!

    Good atmosphere and friendly accommodating staff. We had 5 tapas dishes, my personal favourite being the king prawns, although one of the items was not what we ordered but still nice. Also had a few cocktails on the 2 for 1 deal, although a shame you can't mix and match the two cocktails-they have to be the same one. Would recommend as an informal dinning experience with a friendly atmosphere and reasonable price.
