    A very enjoyable experience.Although we had a table booked,when we arrived the restaurant was very busy.We explained we had a train to get home.The staff made every effort to make sure we did not to wait too long between courses.It was very good value.The only slight downside was that it was very noisy although for a Saturday afternoon it must be expected.

    This was our first visit and I was impressed. The staff were knowledgeable, friendly and helpful without being obsequious. Thank you to John for making our lunch a pleasant affair.

    The menu was varied and our chosen dishes were very well prepared and presented.

    I was not driving and enjoyed the Brahma beer, another first, and there was an excellent range of soft drink cocktails for my wife - the spiced berry with ginger beer received a five-star rating from her.

    I was surprised how quickly the restaurant filled up and the place deservedly was doing a roaring trade. A mix of quality food and a well-considered price point means Las Iquanas has got it just right.

    Our waitress was very helpful and informative, she knew the menu very well and explained the dishes to us so we could make the right choices. The food was lovely and was served very quickly, considering the bar and restaraunt were very busy. The cocktails were lovely too. We had a great dining experience with excellent customer service. Would definitely recommend this bar and restaraunt to friends and family. Thank you and keep the good work up.

    Louis, our waiter was fab and very attentive.

    The starters of Sticky Ribs were average at best, which neither thought were particularly good. My husband had the Fajita's which he described as tasteless and just ok, and in his defence, reflected in their appearance. Fajita's normally arrive sizzling on a skillet with heat and flavour, whereas these arrived silent & insipid!

    I had the the Bahian coconut chicken which came with a 'huge' plate of rice, the chicken was nice, although on the small side and the sauce was really lovely, but the meal lacked any flare or imagination which let it down. Annoyingly the tables for two are very small so by the time our wine, water and meals arrived, we found ourselves putting things on the floor so as to eat comfortably without fear of sending something flying across to another table which are only inches away! Although not somewhere we dine regularly, we have been several times and would say this was the worst meal, so while we wouldn't rush back just yet...... i wouldn't rule it out all together or not recommend others to give it a go.
