    Service was efficient and friendly and the food was lovely (we had the ribs in a sticky rum sauce with fries and coleslaw followed by a chocolate cake and coffee). There were several large parties in while we dined so the atmosphere was very noisy and the acoustics of the underground arches tend to amplify this, so probably not a good venue for a quite romantic dinner - but the food, cocktails and service trumped this for us. All-in-all a good experience.

    Great service, food a little slow in arriving at the table but we weren't in a rush so it wasn't a problem. Good food, great location.

    Food was good and interesting. Had cocktail hour but had to have the same cocktail to get the 2 for 1 offer which I thought was a bit mean.

    Nice atmosphere and fun music with Good cocktail but food was mediocre which was a pity. Had the flamin bird with chips and unfortunately nandos would have been better! The guacamole was good but nothing special. I'd still come here for convenience and a nice cocktail and the ambiance but I wouldn't come for the food. Recommended nonetheless.

    My meal was pretty ordinary - the chicken with coconut sauce and rice. There was hardly any sauce and the rice was very dry.

    Warm welcome, delicious food and margaritas, excellent and friendly service and great value for money. Most enjoyable meal for a long time. Will return very soon.

    I took a group of 8 friends for lunch so was concerned Las Iguanas would live up to my previous experiences there. It did. The menu is interesting. The food was delicious (my vegetable enchilada was very tasty, yet not too spicy for my non chilli taste). The service was attentive and friendly. We were able to share starters and churros for dessert which kept the costs down and there were the right drinks for everyone's taste. The best caiparinha!
