    Visited on a Saturday at 5:30pm as I had theatre tickets for the National Theatre and wanted something close by. Las Iguanas fit the bill perfectly.
    I ordered from the A La Carte menu as I wanted some light tapas dishes and these were good value with the 3 for £15 offer along with the 2 4 1 cocktails, although I wish I had known that this means that you get 2 glasses of your cocktail at the same time so the two of us received 4 cocktails instead of the 2 we were expecting. This was not a problem as the cocktails were nice, not very strong, but good nonetheless. Service was a bit patchy but all in all had a great evening and would be back.

    Brilliant atmosphere, fab good though the waiter made mistakes with our drinks then we couldn't get his attention. Glad I booked as it was packed in there at 6.30.

    Great £20 meal deal when pre booking- cockails plus x2 courses. Great food and totally stuffed!!

    Portions are a fraction of what I remember. My chicken fajitas only had 4 small pieces of chicken- definitely not enough for the four fajita wraps. There was a huge pile of grilled onions and peppers but I ordered chicken not veggie fajitas. Also the small condiment cups were half full. 1/2 container of salsa/sour cream-that was about a tablespoon to split between 4 wraps. Three jalapeño slices? It wasn't good enough for a £15 meal. Look for a different restaurant that doesn't skimp on food!

    Lovely lunch at Las Iguanas. We had a starter each follows by chicken fajitas which were really tasty. Very good service.

    The food was fine - but my word - the cocktails were weak. Worse than weak. Either there was hardly any spirits in them or the spirits have been watered down significantly.

    We had ciphranas and Margerittas and after the first couple of rounds I queried the lack of quality of the drinks (it was like drinking a kids squash drink) the next round was equally bad.

    Beyond awful and really surprised to experience that kind of situation in an established high street brand/franchise.
