    A very pleasant evening spent in the company of friends and made all the better by the pleasant environment Las Iguanas had to offer. Good table layout, nice décor and enough of a noise level to give off a good vibe but low enough to hold a conversation without shouting. Good food, portion sizes were adequate so you don't feel too full however none of us wanted dessert which is a reflection on the quantities. Really enjoyed my 'XinXim' dish, very pleasantly spiced with enough side dishes. Service could have been better, the bar server forgot my order leaving me stood like a muppet for 5 minutes thinking "is she making my Dark N Stormy pitchers?" Drinks were added on to a separate tab and when it came to settling the bill, the drinks weren't included. Honesty prevailed and this was pointed out to our server who was most grateful.

    Good atmosphere. Table service was very good, but bar staff could not interrupt two waiting staff to come to greet and seat our party. Some of the food was a little disappointing, including the child's pizza which was dry. It's our second visit and the first visit was much better. However our waiter was excellent and he deserved five stars.

    The staff were under some degree of pressure but coped cheerfully and politely, This was despite the unwelcome visit of a woman under the effects of alcohol who had to be removed and then decided to take revenge of a staff member's motorcycle. The police were called that necessitated the staff member to be interviewed and that further left the staff depleted. It was a busy evening but they never flagged. Good for them for going the extra mile! Food delicious. It was our 47th Wedding Anniversary.

    The staff were very nice and welcoming. I had looked at the menu online and found Fajitas but didn't see them on either the A la Carte or Early Evening menus that we were given. The food was very nice though and the place was good. The cocktails were lovely.

    Great atmosphere, reasonable priced menu. The deal isn't too bad, I have found a nice dish on two occasions. Only thing I would say is I ordered brigadeo for desert. My mother in law is Brazilian and when she makes brigaderos they are small balls of chocolate loveliness...... this was a whole glass of chocolate gan ache, frankly it was far too rich, sickly and not really nice. A table of six all though the same. But steak starter and a veg palm heart main were both faultless!! Nice staff, it was very busy so a bit of a wait but no problem, Def nicer that way than being thrown out your seats ASAP for the next bookings. Thanks Las iguanas!

    Amazing food and lovely staff

    The place was amazing just a shame the service was terrible. The tables are far to close together and we were practicaly joined to tables on each side. We waited nearly an hour between our starter and main and the waiter would not give us eye contact when we wanted to ask where they were. We had to grab a member of staff for more drinks and they seamed to take even longer to come after. Also the table behind us were a bunch of lads who had clearly drank far to much. From what we could make out they had been told to be quiet more than once. It was a shame because its looks like a lovely restaurant. I never complain normaly, i know what its like when its busy and i fully appreciate but the whole combination of things did not make it a good experience.
