In quintessential South-American style, Las Iguanas – Lakeside evokes an energetic atmosphere. The airy dining room boasts high ceilings, bright splashes of colour and is filled with quirky, authentic artefacts.

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.

    We had a lovely meal and the friendly service was excellent.

    Although the food and wine were top notch I did feel we were rushed between our starters and our mains. We were constantly asked (well three times) if we were ready for our mains. We said not yet and after the third time they brought us our mains anyway. I could understand it if it were busy but this was a Wednesday night and hardly half full.

    Terrible service and goood well below usual standard compared to previous visits. They also tried to add extra 5 meals to our bill that we did not have

    Disappointing visit, albeit booked some weeks before there was no table available on arrival and subsequently some tables were hastily assembled next to the busy staircase. The service was pretty slow, however the starters were very good but the rest of the food was purely average. The noise from the upstairs bar/disco was very loud making communication almost impossible and detracted from what should have been a friends catch up meal.

    First time I have eaten here, the service was quick and the food was really good. I had a dish called ximxin and it was really nice and well presented.

    Starter great. Main course for 2 of us quite tasteless. Other 4 enjoyed theirs. Service good. Only drawback was the noise in there. Couldn't hold a conversation as music from upstairs was so loud.
