    20 minutes prior to our booked dining time of 13:30, I received a call from Beth st the restaurant informing me that they "had no gas" and that there would be a limited menu. We arrived and were told that the a la carte menu was now reduced to four main courses as other dishes were also unavailable due to a delivery mix up.
    I had stated at the time of booking that we were intending to use more than one birthday voucher. This did not seem to be a problem. I also reiterated this to the member of staff I who greeted my Mother and I when we arrived, again this did not seem to be a problem. We were shown to a table to await the rest of our party.
    Our waitress arrived to take a drinks order and I declined as we were still waiting for others to arrive. I explained to her that I had not printed my voucher and asked if it would be a problem. She said no, but when I stated that we would be using two she began to be aggressive and told me that we could not use both. When I pointed out that we had already been inconvenienced by the lack of menu choices she became more angry and stalked off to speak to the manager leaving me mid-sentence. When she returned, she told me that we could use both vouchers but would be united to choosing from the only four dishes available. When I tried to enter into further conversation she said angrily "we're accommodating you!" and walked away, again shutting me down mid sentence.
    When the rest of my party appeared, despite the fact that this same waitress was at the front door, she completely ignored them, and they were forced to find our table by themselves. Fortunately it is a small restaurant. I explained that due to various circumstances we were limited to four main courses, none of which were suitable for two members of my party. We decided at this point that due to both the poor service we had received, the fact that this would probably continue through our meal and the lack of suitsble menu choices that we would leave.

    Fabulous evening at Las Iguanas, Mermaid Quay (Cardiff Bay)!
    Our waitress was brilliant: very friendly, helpful and polite. As it was my birthday, she went above and beyond. I ordered something that has sold out, but she asked the chef if he could make it especially for me (which he did!). She also brought out a brownie with a candle in it! How thoughtful!
    Very, very good experience! Great food, delicious cocktails and friendly staff.

    Being gluten, wheat and diary free I find it traumatic ordering at a restaurant. The gentleman was so tentative, and checked thoroughly that there weren't any of those ingredients in the order.

    It was an amazing night. We loved the dish Fajitas which was served in a very good way. And it was also delicious. The waiters were very friendly and tried to make everything perfect. Thank you!
