Restaurant description

With a hidden rooftop garden that's perfect for cocktails in the sun, Las Iguanas York is a sizzling taste of the tropics in the city centre. Dishes from across South America are made with the freshest ingredients, with special options available for kids, as well as plenty of vegan and gluten-free choices too.

Transporting you to the vibrant heart of Latin America, this Las Iguanas in York 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.

    As always the food was very nice however the service seriously disappointed us on this occasion. After arriving we were waiting over 20 minutes before we even got drinks. But the food was good, especially the jerk chicken and churros.

    Shame that lack of staff and a long wait to order spoilt the overall evening. Booked for 7.30 but didn’t eat until nearly 9pm. Food was good and the 5 plate tapas deal worth the money between 2.

    We opted for the 2 courses for £14.95 special offer, and it didn't disappoint. The food was tasty and superbly cooked. We followed with shared desserts all accompanied by jugs of cocktails. The bill was around £170 for 4 of us which we were more than happy with considering the great service we received.
