We popped in for a cocktail and a nibble before the theatre, the team were really hospitable and served us quickly. Food was fresh and tasty and the espresso martinis were fabulous!

Stumbled upon this place on the way back to our hotel. At 10:00pm we were late and asked if they were serving, no problem as long as you order in the next 5 mins. Great attitude & really appreciated that they accommodated us so late...More

2 persons on a Thursday evening. Seated quickly. Shared a nachos starter then had ribs and moqueca. The ribs were very tender. Tried a new cocktail - pear ciprianha. It was good but too much ice. Everything was very tasty. Will visit again.

We often go to las iguanas when in Leicester and it doesn't disappoint. Nice tapas (including some new ones), sides and mains. 2 for one cocktails is a good saver and take care not to over order as the amounts are filling!

Great service for food and drinks for a party of 8. Chilli and steak tacos were good and the cocktails were on 2 for 1. Watch out for the service 'suggestion' already included in the bill.

Myself and a few friends came in late night for a few drinks and nibbles and were able to sit outside and enjoy the warm evening. We ordered a selection of tapas dishes and a cocktail or several. They had funky music on, candles outside...More

Walk through the doors of Las Iguanas and find yourself transported to Latin America, full of rich, vibrant colours, quirky features and custom-made wooden mosaic tables made especially for the restaurant from sustainable woods in Brazil. Each restaurant is unique and the staff love bringing unusual things back from their travels, ranging from large lobster sculptures to giant drums. The philosophy of Las Iguanas is to serve delicious and authentic Latin American food and drink in an environment which evokes the very best of Latin life. With recipes dating back to the 16th century, the food successfully fuses native Latin American Indian, Spanish, Portuguese and African influences. Working hard to ensure that everything comes from the best possible source, Las Iguanas is proud of its fresh GM free food and top quality ingredients
