Reviewed yesterday NEW

The staff were great with good banter. Service was swift and the food was fresh and delicious. 2 cocktails for the price of one was a bonus! The place is spacious but not noisy. It's in a central location along the main 'avenue' between Gateshead Quays and Newcastle City Centre. Price was most reasonable.

Absolutely love Las Iguanas, beautiful 2 for 1 cocktails and fab meals. The tapas deals are lovely. Great for all occasions: girls night, work nights out and date night! Bit expensive but worth it if you like mexican food!

Popped in on a busy Saturday lunchtime whilst waiting for my iPhone to be repaired. We did not have reservations but they were happy to make space for us. The service was quick and friendly and the food was very good. Will certainly be returning.

The best part was the drinks the mojitos were great. I had an enchilada and it was average- the place was super busy too so... More

Got in here quite late on a Saturday night and it was still pretty busy which was a good sign. Waiter was really friendly and helpful too... happy hour on all drinks so happy with two cocktails for the price of one! Obviously a Latin theme to the food with lots of South and Central American options: I opted for... More

Didn't book a table, walked in on a busy Saturday afternoon and it was no problem ..... got the Banana Joe cocktail and it was lush !! Food was what we expected , sadly a lot of my chips had black on them (potato eyes) but once I cut them off they where fine

It's been packed from day one, the new hot spot for lunch, dinner and cocktails. It's just the place to drop in for supper before or after a night out at the Theatre Royal too.
