Went last night for a birthday celebration. Have always had a great experience at the Mermaid Quay restaurant. Sadly not replicated here. Whilst the food was delicious the service was not up to scratch. We were virtually ignored and our food took well over an hour to arrive which is not acceptable. We then had to wait ages for the...

The food is great that's why I have a discount card because I have been a regular customer for so many years. Unfortunately the new manager doesn't seem to care , and has made my last experience there unpleasant. Wouldn't honour my 20% discount on Tapas menu , which has never happened before. I feel he doesn't give a hoot... More

My daughter (6) & I came here for a light lunch. Greeted promptly by front of house and seated. Our waitress explained the menu & left us to browse the menu. I ordered the Fiesta Ensalda which was huge and very nice. My daughter chose the wacky taco's from the children's menu and had warm brownies and ice cream for... More

So far, this restaurant has the best and varied vegetarian selection for a meat eating restaurant. I was expecting a small selection but was pleasantly surprised to be given an entirely separate menu with wonderful exciting possibilities. The food was really nice and I will certainly come back again to this restaurant chain

After having a bad staff experience across the plaza from Las Iguanas we were so well pleased with the staff and management here. Manager jumped in to help busy staff. Food was good and amount of attention to us was appropriate

Went recently for a spot of lunch. Each of us got the calamari and patatas bravas. Good sized portions and really tasty. Took advantage of the 2 for 1 cocktails. Waitress was really friendly and I impressed with everything.

Visited mill lane, last night and had a great evening, we were greeted warmly and friendly as soon as we walked in. We were shown to a nice booth at the front with a view of what was going on outside, which was nice. We ordered tapas to share on recommendation of the waitress who was friendly and engaging. The...

Went here today - party of 8. Booked a table for 330pm. Late sitting down. Was told there was a 2 hour slot. At ten past 5 the food still hadn't arrived. The staff were too busy serving drinks outside & forgot about us & other families inside. I only went there under pressure as I've never had a good... 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.
