Service was most horrendous I have had in years. We weren't provided with vegetarian menus, we waited 25 minutes to order our food and drinks, waited 1 hour for our food to arrive, drinks were forgotten about, not once did the waitress apologise for the wait when we queried what was going on, tables and seats dirty and damaged, we...

Excellent food and cocktails. This is friendly, had good service and is very reasonably priced for the lively food on offer. I will definitely go again.

Easily the best "chain" restaurant Leicester has, Las Iguanas has a calm, welcoming atmosphere and staff, even when they are busy we are never disappointing by the quality of food or service. I love south american cuisine, and since moving the UK I have not been able to find it, however Las Iguanas does a great alternative to the real... More

We dined on Saturday evening, just the two of us, and enjoyed every minute from when we stepped through the door until we left. The restaurant stands out on the street with the plants and outside area and then inside is candle lit with funky music playing and happy staff. We were shown to our table and the host was... More

Visited las iguanas with my partner on Friday evening and really enjoyed our time there. Wasn't the busiest of nights but you could see that everyone was having fun, the food was amazing I had the chicken curry dish and it was spicy but not over powering. My wife had the seafood curry which is a winner. 241 cocktails great... More

Me and my son had lunch at Las Iguanas, The atmosphere was quiet at lunchtime​ and relaxed. Our server Alex, was very entertaining and enthusiastic. He had recommended a few dishes from the menu so we decided to go with his recommendations. We really enjoyed the food.

Nicely decorated restaurant with a big Latin flavour. The menu card is a bit complex as there is a huge amount of choices (this could also be due to me not being native English and not understanding everything). I liked the latin/mediterainien style and music, although the music was very loud. Price/quality is good. Pro's: - design and decoration -... More

I met my friends here on Saturday afternoon. It's two-for-one cocktails and the food is filling and plentiful. Geniuine South American tastes and atmosphere. Well worth a visit.

Been a while since my wife and I have been to Las Iguanas Leicester. The place was okay but service was overall poor. Took forever to have our drinks made (2 cana royale cocktails on 2 for 1 offer) but in fairness the barman came over and explained to my wife how they mix the spirit and flavouring in one... More

10 of us went for a meal last night. Took a while to be seated then we waited for ages to order a drink eventually managing to ask a passing waitress.

Description
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
