Been to Iguana couple of times. Never failed to order Prawn Bruchetta. Classic Margarita by jug is happy hour offering 50% discount from SGD 56 after 2200hrs. Great music and ambiance. Clean toilet and fast service.

Batting the beer from brewerkz, nothing special. The fajitas were okay. Nothing more to say; nothing in the menu read different.

Came here on a crowded Saturday evening. Was given a table pretty quick. Wait time was about 5 min. Love that they provide complimentary nachos with salsa dip while waiting to order and for the food to arrive. We always go for the Quesadillas and nacho set. This time we got soft tacos as well. Food was served incredibly fast.... More

We had dinner here and we enjoyed the overall experience. Ambiance and service are good. We ordered 2 appetizers, 1 main course, 2 desserts and 2 drinks. The appetizers were too good - quesadilla and nacho salad. We totally loved them. Iguana beer was good too. We dint like the veg bowl we orded for main course. It was just... More

There is nothing which can beat the location with the river and clark quay in background. Food came quick and the chef did a great job with garnishing. Price is ok for Singapore & location. Serive was decent. Their nachos were crispy & different & sauces used not your typical mexican off the shelf stuff. Definitely Worth a visit.

We loved the food - lots of it and very tasty. Also the special deal on Margaritas. If you book you can have a table by the river.

Epic nachos and margaritas. My wife and I shared the large nacho plate, couldn't even finish it! The restaurant has a laid back vibe and nice view overlooking the river. It wasn't overly crowded or noisy this visit, but we've been here before when it was busier.

Sadly many people have left Singapore so CI a bit empty. However the free wings with a jug of Margarita made up for it so had another one but had the great Fajitas for dinner instead of more free wings.

This place is just plain awesome! From the red chain operated firehouse doors to the industrial chic interior. Iguanas has been a staple in Singapore for years. A tried and true formula: good food + good service = great experience. Their salsa is simply addictive. Too bad only the first bowl of chips' salsa is free ;-) I'd also suggest... More

We went for dinner and the food was great but the service was a little off. The waiter kept correcting me on the pronunciation of "tortilla" which was pretty funny because I'm from Texas and he almost insisted that I pronounce the L's. Then for some reason they almost refused to sell me extra tortillas. We waited for a very... More

Staying in The Quays

Neighbourhood Profile
The Quays
From Marina Bay, a walk along Singapore River will take you through the three Quays of the city, each offering a very different atmosphere. Boat Quay features historical sites and a buzzing riverfront vibe. Clarke Quay caters to the party crowd, while Robertson Quay appeals to the leisurely wanderer. Weekends at Robertson Quay and Martin Road also give a peek into the lives of expats in Singapore, as the riverfront teems with joggers, dog walkers, and those getting their caffeine fix over brunch or enjoying a burger and a beer. No matter what you’re up for, the three Quays have something to keep you happy, day or night.
