I made an impromptu trip to Brighton from London and we were looking out for a lazy Sunday lunch in Brighton. We initially went to another place somewhere around Las Iguanas but someone recommended we go here and I am glad we did! When I used Zomato to check this place out there were no reviews and now that I think about it, I just wonder how! We had an absolutely fantastic meal and couldn't have asked any better way to spend a lazy Sunday in Brighton. They offer 1 + 1 on cocktail pitchers and we got ourselves Margaritas and it tasted #topnotch. The vibe of the place is very welcoming and bright and is easy to locate. I particularly loved the interiors. Coming to the food, we ordered nachos, chicken wings, quesadillas and these amazing sweet potato fries that I truly relished, I still crave those fries on so many days! They had a offer on the food too and we got five dishes for £17 which was a steal of a deal! Oh, I forgot to mention we also ordered churros with dark chocolate dip and they melted in our mouths! Left us wanting more! Overall, the food was yum and fresh and we truly enjoyed our afternoon at Las Iguanas!

If you're in Brighton, I totally recommend you visit this place because we ate like little piggies and you would too if you go to this place <3

Went in by chance as night was horrible and saw some empty tables. Really glad we did

Starters were amazing - Prawns, squid and ribs all in different but quite spicey sauces. Wished we had them for main course.

Cocktails were two for one and you can't go wrong with a Cuba libre.

Mains of burger and chicken were good but no where as good as the starters.

Negatives - menu states starters are 3 for £14.99 from memory but waiter said they were normal prices ( sales of good act?)

On way out found cards at entrance advertising main meals buy one get one free - not told of this in restaurant which would have been nice!!

Slow slow service, writing review whilst waiting.
Cocktails in small glasses and mostly ice. Wine pricey.
Food however really good. Had Xinxim and the rack of ribs.
Would we return? Only if free main course offer again offered.

Las Iguanas is a great option for us ( family of 4, some vege, some fussy!) - loads of vegetarian options, lots of healthy options and a real goo selection for different tastes. Served by Dan on last visit and the food was quick, delicious and great value. Services was friendly, attentive, polite and relaxed.

Always a great experience, delicious food, great range of options and friendly service.
