This was the third year we returned to Iguana Cantina but it's not the same. Some people seem to love it but it's not for us. Rice should not be cold and crispy. Beans should have some flavor. I had the signature dish - Chicken...More

Surprised by many of the negative reviews. Our two families of four had a good meal. Loved the Mexican lasagna and the brick chicken. Good margaritas. We’d eat here again.

Ecxcellent Mexican food, warm chips and great view overlooking the courtyard plaza. Our server was polite, attentive and willing to answer all our questions. Just a quick walk from the Marriott Stellaris to Iguana Cantina.

Food/drinks are ok. We had fish tacos, to me the cole slaw had way to much mayonaise and needed more seasoning. Also almond fried fish, no taste at all.

The food was ok, I had the coconut prawns. They were slightly over cooked. My spouse had chicken enchiladas which he said was very salty. He thought it may be the red sauce. We were not served any water. Our waitress brought out the “hot...More

We ate here while shopping downtown. I had the fajitas and my daughter the steak. Both were very good. The staff was friendly and helpful. They directed us to the local bus terminal and told us which one to take back to the hotel.
