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

Cocktail expensive with clearly little alcohol in them, service was friendly but slow for drinks. I had chicken burger and for over £11 very average presentation was shocking for amount paid, came away feeling a bit ripped off

When we got there we were put on a table which felt sticky, when pointed out the waitress said that some of the tables were old and the varnish made them feel sticky - but she moved us to a different table which was much better for us. It was very slow at first as we received our starters before... More
