Top spot for a nightcap. Large venue, lots of interesting stuff on walls etc to look at. Looks like a good function room out the back. Didn't have meal but menu looks like good bar food.

This iconic Hamilton restaurant seems to have been around forever. Perhaps because it's so good. The meals are consistently outstanding and the service is usually spot on too.

The restaurant was very nicely designed with lovely decor - this would have been my highlight of Iguana. Would recommend to friends if they were fine with spending quite a bit on the food, however for people on a... More

Nice pizza. A little over priced. Coffee is good.service is ok but rather slow. We waited for ages. On weekends this place is very busy so getting a table could be tricky.

We hadn't booked but had no problem finding a table. Food was good, not great. Fish was overcooked and the requested rare steak came medium/well done. The staff were efficient and friendly.

Went with friends and family for a celebration - hadn't been to Iguana for many years as I have found it too noisy but this time we were put at the back part of the restaurant and I thought that would be good. I think our group was forgotten because there was very limited service - when questioned as to... More
