Had to sit at bar as quite crowded. Only tapas being served at bar. I got nachos with jerk BBQ pork. Really so sauced up that the pork could have been about any type of meat. Also had calamari. Aioli had a nice flavor, but squid was rubbery and had too much batter on it and just wasn't a good... More

Spent the weekend in Reading and purposely searched out a Mexican restaurant. We sat outside and waited ages for nothing to arrive. Due to the weather, we then moved indoors and within 3 minutes our food arrived....STARTERS AND MAIN AT THE SAME TIME!!! The staff had no idea where we were, even though we told them. One woman behind the... More

It was my first time in Reading to celebrate Christmas in 2016 and my bestfriend, Emma told me about this restaurant. Sam was our waiter and he helped us a lot, especially for me who doesn't have any clue about Latin American food. The service was amazing, the food is double thumbs up, and Sam gave us lots of recommendation... More

Nice staff, we were served by Magda, who was lovely and very efficient. Cocktails arrived quick and tasted great too. However, despite how hard the floor staff were working, they were only just keeping up... I get the feeling that like a lot of chain restaurants they try to cut costs by having as few people on shift as possible,... More

Midweek lunchtime visit. We were one of the first tables in for lunch. But still had a long wait for food. Staff were friendly and welcoming. Food good........but nothing to shout about. Prices were average. Toilets not good. (Ladies) .

Myself and 3 friends went to Las Iguanas for my birthday meal on Saturday night. Upon arrival at our table we were told very abruptly that we had 2 hours and then had to leave. It took 25 minutes for our drink and food order to be taken and then an additional 20 minutes for any food or drink to... More

A group of us went out for dinner on a week night to Las Iguanas. The cocktails and food are both average, with the food being on the greasy side. The service was friendly but incredibly slow and inefficent. One of our drinks was forgotten altogether, our plates weren't cleared after we's finished (we eventually cleared our table by putting...

Very appealing cocktail and starters hangout - always a crowd there building the atmosphere and fast service. They have a happy hour in the evenings which makes it even better as you can load up on cocktails at halve the price when in a big group.

Description
Walk through the doors of Las Iguanas and find yourself transported to Latin America, full of rich, vibrant colours, quirky features and custom-made wooden mosaic tables made especially for the restaurant from sustainable woods in Brazil. Each restaurant is unique and the staff love bringing unusual things back from their travels, ranging from large lobster sculptures to giant drums. The philosophy of Las Iguanas is to serve delicious and authentic Latin American food and drink in an environment which evokes the very best of Latin life. With recipes dating back to the 16th century, the food successfully fuses native Latin American Indian, Spanish, Portuguese and African influences. Working hard to ensure that everything comes from the best possible source, Las Iguanas is proud of its fresh GM free food and top quality ingredients.
