Our waitress was lovely the food was nice and the service was quick. This was all good as a present show meal. But. When we got there the music was mexican and good atmospheric background noise but as the meal went on the music got louder and faster. We felt like we were eating in a club by the time... More

Disabled ok! Wow, food here was fantastic. Some great value deals on the menu with 241 cocktail offers, quick starters for lunchtime etc. Service was good with a little bit of waiting which was a surprise because they weren't busy. Food was faultless. I will definitely return!

We were looking for somewhere different and decided on Las Iguanas. We were impressed with the ambience of the restaurant and how popular it was mid week. Staff greeting was warm and friendly, we opted for cocktails to drink and fixed tapas option. Thoroughly enjoyed the food and drink and the service was quick and efficient, our only criticism and...

I found this restaurant a bit soul less. The food was satisfactory although portions were small I thought..rather like children's portions. I certainly wouldn't eat there if I was really hungry. I didn't think it felt that clean. The toilets definitely need a refurb! It was a bit dull in terms of lighting. Tables very cramped together. I suppose it... More

All cocktails are pre mixed, unknown alcohol content (probably watered down) and bar staff have no skills in being able to make cocktails from scratch. If your looking for a good cocktail bar this isn't the place !

Called in on the off chance at 17:00 after work with my partner for an impromptu Valentines Meal together. When we asked for a table for two we were instantly told we only have an hour for the table as it was reserved despite the entire place having all of 6 people in at the time. Not a great first...

Great location in the heart of Mermaid Quay. The surroundings are fun and the bar is great. The choice of food and cocktail menu is extensive. The service was very pleasant ideal for a relaxed meal out. Good children's menu too.

Had post dinner cocktails on the Friday night and returned for lunch on the Saturday. Great value cocktails on the 2 for 1 menu, but do not expect the full taste of an individually mixed cocktail, but they did hit the spot ! Food for lunch was really good and exceptional value for money. Great service alround !
