Description: Las Iguanas opens its first site in the Scottish Capital, 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 Las Iguanas 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 Edinburgh is proud of its fresh GM-free food and top quality ingredients.

This place is an awesome Latin/Mexican/Brazilian place. We were getting burnt out on pub food and Las Iguanas was just the spice up we needed. Amazing cocktails that are cheaper Sun-wed! I fell in love with the jungle margarita. You can book a table, but our family of 4 walked in around 8 and got a table just fine! This place is a must if you are looking for something awesome and different!

Went for food here a couple of times during my stay in Edinburgh. There was a brilliant atmosphere in the restaurant, and the food was quick and tasted delicious. The service was excellent too. Would definitely recommend for Mexican style food and a good meal out.

I've visited this chain in Newcastle and Liverpool previously and the standard of food and drinks was always good. This was my first time in the Edinburgh branch and it definitely lives up to the standards of the others. We had the taco sharing tray and nachos with chicken and the flavours were just unreal. We devoured every bit. We had beers and cocktails and they were fabulous too. The staff were lovely and the decor was great. I'll definitely be back.

The service at Las Iguanas was very friendly. The food was very reasonably priced, as I paid only £6 for a filling meal. The food was served quickly and was very tasty. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoyed Mexican cuisine, but not to those who don't because there isn't a broad choice.

Back again to this restaurant and still very good. Very good £3.99 cocktails(not every day though so check) and great range of tapas style dishes with special offers on 3 and 5 dishes, make this good value and quite filling. Warning - the main courses are large! This is part of a chain but the quality is very good for such an establishment. Happy to return.
