Our family were invited to try out Las Iguanas. Las Iguanas’ ethos is ‘to bring authentic South America to every table, every day – in a place that lives and breathes Latin’.
Every dish is cooked to order and reflects the diverse mix of influences that make up South American cuisine. Classic Mexican dishes fajitas, burritos and enchiladas and regional Brazilian curries like Xinxim or Moqueca are Las Iguanas specialities
I confess I had not heard of this chain of restuarants at all but we are foodies and love dining out so gave it a go.
It was a glorious sunny day and we loved that you could choose to eat indoors or al fresco.
The menu offers so many choices and I found it quite overwhelming. I don’t like menus which give so many choices that it is daunting.
The levels of customer care were great with our waitress sitting down with us to explain various dishes on the menu. She also enjoyed we took full advantage of the Happy Hour deal with 2 for 1 cocktails.
The quality of the food was amazing. It was wonderful to experience so many different taste sensations.
My son said that he liked the food but felt that the decor did not get over the South American theme strongly enough and that he would have liked more information on the suppliers of the ingredients.
I don’t know whether it was the time of day that we went but I found the vibe a little lacking too. After the meal which was superb, I found myself quite keen to leave rather than hang around as the atmosphere seemed quite flat.
There is a kids’ menu of a main course, dessert and one drink is £5.90 offered mini burgers, mexi-pizza, quesadilla, fish strips, tacos or meatballs. As ever my son went for the mini burgers! All kids’ meals come with a salad of crispy lettuce, cucumber sticks, carrot sticks baby tomatoes and pepper to help you on your way to five-a-day.
Next time we visit, we will go for tapas where you can share three dishes for £13.80 or five dishes for £23.00 before 7pm.
