I used to enjoy coming here quite often, but recently the staff seem to be rushed off their feet. Everyone is still great, just always seem to need another set of hands

Saturday early evening- waited at least 5 minutes for any sign of someone on door to seat us for a drink and bar snacks; dirty tables, sticky with drink; grumpy bar staff who looked as if they really didn't want to be there; more ice than alcohol in cocktails; at least 30 minutes for nachos to arrive and when they...

Situated in the Oracle shopping area, this restaurant has a busy happy buzz. The menu is extensive, all South American-based and interesting. The food quality was good and the cocktails were in a two for one offer. Bring on the Caipirinhas! Service was friendly but a little on the slow side, probably because it was so busy. If you like...

We had a pleasant meal. My friend had eaten there before so l accompanied her on her recommendation. She was disappointed there was little sauce on the curry she had chosen because she had eaten before and it was not if usual standard. We mentioned to waiter who said the meal was usually served like that. However, we think we... More

Visited las iguanas for lunch, sat outside as I had my dog with me (which I didn't mind) but we were completely neglected by waiting staff. For example - we had our starters, when our main was brought out, the waiter did not even clear the starters plates, they were left on the table for the entirety of the meal.... More

Shopping in Reading and walked along the line of restaurants and choose this one. Meet at the door with a warm welcome as for a table for 3, we were asked to wait in the seating area for 5 minutes while they checked, came back straight away and taken to our table. Ordered drinks and food from our waiter who... More

You kind of know what to expect at these sort of places, bog standard food, watery cocktails and overly friendly waiting staff. The waiter started as overly friendly and then disappeared so it took an age to order our food, and considering they wanted the table back in just under 2 hours seemed a bit odd. Finally ordered food and... More

Happy hour that lasts all evening? What more is there to say. Cocktails by the pitcher....for the seasoned connoisseur though Caipirinha is a must! Then follow that with superb meals...xinxin is worth a try and other fabulous South American dishes. Enjoy

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.
