Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Went for Bottomless Brunch servers were very friendly, service was prompt. Some cocktails were a hit or a miss but they made sure we got our money's worth. Thank you Neha! 😻

The service was fast and they made sure we were cared for by making sure we constantly had another cocktail after we had finished

Came for bottomless brunch with my friends before a concert and had fantastic service from Alec. Kept the drinks flowing which is exactly what you want for bottomless brunch. Would definitely visit again!

First time in Cardiff and we decided to avoid the city centre and eat at Mermaid Quay. Stumbled across Iguanas and having looked at the menu we decided to give it a go. Now it was a Saturday evening (though still early) so obviously the...restaurant was busy though it wasn't full by any means and there seemed to be plenty of staff available. We were sat promptly and our order taken, it was after this that things went south. Our food came out in about 30 minutes which I thought was perfectly reasonable but wh n it arrived we still hadn't received the drinks that we ordered, these were chased up and came about five minutes later. The food was good and I enjoyed trying something new but the frozen cocktails left alot to be desired, think slush puppy where all the juice has already melted to the bottom of the glass. We finished our food and then had to wait a long time for anyone to spot us and ask if we wanted anything else, in fact I had to get up and go and ask for the bill. Now I don't want to come across as negative, like I said the food was great, and I know it was a Saturday evening but the service left a little to be desired. It was not just our table either, a couple sat next to us waited 20 minutes for drinks, then got a free one because the order was wrong and another table had what appeared to be a manger come to apologise for how long they were waiting for their drinks. I work in the restaurant trade so I know how stressful it can be when you're run off your feet but unfortunately in this instance iguanas fell short.More

We visited at 5:30pm for a meal with our toddler. The food was lovely and service was quick, but the volume of the music was just too much. None of us could hear what each other were saying. It’s a shame as we ended up...having to leave after our mains rather than stay for dessert so we could give our ears a rest! It would be fine if you were heading on a night out but wouldn’t recommend for a family meal or if you want to speak to the people you’re sitting with.More

Bottomless brunch service was so so great. Neha was amazing and brought me and my friend drinks after drinks and we never had to wait long for a drink once. Food and drinks were yummy and I would definitely recommend coming here :)

We did the bottomless brunch at Cardiff mermaid quay and we had Neha as our server. She was absolutely amazing and it got to the point where we’d blink and a new cocktail would be on our table. We also had a nice birthday suprise...which was an added bonus. Neha was a 10/10 would recommend. Legend xoMore

Have eaten here many times but sadly this time our experience wasn't great. We were greeted by a rather gawnless woman who didn't seem to know what she was doing, the manageress intervened and took us to our table, we waited a long time for...our order to be taken, the manageress took it and our food arrived quickly and was very nice. I actually felt sorry for the manageress, she is great, very efficient but her staff were frankly useless, tables left uncleared, people waited ages for their orders, I felt she had given up and I can't say I blame her. She is a lovely lady, however without decent staff behind her sadly the restaurant has gone downhill. The toilets were pretty grim too.More

Olivia was the best waitress you could ask for, I had more than enough drinks, and she was very charismatic for the whole evening, would definitely go again.

Unfriendly and on requesting a window table that needed clearing, though on looking around many other tables needed clearing. We sat and waited and waited. Had to move table as sun too bright, still no one came. The music was awful and there appeared to...be no management and short staffed, completely ignored so just got up and left, staff still not bothered and watched as we left. Bizarre place! Went to Nando’s next door, welcomed, seated and served immediately and very friendly what a difference!More
