we had a punt down the river and then sat outside in the sun at Las Iguanas with cocktails and olives and bread. It is right by the River Cam and you can see all the activity as people get on and off the boats, Cocktails and nibbles were really good and the service was excellent, the atmosphere is really fun and relaxing.

Had wanted to come here for ages and went there on a sunny Saturday afternoon. It wasn't completely packed so very easy to get a table, but there was still a good atmosphere inside. Outside was absolutely packed though, people enjoying one of the finest locations for a meal in Cambridge.

We ordered some cocktails and hadn't realised it was 2 for 1, but the barman advised us and was extremely friendly.

We got some nibbles and they were delicious: chicken quesadilla - delicious, calamari - also delicious, but a small portion, gambas - very nice, but messy to eat with the shells on.

I must say that the vibe was great, the staff excellent and the food very tasty. Looking forward to my next visit!

The food at this place is lovely but what lets it down is the slow service. We waited 15 minutes before our drinks order was taken, it was then taken by a waitress who was very abrupt. Another 15 minutes for our drinks to arrive. Even longer to place our food order, longer still for the main to arrive. Food was fab and the chefs are being let down by the lack of waiting staff! Biggest wait was to be offered a deserts menu and get someone's attention to ask for the bill- we gave up and even though we wanted desert we couldn't face the wait. A real shame!

Ate here on Saturday afternoon. Sat outside to watch the hen parties go by. Arrived at 3:30pm and ordered drinks and daughters lunch. Waited and waited for the waitress to return... Had to get cutlery myself. When another waitress appeared she asked me the time (4:05) and then said "after 4pm we don't take orders, you have to go to the bar". I said "take this order or you will be job hunting". So she did.
The food was ok. Wife had halumi salad and I had a burger. I didn't go inside but it looked chaotic at the bar. Nice to sit outside in the sun. Service is shocking. I live in Cambridge but it's the first time I've been here-plenty of other places.
