Came here for my Birthday with many friends. We all had a fabulous time. The drink menu is huge with all kinds of very exotic drinks from all over Latin America perfected to be very authentic. They have a lot of happy hours here. My wife and I are Latin and this place get's our seal of approval. The food took longer than expected, so we got some appetizers on the house. This place is also very kids friendly.

The service was good - friendly barman who couldn't be more helpful.

Unfortunately the food was pretty poor. I had a burger, "fries" and extra jalapenos.

The burger was okay, the fries were dry overcooked pieces of hard pseudo-potato and the extra japalpenos were just a few straight out of a pickle jar slapped in a dish.

Overall good staff but poor food that was too expensive for what it was.

Booked on-line and turned up 15 mins before booking time but wereshown to our table straight away. With the exception of the barman who took my first drinks order, the remainder of the staff were unfailingly polite and cheerful. The surroundings are pleasant with just the right amount of light & background music. Menu was varied (within the S.American theme) and portion sizes were perfectly acceptable. Drinks were a little over priced but I suppose thats Oxford. All in all a very pleasant dining experience.

We visited Las Iguanas in Oxford last night. It was our first visit to a Las Iguanas and it certainly wont be our last!
The host was excellent and very "on the ball". We had a lovely waitress who was friendly and professional.
We had calamari, albondigas and quesadillas to start. The calamari was delicious and extremely fresh, the meat balls seemed to be homemade with a spicy sauce and the quesadillas were yummy.
The chicken for main course was extremely good value and the skewers were tasty and well presented. We couldnt manage dessert, which was a shame.
Thanks for a great experience, we will be back with friends.

I came here on my birthday, and was treated very well indeed, our first round of drinks was on the house, and the food was great. Staff were friendly and attentive, would definitely go back.
