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.

Las Iguanas is a real favourite among our friends - the food is always good and the happy hour 2 for 1 cocktails is amazing. On this occasion a table of 11 of us went for a late meal - our drinks order was taken really quickly and drinks brought. Our main course was also quick considering how many of us there were, and the fact that it was a busy Wednesday night, but unfortunately 2 side dishes didn't arrived - we asked about them but by the time they arrived the people who'd ordered them had pretty much finished their meals.Someone else at our table found hair in her meal which is never great.. to their credit though that meal was not added to the bill. The food and cocktails were as good as ever but on this occasion the overall experience just wasn't as good as usual.

Love Las Iguanas for the happy hour cocktails and delicious food. I always find the staff in the Reading branch friendly, although this is a busy branch!

After walking out of the GIraffe restaurant next door following a 15 minute wait and several unsuccessful attempts to get the staff's attention, I was pleasantly welcomed into Las Iguanas with a warm smile and friendly walk-through the menu and drinks specials. This is not fine dining, but the latin-inspired dishes are generous and the cocktails good value. I thought the burger buns were too large, but my son really enjoyed his - they removed all the extras as requested and it had a tasty flame-grilled flavour. It is what it is and I would definitely have lunch there again.
