Had to wait ages for main course then again for desert. Good food, was cooked well and staff were friendly but overall very slow service.

Las Iguanas Meadowhall is THE NUMERO UNO place to eat in Meadowhall. Great Latin American food, brilliant staff and great service. My wife and I decided to book for a belated Wedding Anniversary meal here. We arrived early but this was no problem. We were not kept waiting - we were shown straight to our table, and had the menu clearly explained, as well as the Happy Hour cocktail menu, which incidentally included non-alcoholic drinks, We were not pressured at all and the whole experience was wonderfully enjoyable. We had visited here once previously and I have to say that the new refurbishment is amazing. It opens the whole restaurant up and the whole ambience adds to the experience. We shared Nachos for starter, and it was plenty for two! My wife had Chicken Fajitas, and I had the Full Enchilada with chicken. We were both too full to even contemplate a dessert, but will have to come back for that delight. Well done to all the staff, especially Scott and Siobhan - very pleasant, very professional. Can't praise this place enough.

Los Iguanos automatically add a service charge to the bill. When the waitress brought over the card machine she inputted the full amount plus tip then told me to follow the instructions and answer yes or no for adding a tip. I pointed out she'd already included the tip. Surely she knew that??? As to the food - the tapas were simple but tasty but the steaks overpriced and over cooked. The cocktails over sweetened and basic in presentation. Definitely won't be going again.

Thank you for your feedback. Our menus clearly state that service charge is optional but will be added to the bill for parties of 5 or more and as you mention this was shown on your bill. You are quite at liberty to not pay the service charge if you so request. The standard 'gratuity' option on the PDQ machine is cleared by pressing the no button as part of the payment process which you did. I'm sorry if you felt this process was misleading. If you would like to contact me by emailing lucy@iguanas.co.uk with your phone number, name, trip advisor ID and a copy of your bill and receipt we'll be happy to refund any service charge that you didn't wish to pay. Lucy- Las Iguanas

Visited here on Saturday 3rd May and it was delicious. I had a enchilada with spicy chicken and other half had a fish curry and the we shared churros.

Only downside was service, we would of had another drink if we could of got attention before the bill was given
