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 Las Iguanas 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 Exeter is proud of its fresh GM-free food and top quality ingredients.

Regularly come here for drinks and food. The service is always great and delicious food and drinks! Would definitely recommend for a nice meal out or to chill out in the upstairs bar area.

We visited Las Iguanas midday on a Wednesday, we were seated fairly quickly though our order took a while. Our waitress, who I believe was called Michaela, was fantastic (I hope this feedback is passed onto her), but there was only her and her scarcely seen manager on the floor, meaning service was a little slow. Michaela didn't stop, keeping herself busy and waiting on the tables with a fast turnaround. It was just a shame she had little assistance, as she was so well suited to service and deserved someone to assist (all we saw of the manager was her awkwardly carrying a few plates out). The food was fairly good - the meatballs and chilli were quite pleasant, though the Cuban sandwich was sadly quite bland and stodgy. Drinks were pleasant. We will return, but having been in on an evening for drinks previously - where there were more than ample staff - we would choose this for dinner over lunch.

We came late in the evening on a saturday. They were still serving food, friendly and welcoming, even though we were a late walk in. The service was good and there was plenty of choice on the menu! The food was good all round, other than an over cooked steak! But service was great and enjoyed our evening.

The place was not busy when we arrived, but there was some delay in getting to order our food. The waiting staff did apologise for the wait, and thereafter everything was fine. Lovely food.

The industrial décor with hard surfaces everywhere meant sound travelled and so it doesn't feel particularly relaxed.

We are regulars at las iguanas as the food and service is always great. We came here recently and they had changed there menu, we both went for the bread bowls with prawns and they were delicious. As always the service was quick and very friendly, we can’t wait to come back and try something else!
