Las Iguanas


Las Iguanas’ vibrant restaurant will take your taste buds from the beaches of Brazil to the streets of Mexico to the steak houses of Argentina and beyond. The menu comes to life with dishes that are always made from scratch using quality & fresh ingredients. You’ll also be spoilt for choice at the bar with over 40 fun cocktails & mocktails that are 2FOR1 all day every-day.

With the recent launch of their new menu there are fifteen new dishes taking up residence alongside the classic favourites, like the Xinxim and Moqueca, Fajitas & Burritos. The ultimate showstopper, the Maracanã sourdough bread bowl, spills over with butternut squash, palm hearts, spinach & peppers in a cheesy tomato sauce. 

With 25 new cocktails to try & their brand new sharing cocktails, there is something for everyone at Las Iguanas. Grab your mates & get ready for The Pearly Queen; a porn star martini for 6 to share, served up in a giant conch shell for added glam.

The veggie/vegan & gluten-free menus are bigger & better than ever this spring. If you're in the mood for something a little lighter, try the delicious Green Quinoa Salad with avocado, lime, okra, coriander, sultanas and pink pickled onions on a bed of spinach, with a poppy and pumpkin dressing topped with pretty edible pansies – a vegan dish full of goodness & flavour.

Step into the Latin American party with the brand new range of bookable packages that offer amazing savings & a solution to all of your get-togethers! 

Try your hand at mixology with the brand new cocktail trunks - includes all of the ingredients needed to make 14 Havana Club rum Mojitos or 20 Las Iguanas Magnifica cachaça Caipirinhas. You can also book a Cocktail Masterclass with the trunks set up as mini bars, the perfect activity for parties.

Whatever you’re celebrating and whoever you are celebrating with, celebrate with Las Iguanas every day!
