About Las Iguanas Glasgow
I booked for my husband his daughter and myself to go along to celebrate my step daughters birthday.
Eleanor, our waitress, was so helpful from the start. Recommending cocktails and dishes for us to enjoy. She was very attentive and was never far away to deal with our requests.
I will definitely make a point to return. My husband and I quite often arrange to meet in town on a Friday after work and tend to look for somewhere exactly like this restaurant.
Excellent pre theatre
This is the first time friends and I tried this restaurant and we were pleased with the food and the atmosphere. We will be back.
Latin American restaurant and cocktails
Las Iguanas Glasgow is a fun, Latin American restaurant and bar on West Nile Street. It is an open plan space with a theatre-style kitchen so that diners can watch the chefs in action. The large patio windows are great for people watching and, during the warmer months, the windows are opened out and tables are set on the pavement. Parties are welcome while children have their own menu.
Spanish, Portuguese and African influences
The main menu at Las Iguanas has dishes from Mexico to Brazil via Argentina – all influenced by the culinary traditions of countries as diverse as India and Spain. What all the dishes have in common is that they are made from fresh ingredients; the kitchen makes over 30 salsas and sauces each day.
As well as a selection of tapas, popular dishes on the menu include peri peri chicken, steaks and burgers from the grill; fajitas, enchiladas and great sides such as guacamole and cassava fries. More exotic dishes include the Brazilian xinxim – chicken and crayfish in a creamy lime and peanut sauce.
