Las Iguanas

Tel : 573550 | 7-8 Jubilee Street | last visit : December 2005

Ten out of ten for effort with this new venture in a newly developed street along side the new Library.  Las Iguanas really wants us to love it but unfortunately the best rating they're going to get is "quite nice".  That may be a bit harsh, there's nothing actually wrong with the menu or the cooking, and the atmosphere is certainly helped by the 2-for-1 BOGOF drinks offers.  It's just all a bit of a fake and that's proving difficult to hide.

The bar though is an instant hit, cool, quite cosy and with a decent cocktail list (including a 10 year old cacha├ža).  It's already become a top local drinking den.  So, go for a brazillian themed tex-mex if you fancy it but make sure you hit the bar after.
