Rapidly becoming a local institution in Leeds, Las Iguanas is tucked away opposite the Corn Exchange on Cloth Hall Street. Step through the door at Las Iguanas and you will be immersed in the lively ambiance of Latin America; sit outside and you might convince yourself that you are in Havana. Las Iguanas is the favourite city centre haunt of chic Latinos, and anyone looking for relaxed Latin dining.
Refreshingly, the restaurant achieves the impression of being independent although it is part of a chain. The atmosphere is intoxicating with rich colours, Latin rhythms and cuisine that is prepared and served by people who are passionate about what they do. Las Iguanas brings a magical blend of the traditional and the unfamiliar, with fresh ingredients and authentic recipes. Expect to find mouth-watering regional specialities with distinct Spanish and Portuguese influences. The informative menu will take you on a journey across the southern hemisphere.
At the start of your meal, a selection of sides and starters will give you a tapas style taste of the variety on the menu. Dishes are wittily named with titles such as ‘The Cuban Revolution’ and ‘The Extraordinary Xinxim’. On the menu, each dish comes with an explanation of its Latin American name.
The restaurant provides organic baby food and mini versions of dishes for children. Ethical diners will be happy to know that the fresh ingredients come from the best possible sources. Las Iguanas insists on using GM free produce wherever possible. They support native South American businesses so you can enjoy coffee which is Rainforest Alliance certified.
