Totally impressed with our meal tonight. Decided we would come back tomorrow before even finishing the first course!
The Iguana experience is awesome value at $110 for three courses of platters for two people. All the best bites beautifully prepared eggs marinated wings, ribs, calamari....Loved the seafood chowder, even though couldn't finish it - very generous portions.
Service lovely and a stylish comfortable environment too - would suit large groups to singles. We'll definitely be back!More
Been here 4 times. Find the food good basic food for a reasonable price. had pizza and steak cut fries on first 2 visits and found them delicious. The seafood chowder was a little disappointing but very tasty. Seafood chowder shouldn't have veg in. Hubby...had fish burger and found it very satisfying.More
Iguana's has a huge menu but sadly only two vegan options, a pizza (which was quite good) and a very bizarre salad. The flavour of the tofu in the salad was great but it belonged in a curry, not with iceberg lettuce. I would definitely...recommend any vegans looking for a place to eat in Hamilton to go somewhere elseMore
Iguana has probably the best staff and the most consistent food and service in the City Centre... which is why it's still there when so many others have failed. The menu covers all tastes and the prices are very reasonable... I've been going for 17...years, only one upset and the staff went out of their way to set things right...More

Thanks for taking the time to place your review. We really appreciate the excellent feedback and your continued customer over the past 17 years! We look forward to you visiting again soon.
Been twice now and had good meals both times. It was busy both times one being a Wednesay the other a Saturday. My husband and I had prawn and squid entree and shared the grilled platter. There was plenty of food on the platter for...the both of us. This time around I had the steak which was cooked just as I asked with chips and veges and two sauces. Steak was tender. We all had dessert, 3 vanilla brulees, which the others said was too custardy and one of them tasted very eggy and they all said they had tasted better brulees. I had the best dessert (the others agreed as well) the ice cream and sorbet huge plate which I really enjoyed. All and all for a pub meal very nice. The staff there are always so pleasant and helpful. Will be back again. They have nightly specials which you can find on their website.More

The waitress was excellent along with the rest of the staff. Very accommodating
to our order. The burger was good, but I think it was a frozen burger and not a fresh made one. The helping was large!More

We were lucky enough to be waited on from a young lady called Jade. She was fantastic. Tonight we just found the food average and did not all come out at once. The Biggest Disappointment of the evening was got told all the cocktails are...$11 but got charged $22 as we we got a discounted deal. We did get told on initial seating that there is no daily deals however they were not explain what daily deals were. We actually assumed it was like some blackboard dinner menu items. Then Jade came to our table and said hey we've got $11 cocktails tonight that were in the menu she gave us all. Hey I don't mind paying $30 for a drink if that's what I want. However to be led to believe I'm paying $11 and I'm getting charged $22 in my eyes is deceitful and for this reason alone we wont go back ever againMore
