Las Iguanas, Deansgate, Manchester…..


Latin American restaurant favourite Las Iguanas is sporting a new look on Deansgate in Manchester this spring.

Celebrating in style, they showed off their recent makeover while guests mingled with carnival dancers and enjoyed dinner and cocktail masterclasses showcasing Las Iguanas’s own cachaça, the Brazilian spirit used to make the famous Caipirinha cocktail.

The restaurant has been transformed with a larger bar, wall graphics inspired by the team’s travels in Brazil and Argentina, a plant wall with flashes of neon and festoon lighting looping across the rafters. The menu includes the best of Latin American food cooked from scratch by the skilled team of chefs with treats such as peanut and prawn maracanã, Havana Club and jerk BBQ glazed pork rib and Fiesta enchilada, or guests could enjoy delicious vegetarian, vegan or gluten free options, alongside classic and quirky cocktails created using premium spirits. And it’s Happy Days at Las Iguanas with 2 for 1 cocktails all day every day.

Las Iguanas’ new spring menu launches on 2nd April.

‘We live for food, and to bring food alive – with an irresistible bolt of Latin American energy. We rise at the crack of dawn to unload boxes of top-quality, fresh British produce. Then our chefs add carefully sourced ingredients from around the world, to conjure delicious, authentic South American food, made with passion, love and lots of Latin magic. Our food pulses with its exotic 16th Century roots – a mouth-watering confusion of native Latin American Indian, Spanish, Portuguese and African influences. Las Iguanas is an adventure. You’ll discover new tastes, and fall in love with new favourites – and feel the warmth and welcome of South America’.

Our ethos is refreshingly simple. We want to bring authentic South America to every table, every day – in a place that lives and breathes Latin. We use the freshest food, and the highest quality ingredients. We source from the best possible places – and try to be GM free. We’ve been with some of our suppliers for many years, and proudly support native South American businesses, like our coffee supplier, Daterra (who are Rainforest Alliance certified), and our cachaça partners, Magnifica, who grow our very own organic sugar cane – mixed only with local spring water during distillation.
