A fair choice if accompanied by meat eaters - Edit

With branches all over the UK, Las Iguanas is a chain providing dishes from Latinamerica.
There is a fair range of vegetarian dishes on the menu, however, only few vegan ones. There is a special menu for vegetarians and vegans and those who want to eat gluten free though.
I opted for the Portobello Mushroom Fajita (made vegan by request).
I got fried mushrooms with some vegetables, tacos and separately guacamole, a hot sauce and hot peppers.
The food was good and the portion was filling, but all in all with too much oil for my taste. Furthermore, I couldn't help noticing that the vegan option of the Fajita was simply the regular one without any cheese for the same price (13,95£).
Service quick and friendly.
More vegan options would be nice. If you want to go out for dinner with meat eaters, las Iguanas is a fair choice.

A Few Vegan Options Avaliable - Edit

This restaurant offers several vegetarian and vegan options. When you turn up, just ask for the vegetarian/vegan menu. It's great that they offer a separate menu, on which everything is vegetarian, and the vegan options are marked with a (v). The vegan options they offer are delicious, but unfortunately limited. I think there were about 4 vegan main course options, and unfortunately none of the desserts were vegan. The staff are friendly and it's a nice atmosphere.

Pros: Friendly Staff, Great Food

Cons: Limited Vegan Options

Very good - Edit

We were positively surprised when we arrived at the restaurant and asked about vegan options, and the waiter gave us a fully dedicated menu for vegetarian and vegan customers.
There are not many main vegan options, but the ones that currently exist are delicious.
I had the Bahia Moqueca and my husband had the Mushroom Fajita. Waiter was very friendly and knew about vegan options and ingredients, or was happy to consult with kitchen if necessary. When turning a dish from vegetarian to vegan, he also suggested extra side options to replace the non-vegan side that was not going to be part of the dish.
Portion sizes are really good. Happily going back again.
