The Iguana Restaurant & Tequila Bar
The restaurant and hotel building are beautiful. The service was excellent and the food was great. We sat looking out at the mountain in evening with the warm breeze brushing us. It was like a dream!
Excellent experience, beautiful Mariachi music. Fantastic evening
Great restaurant for a romantic evening!
Fantastic setting , service & food. Highly recommended.
Everything was wonderful EXCEPT the desserts. Nobody enjoyed them. Bad way to end a lovely evening
A great date night or celebration destination.
Always a pleasure to bring friends and family to The Iguana. The food and ambiance combine to make a very memorable experience. Even well-seasoned travelers are impressed by The Iguana. It never disappoints- shrimp, prime rib, fish Veracruz as well as the usual brunch items are so delicious. A big hit for our group was the chicken with mole- yummy. Add those fresh hot churros, mimosas and that dessert table and you have an unbeatable dining experience!
A memorable brunch!
Beautiful surroundings, delicious & appealing offerings & friends. Dining does not get better than this!
El desayuno buffet el domingo en La Iguana es incomparable en Puerto Vallarta. La comida, el servicio, el ambiente, y el valor son sin igual...
Went to the iguana for my birthday. Ambiance was amazing. Sat on the balcony as the sun set and mariachi playing in the background. Had a Martini, ceviche, and Cornish hen. Everything was perfect.
Ambiente excelente , los mariachis increíbles . Una experiencia à repetir !!
Special dinner during vacation. Beautiful venue, outstanding service. Terrific wine selection. Mariachi band was terrific. Menu was comparable to fine restaurant in U.S. for half the price.
It was a beautifully designed space... the right amount of history. Perfect staffing. Stunning views. Incredible food. And the mariachi band sounded like an orchestra... absolutely brilliant musicians. We were stunned at how wonderful they were. Completely unexpected.
This place is a MUST if you’re in PV. Amazing place, beautiful view and property. Excellent service, fantastic food and drinks!! Just WOW is what I can say!!
A lovely time was had By all. We always enjoy a visit to The Iguana! It is a treat for the Senses for sure! We hope to return soon!
The first person we saw when we walked into the hotel was the concierge . Poor soul, she looked exhausted and was half asleep at her desk. No greeting. We were then welcomed at the restaurant by a hostess who proactively walked towards us and quickly pulled our reservation. We were early and were offered to walk around the neighbourhood and come back or sit at the bar. We were happy to be offered the bar, we had hoped for a pre-dinner cocktail.
Food quality, portions and presentation: really good.
Ambiance and decor ranged from passable (bar area) to beautiful and romantic (the patio were we sat).
The service was very efficient, attentive, slightly scripted. The staff is constantly running due to what appears to be a multi level operation with the kitchen downstairs. Despite the heat and the fast pace, they were all impeccably groomed and looked super smart. This added to the high end feel of the facility. The highlight of the evening was the Mariachi band!!! Beautiful ensemble with superb harmony. They played a variety of classics with a 50's retro flair. I had added a note when booking that we were there to celebrate a birthday and the staff arranged for the band to come to our table to sing a brief happy birthday. My partner was moved to tears. Just beautiful! Overall a great and memorable experience.
An absolute MUST when in Puerto Vallarta.
A lovely, “old Vallarta” dining experience. Top notch, Continental food, excellent service and wonderful downtown ambiance, with very reasonable prices. Extremely highly recommended! I had a half inch thick slab of phenomenal foie gras terrine for about $16.00 USD. Enjoy!
The food and environment are both amazing! And the Mariachi band was more like an orchestra with harps horns & guitars. La Iguana is a very special place!
Holidays. Need staff who are bilingual and responsive. Ten minutes to get cream for the coffee after requesting twice.
My favorite restaurant for brunch. I love those churros! All the other food is outstanding as well. Service is always spot on and the staff have great personalities.
Well, we tried to replicate a previous experience and IT DIDN'T WORK. To start our taxi cab driver tried to drop us off at Kooky's Karaoke Bar. How that happen is beyond us. Anyway, he finally found first gear and went up the hill to the restaurant. Once inside the Concierge barely looked up without a smile to ask what we were doing there. Well, we have a reservation. She told us we didn't have a reservation but eventually found it and then proceeded to walk away up the stairs without a glance or a "please follow me". Had we not been there before, we wouldn't have known what to do.
That was just the start of our "not the same" experience. The waiter was rushing and there were only four people at the table, but the food delivery was completely mixed up. Granted, our friend who ordered steak should have know he was chowing down on delicious pork, but when they finally delivered my husband's pork as steak, the waiter at first refused to take it back and get him his pork. What were we to do let my husband take our friends plate? PS the friend loved the pork. My husband thought it was tasteless and understood how our friend didn't know it pork instead of steak.
Here's the funny thing...when we were paying with our card, the tip choice was 10% or 90%. Wow, they either think not much or too much of their waitstaff.
We have decided not to go back again and certainly won't recommend to our friends like we have been doing.
What a beautiful view and delicious food
Amazing ambience and the food and service was very good.
One of the best places to dine in PV. The Mariachi band is the best ever
We went for my friend’s birthday and had an ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS TIME. The ambiance the food and the staff were AMAZING. The mariachi band was THE BEST!!! I give this place 10 stars and highly recommend it
Always elegant with fantastic service, food and atmosphere. Perfect for special occasions.
Overall experience for Sunday brunch was lovely. Food and service were both excellent. The hot churros immediately brought to our table were delicious and a very nice surprise.
Very good selection at the buffet. Mimosas served to add a bit of elegance to the meal.
My only suggestion for moving things along, might be to have two separate stations; one for omelettes and another for Eggs Benedict, rather that one location and one chef. Bit of a wait to put in and receive our order.
We have recommenced this restaurant to others and would definitely return.
Juan is the best!
It was a very great experience
An amazing dining experience. The food was prepared beautifully and the band provides the perfect atmosphere for a great evening with friends.
It was very busy with all tables taken. Lots of birthday parties going on. We enjoyed the food and wished we had studied the wine menu more than we did. We missed the sunset as we were blocked by another table but the views are simply stunning. We are hoping to be back next year for my wife’s birthday. The mariachi band were a joy to behold, I would personally like to get them a drink. Well deserved!
Amazing food, service, and ambiance!
Ambience abounds here in a magical environment. Good food, great service, and an enjoyable evening was had by nine of us, everyone was thrilled when they left.
Food and wine were very expensive, but really outstanding. Excellent sea bass Service was rushed. Very pretty space and view, though it shows no resemblance that I could see to what it once looked like as Liz and Dick’s home. We appreciated the mariachi salute and the free dessert for my husband’s birthday. The sculpture of the couple is lovely , and the display about them well done.
We have always loved the Iguana...the food, the music, the "view", the service! But something drastically negative has happened to the food. The lobster taco which used to be delicious was rubbery...the cheese or something had changed. My husband ordered the Chiles en Nogada...the sauce to be cold, the inside to be approx room temperature. The inside was hot and the sauce warm. They replaced it with an ice cold product which the pepper was bright green - UNCOOKED - NOT ROASTED! Total turn off! Most expensive meal of our trip and most disappointing.
I was here for my birthday and everything was perfect. I’d heard about this place on YouTube when doing some research on Puerto Vallarta last year. I don’t know what I was expecting but this place exceeded anything I could have been hoping for. The ambiance, the staff, the decor, the history, and my dinner was also fabulous. I got the plantain encrusted rack of lamb and it was perfection. The pastry chef made a beautiful birthday dessert for me and the staff were friendly and helpful. What a special place to spend my birthday! It’s expensive but worth it. The view of the city is excellent. What a classy, historical place. Night of the Iguana was also filmed here. I’ll be back. Loved it.
Great food service and view. A great place for a special meal.
