THE taste of Latin America is coming to Southampton.

Las Iguanas will open its first branch in the city at Westquay shopping centre.

The new 180-cover restaurant and bar will offer a selection of fresh Mexican, Brazilian and Latin dishes.

Customers can also opt for the bottomless brunch, and two-for-one cocktails are on the menu all day, every day.

Matthew Stansbury, operations director at Las Iguanas, said: “We’re delighted to be bringing our iconic flavours of Latin America to Southampton.

"Whether it’s dining out with family, popping by for cocktails with workmates, or big groups of friends indulging in our bottomless brunch, we look forward to welcoming a new wave of customers in the city soon.”

The restaurant has been decorated with the brand's signature tropical green plant walls and flashes of neon signage.

It will be awash with lots of sky blue and soft sandy yellows, evocative of Brazilian beaches.

There will be plenty of dishes to choose from, including fajitas, the Copacabana Burger, and the North Brazilian classic, Xinxim.

The opening date is yet to be announced, but Westquay will be Las Iguanas' 45th site.

It is part of The Big Table Group, which also operates Bella Italia and Café Rouge, with over 150 restaurants across the UK and Ireland.
