Latin-American-style group Las Iguanas is set to open a new site in Swansea, this March 2015.
The 5,000 sq ft site will be the group's third restaurant in Wales, and be located next to Swansea Castle, as part of the new Castle Square redevelopment. It will have an outdoors area and a separate cocktail bar.
Founded in 1991, Las Iguanas serves food inspired by Latin American, Spanish, Portuguese and African flavours. The autumn menu currently features Patagonian albondigas, baked butternut squash with prawns and cheese, chicken with chorizo and cannelloni beans, and original takes on classic drinks such as the caipirinha and margarita.
The new opening is part of the brand's significant expansion drive, which has also recently seen new sites announced for Woking, Edinburgh, and Derby, the latter of which is now open.
Co-founder Eren Ali stated in late 2013 that the group had hoped to have almost 40 sites by the end of this year, and with 39 currently open, the group looks to have reached its goal.
As well as five sites in London, it also has locations in Bristol, Sheffield, Cardiff, Manchester, Leeds, Cambridge, Reading, Brighton, and Glasgow.
