Our flagship restaurant and the first one in our family, Ibérica in Marylebone is located 2 minutes’ walk from Great Portland Tube Station.
With floor to ceiling windows, it’s flooded with natural light during the day; a very special vibe takes over in the evening.

Our popular bar gets full with locals seeking drinks and tapas eating Spanish style by the bar. if you have lots of friends (or colleagues), we have an amazing private room upstairs to enjoy the fun of sharing food!

The food was great. The waiters were kind and helpful. However, we did have to order twice the same dish because between the waiters and the kitchen someone forgot our order

The food and cocktails were, as ever with Iberica, perfect. Love the small plate options that are so perfect for sharing. The place is stunning, amazing decoration and enough space between tables that you don’t feel you’re dining with your neighbours. We were just disappointed by the service, our waiter was forgetful and we felt we bothered him when we asked for more food or drinks.

I hadn't been at Iberica for a while now and really looked forward to it. The experience wasn't as good as I remembered from past times though.
My fiance' arrived at the place to get our table and was left 15 mins in front of the door waiting before someone even remembered he was still awaiting to be seated.
Our table wasn't ready as expected and staff definitely did not let us feel looked after.
Ordering a glass of wine became a struggle, alongside realising the already tiny octopus portion we were used to had become even more tiny with the new menu. 3 tiny pieces of fish and pork fat alongside for £13? The rest of the menu has also got a lot worse, spent £70 to barely eat anything.
Won't be going back anytime soon I am afraid.

After wanting to come here for a some time, this was my first visit and I came with an old friend. We had an excellent lunch and were extremely happy that we came. This is an upper middle market restaurant in an area of central London is surprisingly bereft of decent restaurants. Iberica certainly deserves all the plaudits that he gets. The design, presentation and vision of the place is breathtaking. The exclusively Spanish staff attend to you with charm and professionalism. Wine and food prices are very fair in return for the quality on offer. Tapas dishes are £6-£8, mains £15 to £25. The mainly Spanish wine list is innovative and well priced by glass, carafe or bottle. We shared some sliced, cured meat, bruschetta type dishes and five or six tapas dishes. All were excellent, the squid particularly so. Lunch for two came to £112 including a bottle of wine and coffee and service which seemed a good price for the quality and quantity of food that we had had. I’m so glad I live in London being able to enjoy an establishment like this - some of the tapas restaurants are dives - this is a fine dining location where you could happily take a date, your wife on Valentines, have a business lunch or take your mother for dinner! Highly recommended

Everything was tasty and in good quantity except the most expensive dish, the CRISPY CABRARROCA at GBP 28 which came with half of the fillets missing and there was very little food to eat on it, it also was just average so avoid this one.

The food was ok, can't go wrong with croquettes and the corn souffle was different. The service was slow but at the same time we felt rushed towards the end. One dish came out very late but the waiter kept asking if we had done and if our bottle of wine was empty when we still had half left. When it came to paying the bill however, it seemed noone wanted to take our payment.

I was quite let down by the service. We had a reservation for 10:30 pm. It is unusual to get a table so late on a weekday in London, but our train from Manchester arrived to Euston late, so I called to let them know we were going to be late and they then tried to cancel our reservation. I know every restaurant has their policies but I don´t see how they couldn´t spare a few minutes of tardiness since I have done the reservation that morning. Secondly, we had desert and wanted to order one more pint to go with it and they refused, they offered water instead. I know it was a Wednesday, and I know it was late, but the place closes at 12, and this wasn´t even 11:30. Lastly, I ordered for everyone because they told me the kitchen would close, and they served the plates even though I was the only one there... I was one person with 4 plates on my table and no guests. My friends arrived shortly after and I must say, we weren´t the last people when we left.
I felt rushed, and not welcomed.

Poor welcome from surly receptionist. We had to hang our own costs up and whilst place was not busy stand in the entrance whilst glasses laid on the table. Waitress was great and knowable however which saved the day. Food very tasty. You just need to sort the initial greeting out!!

Very nice venue all round, good service and reasonable food. The food wasn't outstanding though, and didn't change the fact that I have never yet had a good paella outside Spain. We had both paellas and the chicken was the tastier one. The seafood paella actually had very little seafood, and both paellas just didn't seem to have much in them except rice.

Fabulous, relaxed, Sunday afternoon tapas. I have been coming here for years and think that the food is currently as good as it was to begin with. Imaginative, freshly cooked dishes with decent sized portions. I would thoroughly recommend.

I have been to Iberica Marylebone several times and I am delighted to see that they have improved the size of the portions (slightly!) and the service we received from our waitress from Oviedo was excellent. Will come back! :)

Good choice of food with a variety of tapas - both classic and with an Iberica twist. Service good. Very busy and therefore quite noisy.

I booked using OpenTable and I asked in my reservation not to be seated by a window. Arrived at the restaurant, completely empty, I am given a sit by the window. A joke. Quality of food poor. I won't go again.

I have been to Iberica Marylebone many time in the past and always loved it. It has been a while since I have been and the first time I have ordered a paella and unfortunately it was terrible, completly tasteless. We called and ordered hours in advance as I know it takes time to prepare a paella properly.
The tapas and deserts were of the usual high standard and I still love the venue but sadly the paella...really let it down.

Having previously eaten at Iberica Marylebone in summer 2017 I had high expectations. While the restaurant is still lovely, the execution wasn't up to the previous standard. The menu ideas are excellent, but the preparation is workmanlike compared to the past, and to my mind didn't justify the prices. Service was also rushed, with plates removed form the table while I was still chewing the last mouthful I'd taken.

So much potential, but not fulfilled on this visit.

Really great food, one of the best Spanish tapas restaurants in London. I’ve been a loyal customer of Jamon Jamon for years and this may just have swayed me.

We booked a table at 8.15pm on New Year’s Eve. We were told when we arrived that the table would have to be returned in two hours (at 10.15pm)—an entirely reasonable condition. At 9.50pm—well before the stipulated time, a waiter told us that our table was booked and that we had to move to the bar if we wished to remain whilst he started clearing our drinks away. My friend’s unfinished drink was removed from the table and placed with the dirty/used glasses at the end of the bar, and she was not given chance to finish it. When I explained to the gentleman that we had been told that we could have the table until 10.15 pm, and that his behaviour made us feel unwelcome and that it was a shame, he simply replied that it was indeed a shame. He said that it had been a misunderstanding with Reception, but made no attempt to mitigate or correct the ‘misunderstanding’. The day before the restaurant called me to confirm our booking and stipulated that we had the table for two hours. When we arrived at the restaurant the hostess told us we could have the table for two hours. I find it hard to see where this misunderstanding occurred. The waitor then stood behind my friend whilst she was putting her coat on hurrying us out of our seats. We felt so offended and unwelcome by this behaviour that, having paid the bill, we left the restaurant immediately. I had recommended this restaurant to many friends as I have been twice before and had reasonable service and nice food but will definitely not be returning after this unless the restaurant rectifies the situation.

I've passed this restaurant 100 times & always wanted to try it out.
Terribly disappointed with the experience! The food was average & the service was absolutely awful. Food took forever to come out (some dishes didn't come at all) & it was impossible to get anyones attention. We were not made to feel welcome or comfortable & it wasn't even that busy, it just seemed like the staff didn't care!
