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!

Interesting and tasty dishes- all quite small- but the bill £188 for 4 people- was a tad unpalatable. The two portions of ham- £50 seems excessive. Coffee was free since they forgot to get it for us.

The restaurant was very hot, asked if they could turn on a fan or aircon which they did. The food quality was not great and in some cases lacked flavour. The tomatoe bread had too much salt, the aubergine steak totally lacked flavour, the patas bravas sauce tasted like Mayo mixed with ketchup. Was not impressed with the food but the service was good. I won’t be recommending for food but would pop in for a drink.

We were very pleased to have been placed on a private corner in the restaurant. The staff were very professional, polite and patient. The tapas were very very delicious. The only bit of a let down was the paella rice. Everything else were worth the price and value. Will be recommending this place to friends!

The menu changed drastically since the last time I was there, with very little options for the original dishes.
The music/noise was too loud and it was hard to maintain a conversation.
The service was great and we enjoyed ourselves!

I was not overly impressed by Iberica but then I was expecting great things. The tapas are very expensive and the best value one we had were the croquet as which were very good, authentic and plentiful. We had the seafood paella which wasn’t plentiful, it was tasty enough but not outstanding. I’m used to a Spanish paella where you can’t eat it all, this was a thin layer on the bottom of the pan. More rice please.
The wine as you might expect was stupidly expensive, £42 for a bottle of Rueda Verdejo and the staff were not knowledgable about the wine list. The menus are on an app which is just irritating and frankly unnecessary - and the food is a separate app from the drinks. We were told 45 minutes for the paella - which is fine, good places cook it fresh - but it actually came in much less time, so the croquetas I ordered were both unwanted and unnecessary.
I just think this could be great but it’s a tad overpriced.

Meeting family for first time in eighteen months, so glad we chose Ibérica. Staff were friendly and attentive, all felt very safe Covid wise and food was great as always. Croquetas delicious, really nice fresh dishes like tomato salad, lamb very tasty and desserts were a hit. Gracias to the team for a lovely evening.

Very disappointing. We’ve been here multiple times and it’s our go-to special occasion destination. Yesterday’s experience was significantly below all previous visits. A much reduced menu missing some classics, some food clearly pre prepared not fresh and service (which is normally brilliant) was lackluster at best. I’m
Not sure whats going on here Ibérica but sorry to say, we won’t be back.

Excellent experience at Ibérica as usual. Lovely food, really pleasant and efficient service. We were given a table in an empty part of the restaurant, which is set out to allow social distancing, so even though we were inside it did not feel crowded at all. Prices are not particularly low but then this is a direct reflection of the quality of the food and wine.

The menu is much reduced (possibly due to covid, but no pre-warning of this!) and the bravas sauce has been changed to some sickly sweet recipe. The food is average but the prices are really too expensive for basic tapas, which is what this is.

Responded on June 3, 2021

Hola Foodie lover, Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience with us. Although Ibérica is recognised for our classic Spanish tapas, our biggest motivation is to share with you the diversity of flavours that each Spanish region has to offer; possibly, that is why the menu might seem slightly limited or different to you, as we work with seasonal and regional ingredients. Why don't you join one of the many tasting events? Maybe you will find your next favourite tapa! We look forward to seeing you once again! Warm regards, Ana María Mosquera Customer Relations Team

Excellent to return to Iberica post-lockdown. Fantastic service. Our request to move tables in order to be slightly away from other people was no issue and we were seated in a lovely corner surrounded by books with a great view of the restaurant. Our waitress was incredibly helpful and recommended some great dishes. And the staples (toasted bread with tomatoes, tortilla and croquetas) were as good as we remembered them. Looking forward to going back soon.

Very disappointed with our visit. Pre pandemic we were fairly regular visitors but we will not be returning.
1. On arrival there was no concern about us "logging in" but they were very concerned about taking our temperatures which is not only intrusive but completely unnecessary.
2. The menus were on an app which we had to download to our phone. Again, totally unnecessary and very difficult to read on the phone.
3. The tapas selection has changed to the extent there was not much tapas on offer and it was very expensive.
4. The cheapest decent wine was £45.00
5. The service was terrible. We know that not all the tapas comes at the same time but we had to wait a good 15 minutes between the delivery of the the first lot, potatoes, and anything else.
6. Definitely much too expensive for what it was, not value for money in any aspect.

Overall, the food at Iberica was excellent (not least the churros) and there is a nice variety in the menu! the setting is also quite nice and well curated. Probably because of the many months of lockdown, the service was a bit rusty and there were a few hiccups - but I’m sure as the team gets back in the habit these issues will be solved.

Service is terrible. We had to flag the waiter to get wine, food, dessert, it was ridiculous.
When food finally came, it was the wrong dish. The waiter never came to check so he had no clue.
We had a great experience there in 2019. We’ve gone back three times since and each experience has been progressively worse. I don’t recommend this place; it’s a waste of money and time. I won’t be returning.

We’ve always loved Iberica (ever since we were hanging out at their summer garden in canary wharf). Today was just as great. We had patatas bravas, jamon iberico, croquetas and a cava sangria. Always better in person than delivered. Doesn’t disappoint, especially after a long lockdown. Would just suggest they re-expand their sangria collection (they used to have 3-4 types).

We would totally rushed to finish the meal. Took 20 mins to put orders in, the food arrived all together and most of it lukewarm and 1 hour into the meal we were told we had 10 mins to finish as there was another booking. Our allotted time was 90 mins. Pretty disappointing. Shame cos we used to love it

It’s a great venue. The food was ok, but not outstanding. Our patatas bravas were not very hot and the tomato, avocado and basil dish resembled an island of quartered tomatoes sitting in a - deeply unappetising - sea of green liquid.
The aubergine steak was impressive and the croquetas were tasty.
The cocktails are excellent.

We were delighted to return to Iberica on the first night possible after Lockdown. We felt safe, there was good distance between the tables and the waiters all wore masks. The food was, if that’s possible, even better than usual. Luckily we booked as it was busy. It was obvious that the lovely staff were as pleased to be back at work as we were pleased to be there.
