Ibérica is located right below the Zig Zag building, just 5 minutes walking from Victoria tube station.

Our bar downstairs or the terrace outside are the perfect space for a quick lunch or after work drinks and tapas.

We have a specific menu at the bar with Spanish pinchos (tiny tapas) to nibble while you drink. And bocadillos (Spanish for sandwich) to take away or eating in.

Our best kept secret of Ibérica in Victoria? A small private room in the main dining room upstairs that fits up 6 people!

The management decided to save on the outdoor heaters. It was cold and windy and made the overall experience not so enjoyable.

We ordered octopus tapas + seafood paella and sangria.
The service is good and everyone is very polite, the location is good and central so you can have a nice walk in the area. Yet we thought it was overpriced for these reasons:
on the menu it said the sangria was for 8 glasses but you end up having 5 glasses instead, it's light and a bit watery for all the ice cubes used; the octopus was one single tentacle (with mashed potatoes and a sauce) for 15 pounds and it wasn't even tender (overly cooked or just the quality of the octopus); lastly the paella which was overall very nice but had one big problem: prawns had the intestine and a good chef/cook should be able to remove it before serving it! So you end up making a mess to remove the intestine and lose some of the fish.

Was offered a blanket and was never given one. I asked three times from three different staff members for a blanket before I got one, this was pretty ignorant of the team. The food was underwhelming, and over priced for what it was including the wine. There was confusion between the waiters and waitresses over our dessert and lack of understanding towards our experience there. Not coming back here again sadly.

Iberica never disappoints. They always bring reinventions of the typical Spanish mainstay dishes and add a touch of newness brilliantly executed.

This time around we ordered the Pulpo (A+), Ribeye steak (A+), Padrón Peppers (can they ever be wrong?), Avocado & Tomato (A-), Aubergine steak (B+), Gambas/Prawns (B-).

Ambience was quiet but a nice crowd of people, and it's off the street and has the building ceiling so it's quite nice and dry although sunless... the terrace is a bit windy and cold, they gave us some nice blankets but I think they should either install some wind barriers or invest in heaters / they should be a great investment in London where it's always cold outside.

Perfect place for quick business lunches, practical and quick service.

Food here is delicious and having looked forward to the croquetas, they did not disappoint. The pulpo was also very tasty. The service is friendly, helpful and knowledgeable although they were very busy hence occasionally it felt like we waited awhile for food and drink to arrive. I would highly recommend as a place for enjoying wine and very tasty tapas.

Good food overall. The aubergine steak was rather bland. The patatas bravas were great, and the crema catalana was excellent. However, it was poor value for money, and the price of dishes makes them not worth it in my opinion (except the dessert, which was fairly priced).

It was too cold and windy and they didn’t have heaters. I understand it was Saturday and busy but the service was slow. The food was decent but for that problem it should have been better. Overall a mediocre experience.

The staff were lovely and attentive. The venue was nicely decorated and nice seating outside. The food was very tasty but the prices were ridiculous for what you got. I was hungry when we left as the portions were skinny and extremely expensive . Wouldn’t return to the value of money aspect . I have better tapas and decent sized portions for much better prices

Outside of course and in the shade a little chilly. Refurbishment of Ivy next door noisy. Tapas as good as ever, nice selection of cured meats, Patatas bravas and croquettas. The seafood paella was good, but went cold very quickly, would be better left of the pan on top of a burner to keep hot. Wine reasonably priced although the winelist inaccurately stated 2010 when the wine was in fact 2019!

I believe it would be a great spot but I surely chose the wrongest day. Because of the location of the outside patio the wind was just unbearable. The food was frozen cold after 1 minute due to that and there was no heating or kind of fence covers to make it more comfortable. Had to run away before bday dessert as it started to be upsetting. About the food, there are some really great plates and some overrated and overpriced ones. Service basically non existing.

The overall experience felt average. Not at all what I usually expect from Iberica.
Currently the only seating is outside - surely a need for patio heaters I was surprised that none are available. The sitting area was cold and the food only lukewarm. The staff huddle inside to keep warm. This is a shame I have visited this restaurant many times and have always enjoyed it. Please raise your game to cope with the new normal.

Food was good but not anything special. It also became very cold quickly as we were outside and the plates weren’t hot. Outdoor heaters would also be good as definitely chilly... a suggestion which seems to be a common theme in these reviews.

The staff is lovely, super friendly and helpful! Food was good, but nothing super special... the tapas we had were quite good (croquetas, pluma iberico and octopus), but the seafood paella was a bit disappointing, lacking in flavour. Good portions though! Ambience wise, I'd have expected them to put something to block the wind outside or heaters, but they haven't done anything of the sort so it got *pretty* cold! Bit of a shame, as you can tell the restaurant (ambience wise) is lovely.

Needing an outside place to dine with friends, Iberica popped up as an option on OpenTable and as I had eaten there before, decided to book. Despite it being a rather cool, and very windy evening, we had a lovely meal, great service, good food and wine. A shame that they ran out of my favourite Padron Peppers but everything else was very good.

Staff are very helpful and attentive; food is great, we had the paella which was nice however a strong sort of char taste to it from the prawns; a tad overpriced in some areas but good as a 'once in a while' sort of place.
