The food and the prices on the app is different than in the real menu. There are no tapas.
They put as in an awful table next to the toilets.
The heating was not working and when I asked to turn it on they told me they were out of gas because the provider didn’t send it. It was Sunday so I think they had freezing customers for 3 days.
Not worth the money. The food was good but the portions are small.

The location and ambience was lovely. However our food didn’t all come out together, and when it did it was very salty, the chicken was tiny and didn’t have much meat on it. We also had difficulty when it came to paying and it seemed like the staff were actively trying to ignore us. Such a shame and definitely not worth the money it cost us.

Absolutely wonderful, start to finish. The service was perfect, food delicious and prompt, the experience evoked those wonderful evening meals one has when on holiday, somehow right in the middle of the soulless steel jungle that is Canary Wharf they have created something warming and joyous. Would not hesitate to recommend and will return for sure.

Great location but they only want to give you an hour to dine and the waiters are hard to get hold of despite them being nice. Good food very tasty and fresh but small plates

If you charge £9 for a 125 of wine you should make sure you don't take 10 minutes to serve it to the table that's next to the bar.

Atmos nice. Location nice but cold bc of the wind. But that's nature.

Really disappointed. Area I was sat in was freezing with no heaters in the upper terrace. Got given the wrong side and I had finished my main dish before the correct side had come back out. Won’t return to be honest.

Our visit did not get off to a good start when problems clearing other guests meant that we were 25 minutes late getting to our table. Standing around on a chilly night was not great especially after I had been sent away for being too early and asked to return when the booking was due.
After that it was all much better. The staff were friendly and efficient. We were given a glass of Cava as an apology for being kept waiting, or it might just have been that everyone who booked through OpenTable was getting one since I spotted later that there was some kind of offer.
The menus were downloaded using a QR code and there had been no attempt to make them 'mobile friendly'. It is really unforgivable when you will have to use a mobile to have the menus as large PDFs that you need to scroll around. It actually makes working out what is available difficult.
We ordered some wine, a bit overpriced for what it was, and some of the wonderful ham. From that point things got better and better. The bread and ham was a great starter. The selection of vegetable accompaniments for the main course included many not usually seen, such as artichoke. The steaks were good and the ribs very tender. The sauce on the ribs was a bit too vinegary for my taste but it was as advertised.
We were close to the speakers which meant the base was intrusive but not so loud we couldn't talk.
As the evening wore on the place became quieter with fewer people around.
Overall, a good experience in the restaurant even if we had got off to a bad start standing outside.
Finally, a quick word about COVID. Temperatures were taken as we entered and people were asked to wear masks while they m oved about. There seemed to be a lot of, mainly men, standing around with drinks at times. I assume that the staff were asking them to sit down or move because they tended not to there for long. All the staff wore masks so once seated it felt quite safe.

Always a wonderful experience to eat at Iberica La Terraza but today was extra special especially after months of lockdown. Such a warm welcome, terrific atmosphere, great food and superb service. Really great to see the place so busy and so many people enjoying themselves as we head back to normality. Thank you.

Lovely atmosphere and great service. Only downside was the food. We were all vegetarian and the options were limited and not very enjoyable. Just baked potato and baked sweet potato as far as I could see? But I’d definitely return for drinks and atmosphere

Me and a girlfriend went for dinner, the outside dining area was beautiful and was in keeping with the current government guidelines. The food was amazing and our waiter Jack was lovely, taking the time to talk us through the menu and make recommendations. We booked a table for later in the month as soon as we left, great evening.

Great service and delicious food. However the outdoor seating that was outside of the main restaurant terrace area was absolutely freezing! Would have been nice to have had space heaters or something for that area.

Aweful!! We requested next to a heater, request ignored. They put us at the top area where ir was more windy. We were soo cold that had to leave without finishing my drink. The waitress ignored us when we mentioned we had booked on the condition of being next to a heater.

Food is good, albeit not what I expected, was disappointed there was no children’s menu, although child friendly. Our service was good, table was low to the ground so a little difficult to eat (suited more drinks only)but almost better for the children to relax. We had good weather so it made it a pleasurable experience.

Lovely place to have a drink, friendly staff... but my key piece of advice would be to avoid the food at all costs. Overpriced and uncreative, very disappointing compared to Iberica's restaurants before the pandemic. I appreciate the past 13 months have been ridiculously challenging for restaurants, but lowering the quality and increasing the prices certainly isn't the answer. We had:

- Octopus: we got a plate with 2 sad tentacles sitting on it. No garnish. No additional bells and whistles like mash or boiled potatoes, for example, which are cheap and go really well with octopus. Cost: £20, or £10 per tentacle. It was nice enough but not outstanding.

- Red prawns: 5 tiny prawns, shell-on, sitting on a bed of salt. Really hard to shell, which suggests they were not particularly fresh. Cost: £17.

- Pluma Ibérica: I reckon about 100 grams of grilled meat all by its lonesome sitting on a plate way too big for its contents. Just the meat. Cost: £18.

The best element of that meal was the bread and olive oil, which is quite telling.

So... go have a drink in the lovely terrace by all means. But unless you're about to die of starvation, I'd suggest avoiding the food.

The service charge was shocking, they added about £18 on top of the meal. The plates weren’t big, the sides were cold which was a little surprising. If it wasn’t for me being excited to eat out it would have felt like a wasted night SMH

Great to be back there, one of the nicest spots to sit outside. Of course, the menu is a bit restricted, but still a treat to be there.
Tables are well spaced, bio- security looks good, staff very welcoming.
