My second visit there. Food is amazing. Staff are amazing. Lovely environment. And the icing on the cake was a free desert and shot after one of our main dishes was delayed for a while - minor mix up and we didn’t even complain.

We’ll definitely be back soon.

Special mention for our awesome waiter Matteo 👍😊

We ate in the Leeds branch a few weeks ago and it was outstanding so we were really looking forward to trying somewhere closer to home. There was no interest or coordination from the staff whatsoever, they just couldn't have cared less. The food was ok, but not as good as Leeds. What a pity.

Food was excellent with the exception of the lollipop chorizo was a bit of a let down.
We were sat next to a large party which was a bit noisy.
Compared to other tapas restaurants it was a bit pricey.

I had a salad that cost 6 pounds and something and it was the tiniest thing ever.
My husband had the cheese trio after his meal. OMG! The slices were almost see through!!
Quality was good and so was service but saying it was overpriced is an understatement.

My experience was very bad in general. I'm from Valencia and when I read in the menu "We serve traditional Valencian dry-style paellas" I ordered one intermediately. The Valencian paella is complete ally dry and that sentence convinced us. When they serve +d the paella I was very disappointed, the paella had different ingredients and, it was not dry at all.

They are clearly cheating on purpose, otherwise you don't write "Valencia dry paella" in the menu.

To be hones the "Pulpo" was nice but I don't like to go to places that are not honest trying to confuse clients to make money.

My experience at Iberica was only average. We waited a while to be given menus and when we went to order drinks, one of the three bottled beers was not available (I personally think restaurants shouldn't ever run out of one of their choices of alcohol, especially on a Friday night). Then, when we ordered our food, we were informed there was no calamari left. Then, when it came to dessert, one of the desserts was unavailable too. I was disappointed as this was in three areas where we had limited options. I also think the option to only have gin as a double in unreasonable, as I would never drink a double measure with a meal and I don't think many would. We also had issues with our antipasti being served after our tapas (the server was very apologetic and they gave us bread and olive oil to apologise). Whilst the food was lovely, we were disappointed at the fact the restaurant had run out of several options (our table was booked for 7pm on Friday). As there was issues with service too, we think that the restaurant was understaffed.

It’s an interesting place to eat
Tapas were very food and well prepared
The only deception was the dessert

Service was very good at the beginning when the place wasn’t so busy then it became slow

Very fry though

We were disappointed in the service provided. The paella dish was supposedly ordered and when we had eaten our other dishes we were told there was a delay and eventually the waiter advised that it hadn't in fact been ordered. In fairness to the company, we were not charged for any of the food provided. Not sure that we would recommend the restaurant to others.

We did feel it was quite pricey for what you were getting on the plus side our 14 year old daughter has a severe allergy to nuts and they were fantastic when dealing with her order.

We were in early on a Sunday this time- so not terribly busy. Food is always good, service can sometimes be a bit slow in this place. However, most of the time it is fine. great menu, reasonably priced drinks. We will be back.

Lovely restaurant, it was my first time visiting and I really enjoyed. The service was lovely, staff incredibly helpful. The food was great and the cocktails excellent.

Pretty limited vegan selection but I was offered a menu with vegan options highlighted. One of them was sold out on the day, and after I ordered another the server returned to the table to say they’d made a mistake and it wasn’t vegan after all. I appreciated the effort made to accommodate me, I really do appreciate it, but I’d love to see more options if I was to return.

Possibly going at 2.30 on a Sunday was not the best time to maximise the ambiance as the restaurant was virtually empty. The young waiter still managed to give us weekday lunch menus that we pointed out were invalid. Wine prices on the bar were also deceiving as prices by a 500 ml carafe and not a full bottle. When we pointed this out the young lady said she didn't do it and shrugged but I notice the cost was amended by the time we left.
Food ordered came promptly and was delicious especially the aubergine and secrete. Bread needs to be reconsidered at £3.00 for 4 tiny slices served with olive oil. This is fine for a nibble but Spanish food deserves a big canasta of bread to soak up sauce and have with cheese and jamon. We spend £9.00 on bread and oil alone.
There seemed to be a friend seated across from us as the chef , restaurant manager and other staff spent considerable time around that table with much hilarity which given how quiet the rest of the restaurant was became a tad irritating.

Was it worth £149.00 ... well I think we would return but be smarter in our time and ordering and maybe take a small loaf with us

From the moment we walked in to the moment we left we were looked after by the most attentive staff. We were a party of 3 spending the weekend in Glasgow on a girlie weekend to celebrate two of our birthdays. Before bringing out the drinks we had ordered, we were surprised with a glass of champagne each to celebrate! The food was amazing as were the drinks a bottle of Rioja and the most amazing creamy espresso martinis. We struggled to get a cab back to our hotel but the staff didn’t give up even finally running into the street to flag down a passing cab for us. A great experience which I’d recommend. I’d been for lunch at the Manchester restaurant which was why I booked the Glasgow one and was not disappointed.

This is one of my favourite restaurants that I have ever been to. The food was absolutely incredible, the staff were receptive and friendly, and the atmosphere was wonderful. We went there for my partner's birthday and we were greeted with 2 complimentary glasses of prosecco to celebrate. I was also pleasantly surprised that the prices were so low for the quality of food received. Absolutely nothing bad to say, we loved it.
