Beautiful restaurant and delicious food. Service was excellent and our server explained the menu concept to us very well. It was a little expensive in comparison to other restaurants in Leeds City Centre and the menu is quite limited but I would definitely visit again.

El mejor restaurante de Leeds sin duda. Comida española de verdad, igual de buena que en España, algunas cosas incluso mejor (los calamares por ejemplo). Sirven la comida muy rápido y el ambiente es precioso. Volveremos sin duda.

The food was nice, if a little pricey. Staff were very pleasant but no mid meal check back to see if all was well and we had to ask where one of our dishes was as it was taking an age.

Another excellent evening at Iberica as usual the food and presentation was excellent and very good service given that this was a busy Friday evening. Excellent selection of drinks the detraction was not enough options in the lower price brackets. A rather noisy party on next tables were rather intrusive but not the fault of the restaurant . Serves to remind us that mid week reservations are usually quieter. Looking forward to the next time. Thank you Iberica

Some dishes were tiny and not good value - bouqerones dish could be bigger for what you pay - most other places fill a plate but there were about 6 anchovies on a plate ! Bit disappointing

Me and my friend are gluten intolerant. There is not much choice for us and it lacked on this side of things. The food we chose was pretty bland and there was no seasoning on the meat. We have eaten there several times and it has been great but this particular time wasn’t a favourite!

Over priced. Very few diners in attendance over the lunchtime period. You need to re think your pricing due to the competition in Leeds

Also location of table was near to air con so food went cold quickly

service was attentive and food was okay but nothing special

The food was lovely and staff were friendly but this restaurant is massively over priced. £67 for a two course Tapas meal for two without any alcohol. It’s no wonder this was the only Tapas available for an early evening meal at short notice in Leeds on a Saturday night...

Leed's best kept Spanish secret!
Iberica is situated in one of the finest buildings I have had the pleasure to eat in. High ceilings beautifully decorated with large art deco chandeliers and oil paintings tastefully hung on the walls, it truly is a beautiful and inspiring setting for a dinner.

The service was good, nothing amazing! They had run out of four of the white wines, so we only had a choice of one wine.. but luckily it didn't disappoint.
We ordered a range of tapas to share between 3 of us, 2-3 plates each and a cheese and meat selection. This was MORE than enough food, and gave us ample opportunity to sample a lot of what Iberica had to offer. I particularly enjoyed the crispy aubergine, chorizo lollipops and patatas bravas! Some of the food was a little avante garde, and I didn't quite understand what I was eating, and as a keen foodie, this is something I'd like to learn more about! I think to improve the experience at Iberica, the waitors should explain each dish (which may be more unfamiliar to the customer) just to give a clearer idea of how the concept was created.

All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed the food and the building itself is a reason to go back, absolutely stunning. Very impressed! Thank you

Sadly was really disappointed with our dinner at Iberica Leeds. A few weeks ago I had visited Iberica Victoria for my birthday with friends and was blown away by the quality of the food. I was so excited that I came home and planned a trip with my boyfriend to the restaurant in Leeds. The service was pretty slow - we didn't get asked for our drinks order for about ~15 mins and then they took about 10 minutes to arrive. It wasn't especially busy but understandable for a Saturday night. The service for the rest of the evening was great - unfortunately the food was not.

All of the dishes were bland and just not as tasty as they had been in London which was a shame - in particular the fish dishes (which were the ones I had enjoyed the most in London). The gambas were not garlicky at all, in fact they tasted overwhelming of red wine - and not a fresh bottle at that. The squid ink rice tasted like off fish and the calamari very 'wet'.

I hate to be negative, especially about a meal I was so looking forward to but I feel for the price and the quality of the food (which I have to say was presented beautifully) I was disappointed.

We have previously had an excellent meal at Iberica so this was a rather disappointing experience. The service was immaculate but the food was mediocre at best. Two of the tapa (the hake and the salt cod) were borderline unpleasant and many of the rest were over seasoned and left an unpleasant taste in the mouth. The best was the simplest - pan tomate

Great setting and beautiful building however the food was very average. Half n half meat/cheese board had hardly any cheese on it. The calamari was chewy and the rest was pretty standard for a middle range chain restaurant. Unfortunately we left feeling quite dissapointed as this place had come recommended by a number of people....maybe we were just unlucky. Much preferred the food at pintura.

Absolutely phenomenal! Gorgeous food, great choice for tapas. Everything was delicious. The drinks were great, cava sangria is superb! I would highly recommend. We didn’t feel rushed after we had finished even though it was a Saturday night and that meant we could finish our drinks in a leisurely way. Perfect!

We thought the bullding was fabulous - beautifully decorated, calm and lovely - really contributed to our enjoyment of the meal. The food was mostly divine - perfect Croquetas, fabulous crunchy aubergine, ham, tomato bread... the only small criticisms..... the Chuletiillas - tiny lamb chops were overcooked and a bit dry. The Rice Pudding was very creamy - but not enough rice in it!!!
It was a great venus for us and we will definitely be back!
