This restaurant is lovely from the minute you enter the door. It’s housed in a beautiful building and has the feel of a good evening immediately. Food was delicious, served in a relaxed manner. Only blip was that one of our bigger dishes was forgotten, it came quickly once we reminded the person looking after us. It’s not cheap by any standard but this restaurant makes for a perfect evening out. I was with my two daughters and all of us enjoyed it greatly.

We left after without being served for two times since arrival

This is so sad. I had booked tonight a table for two, my husband and I. And the Spanish waiter was not polite, in addition it seemed that management was sleeping too.
We entered at 19.30 after being rearranged our appointment. The table was nice, but the service very very bad: undesirable.
The waiter, a young Spanish guy abandoned us two times: one without saying anything after leaving suddenly the bottle of the water on the table. The second one, came to justify because we should have understood him since there was a list he presented us he had to serve. Suddenly came the third time and said that he was sorry but the booking were too many.
I answered that I pay so I pretend to be served, and he replied shamelessly that he was working. After this behaviours we left!!

Now, a couple of things:
1) It is not fault of the client if the restorant cannot hold the number of people ( as the guy said)
2) Management should have been vigilant and say also sorry for this behaviour which nobody did
3) If I pay and pretend service, this means that with whole due respect salaries of employees are paid by the customers who frequent and dine in like me.

Very disappointing experience,

Quality of service and attention to diners was inadequate and much inferior to that experienced pre-lockdown. Over-stretched staff resulted in basic errors and omissions. Front of house and floor management invisible, forcing diners to 'ask all the questions'. A frustrating evening which disappointed, especially on the back of previously very good experiences, albeit pre-pandemic. Whilst the quality of food was OK, it no longer stands out amongst the numerous tapas-inspired restaurants now available in the city. I previously considered Iberica head and shoulders above the competition and therefore worth the premium. Now needs to raise its game, which I hope it does, as the interior decor is still outstanding.

Front of house not good. As a customer I don’t need to know there is a table timing issue, then during our meal be told we were running over time. Not good !

OK moan over … the meal was excellent. We went a little off menu but the waiter was very obliging. The service was second to none. The waiting staff were very attentive, the menu was explained to us and we were made to feel very relaxed.
I can recommend the white Rioja 👍🏻

Good food but on the pricey side considering they are tapa's. Dishes range from £9 to £15 and you need around 6 dishes. Drinks again on the pricey side nearly £7 for pint of lager.
Building and decor was beautiful so worth the price to eat in nice surroundings.

Amazing food they forgot to bring the muscles we had to remind them 30 mins after eating by then we didn’t want them so I asked for them to be taken off the bill. The waiter asked us if we wanted deserts we said yes 40 mins later we had to ask for menu it wasn’t that busy service just ok they need to step it up….

Very overpriced. Poor service. £90 for 6 tapas and a half bottle of red with service charge automatically added to the bill.I know tapas comes out when ready, but one of our plates was so late it arrived after we had finished our drinks and we thought it had been forgotten. Food not overly hot or tasty..very uninspiring. Won't be returning.

I recently visited Iberica with my partner for a working lunch. We took advantage of the Sherry Tasting Experience, which was fantastic! We were both super impressed with the range of drinks and the excellent accompanying nibbles, plus the expert information provided by the bar manager re: the different sherries and how these were produced. All very interesting. This was topped off with the usual outstanding tapas that this places serves, in the extremely cool surroundings of the restaurant. If you get chance to try one of their experience events, I would whole heartedly recommend you do so!

You enter through a solid old door into a beautiful tardis, the warmth and ambience is lovely. The staff were attentive and well presented.
The tapas was delicious along with a good glass of wine id certainly recommend a visit.

As a regular visitor to Spain I thought the tapas was authentic and tasty although a number of the dishes on the menu were not available
The service was very slow. Lots of waiters wondering around doing little and avoiding eye contact
Wine was good but extremely expensive.
The food was not cheap and portions small
In all a disappointing occasion

I’ve been a few times Pre Covid and had delicious food. This time the food wasn’t as tasty and some of the dishes had risen in price by £4!! Overall, very expensive tapas with veggie options averaging around £8 a plate. I’ll probably try somewhere else next time. 3 tapas, dessert, coffee and a shared wine, £42!!

A little disappointing compared to past experiences here.
The food and service were fine but average. TThe servers were lovely but we did have to wait/ask for lots of things e.g. cutlery, ice for luke warm water. The food was fine (meat and cheese board, bread, mussels and octopus) but not as great as I'd remembered.
Unfortunately the place, especially the toilets, really needed a good clean. The toilets were smelly, the table was sticky and the fabric chairs covered in stains. This marred the overall experience.
Not really good enough for what you pay here. A real shame and I hope they can improve as I'd love to have the same great experiences I've had before.

I attended at the weekend with my friend who is a veggie and the food was awful. The prices were extortionate and we spoken to the manager stating we thought the food wasn’t nice, thinking we could get some alternatives since we were still very hungry. The manager was very rude on approach and proceeded to kick us out when we were explaining ourselves. Will never go to this restaurant again!

We would like to inform all of our future guests that this review is inaccurate and false. The guest was asked to leave after using obscene language very loudly in the restaurant and for disturbing other guests. After declaring we had ruined her night for providing a dish that she had ordered and then swearing about it, she declared that would refuse to pay the bill. At that point she was asked to leave as we do not tolerate any abuse towards our team.
