Located in Cabot Square, our restaurant and bar in Canary Wharf is the perfect place for after work drinks and tapas, escaping the office for a quick lunch or relaxing over a Spanish meal on the weekend.

Choose between the busy ambiance at our bar and lounge area downstairs or a quieter table on one our mezzanines, which also make the perfect setting for a Spanish style corporate event.

Check out Ibérica Canary Wharf’s little sister La Terraza, a unique outdoors bar and restaurant, opening every spring throughout the summer.

We had such a lovely evening and were delighted to be treated to a complimentary glass of fizz for my birthday.

Poor service on a quiet Sunday,with very average food.
Whole thing only enlivened by a large and noisy family group. 😁

Our waiter was excellent, extremely knowledgeable. The food was good, however I do think that charging £3.50 for a couple of bits of bread to mop up some sauce is excessive when they did not even bring some olive oil with it.

We love it! By far one of our favorite restaurants in London - and we eat out all the time. :) Must orders: croquetas de Jamon, gambas, tomato bread, half and half selection, pluma, chorizo lollipops, sangria (also the non-alcoholic version is great, they offer both) and the cheesecake.

A delicious food, interesting decor, lovely staff & ambience, complimentary aperitif, a few steps away from DLR Canary Wharf. It takes a long time to get the meals ready. Worth waiting though. I would definitely return.

This was our second visit.First time here it was packed but we loved everything about the place.This visit not so good,food was lovely but we were sandwiched between two other tables when place was half empty we had to ask waiter over to take our order,he could hardly speak English and we felt that the level of service we experienced the first time was not present this time round and it was half empty

Great location, convenient for business lunch. Tapas were great quality, amazing olives. Avoid the paella, advised it would be 35' prep time but ended up closer to 50, chicken was sparse and full of bone fragments.

Really disappointed in my visit.

I understand that at a tapas restaurant the dishes come out when they are prepared but the timings of the dishes coming out were really odd. There was a long gap between plates arriving at our table and we ended up leaving before all of our food arrived.

We ordered about 9 plates, a mix of veggie and meat dishes. We ordered at around 8.30pm. Five minutes after our order all our veggie dishes came out at once. (Tomato bread, x2 patatas bravas and aubergines) We ate slowly and picked at them because we wanted to enjoy our meat dishes with them. It was around 9pm that our first meat dish came out which was pork sliders. We had mostly eaten all our veggie dishes as we couldn't wait any longer and the patatas bravas we saved to have with the meat were cold by this point. My Aunt doesn't eat pork so she was still waiting on the other meat dishes (prawns and lamb). It got to 9.15pm and we asked about our other dishes which the waiter said was coming. We waited another 5 minutes then decided to just get the bill. At this point the prawns showed up but we just wanted to leave. There still wasn't any sign of the lamb.

We were told it was miscommunication with the kitchen? The restaurant didn't look too busy so I don't understand the long gap between dishes. The staff and manager were apologetic and nice about it and gave us shots (But two of us don't drink). It was still a really disappointing night, my Aunt basically had bread and potatoes for dinner. I booked this restaurant well in advance as my family were visiting London and staying in Canary Wharf for the weekend and I had enjoyed my previous experience at Iberica Farringdon. The food we did have was really nice I must say but the timings were just so odd.

I have been to this restaurant several times before and in fact was looking forward to the treat of some great food & wine, however this was overshadowed by the poor service given on this occasion. We were seated to a table that was only just big enough for us and had to ask for everything: menus came, no offer of drinks to start, no follow up with food order which again I had to ask. Several tables came in after us and had food infront of them before we had even ordered. All in all a total disaster which based on previous visits was the complete opposite of what we were expecting. I have to say the food when it did arrive was excellent but unfortunately the night was soured by the complete lack of customer focus. I had spoken to the waiter during the meal and when asked by the manager if everything had been ok I advised her that the service had fallen very short of what is normally a great night. I will revisit and hope that they were just having a bad night and maybe short staffed.

There was a warm welcome and professional greeting when I arrived at Iberica. Service was really good and most of the food was very authentic and seemed to be of great quality. A cut above the Tapas that can generally be found in Britain.

The food was served far too fast, with the "mains" arriving with the starters which meant that by the time we had finished the starters the tapas was cold.....

It seemed they couldnt wait to get us out of there.

I booked a table here for a birthday and the staff made the experience very special. The service was excellent and they even came out to sing happy birthday and put a candle in some churros! It was a lovely touch. Overall, Iberica has a calm and charming atmosphere. The food is lovely and was considered authentic by the actual Spaniard at our table (who especially loved the secreto from the menu).
