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.

Food overpriced and not great. Arrived very slow - one tapas dish every 10-15 mins?! And barely warm.

The food was good when it came but it did take a little while to make it to the table. Portions were a little mean given the prices charged in my opinion

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).

The food was very rushed - the beauty of tapas is sharing various plates at leisure but when all hot dishes are served within few minutes of each other and you cannot keep the food warm it defeats logic. Otherwise quality was good but this has dampened our experience.

Always good. The artichoke hearts were superb and as always could not resist munching our way through the padrones.
Waiter was lovely and recommended the G&Ts with juniper berries and orange peel.
A fab evening

Friendly staffs and cozy ambience, good food with reasonable price in London.
Personally I liked tortilla the most, very moist and same as the one I had in Madrid. Black label jamon recommended by the staff were very tasty, it melted in the mouth. Other tapas were also very delicious.
Would definitely go back again.

We were welcomed with enthusiasm by every staff member we had the pleasure to interact with, they were all very helpful. The tapas dishes were some of the best I have ever tasted. The only let down is that service was very slow. We saw our drinks sitting for a while before they were brought to us. If you’re not in a hurry/super hungry, I recommend this place but not if you want quick service.

Service was shocking. Had to ask several times to chase items. Chicken on one of the Tapas dishes wasn't cooked properly and was cold. Waiting staff did try and make amends by bringing other free dishes but overall the food was unimpressive.

Upon arrival we let the host know that we had a reservation, for which she shortly let us know that we will have to wait for 5 minutes as the people before us,are currently paying. 20 minutes pass by and we see people with no reservations getting prioritised, which is ridiculous, and we are still waiting. When we finally got our table, we were informed that we "should only try and order 2 fried plates" as the fryer wasn't working. We asked for sparkling water, around 3 times? Overall, disappointing. We shouldn't have paid for service.

Some plus and minuses for my experience:

Minuses:

- one frying station was not working so we could order 3 fried items at the time other wise we were going to wait longer to be served;
- ordered a paella and this could not be done (apparently for the same reason of the missing frying station);
- ordered a dessert which was not available.

I might have gone to the wrong day!

Pluses:

- very nice warm ambiance;
- waiters were polite, informed us in advance of the frying pan issue, apologised for the above minuses and offered a digestive to compensate;
- not too loud and could have a nice conversation with friends I was at the table with.

Tortilla was a tad bit bland, bread with tomatoes were a bit too salty and the seafood paella was a bit bitter but all in all it was ok.

Went for a family dinner. The speaker was right behind our table and music was a bit loud, soon the waitress immediately turned the volume down and the atmosphere is great! All the tapas we ordered are fabulous! Desert is delicious (coffee flan is heavenly). The only disappointment is the seafood paella. The taste of seafood did not, unfortunately, penetrate into the rice. Everywhere else is on-point.
Still highly recommended and will definitely come back again.

I had the New Year's Eve Set Menu here and though service was slow, it was very friendly and accomodating. The food was incredible and amazing value. I had about 10 starters and 3 mains and everything was exquisite. My favourites were the chorizo lollipops, pulpo, scallop with cauliflower, the cocktail, croquetas, lamb, venison and beautiful churros! Foodie heaven :)))

Extremely poor service - it took 90 minutes in total for us to get our food, and it took 50 mins and 3 reminders to get tap water. The food itself was fine - some dishes were very good and some were OK. It's also very expensive for what you get. Wouldn't recommend.

Table for 2, early booking 12noon, restaurant wasn't busy - we ordered 6 tapas between us, the Twice Cooked Lamb arrived 40mins after everything else. The Braised Oxtail was overpowered by the Saffron Sauce which was a shame as the meat just fell apart. We asked for ice in our soft drinks, only to be told that the restaurant had run out of ice, odd! The bill for the two of us was just over £80 (the restaurant automatically add service charge on your bill), so it's definitely not a value for money restaurant! The £1.65 change from our payment was given in 5 and 20 pence coins and just put on the table - apparently not only had they run out of ice they did not have any coin denominations other than the 5 and 20 pence pieces!!

A busy lunch service meant a slight delay but some apologetic patatas bravas went down well. I wasn’t a fan of the oxtail but that is probably personal taste. Overall a pleasant lunch with ok food. No complaints.

Customer service poor. Waiter was rude to me and i requested to speak to the manager. The manager didn’t hear me out, all she said was ‘no she’s not rude because I know her’. Food was also trash and not worth the money at all. Avoid if you can.

sad and disappointed.
Booked and stated it was a birthday lunch.
Service was pretty woeful, unenthusiastic, mumbled, had to ask twice for water (we had two children with us) and had to ask for a children's menu.
Never asked if we wanted another drink, only paella waiter asked if meal was ok.
Paella was not at all crispy as expected and mentioned in the menu.
Shame as we enjoy Spanish food and there are few options in London.

Good vibe with nice interior overall.

Too noisy to listen to your partner right in front of you sitting, also the food wasn’t really a good deal, wasn’t authentic as I’d lived in Spain for a while before.. A bit too sweet or creamy, the amount of the food was not enough- we ordered for tapas for two of us, never enough so had to order the fifth one..

Food and service was good. Paella was amazing as usual. It was however quite noisy so difficult to speak/hear across the table. Perhaps turning the music down a notch would stop people trying to speak over it?
