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 was great. Real spanish tapas dishes. They are not very large, so make sure to order enough different ones. But then again, that's part of the fun, trying all these different things.
Waiters were a bit overwhelmed, but always friendly.
The only thing I will never get used to in any British restaurant, is the noise. I'm not used to almost shooting at moments, just to have a normal conversation. But that is not typical to this restaurant alone. it is typical to the entire London night scene I guess.

A very busy evening, hence were given a tiny table for 3 people which was a constant shuffling of plates and dishes. Also some of the usual favourit tapas were not available. That was quite disappointing. However, as always, everything was very tasty and wine recommendations superb.

Ambience, good. Service, good. Food, not my taste.
Too salty paella, too small portion of dishes compared with the price. My uncle literally ordered fries to make him feeling full (and I think we four ordered quite a lot...?)

Good quality Tapas venue in the heart of the business district. We enjoyed shared dishes for lunch and some excellent Spanish wines by the glass. All the classic Tapas dishes were available but the chef's specials made it distinctive. We liked lobster with fatty pork, crispy 'confit' artichoke and well marinated anchovies.

Disappointing menu selection - the menu has changed since my previous visit. Needs far more Tapas dishes and less large meals. Bring back the Chorizo Lollipops, calamari etc.

We went on Saturday evening post movies, arrived just after 8:30. Looked like a good date night venue, but found it lacked atmosphere. The tapas options were great, but the paella was burnt. Then around 10:00, the staff started to pack the restaurant up around all the patrons still dining. Overall not a great venue for Saturday evening's 👎😞

I've been to Iberica many times, but if this was my first, I wouldn't go back. We felt rushed throughout. The staff were very friendly but kept rushing us to order the food and then the dessert. The kitchen closed soon after we arrived - why taking late bookings to then rush customers?

The squid and prawns were very average, the steak tiny but good. The croquetas and bravas delicious. The rest of dishes were good.

It was a huge disappointment. There's a hair among the fish in the egg omelette half way through it. My boyfriend ate the eggs and refused to touch the cods after that. The octupus was cooked really well though, so not sure how I should rate this meal.

Highlight of a weekend trip to London.
The food is delicious especially the croquettes. The food is brought to you over time so you're not swamped and dishes don't go cold. Lovely staff especially Maria and the young man who served her tables.

i've used to regard Iberica as one of my favourite spanish restaurants in London. I've taken there parents, in-laws, close friends and husband on many occasions and it had always been outstanding. Quiet, great home made food, great menu and great service.

What a shame that this is no longer the case... not only the Spanish omelette had zero flavour and was undercooked, or under heated as we asked for it to be send again and it was same thing, the menu had changed for a lower value higher priced, the venue was extremely noisy with music, the service was rushed and the quality had degraded massively.

Sorry Iberica, you won't see me again; get back into improving your quality in all aspects or you will keep losing customers.

The food here is very expensive for what it is and the tables crammed in in a cafe style which would be fine in a cheaper tapas cafe but not when spending this much.
We ordered 8 plates between 3 which was not really enough and even those were strung out over a long period so we weren't really mixing and matching flavours but eating a whole plate at a time so it didn't get cold.
Disappointing

Hola alisonr, It is unpleasant to hear that you've had a disappointing experience as we work hard to ensure all our guest are comfortable and happy. It seems like the menus were not explained to yourselves too well. All our dishes are delivered to the table as they are ready so it means each dish has a different timing therefore not all the food will arrive to your table together. We hope you give us another chance in the future to show you what a real Iberica experience is like. Elena Madruga

Recently visited Iberica with my partner and was truly impressed.
We were greeted and made to feel welcome immediately by the host and shown to the table and handed over to our waiter Rafik.
From here the food and service experience was great. Rafik catered to all our needs, he helped suggesting food, and even went to the kitchen a few times to ask about certain things such as, asking what the brand of Olive Oil they serve with the bread was as this was just fantastic. He had a sound knowledge on the regions of the food, especially being from Spain himself. He was very proud to pass on this knowledge. This only made us feel more comfortable and enjoyed the experience more. This guy was great. As the restaurant and his section got busier, this did not mean the service started to go down. He was managing his section so well, actually would have been nice to see maybe one of his colleagues asking him if he needed a hand.
The only downfall came towards the last half hour of our night. We were already informed right from when we walked in that our table would have been needed in about 1.5 hours from the time we arrived. We told the host this was absolutely fine, and we didn’t plan to stay for a long meal. We did not like the fact that the host just came right to us and once again reminded us and hurried us that the table is needed in half an hour. If this was needed in a couple of minutes and the people were waiting I would understand. I would suggest maybe next time rather than coming directly to us, for her to go up to Rafik who was taking care of us and ask at what stage of the meal we have arrived and how we been doing. On that point, two other tables of 2 near us had not even half of the amount of food and drink we had, so the money made from our table compared to the other two is something else maybe to take into consideration. Our spend per head was about £80 were other tables im sure didn’t come even half as close. So who should you really rush away?

Hola KIaraN, Thank you very much for your review! We will pass on your wonderful praise to Rafik and ensure we reward him for this hard work! he really is super! We are very sorry to hear that you felt rushed on the evening,we do not intend our guest to ever feel that way.We do remind return times of the table to all our guest to avoid delays and long waits,specially on the busiest time of the year as it is on Christmas. We hope to see you again soon. Elena Madruga General Manager

We were a party of 6 and were given a table upstairs.
The food was good except for the croquettes that we didn’t like. The paella was delicious. However it was simply impossible to enjoy the meal as it was too hot. We asked for the heating to be reduced but it wouldn’t change anything and the entire evening was spoiled.
We probably won’t go there again.

I have been to Iberica Canary Wharf several times. The food is always exciting. There are also some excellent wines. I have two issues. Firstly, the bar man didn't know what a cosmopolitan was. Secondly, it is a bit pricey. For example, a gin and tonic is £12. The bottle of wine we paid £46 for, can be purchased for £11 including delivery, from Vinissimus!!
However, I will still go back.
