Located in the heart of trendy Clerkenwell 2 minutes from Farringdon tube station, Ibérica in Farringdon is the little brother of our London family.

The main dining room at the back is perfect for intimate dinners or lunch with colleagues or friends. Local workers and neighbours usually fill the entrance enjoying cocktails, wine and tapas at our busy and popular 15 meters’ bar.

Delicious food, so much so that we had to ask for the menu again for a couple of extra dishes. Lovely ambiance and excellent service.

Food was very basic standard. Patatas was disappointing, tortilla too runny, chorizo buns were dry and hard, olives hard and not marinaded, they forgot our bread. Staff were friendly and attentive otherwise. Restaurant decor is beautiful. Would not go again or recommend.

We have visited Iberica Farringdon a number of times and felt confident it would be a good choice for a Birthday celebration. Sadly this is not the restaurant it was.
Firstly, we were a party of six and our food had been served and eaten within an hour, it felt like a fast food chain. We ordered several tapas dishes, which were of average quality and barely sufficient for our table.
Lastly came the seafood paella which contained 6 prawns (one each) and nothing else other than a very thin layer of burnt rice which needed scraping from the pan.
To top it all the toilets were dirty and unkempt.
Needless to say we won’t be returning.

Potato bravis undercooked (not that warm and potatoes looked very pale colour. Music was very loud - even when no one in, but even after people present. Again, 3 wines not on list (always seems the case). Need more than 1.5hrs for dinner. Could have gone to bar. Not warned when we sat down, just ob booking. About to cancel another booking based on my last experience.

Service was chaotic. A number of items were missed on the first order and then again on the second. Havent been for awhile and preferred the former menu. Some food items arrived cold.

A beautiful restaurant with a lovely atmosphere and fabulous food. The service is excellent and very unobtrusive. I like to visit on Saturday or Sundays when the local area is quiet and so is Iberica. It has become a favourite pre-Christmas meeting place for me and my friends.

Can’t fault the staff here! Super attentive, polite, helpful - everything you want when dining out!
Wine was incredible, food was delicious. One of our dishes didn’t reach the table but was still on the bill. We also ended up with someone elses dish before we’d even ordered (menus were still on the table). I felt it was a bit pricey for tapas (£150 for 2 people) but I’ve never dined at a UK tapas restaurant so have nothing to compare it to!
Overall, we had a great lunch and I’d definitely return!

I used to lover Iberica. The quality of the food was excellent but feel it’s gone downhill. I’ve been at the Great Portland St and Farringdon recently and felt both times the food is not up to scratch and nothing special. Very disappointing.

This used to be a good place, but no longer. Food ok but overpriced, they didn’t have several wines and service was very poor- overly casual and inappropriate comments. Will not go again, or to others in this now average chain.

Great tapas and wine, very disappointing paella. The branch gets extremely busy so the waiters are visibly stretched. Atmosphere is energetic and loud, so while it isn't great for an intimate evening, it's perfect for a celebration.

Still a great place for a bite after work. Good cocktail bar and decent selection of canvas helps.
Menu has been revisited since my last time here (a year or so ago) and while most classics are still there I felt that the selection was less compelling.

You will find generally a good service but on my Friday evening dinner staff was a bit overstretched which resulted in a slower than usual service

I visited for the first time with a guest on a Thursday night and we had a really great evening. The food was very good and surprisingly filling even if at first glance they looked small. The service from our waitress was also excellent.

Very below average tapas, dishes sent back including octopus and the squid which was poor and particularly unappetising. Bill was adjusted accordingly without any fuss, however went home hungry. Would not recommend.

A bit expensive though. We took tapas and other sort of small plays and the total was 104 with sangria included.

Everything good though
