Fabulous pre-theatre menu, with a great selection of tapas plus bread and olives and a dessert. Really good value and much better quality than the “chain” tapas places. The meat and cheese platter and the lamb were particular highlights.

The place has a nice ambiance - although the room is very high it still manages to feel human-sized and comfortable. Our Spanish waiter was delightful and attentive, and obviously very familiar with the food he was serving. The tapas were extremely good, and more imaginative than is sometimes the case. The best dish for me was the fried artichokes, but the fish tapas (steamed hake - much more interesting than it sounds - and salt cod) were also excellent. We drank wine by the glass, of which there is a good selection at reasonable price. We are definitely planning to return.

It as great, only reason I marked down was they add service even for a table of two which I thought was odd. And it’s pretty cold in there.

We had a fantastic night here. Our waiter was extremely attentive, We had recently got married and they bought us a complimentary cava, and shots. The food was absolutely delicious. We moved to the outside area after our meal, which was absolutely perfect to sit and relax under the blankets provided and watch/listen to the live entertainment across the road.

Having visited one of the London branches many times in the past it's great to see the business expansion into Manchester with a bang that is totally consistent with great service excellent food and great atmosphere. Highly recommended also makes a great change to have a sommelier that actually knows what he is doing with a decent bottle of wine .

Had a wonderful early evening meal of tapas with my wife and daughter (aged 8). My daughter had the children’s meal and thoroughly enjoyed it whilst my wife and I had 6 dishes washed down with a nice bottle of white. The restaurant is fantastic with great ambience and the service was fantastic. Will definitely be back.

We love Iberica, but were disappointed with the experience at the Manchester branch. We sent back some prawns as they really didn't taste right - we'd been to the Marylebone branch on the Sunday and had the same dish. We were polite when sending them back, but the manager then came over and said the chef had commented that there was nothing wrong with them. The way he communicated this was quite accusing and this led to a rather embarrassing and drawn out situation where we were offered something else - at this point we weren't that bothered, then the meal on the house. We insisted on paying - as the rest of the meal had been lovely (as expected), but the manager wasn't happy with us paying .... this seems like a ridiculous thing to say but he wouldn't let it lie and it became really awkward. He really should have just let us pay then and there and then leave, but it went on for ages. Just ruined the experience and the evening.

Good place for a break from the hustle and bustle of Saturday shoppers.
Food was quick and tasty.
Not made aware of any specials that could have added greater variety to the menu for veggies.
Black rice and asparagus toast were the highlights.

We were early Saturday evening, on the pre-theatre menu, which whilst good value - included some strange options. We were seated upstairs where it was quite quiet - perhaps because we had pre-booked? If I went again I would sit in the bar area and order off the a la carte menu - the bar had a buzz, and everyone else's food looked great - just not mine.

Ok food and great waiter. My only gripe (and it is minor) were the chairs. They were so low down, it was almost uncomfortable to maintain a conversation with the person opposite who was significantly higher up.

Wow, the food and service was amazing at Iberica. We ordered 12 dishes between 4 people and everydish was delicious! We didn't know the chef was a 2 michellin * , so this was a bonus. Our waiter Salva was brilliant, so friendly and knowledgement about the food and the region that it was most popular. Great night, we will return.
