Great staff with good explanations of the food and recommendations. Wanted for nothing In there and the food was timely and absolutely wonderful. A taste of Spain. The Iberia pork was the best I have tasted in a long time.

Service was excellent and staff members were friendly and attentive, especially our waiter. We went for the Pre Theatre Menu which was really good value, although the choices are quite limited. The food was excellent at first instance but when the second and third course arrived, they all pretty much taste the same, the food was quite salty and overpowered some food that is blander in taste. The atmosphere was great. It was a great visit!

We were told we would have to wait an hour for paella but it came in half an hour and we weren't impressed for the price! Also, they forgot to serve one of our tapas dishes but it ended up on the bill. Service was shocking even though it wasn't particularly busy, we were having to ask for drinks and the bill as the waiting staff rarely attended to us. Disappointing!1

We have bene to Iberica in Leeds as well as Manchester. Both experiences were first rate. The food is really good, and the menu offers a lot of choices for those less keen on a meat focus. The staff are outstanding - friendly, just the right level of attention, and knowledgeable about the food and wine. We took the wine recommended anmd were really impressed. It is also very godo value.

The most disappointing meal I have had in Manchester for the price . The portions were small and poorly cooked
The paella was the worst I have ever had either in the UK or in Spain . The rice barely covered the bottom of the pan , there were probably a handful of green beans scattered around and the few pieces of chicken were microscopic and the very cheapest cuts from the chicken . Basically just skin and a few bones .
It really was disgraceful . I told the waitress that it was a very poor paella and her answer was that it was because the ingredients were from the U K!!!! When did we start growing rice and green beans in winter ??
I will NEVER return .

The food was really poor. Everything was cold and over cooked. The staff didn’t even ask if the food was good or okay or anything. Wanted to complain but didn’t want any of the food remade and coming back to us. Came here once before when it opened and it was quite nice so we decided to try to it again but what a mistake. Everything was awful. The prawns they used were mushy which makes me think they were frozen. There wasn’t anything good in the six dishes we ordered. Very disappointed and a waste of £80. Won’t ever go back.

Our first visit. The service was exemplary from booking, through reception, to table service, and farewell. The Choice of drinks - and especially wine- was excellent. The food portions were just right and appropriately priced. The quality of the food was excellent. The decision to have the bar downstairs and the restaurant upstairs works well. I will return and have no hesitation in recommending Iberica.

Visited on a Friday evening for my partners birthday. I've been to many tapas smaller independent tapas restaurants so was a little unsure of what to expect from a larger chain restaurant. I was pleasantly surprised and there was not a single dish I didn't enjoy (we ordered 3 each to try and get a good mix of meat/fish/veg dishes) plus the essential Patatas Brava ... the crispy aubergine was a winner ! Wine was good and restaurant surroundings were nice. Waitress was very attentive and I can't wait to return again soon !

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.
