We had paella - which takes two people to want to eat it. Having been on holiday to Spain we had eaten it before but the staff felt the need to tell us what we were about to eat. Unfortunately the serving was much smaller than I’ve eaten in Spain and there were no crispy bits but there were plenty prawns and seafood. The big surprise was the octopus and potatoes with a garlic paprika mayonnaise which knocked my socks off we had this to share as a starter. It was a spectacular dish.

Iberica was a very pleasant experience to dine at. I was dining with my partner and we decided to go for 3 tapas per person as suggested by the waiter. We had the pulpo (suggested), the scallops (suggested), the chorizo lollipops, the twice cooked lamb, the artichoke hearts, and the patatas bravas. All of the items were amazing; fresh, a great balance of flavours, and extremely tasty. My favourites were the octopus (pulpo) and the chorizo lollipops that came with a pear aioli. The octopus was cooked perfectly, slightly charred and so tender, it was a delight. I have never had such tender octopus. The chorizo lollipops were amazing as well, although quite fatty as there was a lot of aioli (but I enjoyed that very much). The pear was subtle but you could definitely taste it and it was delightful. Also, I had a pear cider from Galicia and this has became my favourite cider flavour! It was very refreshing and tasted great. Overall, the staff was very kind and attentive, the ambiance was lacking a bit of liveliness but it was probably because we dined at 5pm. I really had an amazing experience at Iberica. I will surely come again!

We were greeted with warm welcome and 2 glasses of cava to wish us a happy anniversary which was a lovely touch. We sat on the terrace near to all the hustle and bustle of Spinningfields and were treated to the live music from the pub opposite. The food was delicious, the service was great and all the staff were very attentive. A 12% discretionary charge was added onto the bill which I don’t agree with for a table of 2, I would have tipped more if they’d have left it to us to sort. That’s my only grumble though, all in all a great way to celebrate our anniversary and great for small and large parties alike.

In Manchester for just one night and found Iberica. The food was incredible. They have a nice wine list, and we started with a meat and cheese board. They had a special Galation menu: the white asparagus, Queen Scallops and Ocotpus dishes off the specials were incredible. The asparagus has a being sea asparagus on top, with a white sauce and some crunch. The octopus was tender, on top of buttery potatoes and plenty of paprika. The scallops were served on shell, with a spicy crumble on top. Finally the chicken with rice was excellent, if you don’t want to wait for the paella, this is an excellent choice. Finally, the beef meatballs were incredibly flavorful.

The service was excellent, and Claudia took great care of us.

High recommended!

As always, amazing food and service from Pepe. Everything we ordered was delicious! I only knocked a star of for service as we did have to wait twenty minutes for our table to be ready, but luckily there was room in the small bar area for us to wait. Once at the table service was faultless.

Only criticism I have is the discretionary 12.5% service this was added automatically and I always leave a tip but when I asked about this the staff were quiet rude with us. I wasn't saying I wasn't happy to pay a tip but it is optional and it was the attitude I received when I asked about it. We have been Iberica many times love the place, atmosphere and food but was disappointed with the response I got from staff hence lower rating

The food tasted good but the paella, albeit tasty, was the biggest disappointment. Looked great when it came out, but considering it’s a huge dish that it comes out in the portion size was actually quite small. £28 for two people was overpriced when it really only fed one person.

We dined here for my mums birthday. The setting was fantastic, the drinks and food available were incredible and there was a wonderful atmosphere in the restaurant. Typical Spanish tapas was available and due to the layout of the restaurant, you even felt like you were sat in Spain! This is one of my many visits here and every time they improve and surprise me! Would recommend to anyone!

We are very lucky to have such a beautiful restaurant, and the layout on our ground floor definitely creates the spanish vibe! We hope that on your next visit we can continue exceeding your expectations! We look forward to welcoming you very soon! Kind Regards, Holly Richardson

Excellent food and very attentive service. Food came too quickly, even after asking to slow down, please. Price was on the high side - mainly due to wine price. But overall, well worth a visit.

Hi ScottB, Thank you for your praise about our food and service! Sorry to hear that the arrived to fast for your liking, even after requesting it was slowed down. Perhaps next time just mention it to the waiter in the beginning that you'd like to order a couple of dishes at the time to prolong the enjoyment? We hope to see you again very soon!

Dinner was lovely and the service in the restaurant was great as usual. I think the “bouncer” on the door needs to help with his people skills - I understand that saturday’s in spinningfields attract a certain type of person but he refused to open the door and let me in because he assumed I was on my own and coming to misbehave at the bar. Perhaps being a little more friendly and asking if I had a reservation would have been a better approach?

Very nice food, not the best we have had but nice.

Found the bill expensive for what we actually had.

Communication seemed an issue, out waiter was very good but the other employees seemed to lack in communication and team work, was shame.

Food was excellent, the surrounfings are really nice and it's really good service until. I received the bill. It wasn't pointed out to me that a discretionary service charge of 12.5% had been added. I did not notice this and added a further £10 tip on top. At no point did the waiter make me aware that the charge had been applied. Really poor and tainted my opinion of an otherwise excellent meal.

The callos tapa was horrible. It was served with fries, the meet was chopped too thin and it had a very intense anise seed flavour that didn’t fit. Definitely, the worst callos that I had in my life
