Service was poor and very slow. I had to ask to see a food menu after we were first seated. Food and menu is not a good value for money.

Despite a rocky start with confusion with my booking the staff were really helpful. I could not fault anything about this place, the food was amazing and my waitress Sara was so lovely helping us choose our food and was on hand whenever we needed her.

We found the food uninspired and very mediocre. Even without looking at the bill we commented that the tapas we ordered seemed bland and not as good as any other tapas restaurants we have been to in the U.K. or Spain. When we saw the bill it really hit home how it was overpriced for the quality of food. It felt very much like a chain restaurant with ore-prepared food that had just been reheated, and not like somewhere we would spend £90 for two. The service was ok; they were cheerful and smiling and explained everything well, but it took a long time to get the bill and pay.

Whilst the food was good, it wasn't worth £111 for 2 people.
We were asked if we wanted water but were not given the option of tap, instead paid £3 for a bottle we barely touched.
Fresh bread and olive oil was literally 2 slices, halved.

We had a lovely evening here for Valentines Day! Sara was our waitress for the evening and she was very pleasant and friendly toward us! She is clearly well educated in her knowledge of Spanish cuisine and helped us to select the best tapas options (all was amazing).. we will definitely be back again soon! :-)

First time here but will visit again. When we arrived bar service was slow, however once served the drinks were great. Lovely atmosphere and although we were booked in at 6.15 we got there to have a couple of drinks before dining. The menu is limited but very tasty.... especially the churros.... delicious.... food service was excellent.

Overall a good experience . We had a meal with friends over from Switzerland. Excellent atmosphere low noise levels so conversations were good. Good was excellent bar the paella . We sat down at 6pm and the seafood paella had already run out so we opted for the chicken . It was very salty . The rest of the food was excellent. Service was brilliant except they got our dessert order wrong which resulted in one of our party waiting for their dessert to arrive. The waiter apologised and apart from that one mistake he was pleasant,efficient and attentive.

Yes definitely due to the wonderful twice cooked lamb and potato salad and the 50% discount in January whereby I could afford something I would normally struggle to.

Food was really good, but with a 10 minute gap between each dish (which was only about 2 mouthfuls each time) it was hard to feel satisfied. Wouldn't go again purely for this reason.

Responded on 26 January 2020

Hi JackW, We are glad to hear you enjoyed all your food! Sorry to hear there was substantial waits in between each of the dishes. All the tapas does come as and when it is ready but our apologies your dishes didn't arrive a little faster for you on your visit. Whilst we cannot plan for the to arrive all together, the waiters would be happy to advise you on dishes that have similar preparation times or work well together. We do hope that you do give us another try! Kindest Regards,

Hi LB11, Thanks for the 4 star review! Glad to hear you had a nice dinner with us, and we are sorry to hear you think that the food is a little expensive! Our prices are a reflection of the premium products we use, many imported directly from Spain combined with the skill and technique that goes into creating the menu, and every dish that arrives to the guests table. We hope that you'll visit us again throughout January, or for a special occasion at another point! Kind Regards,

Lovely restaurant, amazing food and lovely staff. The only reason I haven't given 5 stars is due to the mandatory tip! Whilst I would have given a tip on this visit I am a little un happy about being forced into a mandatory value.

Iberica Manchester
Responded on 23 January 2020

Hi KatherineS, Thanks for the 4 star review! Sorry to hear we lost a star for our service charge. We do automatically add service charge to our diners bills, however this is absolutely discretionary and the choice of the guest if they'd like to pay it. Our aim is that guests are so pleased with the service that paying it is a pleasure, but understand that sometimes this isn't the case, and are happy to remove it without any fuss. We hope to see you again soon! :)

The food was excellent with some things we had not tried before and some more unusual ingredients. The service was great until we had had most of our initial order, then all of the staff bar one seemed to vanish for 30 to 40 minutes leaving us with a long wait for dessert.

Overpriced, even with a 50% discount promotion. The food was tepid when reaching the table and of poor quality compared to my experience of Spanish Tapas in the UK. Cutlery had food stuck to it. Won't be going back.

My wife and i had lunch on new years eve 2 of our dishes the twice cooked lamb and the pitu chicken were well below the standard expected i would suggest the top chiefs were not in they were chiefs learning at lunch time the twice cooked lamb was hard on the top so it was over cooked the pitu chicken was bone dry and not edible that is why i have said the top chiefs were not in they would not send that food out, then we get the bill we ordered wine which was £19 (red) on the bill £38 i was told that is what i ordered after some heated words the waiter apologised this is a top city restaurant i have sent an email to the restaurant asking for an explanation into the poor standard of food and service you are paying top money for food and service and you expect that they also put a service charge on the bill so no concern for the customer (i didn't pay) what i can't understand is why do that we have eaten there on a number of occasions and always in the evening and the food was good the service good i have never complained before had no need to they are willing to take your money for such poor standards they really need to look into why it was so bad to say we were disappointed spoilt our day i will be interested to see if i get any feedback off them. (well nearly a week now this part is my edited version and no response have sent 5 messages on there website all i want is a answer to my question why was the food and service well below there standard you just can't take peoples money and give them poor food and service which is not normal for the restaurant so why no REPLY
