Wasn’t greeted when I arrived and was made to feel like I was a nuisance as I broke up a conversation between the staff to get to my table.

But our server was great and the food was amazing.

Lovely restaurant but the food and service wasn’t as good as I was expecting. The wait staff seemed more concerned about a big group of people sat near us and seemed to be waiting hand and food on them yet taking half an hour to bring us some water for the table. When the food came if was flavourless and bland. Sad to say but it wasn’t worth what it cost at all

Food great. But was disappointed that the Open Table special offer (3 courses, plus a glass of Cava, plus dessert) was not extended to pescatarians/vegetarians. This meant that two members in our group of four could not eat from this menu as no substitutes were offered or made available. We were told our only option was to eat A La Carte. What made the extra disappointing was I had specified we had two pescatarians in the party and that would would all be parting in the Open Table offer both at the time of booking and upon our arrival. It was only at the table we were told that menu wasn’t going to be suitable to two members of our group.

On the hottest day of the year we were glad of the air conditioning in the restaurant.We opted for a Jug of Sangria which although a little pricey £25 a jug was welcomed in the heat.I dined with my husband and we opted for 3 tapas each with help from the waiter and waitress.Service was excellent and the staff great.For early evening it was busy,think many people had finished work early.
After the tapas which chose a desert .My tarts de Santiago was amazing likewise so was my husbands cheesecake.
We have dined here once before and will certainly return.

We booked a table for tapas for my daughters graduation and we were not disappointed.
I thought the staff were absolutely lovely, offering different tables, whether I wanted to try the wine before purchase or the ham. They were great.
It has a relaxed atmosphere and the food was delicious. Would highly recommend .

The meal at the Iberica lived up to the very high standards we received at the Marylebone restaurant. the service and food was excellent and we had the opportunity to chat and discuss the best drinks to have with the hams and cheeses with the manager (sherry and iberico ham is a winner). Well worth a visit but do it properly and take your time and enjoy it

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!

We all loved the aubergine dish and the tortilla was one of the best we have tasted in Manchester. We sat in a booth, which was very comfortable and the service was exceptional

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
