Our flagship restaurant and the first one in our family, Ibérica in Marylebone is located 2 minutes’ walk from Great Portland Tube Station.
With floor to ceiling windows, it’s flooded with natural light during the day; a very special vibe takes over in the evening.

Our popular bar gets full with locals seeking drinks and tapas eating Spanish style by the bar. if you have lots of friends (or colleagues), we have an amazing private room upstairs to enjoy the fun of sharing food!

I have been to this place twice before and both times were really good. Having returned after 3 yrs the decor, food and service has severely deteriorated. It was just 2 of us and we were sat from 8pm and we ordered 4 tapas dishes it took them over an hour to bring out each dish by 11pm when they brought out the final dish had to ask them to send it back to the kitchen as the waits were too long not once did anyone come to apologise for poor service .

Iberica is a wonderful place with lovely food, however the service is a total let down. Extremely slow and no attention towards their guests. Service is a must, it does not matter how wonderful is the food if the service is not up to standards.

Welcoming attentive staff- our table wasn't quite ready as we had arrived early, so we sat in the lively bar area and enjoyed a couple of wines from the 'by the glass' selection, guided by the bar staff.
When we were shown to our table, we ordered a range of tapas dishes which came at regular, but not rushed, intervals, with two very good and reasonably priced bottles of Rioja, again advised by the staff. The 'classic' tapas were really good and reasonable value. Our only slight disappointment was with some of the specials, which were overpriced.
Overall, we had a great time and will definitely return .

Due to a business occasion, I requested a quiet table 1 week ago and also talked with them one day before the dinner to confirm that my request will be met.

Unfortunately, they placed us next to a 20 people party table and the noise level was unpleasant.

I requested a quick meal as we had a limited time between a train arrival & the reception we were attending. The staff couldn’t have been more helpful in ensuring we chose dishes that didn’t take too long to cook. What could have been stressful was relaxing & pleasant - thank you!

Food was great quality but they forgot to bring us one of the dishes we’d ordered and then still tried to charge us for it. Shame. Would still come back though.

We were in the restaurant for about 15 minutes when we were asked to leave as there was a fire in the kitchen. We could smell no smoke, see no smoke, and the fire brigade which came promptly was very chilled out and relaxed. As a result we stayed across the road expecting we could come back in soon. I guess our mistake, but after about 20 minutes of our standing there, we finally poked our heads inside the restaurant and were asked to leave. The manager certainly had to tend to the fire as the top priority but there were about 15 other staff just standing smoking on the street - would have been nice if one of them had been instructed to communicate to us and the other guests just standing around.

The food is amazing at Iberica, unfortunately on the night we went we were put in a very busy section of the upstairs and the serving staff spent the majority of the time waiting on a large table in the centre of the room. We wouldn’t have minded so much but there were lots of quieter areas they could have placed us in.

I would definitely go again but be clearer on where I’d like to be seated. Last time I went it was a 5 star meal.

We’ve been there several times, food is delicious and location is good.

Service is a roulette. If you get a good waiter it will be a great experience, otherwise you will beg for the their patience.

AMAZING service! Great food and great wine, I really recommend the paella to share between 2, then while you’re waiting for that (it’s prepared and cooked fresh) order some tapas or bread and olives

The staff were welcoming from the moment we arrived. They explained the specials for the month and we had both the wine and one of the dishes - both were excellent. All other dishes we chose including their 3 meat selection, calamari, patatas bravas, and chorizo lollipops were delicious and the prawns were amazing. The special dish with truffle shavings was brought to the table by the chef and that was exceptional! All the staff were attentive without being annoying. Thoroughly enjoyable and will definitely return.

Lovely food, delicious wine and great restaurant. Experience spoilt by addition of 2 drinks onto the bill which we didnt have. The waiter appeared to know they had been added, and that we hadnt had them, and he looked very guilty as though it was deliberate. A real shame as its a nice place.

The only reason I haven't given 5 stars to the food is because, as I am allergic to capsicums and many dishes include capsicums, I end up eating more fried food than I should. Having said that, the staff are always very careful and helpful with my allergy and the food is really delicious: if it wasn't, I wouldn't end up eating too much! The wines are good, too, an interesting selection. I always enjoy meals at Iberica, whether with family and babies or for a grown-up dinner with a friend or friends.
