Ibérica is located right below the Zig Zag building, just 5 minutes walking from Victoria tube station.

Our bar downstairs or the terrace outside are the perfect space for a quick lunch or after work drinks and tapas.

We have a specific menu at the bar with Spanish pinchos (tiny tapas) to nibble while you drink. And bocadillos (Spanish for sandwich) to take away or eating in.

Our best kept secret of Ibérica in Victoria? A small private room in the main dining room upstairs that fits up 6 people!

Second visit for me. Pleased to see it very busy on a weds. The tapas selection is stunning and so many great wines too. Service on point to boot.

Thought it was very expensive for what it was. Our bill for 2 with only 1 glass of wine for £97! Considering it was lunchtime I feel it was 50% too much for what we got.
Quality of the food was ok but had better elsewhere

The food was truly delicious which I did not expect as this is a chain restaurant. The ambience was lively but not over powering. Our waiter was lovely but very busy which meant that it was a bit difficult to get our drinks in a timely manner. But overall very impressive.

Genebra (I hope I spelled her name correctly) was amazing! We had a delayed train from Paris, so we arrived at our reservations about 15 minutes late. She took our bags and held them and instructed the staff to serve us quickly as we had Hamilton tickets within the hour. Food was amazing, service was outstanding, and Genebra MADE our night after such a long ordeal with our train debaucle. Service is #1 here. I would recommend to ANYONE!

Victoria has become a bit weird and the Zig Zag building etc. Not hugely atmospheric but the bar and restaurant was really well done, food fantastic and had a great time. Just as good as the other Ibericas and well worth a visit

We had an interesting range of tapas, I particularly liked the aubergine and the monkfish, the prawns were a little cold and gritty hence a 4* rather than 5* review.
Service was very good, staff are friendly and polite.

The food at Iberica is good, but it’s let down by the service, or lack of. The staff are friendly, but extremely unattentive. Once we were seated, we waited over 25 minutes for a menu. I had to get up on 3 separate occasions to ask a member of staff for menus/drinks/to order food. The food was very slow to come out. They forgot 2 of our dishes and bought a dish we hadn’t even ordered, which we were told we could keep free of charge but I later realised we had been charged for it anyway. A total shambles. I would say that maybe they were just having an off night, but this is the third time I have eaten at this Iberica, and the other times the service wasn’t much better. Shame, but I won’t be going back.

Excellent food, but naughty behaviour on the bill spoilt it. The table next to us was charged for a bottle of wine they didn’t have and we were also subject to a sneaky overcharging - an old trick to make up revenue lost elsewhere - add an item and hope after a few drinks the punter doesn’t notice...

The food and service were absolutely great!! My only comment would be that about 30 minutes in to the visit the music was turned up which meant that you had to talk quite loudly to be heard and couldn’t always hear what the other person was saying - not quite sure why it was turned up when the volume was fine when we arrived.

Over priced, average food.
Iberica has never been cheap, but our meal was poor. Farringdon Iberica serves better food (not sure how when it is the same company).

This restaurant group is one of my favourites. The staff at all sites are well trained, friendly and efficient without being intrusive. The food is uniformly excellent, and the wine list, especially the Albariños, is great.
On Monday night a large group of 60 were seated shortly before my brother and I. I presumed our service would be a little slow given the large group.......there was absolutely no difference; clearly extra staff had been brought in.
Highly recommend.

The food at Iberica was outstanding. We went for a lunch meeting so it was quite quiet although we did have to ask them to turn the music down - (which they did straight away) - service was impeccable and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend

Food was gorgeous as was the decorated service. Would have been higher except the whole floors tables and chairs were totally moved around while we were sat eating. They were doing it quietly but still extremely distracting and certainly affected the ambience

This was my first time here, having tried other Spanish restaurants in the city. I’m from Spain, so I know when a tapas restaurant is good.
The food here is really good. We ordered a mix of different cheeses and jamón and lomo. We also had sobrasada which was really nice.
Then we shared octopus and secreto ibérico (this is the best one I’ve tried in London so far).
As a dessert we shared churros, which were also better than in other places.
This is a place I woohoo go back to.

Have been to Iberica in Victoria a few times but this time it wasn't quite as good as it had been previously. The service was a bit hit and miss and we had to flag down a waiter to get our drinks order taken. We ordered a few tapas to start, followed by Paella to share between 3 of us. Tapas starter were lovely, as was the Paella. But the portion size of the Paella was very small - it came in a large black paella pan, but it was about one grain of rice deep and you could see the bottom of the pan through the rice, which made us all raise an eyebrow. Very tasty (although a little salty for my tastes) with lovely big prawns on top, but a bit mean on the portion size. Rice isn't exactly a pricey ingredient.

What was up with all the little flies? We spent half our time trying to chase away the flies and keep them from falling into our food or wine. If you were going for the authentic Spanish village feeling with all the flies, you have badly misunderstood what authentic means!

Furthermore, we reserved our table almost a month ago for a date night with my wife, but they’ve gone and sat us at the isolated corner table, which seemed to be the only table with non-cushioned chairs and probably the worst table in the whole upstairs area! Unbelievable. Of course we complained, and then they showed 3 other available tables which were much better and we picked one of them. Though there were still even better tables on the window side and they didn’t offer those to us. If you treat your customers who booked early like this, what does that say about you?

The good and the wine were good, but overshadowed by the flies and the thoughtlessness.

On a Saturday evening, the food and atmosphere here were excellent, but drinks service was slow. We ordered a paella for four people very early in our evening, conscious it takes a while to cook, but it didn't come for over an hour (and we suspected the order might have been missed until we enquired). It was absolutely delicious when it came, and served with great aplomb - but it might be worth nudging the staff at various points, if things seem to be taking a while.

Service was fantastic - the waiters were very alert to any issues or anything you needed but not too much to bother you whilst you were eating. The wine was great and the food was fantastic - the paella was well worth the short wait. The tapas was also great - the chorizo was amazing.

Overall, we were very impressed with the evening and had an fantastic time celebrating my Mother’s birthday.
