The service was awful. After asking for water we got empty glasses and had to wait another 10 minutes for a bottle of water to come, and it was brought to us after several reminders. When it came to order it came out that they do not have the wine, aubergines, dessert, they do not serve coffee on the terrace... Although we ordered same dishes, the waitress brought one dish and the rest came in 10 minutes. No one bothered to feel glasses and I had to get off table to reach the bottle and serve my guests.
Will not recommend the restaurant to anyone as service became horrible comparing to the pre-pandemic time when I visited them almost every month for lunch.

I chose Iberica La Terraza to visit with a friend as it was outdoors, so COVID safer and the weather was good. Plus we both love tapas. This visit was slightly disappointing. The food was nice, but did not taste very authentic. There is a reduced menu outside, rather than the main restaurant so the choices are limited. We ordered two cocktails which were very small. My friend's drink was full to the brim with ice and once removed there was less than half a glass of her cocktail which was already served in a short glass. The food came quite quickly and the service was good/not outstanding. We ordered 6 tapas dishes to share, plus a cheese platter and were both still hungry afterwards. The cheeses on the platter were all delicious, but served without any bread or crackers so we had to pay an additional amount to get 2 slices of bread cut into 4 pieces. Our total bill was £99 which is very pricy considering we finished everything we ate and were still hungry afterwards. The area itself is really pretty but the fact that it's outside, people can smoke which is off-putting if you are not a smoker and you are eating your food. Although it is located outside, it's enclosed by trees so when someone smokes nearby it does waft through the area. All in all we had a good night, albeit expensive.

Love this spot. It’s such a perfect oasis in the city and the food is amazing! Alas the service was very slow. We were constantly having to ask two or three times for our drinks, or how long food was going to be. Maybe just a bit of pandemic rustiness, still a great evening though.

The vibe was really lovely. The flavour of the food was good but the cookery on it was off. We ordered the squid and octopus, and these were particularly chewy and cold. I’m not one to normally write out reviews but I was pretty surprised about how chewy these dishes were.

I would recommend this place for drinks, less so for food

Food is overpriced for what you get, service was extremely slow, waiting nearly 15 mins for someone to even take a drinks order, then another 20 min wait for a bread basket.

Dear Suzanne, Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience with us. The description of your reservation is definitely the opposite of what we want our guests to experience; we are very sorry if you had a very unpleasant time with us. Thank you for raising the awareness; we will surely consider it on future occasions. We hope to have the chance to welcome you on further occasions. Ana María Mosquera Customer Relations Team

Lovely, open terrace! Food was glorious. Service was a bit slow, particularly on drinks which sit for a good 10/15 mins once made by the bar. Server seemed more interested in preparing napkins and cutlery rather than the actual service element. Great afternoon spot!

Arrived an hour early and wanted to have a drink before the 13:30 booking, no problem, had a nice Gin lemon cocktail. Had a really lazy meal which came well cooked and spot on. Nice drop of Rose Wine and a white to finish off with desert. Never rushed nor pressured to give up the table and thanks to all the staff who made it a really enjoyable experience.

Booked for BH Sunday lunch knowing the weather was due to be good, hoping to emanate a sunny Spanish afternoon. Seating was very shaded so quite chilly.
Service was great, although it was hard to communicate as the music was SO loud - more like being in a club than a restaurant. They did turn it down on request but it kept creeping back up again - hardly a chilled Sunday vibe.
Finally the food: limited choice, tiny portions and incredibly expensive (still reeling from the £6 for HALF a baked potato!).
Oh, and let’s not forget fellow (non-dining) guests chuffing away on roll-ups behind us.
In hindsight might’ve had a more enjoyable, less extortionate time down the pub.

Lovely visit to Iberica La Terazza, it was my first time coming here and I really enjoyed myself. We were not left waiting on arrival, staff moved us to a better table once available which was within 5 minutes. There was a little delay between ordering food/drinks to them arriving, but it was okay as it was very busy. The food was delicious. Throughout my visit staff were very friendly, efficient making sure we were not left without anything. I will be back again. Thank you.

Wonderful setting. The rain-proof canopy with ceiling heaters set amongst leafy trees really does create a Mediterranean ambience. Truly authentic and delicious Spanish cuisine - we spend four weeks a year in Spain so we appreciate authentic Spanish dishes. Service was great - native Spaniard waiter who knew what he was doing. The only thing is the prices which are quite a bit steeper than they used to be - something that we will have to adjust to in a post-Brexit, COVID world, I suppose. Lastly, the Canary Wharf car park is directly underneath and accessible by lift - so it is also a easy-access place for the handicapped/elderly etc.

Bad service (with a couple of exceptions the waitresses and waiters were not particularly polite and rather abrupt), food is not good value (expensive for what it is). I went on a Friday evening and several heaters were not working, making it a bad choice for colder days. Do not recommend - experience was not pleasant

Good food, and well set up on the terrace.

Ideally you need to sort the lack of Wifi especially when the menus are all QR codes and you had no paper menu as a back up.

Would like to see more tapas like the internal restaurant as the menu is surprisingly limited.
