Been here few times already, last time was with some friends of mine, we were looking for a place to drop by, grab a bite and hang out a little bit more so I brought my friends here, telling them that they will surely remember this night.
In overall what can I say for the place:
Food was as good as always, services as well. Prices are reasonable and decoration is good.
We went there recently for a work-related dinner with a very diverse group of people. The great thing about tapas is that there is something in it for everyone. I like it because it's a very social way of eating and sharing food, and that also worked out at our dinner.
The food at Iberica was delicious and the service excellent. Since we were a larger group, we had made a reservation in advance and settled on one of the menus. That was a good choice, and we were not disappointed by the never-ending stream of dishes that arrrived at our table. My personal favourites were the potato omelette ("Spanish Omelette with onions") and the tuna-pepper cakes ("Roasted Piquillos with bonito tuna and caramelized onions"), but others obviously had a different taste. I was not so much convinced by the desserts (almond sponge with chocolate mousse and berries, caramelized spanish rice pudding), but again, that will be very much up to your own taste and expectations.
Given the central location, it is definitely a bit more on the pricey side. However, we had a great evening and would certainly come again.
More than just a restaurant. This is a tapas bar, Spanish deli, art gallery and cultural centre disguised as a quality Spanish restaurant. Great quality food in beautiful surroundings were everything is imported from Spain right down to chairs you are sitting on.
This restaurant serves relatively healthy dishes and they are generously portioned =] I quite enjoyed the atmosphere here, with a decent toilet, and I would definitely the following dishes if you are to visit here=]
Marinated yellow tail tuna loin with grain mustard, Granny Smith apples and Asturian fresh cider
Seared monkfish with parmantiere potatoes, mange tout and fresh clams with lemon zest
Crème Caramel with Moscavado sugar, Granny Smith apple consommè, black olives and rocket
We went their on a Friday evening and although everything was booked (except for the fine dining area upstairs) we got a spot at the bar. Although fully packed the place isn't packed and the noise level is such that you can easily have a conversation without getting hoarse.
The food, i.e. tapas were delicious, fresh and not the typical too much oil/ garlic mash of bad tapas places - even the Chorizo didn't put you in a fat induced coma. Best thing we ordered was the traditional tortilla (omlette) just perfect, made to order.
My personal highlight although was that didn't feel rushed. Not being from London I am still not used to the: do you want a dessert, no? here is the bill, please go - attitude.
A good Spanish tapas these days is hard to find... in London town at any rate.
I was beaming after I left Iberica, not entirely due to the red wine glow I had obtained by the way.
They have a great selection of tapas, and I can say the whitebait was really good, not dry and crunched out like most other places, and of a decent size.
The cured ham was pretty good too (I don't even pretend to know about what would constitute good ham) but the croquettes were a bit too impressive- mouth wateringly memorable.
Add to that an attentive server who took it upon himself to give us a complimentary glass of alcoholic nutty something and really it was a great night out.
nom nom nom croquettas.
Tasty food, jaunty staff, and if you sit upstairs you get plenty of space which I’ve found is not the case at other tapas joints.
I thought it was better than Brindisa, although maybe less of an event than eating at Barrafina without the queue.
Really wide range of dishes so I definitely need to go back and work my way through the menu.
We spent £72 between 2, of which about £20 was on drinks, and there was plenty to eat.
OK, if you saw me last night at Iberica you would never think that I used to be a vegetarian. I think I have half a pig residing in my intestines at the moment. At the moment that is a happy relationship - perhaps I will update later.
I use Barrafina as the benchmark for any Spanish tapas joint in London. I think I have just found Barrafina’s very good looking twin sister.
The portions of Jabugo ham were very healthy, or perhaps not that healthy for my waistline.
The rioja that I used to wash down the dried porcine was very accessible and reasonably priced - it didn’t have that dangerous edge that other cheaper Riojas can have.
Croquettas were so good they would make any Spanish grandmother cry.
Fried white bait - yum!
So, I am going to alternate between here and Barrafina - I like both so much.
Viva my intestines!
