Ibérica Canary Wharf

A glamorous branch of the successful tapas group with a menu that combines tradition with modernity.

This glamorous branch of Ibérica has a spacious, airy feel that blends well with the glass towers and moneyed streets of Canary Wharf, yet it conveys a real sense of Spain. The space feels contemporary but rooted – as does the menu from executive chef Nacho Manzano , which blends traditional dishes with ‘nuevo’ flourishes.

Also in Cabot Square is Iberica's Terraza, where you can enjoy tapas, wines and sherries in an attractive al fresco setting.

It's good, actually very good. Probably one of the best tapas I've ever had. That said I've only been to Spain once. I was in London for business and was glad to go solo dining here. I had the following: Octopus Gallega (Good) - very fresh octopus, though I think smoking it takes away some of it's purist qualities. Grilled white asparagus and artichokes with aioli (Fantastic) - freshness, subtleness, and oomph of aioli makes perfect balance Chorizo lollypops (Good) - great chorizo, and folks that liked the food battered and fried will not be disappointed Black with Cuttlefish, Prawns, and aioli (Good) - though I feel it could have used some lemon or some other acid for better balance. Overall great tapas.


This is the best spanish restaurant in canary wharf. Have been here couple of times and was never disappointed.

There is a nice bar area for drinks downstairs and main dining area is situated upstairs. The decor and ambience is cosy and service is excellent.

We had a few plates to share among two of us and my favourite was the octopus and croquettes. Definitely going Back again!


I’ve finally found my favourite Spanish restaurant in London.

Love the decoration, the staff and the atmosphere.

The food is delicious and the wine choices exquisite.

Will definitely go back very soon.


My friend and I had dinner here last week and I was very pleased. A waitress came to our table promptly after seating. I had the asparagus and cheese on toast, the cod brandada and the special, the aubergine with honey and pine nuts. The first was my favourite as it was sprinkled with sea salt which only enhanced the rich cheese flavour. Good tapa size as well. The cod was a bit oddly presented IMO with three small swirls like hummus and a similar texture. Still, the cod flavour shone through. The half aubergine was ample and heartily studded with pine nuts which I appreciated as I LOVE them. I thought the taste was a bit fishy but I think my taste buds were off as the waitress confirmed there was no fish sauce used. I still ate it all!

I think the tapas are fairly priced for London from about £4-6 each.

We only had a problem getting a server at the very end to pay the check but otherwise was impressed how good service was. A rarity in London!


This is probably one of the top places to dine in Canary Wharf, which has a competitive range of restaurants to cater to the business folk. The staff are extremely pleasant and well trained, and they are really attentive. I attended a private event here and even though it was completely full and we were sat on the upstairs corner, we did not feel neglected at all. The food is so good, especially if you are lucky enough to have executive chef Nacho Manzano in the house. I will definitely be returning and would highly recommend this for any occasion!


Don't get sidetracked by the main courses, as tapas is the best way to go here. Love the mini burgers and the aspargus toast, and the ham croquettes are also a safe bet. If your hunger takes you the mains, the pork chops are generous and tasty. Good selection of wines at moderate prices. Service, though, could really use an upgrade.  

Rude, Ignorant, Poor food, even Worse Service. Staff could not handle a slow Tuesday, we waited an age for our first drink, our food was actually ready before we got our drinks. The cocktail barman had never heard of a Rossini or a Bellini. The food is unseasoned and the waitress scoffed when we asked for salt. The octopus I swear had the texture of vulcanized rubber.The staff with the exception of the host were very unpleasant, our waitress had a face you wouldn't be fed up of slapping. The only smile we got was when we were handed the bill. We attempted to contact the restaurant to give feedback but they don't reply to emails/messages. So if you fancy manky food for over the price while being insulted then this is for you. Up their own holes.
