My friends and I ate here last night and overall I have to say I was satisfied. The restaurant was not very crowded which likely contributed to the overall good experience. We had the spinach salad, the artichokes and the sea bream. We agreed the salad was just lovely; a tasty dressing with sea salt to balance it out. The almonds enhance the flavour. The artichokes were similarly tasty with red pepper and garlic flakes. The sea bream was disappointing however. Except for the fennel underneath it which was incredible. The wine was also a good value (I got the dryest white).


This is the 3rd time i've been to Sabor Iberico so felt it was due a review. It also means i can mean what i say when i tell you that it consistency has delicious authentic Spanish tapas.On this occasion we has the chorizo, pattas bravas, anchovies, croquetta (of the day), a selection of Iberio ham and cheeses, and the "pink" meatballs. All of it was "wiped out" in little under 45 mins!.. The atmosphere can be somewhat hit and miss but that's down the clientele. Sometimes as East London Girl mentions below, it can be "jumping" and on evenings like tonight, there was only 1 other table in and it was cosy and quiet. No complaints at all. Apparently the toilets are a but lush too, but i haven't been yet :D

Brilliant traditional Spanish restaurant with tasty tapas and flamenco shows based in Barbican on Whitecross Street.


We opted for seven tapas between two of us, which was more than enough. Pictured below is the (1) chorizo with cider sauce (2) marinated pork skewers (3) sweet potato fries (4) potato tortilla (5) paella croquetas (6) patatas bravas and (7) tetilla cheese with caramelised onion and toasted bread.


All very reasonably priced between around £5-8. We particularly enjoyed the chorizo and the paella croquetas. 


They also have drink specials (priced at £4.95) and a G&T menu if you like your gins. 

Don’t miss the flamenco shows held downstairs - free entry.
