My husband and I went there upon the recommendation of locals as well as looking up reviews. We ordered the chicken croquettes, sliced octopus on potato, mixed salad, a variety of sausages and their house paella. The croquettes were not memorable, the octopus was overcooked and under seasoned, the salad dressing was Mayonnaise-heavy, sausages were incredibly salty and their paella... More

You must always get the sangria when eating here. Their carne asada is amazing! Always good for lunch and dinner. Also good place to have a dinner with family and friends.

The place was buzzing so we knew it was the right place from when we arrived. Fantastic service. We ordered several dishes to share. The food came out one after another like a conveyor belt. We couldn't keep up! It was all tasty and filling. Would highly recommend for large groups. Great experience.

I've been coming here for over 20 years. The food and service have consistently been excellent. The wait times can be excessive late on a weekend.

Was in the mood for some type of Hispanic food and just randomly came across this place on Google. The staff were all very friendly and our waiter in particular. All of our food was great, and the paella was plenty big for two people for a mere $14. With a handful of tapas, two paellas, and a pitcher of... More

Food is always super fresh, quick service, great atmosphere, the best white sangria wine in the whole world. We are used to this place so much that there is no need to look at the menu...its always the same meals. LOVE it!!!

Good food, family friendly, staff very helpful in helping us select a variety of dishes, as we had never been here before. A little on the expensive side.

Every time we are in Chicago we stop at Café Iberico for dinner. Every tapa we ordered was better than the next. The sangria tinto is always spot on. Always love to finish off my dinner with the banana with the caramel sauce and the vanilla ice cream. They make their own caramel sauce there and it's to die for.... More

This place has a real buzz,We went on a Sunday night and it was still busy with a wait . You have to shout to have a conversation so if you want a quiet evening don't go . It's worth it though. Tapas done really well ,Not all brought out at the same time and really tasty . Really enjoyed... More
