Went here for lunch with family the food was outstanding especially the inside out chicken wings! Enjoyed the whole experience even though a little expensive for a lunchtime that is until the bill came with a 10% service charge added!!!! I always tip as I choose to reward good service but strongly believe this should not just be expected and added to a bill!!! What a shame to spoil a wonderful experience! Sort it out Iberico or at least make it clearly optional!!!!!!

Hi there,

Thanks for your review. So glad you enjoyed your experience at Iberico, and sorry that it was marred by the addition of a service charge. I would however like to point out that it is clearly stated that a discretionary service charge is applied at the bottom of EVERY page of our 20 page menu. It is also shown in bold at the top of the bill. All of which hopefully proves there is certainly no intention to keep it "hidden!". We also like to think that £11.95 for the lunch menu is exceptional value (considering the quality of ingredients used and the care and attention that goes into producing the dishes). We are usually inundated with comments on how reasonably priced it is! Nevertheless we really hope to see you at Iberico in the future, and please ask if you would like us to deduct the "discretionary" service charge.

Have visited a few times, both for lunch and evening meals and have not been disappointed.
Unique setting in a vault, comfortable relaxed surroundings, staff friendly, menu changes often so never get bored and the food is innovative and scrummy!

The food here really is on another level as Tapas go. Nice tranquil atmosphere. Just a nice place to eat a fine meal. Been a while, I must re visit.

This is a gem hidden underground that I would certainly recommend. It was our second visit. We went for lunch on a Saturday and ordered two glasses of wine, catalan bread, squid, a scallop, inside out chicken wings (delicious) and mushrooms. It cost £44 and we were full. The secret is not to order more than two tapas each or you will leave it. The quality of food was excellent and I can imagine an evening here would be very enjoyable indeed.

Forgetting it was Chinese new year we couldn't get into were we had intended to eat so by chance we ended up seated at the bar at Iberico. The food and service were of the highest quality and served with a smile. We sampled the crispy pork belly, the miso salmon, squid, padron peppers and catalan bread all were superb, but the rice cakes we also had were something else.

Can't wait to return !
