I loved it! The small plates were all quite good and the service was wonderful. They had quite a selection of good wines as well.

Stopped in for a quick bite. Restaurant was very busy and we were sat at a table in the bar. Ordered several tapas and all were delicious. The service was sub par but would recommend because the food is fast and tasty.

Had heard about this place from a colleague and the reviews were pretty good. No wait for a table for 2 at around 5 pm on a Sunday. Had the lamb chop special that was spectacular. The garlic prawns were plentiful and just garlicky enough! Calamari was also very good. Waiter was attentive but the food was slow in coming... More

My friend and I decided to try out Cafe Iberico. The customer service was excellent. The food was subpar for the price. I would not recommend the seafood paella. Although it was freshly made. The rice was burnt and hard. The seasonings was not traditonal. The seafood was overcooked. My friend ordered the potatoes and that was very good. Unfortunately,... More

We had a large group of friends. We ordered lots of different dishes and had fun sharing. Each plate was good. They came out at different times, but spaced perfectly for sharing. We had fun and will return. It's very casual. They do offer some fun cuisine.

We had about 10 different Tapas and all were excellent. Special recognition for the sauce on the mussels - best I've ever had. Smoked salmon, seafood salad, mushrooms, and of course manchego con jamón ibérico were excellent as well. Seafood paella was good though I'd stick with all tapas next time and be perfectly happy.

Waited an hour over our reservation time. Enough said. Food okay, loud, got wet plate with crumbs. Skip it.

Loved every single plate we ordered Lots of flavor and spices. Patata brava, garlic shrimp, garlic mushroom, and calamari. Of course you have to try the sangria and the flan.

We went on a Saturday night for small plates, and they have a wide selection and very reasonable prices. Three plates was plenty for this couple. Enjoyed the empanadas, scallops with rice, and ham croquettes. Liked the inexpensive white wine the waiter recommended, too. But the place was lit up as bright as a pancake house and very noisy. Atmosphere... More
