Tapas on Portland Place
Finding a table for 2 on a weekend night at Iberica is normally a rare event having tried numerous times before. However being a January night and still a reasonably recent post-festivities weekend perhaps meant that all Londoners were not yet out to play in full, providing us with this opportunity to book just 5 minutes ahead.
We were seated on the 1st floor which is architectured like a mezzanine gallery overlooking the ground floor and our table by the balustrades certainly afforded a full vista point. We ordered swiftly and recalled that the black rice and the asparagus, as well as the burger tapas were the ones we favoured from last time. We accompanied this with a glass of Shiraz as we are accustomed not to trusting Spanish wines that much, though there are some excellent ones of course. Service as mentioned in other reviews, is somewhat haphazard at times and it seems they have a friendly but slightly disorganised manner in their delivery, however all is not lost and it gets there as it were, be it with some spillage.
Its not a cheap evening either at Iberica, as one gradually realises after having frequented a number of tapas venues, that its not wholly always the pricing to be of blame of course, but often just the tapas format being one that lends itself to a little over eating without realising it until its too late!
Iberica is a hearty and good venue to tapas at however, and certainly one that I would return to again.
