A special night with another couple! My husband and I loved the tapas bars in Barcelona, so this was a refreshing and excellent choice after 12 days of cruise dining. Our server steered us toward a chef’s tasting menu, and every choice was divine. We sampled sea bass, smoked octopus, shrimp and lobster fritters, and paella, to name a few.

Excellente cuisine et très bon service. Cependant il est préférable de manger au bar si on est 2 pour le repas parce que l'endroit est très bruyant et donc on devrait éviter de faire jouer de la musique en plus.

We spent a wonderful evening at Iberica. Beautiful restaurant, with an old world vibe in a modern setting. The food was delicious, their pan de tomate was even better than in Barcelona! Cod fritters were light and of course patatas bravas, with a refined twist, super tasty. Wonderful fresh fish and ceviche and an interesting wine pairing from the Canary Islands. The best part was the service though, welcoming and attentive. We will definitively be back!

Our party of 6 had dinner on 9/10. Every dish was spectacular. Our server Maria was awesome! She helped with ordering portion sizes and recommendations. We tried the ham and the lobster coquettes, two paellas, (with lots of grilled veggies) ribeye, tenderloin, octopus, anchovie tapas and tomato salad dishes. The octopus was a definite favorite. We picked a whole fish from the ice display that was grilled perfectly and served table side. For dessert the cookie dough donuts were just the right ending. Our group had one vegetarian and a gluten free diner. Everyone found several dishes to enjoy. The mushroom side was delicious enough to be a separate dish. The Spanish wine selection was diverse and the house wines by the glass were nice pours. The only downside were the dirty martinis which were made with olives that had pits and not cured (somewhat typical in Canada but Not the USA) We will return every time we are in Montreal!

First the positive. Great decor. Friendly welcoming from hostess, waiter and staff. Nice open kitchen where you can see the team at work. The place gives the impression of being a Spanish version of Café Ferreira. Unfortunately, it is limited to the decor only. The menu is quite exhaustive so we asked the waiter to prepare a menu for us, knowing that my wife wanted paella and I was curious to try one of the house "specialties", bavette of pork. The waiter asked if any of us had allergies, which was not the case, but did not fully explain what he had chosen for us. We expected more seafood dishes based on what was on the menu. The joselito ham was a disappointment. The paella had a good variety of quality seafood, but was very salty. The bavette of pork was cold and the meat was hard. The chimichurri sauce was ok, but not memorable. Despite our disappointment, we nevertheless ordered dessert and chose the chocolate mouse with "fleur de sel" and olive oil. The salt on the mousse felt more like kosher thick salt than "fleur de sel" and the toasted pieces of baguette that accompanied the balls of chocolate ganache made the dish somewhat odd. We do not know why the waiter did not offer us coffee. Finally, despite the very nice decor, the music was inappropriately loud and energetic. It felt as if we were in a supper club but without a dance floor. Would not recommend for a nice date with your loved one.

First time awesome experience.
Second time quite poor! Pork arrived cold! Warmed up then but overcooked!
had to leave 2/3ds.
At least you did not charge for that plate...the appropriate thing to do.

Excessively noisy, hard to carry a conversation.

I will try it again thinking of first experience.
