My hotel concierge recommended Iberica, so I tried it out. I wasn’t disappointed! The restaurant has a great ambience, despite the COVID related precautions like perspex between tables, which didn’t really intrude and gave a feeling of comfort about sanitary precautions.

The menu was varied with lots to choose from and very well presented. Also a good wine list. Service was prompt and friendly. It had a very Spanish feel both in atmosphere and menu.

All in all, a great choice. I’ll be back!

Les tapas qui nous ont été suggérés par la serveuse étaient excellents ainsi que le vin recommandé par le cellier. Malheureusement la paella aux fruits de mer était vraiment décevante! Le riz était collant et l’assiette était très petite pour le prix payé. Nous étions assis devant le four et il y avait malheureusement beaucoup de bruit.

I was planning to have a small snack and drink before my late night meal at the place, I ended up with a very satisfying dinner. I chose the location because it is very close to my hotel and it is convenience to everywhere else. It definitely exceeded my expectation on simple tapas and drinks.

The clams I had was lovely, it was very tasty even though the portion looks small, along with the bread and its tasty sauce, it just filled me up. The atmosphere is very comfortable, I would highly recommend it for you to come with your friends; it would be a nice place to chat.

Unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to go upstairs to check out the second floor and i didn't want to random roam around the place since we are in a global pandemic.

Be careful with the sink after you go to the washroom, it is pretty but also quite hard to control the water level, plus the water is quite hot if you don't know how to adjust it.

Employees are a very friendly; I had a nice chat with the Hostess to keep me company after she was aware that I came from Vancouver for the weekend getaway in Montreal by myself

I finally tried a paella and it was disappointing: the rabbit was not tender at all, the amount of rice was quite minimal and overall the dish was excessively salty.
My other experiences at Ibérica were good though.

My wife and I came to celebrate our honeymoon in Montreal with Iberica as our first stop to dine. The staff clearly saw my note on that and made our night very special; great table, plenty of attention to detail, overall and 10/10 performance. The food was the real show stopper though - expertly plated and perfectly seasoned, with portion sizes that gave you enough while leaving you dreaming about more.

Beautifully designed space, but extremely noisy. Prepare to shout all night. Cold reception from host at the door. (Exasperated because we were 7 instead of 6, as per reservation). The service was attentive but almost too much: Server rushed to pick up empty plates, even if some guests were still eating. This felt more like a cantina as opposed to an upscale restaurant. The food was good, very little green choice - as per traditional Spanish fare. The space is long and narrow, and as a guest, you feel like you are always in the staff's way. The location is a less than cool neighbourhood, so it is more of a "destination" as opposed to a "drop by" place. The ratio food/price was out of balance. Honest food, but really too expensive for what it is. I would not go back, mostly for the poor reception we got and for the deafening noise.

On vacation in Montreal and we were looking for a nice place to enjoy a higher end dinner, so we tried Iberica. Some guy who was supposedly their wine expert recommended a Spanish white which we decided to try. The pour was maybe 3 oz of wine for $18 per glass. Two sips and it was gone. So in order to avoid mortgaging the house just to have wine with dinner, we decided to order a bottle of a little more expensive wine from the same region. Their wine expert guy warned us that it is a very complex wine, as though we weren’t capable of appreciating it. Again, he left us with a two sip pour. After one sip, I attempted to pour more wine in my wife’s glass and then a little more in mine, when a waitress dashed over and literally ripped the bottle from my hand. I’m assuming this was intended to demonstrate high service, but it was just rude and offensive. The various tapas we ordered were lacking in flavor. We had the oysters for an appetizer and they were really good, but the food QMT downhill from there. The table was wedged between two other tables separated by glass dividers. But you were literally inches from the adjacent table. $300 that I’ll never get back.

The entries were very good (cauliflower, octopus, etc.). My wife could not eat the seafood Paella because there was gluten in it (flour), which is strange to me (I searched Google for traditional paella recipes, and out of the top 30 hits, only one of them had flour (Jamie Oliver) used for browning the chicken. But I must say that she didn't miss anything, since the paella was not very good. A sure sign of a subpar paella: no socarrat, the crusty crispy bottom of the paella. Obviously, it was not cooked in the pan, but probably reheated or partially cooked in the pan (in such case, the rice was probably partly cooked). While the other items were good, and some very good, I would stay away from the paella.

Beautiful resto and good menu but everything was very mediocre. Not a single tapa we ordered was a hit, they were all edible but not worth the price. The patatas bravas were very disappointing!!
