    Overall:

    The meal at Iberico World Tapas in Derby was great. The waitress asked if we had been before and fully explained how it worked when ordering. She also had a good knowledge of the different dishes and the party was able to swap some dishes that they didn't like. The ambience of the restaurant is a relaxed, cool, chic vibe and before we knew it 2 hours had passed by. I would thoroughly recommend it and would definitely book again.

    Great restaurant and service, everything is done to perfection, always. Staff are perfect, all except one, whom whilst Im sure is a great guy, calls people chaps, and it is a bit too loud for the otherwise nice ambiance, he's more suited to Byron than Iberico.

    Overall:

    Had a lovely meal with some friends at Iberico, I had been before but they hadn't and they liked the decor and ambience. We chose this restaurant because they had a Summer offer on which we tried and very much enjoyed. The food is a Spanish tapas theme with an Asian twist. Most of the dishes are reasonably priced, there are a few exceptions which weren't included in the deal. The highlights for us were the half charcuterie board and the Taste of Something dessert which had a selection of tasty morsels which rounded off the meal nicely. Good selection of wine and other drinks too.

    We went for a girls night out and had a fabulous time at Iberico Derby. The service was great, there was a good choice of dishes on the menu and the food was really tasty. The miso salmon was a particular favourite of mine. It was £40 a head, but we did have 3 bottles of wine included in that, which I think is a reasonable price.

    Very nice meal for two early evening. All the dishes we chose were really good. Asked for meat to be well done as my Mum doesn't like it pink but still lovely and tender - no problems with the request either. Service was attentive but not OTT, able to help with selections from the menu. Cocktails also lovely. The 'bit of everything'-style dessert was wonderful too. Will definitely be going again!

    The food was delicious and well presented at Iberico Tapas. I expected it to be more expensive for the quality but was pleasantly surprised. The service was excellent, however, I only gave it 4 stars as our waiter was a little uptight and reserved for a Friday night he just needed to lighten up a bit! Overall though fantastic and would definitely return!

A waiter who served us drinks etc and bought our food out was very polite he explained what each dish was and couldn't do enough for us.

    Overall:

    This was our first time here. We have had Tapas at other places before, but nothing like this! The service was excellent - professional, efficient, swift. We opted for the £11.95 lunchtime deal of 2 dishes each plus dessert and bread. Not easy to decide between such a mouthwatering array of choices. We had the shin of beef, chicken wings, mackerel and barbecued cauliflower. Each one superb in its presentation, and each one absolutely delicious. The toasted sour bread starter was equally excellent. For dessert we chose a couple of dishes that were new to the menu. These were less impressive - my husband's fruity cake was delicious and almondy but a bit hard and dry. I opted for Peach Alaska , which was interesting but not quite what I was expecting. Beautifully presented however. In all it was a most pleasant experience and we would happily make a return visit with friends before long.

    Overall:

    Delightful restaurant with interesting food. The menu is Spanish tapas with a twist, I detected a decidedly Asian influence. We opted for the Express lunch offer which was very good value with Catalan tomato bread, 2 tapas and dessert. I particularly liked the ox cheek dish. The portions are rations rather than bar size tapas so two dishes each was plenty and fun to share. The dessert of clementine, vanilla parfait and sumac was light and refreshing. Very good choice of wines by the glass and not one but three 30 year old sherries to choose from. A little indulgent for Friday lunchtime but nostalgia for our trip to Spain forced us to indulge. The staff were friendly and attentive without being intrusive, always a perfect combination. Will defintely go back for another visit.
