Ibérica la Terraza Canary Wharf Review

I’m generally not a believer in Spanish food since an unfortunate experience with a less than OK paella as a young boy – but I quite like Ibérica’s terrace smack in the middle of Canary Wharf, surrounding by skyscrapers.

Recently, Canary Wharf has up’d its restaurant and bar game considerably, as the skyline contiues to expand, but it’s still mostly just chain after chain of identical Brown’s and All Bar One’s. But, Ibérica in Cabot Square is a good convenient spot for something a bit different – at least if you’re outside on the terrace anyway, which only serves tapas and pinchos alongside a pretty decent menu of cocktails.

The thing that keeps me coming back though isn’t the food and drink, but rather the atmosphere which in the evening is wonderfully laidback with stringed lights that hang from the trees and a sky broken up by some of London’s biggest buildings. The cocktails aren’t exactly groundbreaking, rather just classics like Berry Cavarinha (Cava, blackberries, raspberries, lime, sugar & Chambord) and Mojito. And the Tapas is good enough, with the usual selection of cured meats and cheeses. But terrace is one of the better, less crowded options for an evening drink in Canary Wharf.
