I have been wanting to visit Iberico World Tapas in Nottingham for some time now. It is owned by the same people that own World Service, a restaurant that I love. Not only do I love World Service but I really like tapas food. Its perfect when you want to try a number of different dishes.
When Rach and I decided that we would go to Iberico Tapas, I went straight online to look at the menu. I was impressed right away with the way the food looked. Each dish online looked and sounded incredible!
On arriving we went down the stairs (as it is underground) of the Galleries of Justice. It is a grade 2 listed building. The inside is really stylish with nice decor and great seating.
The environment is relaxed with plenty of seating but they are not positioned to close together. We ordered a drink at the bar and waiting for our table to be ready.
What’s The Location Like?
The location of Iberico tapas is good with it being in the heart of the lace market. Its within walking distance of some nice bars such as All Bar One and Pitcher and Pendulum. Ideal if you want a couple of drinks before or after your tapas!
The fletcher gate car park is within walking distance, perfect if driving in. Taxi ranks are right near the restaurant if you are looking to get a taxi home.
If you are staying in the centre then there is a Ibis hotel, which is only a 2 minute walk from Iberico world tapas.
What Tapas Did I have at Iberico Nottingham?
There is an incredible selection of tapas to have at Iberico. I could have chosen everything on the menu!
The prices do vary but I actually think they are very reasonable. Below are the dishes that Racha and I enjoyed. I would recommend each and everyone of them.
Catalan Bread – £3.50
The Catalan bread was perfectly toasted, topped with tomato and herbs….yummy!!
Ham Croquetas – £5.95
Rach had been before and told me how good these were. We couldn’t not have them this time, so I could enjoy them. Along with the ham is burnt Aubergine, Manchego and pickled shallots. (I really would recommend these!)
Spicy Miso Salmon – £6.95
I didn’t try this as it was a dish Rach had. She did however say it tasted excellent and the salmon had great flavours. If you do like salmon, give it a go!
Potato & Onion Tortilla – £4.95
Cannot have tapas without a potato dish really! We usually have Patatas Bravas but wanted to try something different. The Potato and Onion tortilla was perfect, it was nice and soft and was a great addition.
Onglet Beef Skewers – £6.95
These skewers also came with a tasty truffle sauce. The beef itself was very tender and full of flavour.
Rhubarb Tart – Unknown
Rach had the Rhubarb Tart, however It was a special so I cannot remember the price. I didn’t have any myself but she did say it tasted very nice. As you can see from the picture, there was plenty of Rhubarb!
A Taste Of Something Sweet – £5.95
If you are going to have a dessert then please do get this one!!
I cannot remember everything that was on it but I know they tasted amazing. You get 5 little desserts which did include a Macaroon, brownie and a truffle. I really would recommend this one.
What was the service like at Iberico World Tapas?
I thought the service at Iberico Nottingham was excellent. I would not have expected anything else though. Having experienced the service at World Service, I knew it would be just as good here.
We didn’t have to wait long for our table, even though we were a bit early. The waitress that served us was excellent. She was very friendly and was happy to explain dishes on the menu.
With it being tapas the dishes came out as and when they were ready. This is typical with tapas but it was done very well.
The team behind Iberico World Tapas should be very happy with their waiting staff. They should also be very happy with their behind house staff, the food was cooked perfect!
Final Foodie Thought On Iberico Tapas
One of the things I really like is the high quality food but it’s not a stuffy restaurant. Iberico World Tapas is perfect for a group meal or even a romantic meal together.
If you are looking for one of the best places to eat Tapas in Nottingham, you cannot go wrong with here. It offers high quality, sophisticated food but a relaxed environment.
Iberico Nottingham, really is a restaurant that you have to try if you haven’t already!
The only downside to Iberico World Tapas is the fact that I couldn’t try every dish. That does mean that i’ll just have to go again….hopefully soon!
