It's safe to say that I thoroughly enjoyed my first visit to Ibérica Glasgow and thanks to Chef Garcia's thoughtful tasting menu, I already know some of the dishes that I will be ordering next time I visit.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Ibérica Glasgow to friends and family and whilst the menu may not be the cheapest out there, I believe that the quality of cooking, generous portion sizes and the luxurious surroundings will have diners returning time and again.
I would like to thank the staff and management for inviting me along to try out the latest branch of Ibérica and wish them every success in the future.
