A bit of Spanish cuisine!

We really enjoyed our meal at La Tasca. Excellent customer service and the paella was one of the best I've eaten. To top it all we were given 4 glasses of different sangria so to try for free. A great night out!

It's always nice to take in the sunshine and enjoy some lovely food by the water front at Gunwharf Quays. La Tasca has a large indoor area on both floors and nice patio areas outside overlooking the water on both the ground and first floors. They often change their menu around it would seem but the variety and and cost... More

We were waiting to go on the evening ferry and went into la Tasca for a snacky evening meal. The service was very efficient and the house red went well . The five chosen tapas were well cooked,nicely flavoured and went down well . The only irritation was being asked TOO OFTEN were we enjoying the meal

We were a group of five and called in on a wet Monday lunchtime. The waitress was friendly and welcoming but the food was disappointing. We ordered from the lunch special which included a choice of three main course dishes each. The food arrived spasmodically with gaps of ten minutes between dishes meaning that some of us had nearly finished... More

We visited on a Monday lunchtime. Staff appeared stressed and a bit out of their depth. There didn't appear to be enough staff on. Our main waiter was lovely and friendly, albeit stressed himself! A waitress who brought our food was very abrupt and pretty much slammed our plates on the table. Food was nice, not amazing. Very good value... More

If you love Spanish Tapas, just go, the wine was a great Rioja Siglo, and the 10 dishes we had were superb, you could have shut your eyes and been back in Spain. The price was reasonable for Gun Wharf, taking into account every restaurant is 25% more expensive than the surrounding areas, we will be visiting again.

Visited yesterday with family including children (3x children ages 4,5 &6) food was good all finding something we enjoyed even for a very fussy child. Staff friendly and very reasonably priced overall very happy with where we decided to stop for lunch.

Everything was just perfect. Food fabulous. Dancing going on inside which we found entertaining! Service was brilliant. The background of the boats made fro a perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
