Superb food with great service

We visited for my wife's birthday. The food was superb as always,especially the octopus gratin. Our waitress was very friendly and attentive despite an unusually busy lunchtime. Thoroughly recommended.

Noisy music - not Spanish - creased and scruffy menu cards, very small portions, poster decorations looked fake, and a small list of menu options didn't make for a great experience, but cheap.

Having not been to La Tasca for five years or so, I was really looking forward to being reacquainted with the cuisine. How mightily disappointed I was. The service and surroundings are fine but the food I had was ghastly. The meatballs were burnt and what sauce there was was sickly dried tomato. The chicken stew was oily and watery... More

Friendly servers who made conversation. Even on a busy Friday night the food still came out promptly, no waiting around for the bill at the end and was good quality. Would visit again.

Food was lovely flavours ruined by luke warm temperature. Hot food in stone cold dishes. Under staffed. Long wait for the bill. Complained to staff and no recompense on our bill. Will not return or recommend you visit this restaurant. Over priced for small portions of cold food. Disappointing as lovely location and staff very friendly.

Lovely evening, well served and delicious new menu. Watch those Tapas - cost adds up! Just got finished in time to catch our film. :-)

On a warm sunny day in April all we wanted was a drink, a cool beer and a breath of fresh air. Whilst waiting for the somewhat overstretched barman to work through the wall of thirsty punters I watch a member of staff grumbling about not getting help out front.... Finally our turn and what a nice and friendly Portuguese... More

Beautiful meal at La Tasca tonight. Bread, meat and cheese board sharing starter was amazing and would highly recommend. A mixture of 5 tasty mains complimented by a great atmosphere, picturesque view and excellent service from Pedro our waiter. Would recommend this place to anyone who is visiting Portsmouth and wants to eat by the sea. We will be definitely... More
