We ate in La Regata on Saturday night. We are regular visitors to this family run restaurant & think it's about time we gave it a review. I've eaten in many top notch restaurants all over the world but what i love about La Regata is it has the whole package. Firstly the building is very tastefully decorated in a... More

Made an impromptu early Sunday evening visit with family/friends and have to say absolutely loved the food! We shared the mixed meat and mixed fish tapas selection and were all really pleased. Special mention to the datiles cabrales (dates) dish, not something any of us would have chosen but will from now on and also the pulpo a la gallega,... More

We booked this, primarily as we hadn't yet tried a Spanish restaurant in the UK and it seemed to offer some good seafood. We arrived earlier than our booking time for 630pm but were happily taken to our table and also offered drinks at the bar. Our table was upstairs and was nice but I asked if we could have... More

My husband and I always visit this restaurant when we are celebrating something special. The service is superb and as we are both huge fans of authentic Spanish food, this is the best we can get without having to leave the UK. I would highly recommend their food. If you go, don't be tight order lots of dishes and ask... More

We have just had the best meal/evening at La Regata. It was just brilliant. Not only is the food top quality the service and staff were fantastic. Jamie and his team really do look after their clients, nothing seemed like too much trouble. We were a table of 4 on quite a busy friday evening, but they still managed to... More

First the bad news: the location isn't great, or rather it would be if it wasn't for the dual carriageway, the massive car park and the container ships that occasionally steal across the view. Now the good news: what a fabulous tapas restaurant. We went there on a quiet lunchtime. The staff were really, really friendly and helpful, the restaurant... More

We went to La Regatta for my sons birthday we had been there before as a family and we always find the atmosphere really friendly and the food great. We ordered a selection of Tapas as starters only problem, which of the many do you choose? Including the specials board choosing a main course is equally difficult with a good... More
