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

The food was very good and we enjoyed that part of it. Service was indifferent (although the two on duty did work hard) and we were disappointed to see this level still exists in our restaurants. We thought it pricey for what it was.

We visited La Regata to celebrate my husband's birthday and as always it was amazing! The food is always so delicious, the service efficient and friendly without being rushed and the restaurant has a lovely relaxed atmosphere. You completely forget you are in England! Cannot wait for our next visit!

A lovely family run business, great service with friendly staff. Also have a good time here, very fresh and typically spanish food. Perfect place for any event, great for all the family. Situated in a nice quietish location yet vibrant evening, seating is available outside. Have been here loads of times and will continue to return.

Our first visit too this fab tapas bar and we will definitely return. We arrived early so had a few drinks at the bar and I was really pleased to be served a really cold bottle of rose. Staff were friendly and very efficient. We were shown to our table and the waitress helped us with our choices. We all... More

Return visit and chose the fish selection of tapas. Octopus and squid tender; crispy whitebait and sardines; Ensaladadilla Rusa quite authentic. Portions overly generous somewhat! Very friendly staff but a bit rushed off their feet. Toilet facilities could do with an upgrade.
