I had eaten here before with my grown up children which was superb and promised my sister I would take her and this restaurant did not disappoint again. It was very quiet, well 18-18.30 on a Sunday to be expected but service very speedy, we chose three different tapas each, all a good portion and shared those, all superb, a... More

We were recommended to eat here , but were disappointed with the food . We ordered calamari fritto, spicy prawns and a couple of other dishes to complete our Tapas selection . The calamari had very little flavour and wasn't properly soft inside and crisp on the outside , whilst the prawns were swimming in a red oil which again... More

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
