Rather pricey but quite good

Good service and it seemed a shame that the restaurant was so quiet. The staff were very friendly and welcoming although I did feel the prices were rather high for what you got. The meal itself was ok my calamari was rather greasy but the majority of the food was fine.

We'd never tried tapas before, and we all loved it! Our 13 yr old found lots of vegetarian choices and we were made to feel very welcome by Matias.

Great value as we went on Tapas Tuesday , £2.50 per tapas. Staff very helpful and lovely food, just a shame it's hard to park locally in the evening now that the Westgate carpark is shut.

We now go here care of our tesco vouchers! I really think this is the best spanish food in Oxford, maybe assisted by the fact that the staff are Spanish/ Argentinian so know there stuff! Really good seafood, would recommend the rioja also and meatballs......

Excellent food cooked to perfection and served by a welcoming, friendly and happy team. Once again we were well looked after and we'll fed. La Tasca never fails to impress.

The staff were very friendly and welcoming, able to make recommendations when asked. The food was delicious and we were served very quickly, with each dish named and described as it was placed in the centre. The only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is the cocktails weren't good. The sangria was great though.

La Tasca has long been a favourite place to go and eat for us, mainly because it's usually very very quiet on weekday nights and the food and service are always excellent (as are their prices).

Must visit on a Saturday if you like sangria.The market is on the Saturday so try and get there before 4pm to enjoy the sweet tunes playing. It's a hive of activity in the afternoon but still relaxing. Wish could have spent more time here!
