The best kids meal in Oxford!

I took my 5 year old daughter here for lunch in the school holidays. Unlike in many restaurants, the kids meal is made with quality ingredients, just like adults would expect, but with less of a strong flavour to better suit a kid's palate. I'm tired of kid's meals including a variety of deep-fried... read more

It was our first visit to the UK La Tasca restaurant chain on Easter Sunday 2015 location at Oxford. We were greeted by a member of staff as we entered, who then showed us a choice of seating locations. This first encounter was very friendly making us both feel welcomed and relaxed. We choose the set menu of "Tapas for... More

Amazing place. Four of us went, had tapas from the special £10 a head menu and for £54 had lunch, soft drinks and sangria in a wonderful jar mug. The food was lovely. Amazing warm bread, 4 pieces each, with dipping oil. The salted calamari, battered whitefish and potatoes with spinach and blue cheese were my favourites. That batter was... More

Had a meal with an old chum here on Monday evening (23/03/15) and was very pleased with the experience. Although a cold wet week night it really did feel as if I had walked into a little bit of Spain. While waiting for my friend to turn up I had a pint of San Miguel and watched the tango dancing...

We have a taste card (discount card) so the cost of the meal was reduced. Shared 6 tapas dishes and got the three cheapest free so good value. Generally the food was good but a couple of dishes with batter were a bit on the soft side. Don't usually eat in chain restaurant but for a cheap Lucy it was... More

Despite being a chain, the food here is superb, far superior to the other tapas restaurants in Oxford. Very fresh enormous prawns, squid cooked to perfection. Excellent atmosphere and a free salsa class too on a Friday night!
