Lovely food, unusually bad service this time!

Lovely restaurant with outside seating around a lovely quiet square by the converted prison. La tasca serves lovely tapas, and I've always found them to be superb. They accept the gourmet society card for discount on food and drink, parking is a problem for all places in Oxford, but there are... read more

I have been there on Saturday, I really like the sangria as well as the environment. It is a pretty affordable place giving the location in the center of Oxford. Perfect for a dinner or just to some tapas. The waitress Camilla was very nice and able to speak Spanish, English and Italian. Strongly reccomended!

Went to La Tasca, Oxford following son's Graduation from Brookes Uni. Staff very friendly and on hearing the reason for our visit presented us with a complimentary bottle of Cava, a very nice touch. Huge selection of Tapas - vegetarian, meat and seafood - each a very generous portion too. Lovely Lindita our waitress was really helpful as we struggled... More

The staff here were very accommodating and attentive here. I visited as part of a larger group, however the service was smooth and quick. The food was delicious and all arrived at the same time which was great. Only complaint is that it does seem very expensive. The food bill for our group came to about £35 per head, and... More

We went to La Tasca in Oxford with our energetic 3 year old on Sunday afternoon. Have to say that the staff were really friendly - and made it very welcoming. The food was very nice - ts always take a bit longer than most other places for the food to come but I think that's because it's tapas and... More

Didnt have a great experience at 'La Tasca'. They were probably short of staff that day and the turnaround time for orders was very bad. We waited too long for food!

I recently went here with friends and it was such a disappointing experience. 1) The service was slow and poor. The guy who was serving us kept on forgetting about us and when we called him over was quite rude and passive. 2) The food was average -The seafood particularly was really poorly cooked. Squid overdone. The drinks were great... More

The food at La Tasca, what can I say? It was truly delicious after an afternoon at Oxford Castle and the staff were the friendliest kid-loving people I have ever known to work in a restaurant. My friends kids were provided with good quality colouring, not just some cheap print off, thought had actually been put into them. We were... More

Nice night here. Restaurant very clean and the staff were very attentive. Food was a little slower than I expected but this gave us all the more time to chat rubbish in a nice atmosphere. Food was very nice, nothing spectacular but tasty and well prepared. See you soon.
