Family meal.

We visited la tasca Oxford last week. As usual the food and service were very good . Our only criticism. Is it's extremely dark , making it difficult to read the menu and identify the dishes . there was a vegetarian in our party. Overall though a good evening .

Hola Meggie2012!! I'm very glad you enjoyed your last visit with us! We try to have a romantic atmosphere in the evening, that's why maybe it's a little bit dark. However, in your next visit let us know where you prefer to sit and we'll accommodate you as your preferences to make it everything perfect! Muchas gracias! More

I would definitely recommend tapas of all kind. Unfortunately our paella was not as expected, however I would still recommend it: friendly staff, nice atmosphere, great tapas! As a suggestion, I would maybe put some nice Spanish background music, it would help to improve the overall Spanish experience!

Hola Chiara C! I'm very glad you enjoyed your last visit with us! I'll talk with the kitchen team to improve our paella recipe. We use to have music at the restaurant, maybe it was something wrong that day, for sure you'll have nice Spanish music in your next visit. See you soon! Muchas gracias! More

I wouldn't have thought that being in a restaurant entirely on our was going to be a delight, but it was. Started very well as we were offered the £9.95 lunch time tapas menu we didn't know existed (which didn't happen at Newbury) The offer happens every day except Saturday. The music was rocking, the server was singing in Spanish... More

particularly average food and not great service. As it was Valentines evening we were forced to choose from an overpriced version of the normal menu. The quality of the food wasn't great. We had to keep beckoning a waiter and it was very busy so that was no excuse. Halfway through the evening I visited the toilets, one cubicle had... More

Very good food, set menu was a very good selection, if anything the calamari was slightly over cooked and rubbery, the cava was excellent all the food (except the calamari) was excellent and the atmosphere was excellent.

Such a brilliant meal out, fab service, fab authentic Spanish atmosphere and absolutely amazing food. For starter we had cheesy garlic bread which full of flavour and cheesiness! For main we chose six tapas': Patatas Bravas con alioli, Patatas Bravas con alioli y queso, Chorizo, Croquetas de pollo, Albóndigas and Salsa Chicken wings. I can't choose a favourite because they...

La Tasca was a perfect evening filled with romance, pleasant staff, wonderful music and great food! Would recommend it to anyone and everyone! As a celiac I was pleasantly surprised by the amazing gluten free range offered by La Tasca and would definitely go again
