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... read more

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!

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.
