First time at La Tasca so intrigued to find out how authentic the food was. Nice friendly welcome and all the staff friendly anfd attentive. Portions were on the small side and I thought expensive for what you got. . One last thing. It's nice to finish your starter and then have your main. Not have the main appear 1/2... More

Nice food, appalling service. It took nearly half an hour for our starter - a simple bowl of salted almonds - to arrive, although the place was half empty. Even longer for a glass of water for which we had to ask twice. The table outside was filthy.

I went here with my two boys as it is next to the city beach. I was not expecting authentic tapas but..... The patatas bravas were like split pebbles. The rustic bread platter was three thin slices garlic ciabatta. The chopped carrots for the kids were both limp and brown. The garlic prawns were OK as were the kids chips.... More

This was my sons first visit and he now loves tapas as well! We love the variety of dishes and the fact that our son could try lots of new dishes. He also loved the non alcaholic cocktails and the wine is also good.

Nine of us visited early evening and enjoyed an excellent, good value meal. The service was very good too - so why only an average score? The ladies cloakrooms - three cubicles and not one toilet roll between them.

Hola Rosie240 I am so glad that you had a great experience in our restaurant and yet again not happy with myself and my team as we clearly missed some toilet checks during this evening.

I was very excited to go to this restaurant and enjoy a nice evening of Sangria and tasty paella. Unfortunately, the service was great, but the food was mediocre, at best. The paella was mostly rice and somewhat bland while the sangria completely disappointed. There was very little fruit and it tasted like juice. The atmosphere was nice, but if... More

This restaurant has an excellent location for guests staying at nearby Hotel Malmaison, but beware: this is hardly an authentic Spanish restaurant. Avoid the Sangria; it's very sweet, with little noticeable booze. We had some excellent starters: fried Manchego, tasty bread, but the Paella was dry, with too much rice and not enough meat. This place is a great shelter... More

The food was excellent. The service was slow. The waiter didn't understand us sometimes and didn't bring our whole starter.
