Spent many an evening relaxing in La Rioja. Food is always excellent and the staff friendly & welcoming. They have some great Special Tapas on at the moment - the pan-fried Scallops & Prawns are worth a try. If Tapas or seafood is not your thing then go for a steak as I can honestly say that I can't remember... More

We go to Altrincham quite often as we live not far away. Although there are many restaurants here. For us there are only 2 exellent ones we keep on going back to time & time again. Franks is one the other is La Rioja. Both as good as each other. Franks is French/English. La Rioja is Spanish Tapas. You will... More

Went to La Rioja Saturday night. As we were being seated the table next to us were just complaining their food wasn't cooked and they left. We thought, its busy, must be a one off. We ordered a mixed starter for 2 and several dishes for our main course. Part of our starter came and they sent the main course... More

Ok, where do I start? The beginning... We have not been to La Rioja for a few months due to us having a 'disapointing', but not 'terrible' meal the last time. We wanted to give them a second chance as everyone can have an off day, unfortunatley they managed to upgrade to terrible this time... The welcome was the best... More

First impressions were good, nice ambiance. Waitress was slow to offer drinks not the end of the world but slightly annoying. It took 20 mins for the waitress to come back and take the food order. Ok that’s the mild rant over…. FOOD: Some of the tapas were clearly defrosted in the microwave. One particular dish was still frozen at... More

Went with Friends and it was my first taste of Spanish Tapas and I enjoyed the food very much. Family run place and that is reflected in all they do, however they could benefit from more staff as although service was good, it was a little slow. Poor range of drinks available, but the variety of food is vast and... More

To start i think the good reviews were wrote by the owners/staff at the restaurant. We went to there as a couple, it was lacking in atmosphere and taste. From the moment we walked in it was dirty, there was poor service from the staff and the young woman who told us to 'sit over there in the corner' wasnt... More

I went to la Rioja with my friends on a Saturday night. We'd heard it was a good tapas place. The service was really attentive; the food was good and prices were reasonable. However I think El Rincon de Rafa in Manchester is a better Spanish. So a good option to eat in Altrincham but you'll find better Spanish somewhere... More

We have visited La Rioja on two occasions now and have not been disappointed. The food here is incredible, with such a wide range of tapas, there truly is something for everyone. In the week the atmosphere is very relaxed and the staff are always helpful and friendly. At weekends it is more lively with a live singer, a Spanish... More
