We called in today looking forward to tapas but didn't stay to sample the fare. We entered the restaurant and waited to be seen. We saw about 3 or 4 tables with diners and whilst we waited I heard a man sitting with his wife grumbling about something. I couldn't quite make out what he was complaining to his wife... More

Very tasty food and friendly service. Great for introducing a group of people to each other. Good for student graduation meals - of which this was one

On a trip to visit Durham University we ate at La Tasca. Expecting the city to be busy I booked on line for 3 people. When we found out that a friend was also visiting we changed the booked to 4 people and also changed the time. Despite being busy the staff were very obliging. The restaurant as expected was... More

It was our first visit to a La Tasca restaurant and we very pleasantly surprised by the venue and the great choices on the menu. Staff were attentive without being in your face and the food was served promptly and was... More

Craig H is a credit to La Tasca he is knowledgeable, friendly and very customer focused. He encourages us to try new dishes and always checks that we are ok. The food is good and there is a very comprehensive menu. Babies are welcome and high chairs are available.

Booked a table on line, although it was very quiet when we arrived early on a Friday afternoon, and it would not have been necessary. Young lady who served us was pleasant and cheerful, and tapas food very good with a wide range of choice. Each tapas was sufficient for all four of us to have a share, and drinks... More

During a recent weekend stay in Durham, we visited the La Tasca restaurant on the Friday evening. Without reserving a table we was made very welcome by a lovely waitress called Joanne. Joanne looked after us all evening, the food was without fault and the atmosphere was great, nothing was too much trouble for Joanne. We enjoyed it so much... More
