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

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.
