We booked a table with friends last night. It was very busy and clearly understaffed. The poor waitresses looked ready to cry. After waiting ten minutes we asked for a drinks menu. After we ordered our food we waited and hour and no mains had arrived when we checked with the waitress our order had not been submitted. The girl... More

Was looking forwards to some Spanish tapas on our visit to Durham, but we're we disappointed. The service was slow, the place was 25% full so the staff insisted on sitting everyone next to each other. The food was tasteless, mussels came out closed, the prawns were over cooked as was the squid. The only thing that stated of anything... More

The La Tasca cocktail masterclass was booked for a friend's birthday on Saturday 2nd May. Four of us were able to comfortably sit at the bar and were shown how to make three different cocktails, which we had pre-selected from their menu before we arrived. Ruth was great; she showed us how to measure the ingredients correctly and gave us... More

As a regular to La Tasca's around the UK I felt a little let down by my visit. The food, in comparison to other nearby restaurants was a little overpriced. I wish I had taken noticed of the menus of restaurants nearby before choosing 'the old faithful' La Tasca. A lesson learned for future. Not sure if the portions have... More

WOW!!!!! We had our wedding breakfast at La Tasca, Durham on 9/05/15. The food was fantastic, the staff were very attentive and couldn't do enough for us. If you want something different for your wedding breakfast then I thoroughly recommend La Tasca, Durham. All our guests really enjoyed it too.

Dropped in here for dinner, not a busy night but still a great atmosphere, staff really friendly and helpful. Ordered the fish starter to share and had fish paella for main both were excellent really enjoyed it all and San Miguel on draft went done very well also. Really like this place and worth a visit.

I visited here on a Monday night, at around 8.30pm. I was on a date, and as my date wanted tapas, I suggested here. Big mistake!! Wondered why it was so empty (I've never seen an empty La Tasca before, anywhere), now I think I know. The service was not great - the young guy working the floor (alone) didn't... More
