Been to La Tasca in Durham today for the first time. And certainly not the last. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the food it was all full of flavour and very well presented. The staff are friendly and helpful, I can't recommend this place enough.

Visited on a Tuesday lunchtime. Special offer of selected tapas for £2.50 was on. There was a very good range, so we selected 5 which turned out to be more than enough for lunch. Food quality and service were both excellent. Many thanks to Ruth and the team for making our visit so enjoyable. We will return!

Really enjoyed our visit to La Tasca. My husband and I were celebrating our first night out together since having our 6 month old daughter and the food and service was wonderful.

The service, as usual was excellent, friendly and efficient nothing being too much of a trouble. Food very good, very well timed to keep 16 people happy.

Just enjoyed a great weekend evening with friends. Food, drinks and service was very good (Gemma was our waitress). Reasonable prices for what we all ate and drank plus ask about becoming a member for further discount. We would go back. Lots of various tapas to choose from. Advisable to book at the weekends.

Went to La Tasca with family during recent visit to Durham University. Main reason to select this restaurant was the wide choice of Gluten free food on the menu as my wife is coeliac. Arrived around 1900hrs and restaurant already getting busy and by the time we left at 2030 it was full ! The staff were welcoming, food variety... More
