Tasty Tapas!

Had a large range of tapas and all were delicious, especially the meatballs and chicken with chorizo. Really pleasant waitress who helped us pick a few dishes. Would definitely recommend!

We ate early evening in a relaxed and busy atmosphere. We are just passing through Durham so may not be back this way, but we will try other branches of La Taca... More

Lovely, earthy place. Great food and atmosphere and lovely staff. So many choices. If you have never been before remember the dishes are small so you will need two or more depending on your appetite. We mixed and matched and had a glass of wine each and sweet. It was lovely.

Came for my partners birthday and again didn't fail to disappoint. Really doesn't feel like chain. The place is so warm and inviting and all staff are polite and friendly. Would highly recommend for a perfect night out in Durham.
