Awesome Discounted Price

There was a 50% January sale thing which made the visit very worth it. I ordered some Jamon Serrano, 2 plates of tapas and a paella. Everything was great except for the paella, which was quite watery. However, because of the great prices, I have nothing much to complain about.

Well I have been to La Tasca many times and always find it a good quality standard eating place. The food again did not disappoint. So this time my friend and I thought we'd try the cocktails, one mojito was £5.95 and a pitcher £16.00. We decided on a pitcher between the two of us (more the merrier right!) well... More

I was one of a party of 24 visiting the restaurant on Saturday evening. Both the service and food was fantastic, the staff were friendly and very efficient. I would highly recommend a visit.

The beetroot salad was a... More

Visited last week for dinner with my boyfriend. The service was very friendly and efficient, the restaurant was by no means busy, but the atmosphere was still good. Both the sangria and the food we ordered were amazing. I especially enjoyed the patatas bravas and the Mondadori de cerdo (pulled pork on crusty bread). We have a tastecard so it... More

On Saturday 30th January La Tasca in Durham accommodated a very large party of 30 people from our conference held at Durham University. As is the case with large parties such as this, there were a multitude of special dietary requirements, which the staff at La Tasca fantastically catered too. Their service was impeccable, friendly, and made the experience of... More

We visited as it had been sometime since we had last been. It was very busy (expected on a Saturday night), quite noisy but the person who served us was very good. The food was very good & plentiful, look forward to our next visit
