“Reasonable value tasty lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012 via mobile

Despite my inherent distaste for chain restaurants, I like the tapas concept and have ventured here on a couple of occasions - most recently at lunchtime with my wife. The decor is not bad, quite stylish in some ways. We choose the lunchtime special menu which was good value for bread and two tapas dishes. Mind you, expensive drinks top the bill up. The pleasant surprise was that the food was excellent - fresh and tasty and adequate portion sizes for lunch. The olive oil for bread dipping was delicious. The service was efficient although not particularly friendly. Overall we enjoyed it and I think La Tasca does offer something a little unique in the town centre.

“Normally very good but disappointed last time”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We went here for the Halloween special set menu. The set menu is normally excellent, but this time it was dry and not as bigger portions as normal - chef was far too heavy with the garlic. Overall very disappointed. However will try again as hopefully this was a one off

“Change the staff!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Went here two weeks ago, my second visit to this particular La Tasca, the first visit I recommended it, this visit had it been my first I would never have returned, the waitress was rude and really couldn't be bothered to serve us, the place was virtually empty except for us, 6 females aged in our 40's, when we were deciding what we wanted she actually handed the pad and pen to my friend and said you write it down and when you're done give me a shout!! The food was ok but not quite up to the standard I had before and decidedly lacking from the standard in the Bristol La Tasca. We spent over £140 that quiet Wednesday, the Wednesday's will be a lot quieter in there if that attitude doesn't improve, needless to say we left no tip that night!!
