“Great food, unfortunate circumstance.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

Have visited La Tasca a few times now around the country and have to say the food is fantastic. This time I went to the Bath branch with my partner and unfortunately they were short staffed this time round which led to a pretty manic atmosphere. The girls there have to be commended as they dealt with the situation brilliantly and remained very friendly, clearly wanting to put everything right. Although the food took a while to come it was well worth the wait. I will of course be returning despite the mania.

“Good overall”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

Food was great as was the service. We booked a table but were seated at a barrel in the bar as there were lots of hen parties in so no tables available. The music varied from appropriate to rubbish.

“Lovely as usual”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2014

Food was gorgeous as always! Had 8(!) tapas between the two of us including potatas bravas with cheese and now with aioli which made the dish even better! Also croquettas de manchego and albondigas are amazing! Service was good even though it was quite busy as the rugby was on in Bath. Atmosphere was great and romantic with a candle.

“Best Restaurant Around!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2014

Best tapas around! So many deals available, such as tapas for under £10, student prices, massive discounts on the loyalty card which is incredibly easy to sign up to, and really good food!

The team that work there are all super friendly and always deliver great service. The choice of cocktails is brilliant and you can never go wrong with a pitcher of traditional Spanish sangria, all made by the brilliant barman!

The restaurant is idyllically located on the Grand Empire just opposite the weir, Pultney Bridge and the home of Bath rugby, The Rec. Makes for pretty good seats on match day when you manage to get a seat by large windows looking out towards the ground and over the river. It is in the heart of the city, being right around the corner from the Abbey and all the shops that Bath has to offer, which makes it perfect for a pitstop from all that shopping or a fantastic dining experience in the evening.

The food is wonderful with lots of varieties of tapas from pork ribs to calamari to a goats cheese salad. The large paellas to share are also really tasty!

Cannot recommend La Tasca in Bath enough!

“Not the same”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2014

My husband and I have been to many a La Tasca! This one just wasn't the same, too light and airy, La Tasca should be dark, snug and atmospheric. The 6 courses we ordered arrived too quick, we were still eating bread and olives, it was as though the food was sat there already dished up but just waiting for someone to order it. It wasn't piping hot either. Wouldn't go back to this La Tasca
