“What a cracker”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2014

Was recommended this cracking tapas restaurant, and my do they deliver. Each dish hit the spot in its own way, great flavors and simply presented. Very good value and good service. Not i have to say the most stylish restaurant I have been to but certainly excellent value food. Keep up the standards

“Quick Lunch 1st May”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2014 via mobile

Really good lunch time deal 3 tapas £6. Very good selection on the lunch time list. The tapas were great and very good value. I also had a Mahou sin at £2 for a bottle and is a good low alcohol beer. The overall food menu looks great and a good selection of Spanish wine ,beer, sherry and a couple of Spanish Ciders on the list. I would say the is the best place in Central Glasgow for Tapas at the moment

“terrific tapas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014

Read about restaurant in local paper. Exellent food, well prepared and presented to us in stages
rather than all at once. Good variety of dishes, both hot and cold. Staff friendly and helpful. A great eating experience.

Hi thanks so much for taking the time to place a review of La Boca on this site.
I'm delighted you enjoyed your visit, and fully appreciated the way we present
The food.....NOT all at once.
I'm still trying to understand why other places in Glasgow bring all out at the one time. It's not the way it's done in Spain, as you are no doubt aware.
We look forward to welcoming you back.

“Tapas at its best, i think so!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2014

I decided to check this place out on the basis of the Tripadvisor reviews and I must say I wasn't disappointed, I can't wait to go back.

I've had tapas at a few different restaurants in town and this is just seemed so much more fresh, if you want tapas done authentically, cooked fresh and served with passion then this is a must visit.

You have to try the patatas bravas - we had two (huge) portions they were amazing, cooked to perfection.

The staff here were very on the ball, they've obviously tried the full menu and aren't afraid to make any recommendations on the menu. This is really refreshing when trying some things for the first time and really added to the great dining experience.

The kiwi with the camembert dessert was really unique, definitely one to try if they've still got it on the menu.

Keep up the great work, can't wait to visit again.
