Excellent service from possibly the best waiter ever. Craig was friendly, efficient and has a fantastic memory as he could even remember what we ordered and where we sat on Xmas eve 2015. He ensured we had the best deal for us as there are quite a few offers on.

Restaurant La Tasca is located close to Durham University and cathedral, in the center of the Old Town. The menu proposes a broad choice of tapas, paella... I took one tapas (gambas with garlic) and a paella as main course. It was tasty and enough for me. The staff was efficient. The only negative point is the fact that the... More

We were refreshed by great selection of tapas and very good Rioja wine. Atmosphere and music made me feel like I was on holiday in Spain.

A thoroughly friendly and pleasant experience on a busy evening - we had to book our table for 4. The food was reasonable but not inspiring and not too expensive. Think of a commercialised tapas restaurant with good enough food but rather a mass produced feeling to it all.
