“Love it.”
Reviewed January 9, 2014

We always treat ourselves to LaTasca when we can. It is a bit pricey but you really do get what you pay for. We were seated straight away and couldn't have asked for better service. The fact that we had 40% loyalty card discount really did help.

“Nice Food and Friendly Staff”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

Popped in last week for lunch and thoroughly enjoyed it. Right on the waterfront. (tip - there is an upstairs section reached either by the stairs inside or an escalator outside with much better views over the harbour).
There is a wide selection of food from various regions of Spain and the menu explains where each dish comes from. As in any tapas bar you can order as much or as little as you want and no-one minds. It was all very informal and relaxing.
We got chatting to a Spanish member of staff (he may even have been the owner) and when he brought the bill he had knocked off the price of my last pint. Gracias senior.

“Date Night Fave”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

There is something about sharing tapas that makes date night that bit more special, this would be our second visit to this establishment. We have been to basingstoke as well but the food there was disappointing compared to gunwharf, it may have been what we selected, we certainly made sure we avoided the ones we didnt like though upon visiting this one.
We booked a table for 6pm on a Saturday and although busy it wasnt out of the ordinary, we were seated upstairs overlooking the harbour which was lovely and our waiter for the evening was very attentive, one thing I really liked was when he was taking our order he bent down to hear us clearly and one item we were unsure about he put his recommendation on it, something as small as that really helps make the evening.
The food we had was all brilliant, every bowl was cleared, my favourite was the meatballs but the chicken and chorizo paella was also a stand out dish. I would recommend these for any visit!
I have no complaints about this place at all, I was going to give it a four star but I thought "what was wrong with it?" and I couldnt think of anything, it was all perfect!

“Excellent Tapas, excellent service, great location”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

We use this restaurant whenever we are in the area. The tapas is always first rate, the staff are friendly and helpful, the service is great. We enjoying eating outside when the weather permits and the view over the harbour is a real bonus. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys spanish food.
