“Great disappointment”
Reviewed June 19, 2012

The menu looked awesome, mouthwatering indeed. Went inside and were met by the noise. VERY loud music, people tried to have a conversation on top of it and we were given a table next to a loudspeaker. When asked to give us one where one could actually have a conversation, we were told that there are loudspeakers all over the place. The waiter did not pick up on the hint of it being extremely noisy. With service being lousy and it being way too loud, we left.

“Great dissapointment”
Reviewed April 1, 2012

Took my family for a tapas day out to La Tasca, and what a bad experience we had. Food was priced, portions were far to small and the dishes were cold and re-heated rather than cook from fresh. Service was just fine. I will never come again.

“A Wonderful Experience”
Reviewed February 24, 2012

We visited La Tasca in Sheffield for my wife’s birthday. It was mid-week and I was looking for something a little different when I spotted La Tasca on the Internet. The servers were very attentive and made the whole experience enjoyable. The star of the evening though was the food; we have not eaten much in the way of tapas before so I have no point of reference, but I must say that everything was cooked to perfection and very very tasty. It is so nice to be able to try, and share, lots of different dishes, in an intimate and friendly setting. We enjoyed everything we ordered and would definitely go back there again. I would recommend the experience that is la Tasca to anyone.

“Great place, despite niggles”
Reviewed February 16, 2012

Visited with my family recently - the welcome was very friendly and as it was our first visit the staff went through our menu options with us. The tapas that followed was brilliant - the staff recommended ordering in two stages so that we didn't get a table full of dishes going cold (make a note, Cubana) and that advice meant we had a nice break part way through. All the dishes were served hot as appropriate (make another note, Cubana - too many of your dishes are served lukewarm to start with). Niggles? - they ran out of patatas bravas, therefore not exactly 'unlimited', so we were offered chips instead, and no coffee was available because the machine had broken down. That said, we'd go again for the service and the standard of cooking.
