“Exquisite Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2013

My wife and I enjoyed a lovely meal at La Tama. The food was was hot, well presented, tasted wonderful and resonably priced. The atmosphere was great, I noticed there were some ex footballers there (won't mention names). We pass LaTama all the time and have never noticed it. I think it's one of those hidden gems as they say. All good we will be back, highly recommeded if you know what great food should taste like! Thank you La Tama!

“Need to catch up with the times.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2013

Went recently with my partner. There was just the two of us there on a Saturday night which felt very awkward. If we didn't actually feel sorry for the owners, we would probably have left. I can only assume that they do have busier nights as the restaurant has been there for years.

The owners were very friendly and the service was good but the place, although cosy, is very old fashioned. There was a lack of choice of drinks at the bar and the menu was VERY overpriced for the quality and choice of food. The food was hot and I mean HOT! You shouldn't have to burn your fingers and wait for your food to cool down before enjoying it.

Hopefully they'll update the place and the menu as it's in a good location and should be much busier.

“Amazing food, wonderfully relaxed atmosphere, excellent service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2013

My husband and I ate at La Tama recently on a Saturday evening, the food was absolutely perfect and wonderfully presented on nice hot plates! The service was tentative and the atmosphere very relaxed and intimate. Would definitely recommend this restaurante to anyone who enjoys excellent food and a slow-paced relaxing evening

“Valentines dinner for 2!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

A lovely experience from being welcomed at the door by Jean right the way through the friendly service with gentle humour once they know you're on their wave length!
Jean and Angeline will be happy to make recommendations and and ensure you're happy right the way through without being intrusive! Oh and make sure you try the Chef's Ainsworth Tart...its very naughty! :)

Thank you guys!

“Our favourite place to go”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2013

We have been visiting La Tama for over 5 years and it is our favourite place to eat, chill out, and enjoy excellent food. The reastaurant is run by a lovely couple (Jean and Angeline) who are always pleased to see you and make you feel most welcome, with recommendations for whatever may be especially good on the day's specials.

Our latest visit was no exception. The mushrooms were mouth watering, the sea bass tender and tasty, and the sweets (all home made) were enough to tempt us to indulge guiltily! It is difficult to fault this hidden gem of a place - every visit tempts us back for more.
