“Unauthentic fast food tapas”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2012

Do yourself a favour walk straight past La Tasca - it's rubbish, flavourless & most certainly microwaved food - & 5 minutes up the road to one of the finest authentic Spanish tapas bars you'll ever likely to step foot in & for a very similar price as La Tasca.

“Too oily”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2012

I usually enjoy Spanish food, however the tapas dishes I ate here were too oily and too expensive for the small portions.

“Why is everything so salty?”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2012

Went around 6 pm. The place was empty and yet was shown a table near where all the cutlery was kept. Not a nice start. Ordered a paella. Told it would take 25 mins. Waitress said reason was because they have to cook it. Knowing how these restaurants work i was skeptical that they did not just defrost the main ingredients which were pre packaged frozen.

A small family arrived. They were friends of the waitress and that was the end of any attention that was given to me. The chicken paella arrived, well presented in a sizzling pan. Yes it was defrosted stuff and the 30 mins was to get the pan hot and sizzling. The paella was just a salt fest. They emptied the whole salt shaker it seems. Unedible.

Desert of icecream was just 2 scoops in a plate. No attempt at presentation or garnish.

Will i go there again. Do you have to ask.
