We went to La Tasca for Valentines lunch as we thought we could have a nice leisurely Spanish Tapas style lunch - How wrong we were!! The food was completely tasteless and we couldn't wait to get out. The only thing that tasted authentic was the Sangria. The Paella looked like Batchelors Golden savoury rice and tasted the same, the Gabas al pil pil which is supposed to taste of garlic and chilli and still be spiting when it arrives on the table tasted of neither and the oil was as still if...

I'm a bit of a fan of La Tasca. I have eaten in a few branches. The one in the Trafford Centre in Manchester is nice because you enter the restaurant and you no longer feel like you are in a large shopping mall. I've had a few good meals in the one on Deansgate, Manchester as well. This branch can be pretty busy on Saturday nights though as they don't (or at least they didn't last time I went) accept bookings and people also go there for a drink as well as to eat. I have also visited the... (read more)

We went to La Tasca with a 50% off voucher and thank goodness we did, there is no way I would have paid full price.
Before I even get on to the food we were asked to move table twice, as friendly as our waiter was, being asked to move for the second time just as your food arrives is seriously poor effort.
Unappetising bread, tiny portions (yes I know its tapas but still...) TERRIBLE prawns, DRY chicken and HUGE salt crystals sprinkled far too liberally over all dishes.

The food was tepid, no plates were offered and we had to chase up extra drinks and bill. Server apologised and said he should have laid table before we sat and as we had hardly eaten anything offered a 20% discount. Shame as it looks so inviting but we would not venture in again.

This restaurant was among the low points of my visit to the east coast. If I was more familiar with the area, I'd recommend a better place for ethnic food... Actually, even without knowing the area, I can still do that: Taco Bell. Though they might lose out in the cleanliness aspect. (read more)

As a local of Fulham, I'd always wanted to eat in this lovely bit of Fulham that La Tasca occupies.
Unfortunately, they did not have the choice of drinks that were on the menu - the beer choice was extremely limited - and the waitress was unsure whether the wine we ordered was available but offered to get us any Rose!
We ordered Chorizo in red wine and chicken skewers as a starter. I thought the Chorizo in red wine was disappointing, both the chorizo and the sauce were beyond bland. The... (read more)

We could not fault the Chef's Tapas Selection at La Tasca and thoroughly enjoyed our visit ! We are shortly due to visit the restaurant in Birmingham for a friend's Birthday Celebration. We look forward to experiencing that. A pleasant restaurant and good to visit with friends. (read more)

We have been twice to the Windsor branch and enjoyed our meals, the food was a little on the slow side but dishes were good or great so made up for it. We found it quite hard to get the waiters / resses attention at times but I assumed they were busy in the kitchen..shame as really fancied a 2nd glass of wine last time! Amazing how they appear when you stand up to leave though!!
The battered prawns are gorgeous and fluffy and food has always been piping hot.
Definitely one of the better... (read more)
