“La Tasca”

Written on: 08/08/2012 by Kumar_Chauhan (5 reviews written)

My girlfriend and I have been going to La Tasca now for a couple of years and overall our experience has not been that bad. The food has been acceptable without ever being extraordinary. My main complaint is that I’m not sure how much of their food is freshly made on site, I get the feeling many things are prepack and just heated up at the different restaurants (no really in keeping with the whole fresh Spanish tone). You may ask if this was my opinion then why did I keep going back, well… Read Full Review

“How do La Tasca continue to get away with it?”

Written on: 22/05/2012 by pbrodger (1 review written)

We love Spanish food, and so were looking forward to La Tasca. Our first foray was to Canary Wharf a couple of years ago, where even basics like Tortilla and chorizo were very poor and barely edible. The experience was so bad in fact, that we complained via the website. We did, in fairness, get a call from the branch manager, who was apologetic but philosophical about the quality of the food "it's a chain, what can you expect?" was her attitude. She offered me vouchers which she suggested we… Read Full Review

“Horrible experience!”

Written on: 24/02/2012

We have chosen this restaurant as we really wanted to eat some tasty Spanish food...but we were wrong. We started with some tapas and I discovered you can buy the exact same thing from Tesco for 2£..which is probably what they do..put everything on a plate, olive oil on top..and that is it.. client served. Than we ordered paella for 3...absolutely disgusting.. we received a huge pan of horrible rice with a tomato sauce, 3 prawns and 6 mussels on top..the taste was awful. I will never go to… Read Full Review

“Rip off Paella”

Written on: 04/02/2012 by anniebell2010 (1 review written)

We were a group of 9 celebrating a birthday. 6 of our party went for the party menu at 15.00 per head. The other 3 wanted the single paella at 9.95. The party meals came out well ahead of our meals. When the paella arrived, we were very dissappointed. Rather then the 3 single paellas we were expecting and had ordered. We got a pan of paella. When we questioned the waitress we were told it was paella for 3! This was outragous, yes there was enough rice for 3 BUT only 3 prawns and of the 6… Read Full Review

“Very poor”

Written on: 22/01/2012 by Paul25491 (1 review written)

Went with some friends and luckily we found it all amusing as service was poor and food felt mass market rather than fresh despite waiting a long tome for it. They forgot to bring some dishes and also twice brought the wrong drinks. No real atmosphere in there and place needs some serious investment. Not good … Read Full Review

“Bad start to an 18th Birthday”

Written on: 17/10/2011 by Nazzo (1 review written)

RUDE service. After two out of ten people failed to give ID (When they weren't even drinking) the waitress went to the manager, and he disgustingly approached the table and gathered our attention by clapping his hands and barking out 'NO ID NO DRINKS' It was really not needed. He even separated the table from those who weren't drinking Throughout the whole night he eyed us. Our drink glasses remained empty, not once did the waitress ask us if our meal was OK, or if we wanted more drinks, we had… Read Full Review

“Really enjoyable”

Written on: 25/09/2011

The reviews on this site seem quite harsh. I had my first visit to La Tasca last week and I was very impressed. The staff were actually Spanish and very friendly. The restaurant had a nice atmosphere. As part of a group of 16 people I wasn't sure we'd have enough food but there was plenty for all and everyone went home very full. I would definitely recommend to a friend. The only possible downside could be the price, maybe not somewhere to visit often, or look out for any deals they may have… Read Full Review

“Fantastic”

Written on: 05/09/2011

I think the negative reviewers just don't like tapas. La Tasca is brilliant, it can be as cheap or expensive as you want it to be. Every wednesday and Sunday there is usually 6 tapas for £10.95.. had this and I was stuffed! I usually get four tapas, using their 2 for 1 vouchers, which are always available (google search it). The food is great and freshly prepared. … Read Full Review

“I wish I'd read the reviews before booking. ”

Written on: 10/04/2011

I wish I'd read the reviews before booking.

Atmosphere - lively and relaxed and I thought the decor was OK too.

Service - amateur at best. No organisation or allocation of staff to tables. No sign of a manager overseeing the "team" only one of whom appeared to be working.

Food - Out of a packet into the microwave or deep fat fryer. Bland, warm not hot and of the poorest quality. Of special note were the "Tiger Prawns". 6 of the smallest prawns that I have ever seen. Clearly not as described… Read Full Review

“My partner and I took our daughter here today and I...”

Written on: 06/03/2011 by JTBUK (1 review written)

My partner and I took our daughter here today and I have to say the place is shambolic. We were using our Tastecard which took a 'tiny' bit of sting out the experience, in that we only had to pay for 50% of PART of our order. Drinks and everything we ordered that was not on the 'Tapas to Share' menu were charged at standard prices. The manager (I use this term very loosely indeed) showed us to our table and was very rude in how he quickly explained the terms of using a tastecard, in a voice… Read Full Review

“Wednesday, in La Tasca Leeds: ”

Written on: 21/11/2010

Wednesday, in La Tasca Leeds:
Awful! We were 3 mins late, which I apologised for. The Maitre d' pointed at our table (we were not escorted) and said he was running late anyway. to cut a long story you were very busy (but this should be expected with the amount of offers in place) and despite getting the attention of 3 waiters we did not have anyone take our drinks order until 7.50 (45 mins after arrival) we also ordered food. This arrived at 8.45. We jokingly asked the waiter if we could… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/11/2010

My partner and I chose the £12 for 2 lunch deal. Lets just say I would not even give this food to my dog. We had 5 selections of Tapas. Everything was heated in a microwave it was not done fresh.The worst of it was the so called Chorizos floating in red wine. The chorizos were inedible we both had a piece and quicly put this dish to the side i could not even swallow it. They were definately not spanish! The chicken and mushrooms were re-heated and luke warm though the taste wasnt too bad. We… Read Full Review

Chorizo in red wine (yes, floating), is typically Spanish, so it is authentic.

Written on: 06/11/2010

Appalling food. A range of greasy deep fried items covered in the same bland tomato sauce. Portion size was very small which added to the feeling of being ripped off. Along with the tapas we ordered a paella which was slightly less bland but more disgusting. The prawns in it had clearly been placed in frozen and despite being burnt on the outside, were barely defrosted on the inside. The one I ate tasted like the bottom of an old freezer and frankly I was concerned for my health.

Service was… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/09/2010

Dissapointed is not the word!.... La Tasca has gone 'down hill' big time. I used to eat here a lot - bringing family and friends to a nice social event, never again.It seems the prices have shot up, and the quality of the food diminished. Obviously the chain has lost the plot - thinking about profits rather than quality. The food was luke warm,and so was the salad! the chicken was tough and the service was average. Don't get me wrong, I don't like to be 'kiss arsed' by my waiter/waitress… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/08/2010

I went to la tasca, for what I thought was a good value for money lunch deal. I have to say I was shocked at the quality of food. None of it appears to be cooked fresh. In fact I am certain that all dishes are ordered in pre-prepared and bunged in a microwave to serve. Shocking! I've simply nothing good to say about the food. Mcdonalds offers better quality. The service was good however, but this probably has more to do with the fact that we were the only people in the restaurant at the time… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/07/2010

I am a big fan of tapas and have never been so disappointed with a restaurant. This is the second time I have been to a La Tasca (it was not my choice to go again but an engagement that I couldn't avoid) and I had hoped that my first miserable experience was a one-off but unfortunately not. The food was bland, uninteresting and hugely overpriced for what we were presented with. I don't even know how it is possible to remove so much flavour from chorizo. The service was slow and we had to remind… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/07/2010

Tremendously disappointing experience. We were sat at our table with one menu between four of us then faced an extended wait for drinks. The wine at £18 a bottle was vile. The food came in ridiculously small portions that were invariably bland, oily and tasted the same. We then ordered pudding and waited 45 minutes for it to arrive. Unfortunately, only three of us got what we'd ordered. No apology from the waiter, he just trotted off with the pudding and reappeared five minutes later with… Read Full Review
