Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

As we enjoy Tapas we decided to have an evening meal here. We thought that Paella was on the menu, as per their web site, but sadly not. There was a good choice of Tapas, and we had a nice selection which we all enjoyed...very much. The staff were moving table around to facilitate those just have drinks, it’s was quite interesting seeing the tables being moved around (very sturdy fold up ones). The staff were attentive and helpful. The venue wasn’t overly big, but it was pleasant. We would return if we were in Cambridge again.More

We went to this tapas bar for lunch and enjoyed sitting outside on an attractive pedestrianised side street. All the dishes were good, we particularly enjoyed the air dried beef. The service was very efficient and the staff very friendly.

Early afternoon, table in the basement. Staff were friendly and efficient. Food was excellent. Two dishes and a side recommended. Found this to be just about right, but no room for dessert! Nice atmosphere. Outside tables available, but rain clouds put us off this option....Hope we get to dine at La Raza again.More

A 'real' Spanish restaurant? Not really ... Spanish are just some names on the menu and that's it... The food is very much english, the service is english, it is a fact, that the cook is able to serve 'spanish' food that tastes real english...and lacking all the ingredients which make the spanish food spanish. Well, they just do not have this ingredients, they save on 'ajo' = garlic for the 'Gambas' (crevettes) as they save on the portion sizes ... But if you don't know the spanish way of preparing food ... just go there anyway... because all of this 'spanish' restaurants are cooking in the way .. english...More

Nice tapas. Friendly and helpful staff. Quick service, reasonably priced and a good selection of drinks. It was a nice lunch to catch up with friends. It's just a shame they've taken the paella off the menu. But will definitely go again.

Nice cosy place for some lunch, the cocktails were good quality as well. The service was a little slow but the staff were friendly. We just had a few tapas dishes and they were all tasty. I would go back again and try other dishes...and cocktails. TIP The bill comes with a service charge and it is quite a lot so ask them to remove it. We gave the waitress cash tip.More

We made sure that we visited on a sunny rain free day so that we could sit outside on the street. A pleasant experience on Rose Crescent under an umbrella watching the world go by. Not so attractive inside in the basement. Service was prompt,...friendly and efficient. Tapas were of a reasonable size and tasty. We liked the fig cheese dish in particular. There is a service charge of 10% which we were happy to pay. One is encouraged to leave a further tip, we didn't. Sadly the waiting staff probably do not get any of the charge. If I come again, I will ask for the service charge to be removed, and leave a tip in cash. Important to carry cash just for this reasonMore

Family lunch, no booking. This restaurant has tables on a pretty street and also downstairs/inside where we were greeted by polite and friendly staff. However service was a bit on the slow side. The menu choices are adequate and the food was nice and well...presented - although perhaps the flavours in the spicier dishes were slightly overwhelmed by heat. We did not choose a Paella but this looked very good. Music in the venue was a bit loud, toilets definitely need attention. Venue gave us the impression of being a bit "tired". The place has good potential, could be really good with not much more effort. Ambience 2/5 Food 3/5 Service 3/5 Drinks 4/5More

Stopped for tapas whilst shopping in Cambridge. Outdoor seating is lovely, food was good and the service was fine. However due to this place being quite a lively night scene the toilets need some work!

We absolutely loved our lunch here. The fresh figs, baked with goats cheese, balsamic and honey was amazing. The padron peppers were delicious and the salad with crispy serrano ham, blue cheese, tomato & red onion was perfect. We enjoyed a nice jug of sangria...and exceptional service.More

Visited La Raza for a cocktail making class for a friends Hen Do - and can not recommend them enough. We had an amazing cocktail maestro, called Billy who was absolutely amazing and taught us so much about what we were making. We were also...served lovely snacks and a welcome drink, which was such a wonderful touch. Thank you to Billy and La Raza for an amazing class! Can not recommend them enough.More

About twenty minutes. No idea about music - you will have to contact the club for that one
