My family and I have eaten at Tasca Viva on several occasions and the experience has always been exemplary. The staff are engaging and helpful and the food is a delight and delicious and the menu caters to most tastes. The restaurant has a homely feel and has an indoor and outdoor aspect which fronts the square which has an... More

Buzzy place with live Flamenco dancers on Friday nights. The front opens to the street for a very inviting atmosphere. Great selection of food and wine. Food did not come all at once, which was good. Did not feel rushed.

Great selection, sometimes the food comes a little slow, but it is worth the wait if you're not in a rush!

We arrived on a Monday eve (no booking) at 6pm to a completely empty restaurant. Ordered food and drinks from extremely friendly and helpful staff and a short time later the place was jumping with people. Time between courses was good, allowing some chat time and also a chance to soak up the buzz of the restaurant. We went with... More

Nice restaurant, very busy. Very tasty food, we went for the set menu - 4 courses. Way too much food to finish. The paella is to die for! Nice selection (and recommendations) of wine to accompany your meal. Service a little slow to start, but we were'nt in a hurry, so no real problem. A must do when in the... More

Delicious coupled with amazing service. I stopped for lunch while visiting Glenelg and felt absolutely refreshed and satisfied. The food was delicious, the wine was cold and the terrific service made lunch an pleasant indulgence! Definitely worth a visit !

While the food was nice the service was extremely slow. We waited over thirty minutes for our drinks. Two from our table of four had to ask again as their drinks had been forgotten. We gave the waitress our money but had to chase her up to get the change. This took nearly five minutes to get it. Management need... More

Looking forward to a night out with friends after reading so many positive reviews but not so great. The service was either to slow at the start as my partner and I waited at least 20 minutes before being offered a drink on arrival. As for the food we went for the banquet for 2 ($44 each) which consisted of... More

This was our second visit, and we were again very happy with both the food and service. We chose the 4 course set menu so we didn't have to think about it too much and were very happy. Great selection of their dishes, and we left feeling content. Love the atmosphere.

My boyfriend and I ate here recently and had a wonderful experience. The staff were all friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about the menu. We had a couple of the tapas plates and a couple of the entree plates to share, as well as the Violet Sangria, which was wonderful. Tasca Viva has a choice of several sangrias to choose from,...
