As a person with a passion for everything spanish from the football to the food and everything in between, La Tasca is the obvious choice for somewhere to eat when in Gunwharf Quays, or Portsmouth in general.

We have visited La Tasca on many occasions and it never disappoints. We even have travelled from Southampton to Portsmouth just for the pleasure of eating there.

The food, despite not being quite authentic Spanish tapas- rather the flavours of Spain attuned for the British tongue, is simply amazing.

The servers are always helpful and quick to seat you despite being a little too quick at times are always enthusiastic and happy to help; the manager (or who I assume is the manager) has been there on several occasions getting stuck in and helping the staff.

My personal recommendations are the patatas bravas con queso (always grande!), chorizo, tortilla and of course the unforgettable pescado blanco frito with san miguel batter.

Their sangria is fantastic and there is a great choice of spanish red. The skinny sangria tastes just like normal sangria with much less calories (due to a secret ingredient- which seems to be a hint of vodka; but that is just a guess).

All in all, one of my favourite eateries on the south coast and the first consideration for a meal in Portsmouth. The 20% discount on food they're offering is just the icing on the cake.

Had a lovely meal on Monday evening with my boyfriend. Was served by a young woman and male both extremely friendly, very attentive and welcoming. Had 3 lovely well cooked dishes between the both of us. Would definitely recommend this to family and friends!

After umming and ahhing over where to eat at Gunwharf, we opted for an outside table at la Tasca. It was definitely the right decision! We had a glorious meal starting with olives and rustic garlic bread just to get the taste buds going, followed by 7 tapas including calamares and gambas gabardina, both piping hot, crispy and delicious. My wife enjoyed the pollo con salsa and langostinos whilst I tucked into the papatas bravas and my favourite, the aubergine and tomato gratin - absolutely beautiful! The view over the harbour was wonderful and the whole summery afternoon atmosphere very relaxing. Our waitress, Yasmin was charming and helpful and made my day when she explained that for June only, there was a 40% discount for La Tasca Loyalty card holders!

I went here last night with family and was surprised at how bad the food was. Most of it was edible, but didn't taste fresh I could buy ready meals tastier in the supermarket. The Tortilla was incredibly dry and obviously reheated. The Patatas Bravas overcooked, and again reheated. The mushrooms had obviously not been tasted when seasoned, as they were so salty no one could eat them. I have to say, the staff did agree to take them off the bill and the service was overall good. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere and friendly staff, but the food tastes very processed and is seriously overpriced for such a poor show. We certainly will not eat here again.
