“Superb Spanish Goodness!”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

There was an incredible selection to choose from including lots of gluten free options so everyone in the party was happy and got what they wanted. The paella was exceptionally tasty and well worth the wait. Excellent food and aeecixe! Highly recommend!

“loyalty card”
Reviewed 26 June 2014

I have been to la tasca many times but the day I went was a busy one for me, so had my meal and drinks with a friend ,and very nice it was too. But as I stated it was one of those days. So after my meal I paid but forgot to give my la tasca card in saving me 20%. Would it not be a good idea when customers pay, to ask if they have a loyalty card? like supermarkets do . Other than that I have no problem.

“the perfect meal!”
Reviewed 26 June 2014

wonderful food, great setting, brilliant waiter (Marcus) - what more could you ask for? It was the perfect meal as far we were concerned - took our daughter for her 16th birthday with a couple of her friends and the food as ever was brilliant - loads of choice, well cooked and well presented, the bonus for us was the waiter who kept us entertained throughout and was probably one of the best waiters we've had in recent memory - he definitely went the extra mile!

“Muy bueno.”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

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.
