La Tasca Tips (5)

La Tasca: Great Tapas

La Tasca is a great chain of Spanish Tapas style restaurants in locations all over the UK. While in Manchester City Centre recently we called in to La Tasca on Deansgate.
From the colourful exterior the Restaurant initially appears to be quite small but on entering you see that it is indeed quite large as it goes back quite a long way and when making a trip downstairs to the toilet I was surprised to find an equally large Bar/nightclub basement room.

Great Decor and Spanish music really make a great atmosphere and as we called in the afternoon there was some great offers. We had the 5 Tapas for £10 offer and with a Pint of San Miguel and a Soda and lime the bill came to £14.40 for the two of us. great value for the food we had, I’m certainly looking forward to visiting again soon.


Monday – Thursday : 12:00 – 23:00
Friday – Saturday : 12:00 – 02:00
Sunday : 12:00 – 22:30

La Tasca: Great atmosphere!

Spanish atmosphere, music loud but entertaining, good service, good choice of tapas.
You have to wait a bit for the paella, but it's great!

Don't forget to go to the toilet downstairs, you may pick up a step or two when there are dancing lessons (salsa) going on in the fonction room (Sunday nights, at least)

No booking, you may have to wait between 0 to 45 minutes.

Favorite Dish Just try a bit of everything, and the wine is good (for the name ask the one like the bottles holding the candles on the tables)

La Tasca: For great authentic Spanish Tapas

La Tasca's which is on Deansgate has been going for a number of years now and is a real authentic Spanish tapas restaurant complete with Spanish staff which adds to the authenticity of the place.
it is a lovely cosy Restaurant which is softly lit as to create that perfect ambience and is very pleasing to the eye.
The food comes in small dishes and when i go if there is a group we tend to order around three dishes each and just pick at each dish and what better way to wash down with a jug of Sangria - perfect.

They also do Salsa classes which is a bargain at only £4.00 per person per lesson
hmmm! i might be tempted.

Favorite Dish The Spicy sausage -and no i cant describe it its just absolutely beautiful and you really need to try it out for yourself

Also very reasonably priced.

La Tosca: Tapas in Manchester

A beautifully decorated tapas restaurant, La Tosca was crowded (about a 20 minute wait for a table for 2) on a Sunday night in March. The wait staff all seemed to be native Spanish speakers (my husband won over our waitress by speaking to her in Spanish).

Favorite Dish Naturally, with tapas, we had a bit of many things and they were all delicious. The beer selection left a bit to be desired as they only serve bottles.

La Tasca: Cool Spanish place

This is a cool place to gather with friends. It's part of a chain. Despite the fact that, as a restaurant chain, they distribute pre-cooked food from their central site, it is pretty good.

The one in the picture is located at Deansgate, the main street in Manchester for shopping, eating or having fun. It has a basement where you can have salsa classes certain days of the week. You can wonder why salsa classes on an Spanish place? Well I had the same question... seems that in England everything related to Spanish language is "Latin" for them.

Favorite Dish Tapas... the "chorizo al tinto" ones are pretty good... along with "gambas al ajillo".
