Review of La Tasca Edinburgh

We had lunch at La Tasca Edinburgh in South Charlotte Street (just off Princes Street at the Haymarket end) in May 2010.  There’s some outdoor seating on the pavement at the front but it’s too close to the road for my liking.

The interior is a bit contrived but nevertheless attractive as it’s bright and colourful.  It was pretty quiet when we were there for Sunday lunch.  There were two staff on duty, both of whom were attentive and enthusiastic.

I had a 50% off “Tapas to Share” voucher.  We  ordered 10 dishes, the full price would have been £44 but with the voucher we paid £22.  The quality and flavour of the food was very good but the servings are quite small, so you did need that number of dishes to feel that you’d eaten a decent meal.  I wouldn’t have been prepared to pay the full price for what we ate .I wish that La Tasca would adopt the Spanish custom of serving bread with their meals.

La Tasca run various promotions so it’s worth checking them out before you go.  I’ve seen an evening offer running Sunday to Tuesday 5pm  – 9pm with an all you can eat menu for £10 a person and a 5 Tapas for £10 lunchtime offer (which I’ve sampled at La Tasca Belfast) but dishes such as prawns or salmon are not featured on these menus.

In summary if you eat at La Tasca Edinburgh on a fixed price menu or have a promotional voucher, you can have a very tasty meal at a reasonable price in pleasant surroundings.
