We stumbled across this place whilst looking for a cocktail bar but as soon as we saw/smelt the tapas being served to the table next to us, we had to order some food too! The cocktails were delicious and the service was very quick. We ordered several different tapas and they were all delicious and very good value. I couldn't... More

Modern place, probably reflects Spanish bars of the 20th century rather than a traditional place, but excellent food, good, friendly service.

I have been to this bar a few times since returning to Cambridge a little older, not necessarily wiser, than in previous times. Most bars and clubs especially have a very young feel which can make a 30something feel like Gandalf the Grey. However, I find that La Raza has a good combination of music and decent cocktails with a... More

Had a great evening meal at La Raza to celebrate the New Year. The service was fantastic - cocktails were lovely and came very fast. While waiting for food we were given bread/dips/olives. Food was delicious - would recommend the mixed paella. Overall, had a lovely night.

Fantastic night at La Raza. Always fantastic in the club. Always the best DJ as well..... Pete is a star. Excellent choice of music. Drinks are not outrageously priced, which is a blessing. Great night out.

Went in the early evening with my teenage daughter and son, which meant we had to leave by 21.00 as La Raza turns into a club. Although it was initially almost empty, the food more than compensated for the quiet atmosphere, which warmed up as 21.00 hours approached. We enjoyed some very tasty tapas and an absolutely wonderful chicken and... More

Good location. Good food and good service although not very professional but this seems to be normal in Cambridge.

We held our annual Cambridge Sherry Club Review at La Raza last weekend; they were able to accommodate a very large group of sherry experts and semi-amateurs alike in the beautiful, spacious area downstairs. We were placed alongside non-sherry drinkers but that didn't seem to cause the typical issues one normally sees when that happens, in fact everbody seemed to... More
