Visited for dinner. Waitresses explained menu very clearly and patient with my many questions! Relaxed decor and atmosphere. The tapas we had was a very small serve for sharing, but delicious (Piquillo pepper with goats’ cheese). Larger sharing dishes delicious; grilled prawns, lamb salad (the...lamb was slightly over cooked but it was flavoursome), potatoes bravas. A smaller serve of potatoes for 2 people would have been more appropriate. Wine good. Price good, especially with Entertainment Book voucher ($74, for 1 small tapas, 3 larger serves, 2 glasses wine and 2 coffees). Will return.More

Missed half our order. It just never arrived. Other half of our party had theirs and said it was nice. The food we did get was good. Seemed too intent serving large groups that had arrived after us. Had to point out to staff their...error. Manager gave us 10 % off bill which amounted to about 13 dollars. Poor service. Will not be attending again.More

As per our previous visits Tasca Viva is outstanding. A wide variety of choices and everything we selected was great. Well sized plates to share.

Ordered the Grand menu offering starters, mains and desserts only to be told the menu wasn’t really clear and we would have to order desert separately. Not great at all. Therefore cost more than was reasonable and was pretty average. Not impressed.

Always a pleasure to grab a couple of beers and tapas here. Trio of dips and pita bread good for starters followed by several skewers of lamb and hot potato chips!

Ate here on a busy sunday night. Unfortunately for us they had a large booking inside the restaurant and had no time or room in kitchen to make paella, which was what we were hoping to try. We chose 3 tapas dishes to share and...they were good.Tried their Sangria for my drink but wasnt impressed, nothing like any i had in spain !! Service was very good even though they were busy.More

With the variety and quality of restaurants available in the Glenelg area, I would absolutely give this restaurant a miss - it is the worst dining experience I have ever had. There is a lot of ambiguity on the pricing of their dishes - we...checked with two waitresses to ensure that we had the correct understanding for the pricing of the Tapas selection. However, when we went to pay they tried to charge us double the amount for two people. The manager admitted that the pricing is misleading yet refused to alter the price to what was originally explained to us. While the food was nice, it definitely was not worth the quality or quantity for what we paid. In comparison, somewhere like the Marina would have been better value. Lying to customers and not even being able to negotiate or take responsibility when a mistake has been made is very poor customer service. In addition, the pricing issue we had is unethical from a business operation standpoint. Do not waste your time or money here.More

Stick to tapas by your reviews as breakfast was shocking, stale bread and tasteless veggies was a let down, don’t know why open for breakfast if you can’t serve decent food, definitely miss this place
