Mainly let down by the server not accepting the 25% reward/reduction we had printed off at the end of September for our first visit claiming that there had been a change of management and the discount could not be honoured. Being typically British we put up with this but on return research on the web shows no change of ownership... More

Walked in New Year's Eve around 6 pm. We sat at a high top table in the bar. Great service, great meal. Hubby ordered a beet and goat cheese salad to start and I had butternut squash soup. We then shared 4 tapas, one vegetable stuffed pasta, shrimp in spicy garlic butter, fried potatoes and asparagus with a mushroom relish.... More

I cannot say enough about this restaurant. I did some research before traveling to Old Town (Alexandria) and knew that I wanted to attend a flamenco performance on Wednesday night. I am so glad that I made a reservation - because we had front row seats for this amazing show. The dancers, guitar player and singer were phenomenal. I caught... More

We actually went for Christmas Eve 2015. My husband is from Spain and he was impressed with the authenticity of the Spanish tapas. We had a very nice leisurely evening not being rushed out the door.

Great food in a great location. We walked up and down King st and after we sat to have delicious tapas at this restaurant. The patatas bravas are a must (potatoes). The sangria was on brunch happy hour for $2. That is only on the weekends. I loved it. Small portions with a big taste!!!! I will return.

Our party of four chose this location based on the menu items and reviews. The location is easy to find and we did not have to wait to be seated. The decor and atmosphere are nice and with the exception of the ceiling vents, everything appeared to be clean. Although our order was taken in a timely fashion, it took... More

La Tasca never disappoints, especially love the brunch. The sangria and tapas are always excellent and we always have great service. My fiancé and I were recently in Spain and still think that La Tasca's paella is one of the absolute bests we have ever tried! Highly recommend this restaurant!!

Five of us older travelers collectively considered this to be a restaurant better suited to a more youthful group , though we all enjoyed our meal .Two had steak which could have been more tender for the price of 23.00 , though tasted good . Over all we felt a tad overpriced but not excessively , since our waiter seemed... More
