My fiance and I went here on the recommendation of a friend. It was everything we'd been hoping for and more. I studied in Spain in 2003 and I still recall the fabulous tapas there. This place brought back so many happy memories.
We had a Galician-inspired octopus dish first that was our favorite. The other two dishes were lovely too (salmon bites and prawns) but the sauce and preparation for the octopus was truly outstanding. We each had a glass of the house white wine and it was good too. The dessert was amazing though, a creme de Catalan. Both of us were extremely happy with our meal and with the wonderful service. Even though a load of folks came through the door not long after we sat down, we were not ignored. Great experience!

After travelling 17 days in Spain, my wife and I frequently ate tapas all over Spain. We became addicted.

When I found out there was an authentic tapas restaurant in Banos, I had to check it out.

I met the owner, Spanish born and bred. Although he was very fluent in English and German, he spoke to me in Spanish (which I appreciated very much).

I ordered the chicken croquettes, which rivaled any croquettes I had in Spain. They were simply to die for. I also ordered the Cachopos (breaded sirloin filets stuffed with Serrano ham and mature cheese.) Again, a great choice, a great dish.

My only regret was that La Tasca was only open during the weekends. Que lastima!

Un restaurante muy bueno. Muchísimas gracias!

If you like Paella, this is the place to come. Tip: must order 1 hour in advance. Just give Pepe a call and he will have your table and Paella ready when you arrive. Bring your appetite! It was more than 2 of us could finish, but great for left overs the next day. They open at 6:30pm. The restaurant is very small with quaint friendly atmosphere. Thanks to Pepe and his wife!
