After a full day at the beach on July 4th, we were surprised to find that a number of restaurants were closed by 8 PM. Fortunately Tasca was not. The waitress was very attentive and knowledgeable on the menu. It was obvious The kitchen staff took great pride in their food preparation. The appetizer sampler platter was mostly fried, but was big enough for 5 with lots of interesting and tasty flavors. The tapas were presented beautifully and, other than the lobster mofongo, were very good. (Especially the chicken and mushroom). The paella dishes were HUGE! The seafood paella for 2 would have been more than enough for 3.

Really enjoyed the visit and looking forward to a return.

Amazing dinner experience in the Caribbean. The food was delicious, I visited this place while a friend visited from Europe and we ordered Paella. He said it was the best Paella he ever tried AND HE'S FROM SPAIN!!!!!

Passed by this place many times during rhis statly and in the past. Looked real nice. The sign was enticing along with the lovelt balcony. Unfortunantely should have kept parsing it by. First of all you can get killed trying to cross the street to get in the place. Upon entering the interior looked promising and the chef and staff professional. The food smelled good and the menu looked interesting. We were told by the waitress that she would be back to take a drink order and answerrl any questions. After 15 minutes we looked at each other and couldnt help but notice there was only one waitress who was running around like crazy. Making drinks...taking orders...bringing food....getting supplies...even the chef came out and helped with an order. We tried to be a little patient as any place can have staff not show up or leave early ir whatever.. But what did it for us was while this poor waitress was working like crazy and trying to do the job of 4 people the owner was walking around with a wine glass in one hand, cell phone in the other, chatting tourist info instrad of helping out with his own staff shortage. We even tried the evil stare at him to get him to maybe bring us a or something. No dice. We got up and left and couldnt wait to write this review. My suggestion......cross the street carefully and burn rubber.....

Great food, wonderful service! We enjoyed some delicious tapas before dinner, and though it had limited options, the kids liked the Children's Menu. Dinner was great and the desert was delicious!

Since the moment we sat in front of the bay view, and the nice lady came to our table, we were blessed. When the food arrived we were absolutely satisfied +. The paella is delicious and served 3 or 4. The Pollo a la Gallega with parmesano risotto amazing.

If unsure, give it a try. Ask the servers for what you want, they will spoil you with expedite service and surprising details.
