Decided to stop in as very much enjoy Tapas. The meals were fine but not exceptional. Appreciating it is Auckland, they were reasonably expensive. We decided to share the p Paella as recommended but weren't blown away.

We had lunch here yesterday. Whilst only one of the three meals ordered was truly Spanish we had no complaints as the food was fresh and delicious. The chicken wrap was juicy and tasty with a nice toasted twist. Service was efficient and friendly.More

Food OK, a little expensive... place devoid of anything Spanish (especially the chefs) and definately NOT a Spanish Tapas Bar, not saying it's a bad place, but if there was as enforceable "Trade Descriptions Act", then this place would be in breach.

The place was packed when we visited on a Sunday night. The restaurant is decorated with many Spanish posters etc and has a good vibe. The waiting staff were friendly and helpful. Unfortunately the food was a disappointment. The salad we ordered had no dressing...More

What a f### up... Ordered lunch to enjoy outside, couple of older turks who look to be affiliated with the place light up cigarettes and spoil the outside atmosphere. We go inside. I ordered a drink and meals. One meal turns up other was forgotten...More

Enjoyed a pleasant lunch at Tasca. The food, presentation and service was spot on. The Cafe is obviously popular judging by the number of lunch time diners who drifted in while we were enjoying our lunch. Their advertised Summer menus looked inviting and worth a...More
