We randomly selected this café for lunch. The atmosphere is welcoming and exudes an exotic ambience with quirky décor. We were welcomed and viewed the menu before deciding to remain. The meals were reasonably priced. My friend selected pasta and meatballs. This was a very large meal so recommend choosing the small as there was sufficient for two meals in... More

We've been here a few times and we've never been disappointed. It's a relaxed, lively atmosphere, but not too loud. The menu has plenty to offer, with a good range of Spanish and Spanish-related dishes. Last night we had the lamb shoulder which was tender and tasty, and the aubergine split was delicious. The wait staff were relaxed and charming,... More

Whilst we enjoyed the meal the waiter we had and other staff were some of the most abrupt and unfriendly I have ever experienced. The waitress cleared our plates away before we had even finished and totally ignored our comments. No smiles, no communication, lots of pressure to choose in a hurry. Clearly customers are a nuisance in this restaurant.... More

We were up in Auckland for the weekend and wanted to try something a little different and ended up as Tasca for lunch. The brunch + lunch menu was interesting with a lot of really appetising choices, but we felt the food did not live up to our expectations. Boring and hardly the best choice in a Spanish restaurant I... More

Lovely evening dining outside. Party all enjoyed the food. Our waiter took in good spirit the advice of one of our party who had worked many years ago in a restaurant in Spain. Recommend highly for friendly staff and food.

We really enjoyed this place for lunch. The chicken is halal and they were very accommodating to our needs. We ordered the Spaniard which was delicious and the kumru burger. I asked for the chicken in the burger instead of the chorizo sausage, they were happy to do the substitution. We also had a mocha which I thoroughly enjoyed. Their... More

The Tapas were excellent, have several and share as your main. We had two tapas shared and a main each and it was plenty if not too much. I had a chicken main, it was a little too salty for me, but I had cut back on salt so other maynot notice.

Slow service and very poor quality food, felt like Spanish macca's. Nice ambience but overall a really disappointing experience. Only had 3 tapas and then left.

Whether a Single diner or a Group of friends Tasca is a welcoming restaurant for all: Great atmosphere, Excellent food, Value for money ... I have been here in a large group, a small party and on my own ... always a great time. I will be back.
