Housed within the vibrant shopping centre, La Tasca Lakeside is a great place to enjoy delicious Spanish tapas and sangria. Head to the terrace to enjoy a relaxing al fresco meal with a glass of wine, or unwind with a drink in the buzzing bar area.

Since the first La Tasca restaurant opened in 1993, the menu has won a string of awards, and stays committed to showcasing the finest available ingredients and bold, natural flavours. Headed by the signature tapas range, choose from a range of colourful paellas, tender slow-cooked meats and sharing platters piled high with artisan meats, cheeses and breads. Sweet creations include Spanish-style gelato, and sharing churros with gooey chocolate sauce.

Complementing the food offerings, the La Tasca drinks list is filled with fine Spanish wines, summery fruit-filled sangrias and traditional sherries. A favourite with families, La Tasca in Essex also offers a range of miniature tapas especially for children.

Immersed in the buzz of this retail spot, La Tasca a Thurrock Lakeside Shopping Centre is a 5-minute drive from Chafford Hundred Station.

    The restaurant wasn't aware of the offer we had chosen. We got offered the usual restaurant menu. The food had to be sent back twice, first because it wasn't what we ordered and for a second time because it was freezing cold. We would have saved money if we actually paid the bill price rather than the deal offered.

    We have been coming to this restaurant for a long time now and this is probably the worst meal we have ever had. we ordered bread with olive oil to start with and when it came their were only three pieces of bread between two of us, we normally get a lot more than this. We both had a different Paella for main course. We have had this here on many occasions but I wouldn't call what we had Paella. For a start the portion size was so small that it was more like a starter and we felt like we hadn't eaten after the meal. My Paella was swimming in oil, the chorizo was really tough and chewy and the green beans were raw. My partners Paella had a lot of water in it, a quarter of the rice came in lumps and was plain with no flavouring on it and his green beans were also raw. We didn't bother with desert as we had had enough by then. To top it all we were told that they were not accepting the loyalty cards either. I do not know if their is a new chef or because it was new years eve but a Sainsburys Paella ready meal is better than what we got. We certainly wont be going back.

    Great Christmas menu plenty of food loved the spinach and goats cheese... The desert churros and chocolate was delicious and the Christmas cocktail was the perfect drink.

    They did not have a record of my booking. It took 40 minutes to be seated and served and it was only because I flagged a waitress down. The food though was incredible and cheap and once they took our order it was very quick. They did however miss a dish which we were charged for. I think they may have been understaffed, if not they needed more staff.

    Sitting outside in the sunshine made it feel like we were abroad on holiday. Food very good and I could not fault the service as staff were very friendly and so helpful.

    We had a very good visit to LA Tasca for Mothers Day. Very busy when we arrived, shown to table promptly, given enough time to sit and read the menus, served drinks, then the orders taken considering the amount of dishes ordered arrived promt, hot, I picked the restaurant because my wife is Gluten Free, Lot's of choice, great service,
