La Tasca first opened its doors in 1993, with founder Neil Gatt releasing the smell of delicious Spanish tapas to the North West city of Manchester. From that first single restaurant over 20 years ago, La Tasca has now grown to a chain of over 40 outlets up and down the United Kingdom. From Edinburgh to Exeter, from Cardiff to Cambridge, from London to Leeds - you are never too far from a few servings of La Tasca tapas.
The La Tasca chain of restaurants was sold to the Laurel Pub Company for over £120 million in 2007 but has since returned to a standalone company as La Tasca Holdings Ltd. The firm also trades in the United States, branded as La Tasca Kitchens.
