La Tasca Spanish Tapas Bar and Kitchen - Covent Garden says

Covent Garden's La Tasca is just one of a host of fabulous Spanish tapas bar-restaurants throughout the UK offering great attention to detail in both food and surroundings. La Tasca is undoubtedly the country’s preferred purveyor of tapas, popularising the Spanish way of eating throughout the nineties and noughties with a much copied formula of authentic, fresh Iberian sharing plates and lively, unpretentious atmosphere. La Tasca's Covent Garden interior is typical of the brand, combining warm, welcoming tradition and a contemporary air of light and space, the seating informal and comfortable with plenty of space for the larger group to comfortably dine together. On the menu you’ll discover a wide ranging collection of tapas dishes cooked to wholly authentic Spanish recipes and including everything from fresh fish and seafood to regional cured meats and cheeses as well as a trademark range of paellas. Meals are accompanied by hand-picked Spanish wines and Cava as well as sangria.

The evening here didn't start off too well as the restaurant didn't have any record of our booking (despite the fact that I'd booked it several days prior and had an email confirmation) so they kept us waiting about 15 minutes in order to prepare the table. We ordered a jug of sangria from the bar while we were waiting however this didn't arrive until we'd been seated at our table and had to remind them again that we'd ordered it. We also had to remind them a few times to bring water to our table. Once we'd ordered food it didn't take too long to arrive and was pretty tasty, although nothing special. It's what you would expect of a chain tapas restaurant. I would go again as you know what to expect and it's not expensive. The atmosphere isn't great, but it was a Monday night. The service was really slow for a Monday though as they weren't busy, although I suspect they were understaffed as the waitress looked frazzled!
