4th Aug 2001

Not a bad day today, Marg and I managed to get most of the gardening chores done and it looked like there was still some good weather left for the evening, so we decided on a jaunt to Chester - perhaps a walk alongthe river and a meal?

By the time we got there, it was chucking it dowm, so I took the oppportunity of "kerb crawling" round the town to get my bearings. We parked up for a few minutes alongside the river, where the tour boats moor, and waited a few minutes until the weather cleared. It turned out quite a pleasant evening, but by then we had gone off the idea of a full-blown restaurant meal.

Luckily, we had "crawled" past a few small restaurants, and were parked fairly near to them, so we walked along and perused the menus. Next time, we'll go for a full meal, but this time, La Tasca fitted the bill nicely - we both saw from the menu that we could be satisfied with a couple of tapas, we'd both been to a "La Tasca" before (see our main review ), and so we popped in.

At just after seven pm, the place was buzzing, but there was still room for us. A few minutes later and we would have had to have waited some forty minutes for a table!

Families, couples and parties formed a pleasant mix, and the atmosphere was lively and fairly cosmopolitan.

I selected Patatas Pobre and Cordero Salsa, Marg went for Patatas Bravas and Brochetta Pollo.

A San Miguel for me and a Pernod for Marg lubricated us until my dish of mixed olives, and a basket of bread arrived.

Nice olives, pity about the quality of the olive oil they were presented in - serving these in a better flavoured oil would have made a difference.

Marg preferred my Patatas Pobre to her Bravas, and so we swapped. I found both acceptable, but thought the Bravas sauce was a little too thinly flavoured, with paprika too much to the fore.

Marg enjoyed her skewer of Chicken, served on a salad bed with a dollop of garlic mayonnaise, but I found my Lamb stew had just a few too many peppercorns in the sauce for my liking.

Another San Miguel while we finished off the tapas - they weren't bad really!

Finish with a couple of coffees and the bill came to just over 22.

We were both satisfied with the experience, and would go again soon if it weren't for all the other restaurants we're duty bound to try in the future!!!
