“The grilled chorizo was absolute Iberian excellence as were the patatas bravas, both of which absolutely epitomised all of our favourite things about tapas.”
- Joshua Atkins, So So Gay
Hands down, this is the best Tapas as I have enjoyed outside of rural Spain. The prices aren’t silly either. It’s an interesting and varied menu that certainly gets 10/10 from me.

It’s a restaurant at which one would like to be a regular. There can be no better recommendation. I’ll be reserving my table – the one in the corner by the window.

To close out a wonderful evening of good food and friendly service, Salvatore Cricchio, owner of La Mancha, came out to meet us and share with us his passion for bringing a taste of Spanish culture and food to his guests. He’s certainly done just that for us in Chiswick, bringing the Spanish social dining experience right onto our high road. As locals, this is somewhere we’ll be returning to again and again.

La Mancha instantly brings a homely feel. Greeted by the friendly staff, the restaurant is family run and they will welcome you with open arms…The seafood paella had to be one of the best I’ve tried. Presented in a metal bowel filled with fresh seafood. It was indeed yummy full of flavour, simply scrumptious… The paella is one of the best I had, and suckling pig will need to make the signature dish mark, tapas portions are fantastic starting from £3.

With a south-facing bi-fold glass shop front allowing the unobstructed flooding of natural light, al fresco seating fully occupied at the first hint of sunshine, gentle Spanish guitars playing in the background and Spanish diners in the full flow of conversation to the right of me, it could almost have been Seville… Pan con tomate was generous (three large slices) …They were probably the best I’ve had – a winning balance of texture, flavour and top seasoning, with no way for them to be improved… Mr. Salvatore makes a point to welcome everyone that walks through the door, ever-present yet in no way overbearing; I felt as though I’d been coming here for years after just 15 minutes

Highlights include the wonderful Iberico ham that just seemed to melt in the mouth and the fantastic roasted suckling pig was sticky, tender and perfect

The food at La Mancha is competent, and a pleasant addition to the area… Less than a week after opening it was already turning tables on a weekday evening
- Andy Hayler, food writer and restaurant critic
The food at La Mancha is great value. The quality is top-notch, good portion sizes and you can spend the whole evening in the restaurant without feeling under pressure – a great night out every time.
