Tapas in Inverness

I've never done a restaurant review on here before but I thought you needed to know about La Tortilla Asesina on Castle Street in Inverness.

Set on two levels, opposite the castle, this tapas restaurant is well worth a visit if you like good rioja, a pleasant ambience and excellent food - and don't mind if the service is done at a relaxed pace.

The bill came to around £110 for five of us with coffee and two excellent bottles of wine. We had a wide range of tapas, from a well flavoured pimiento and almond salad, through to classic meatballs, white anchovies, spicy potatoes, honied parsnips and aubergines and various forms of seafood with dips.

The decor is typically Spanish but the laminated menus with pictures of the food reminded me too much of being on holiday. They did lower the tone a bit.

Having said that, we really enjoyed our meal. The atmosphere was great and the food was delicious and would happily go back there.

Only just seen this Caron, but I have to say I agree with you. It is one of the best place to eat in Inverness.
And it has the added advantage of being owned by a Lib Dem member. A group of us gathered in the upper room after the polls closed in last year's elections, watching the results not roll in.
