This is the taste of Spain, with tapas, grilled meats and – and if you tell La Boca in advance – paella. Book a table now to begin your evening in Glasgow city centre in style.

Further Information

Spanish food is one of the most popular restaurant options in Glasgow, and when you take a trip to La Boca on Hope Street in the city centre, it is easy to see why. A combination of tapas-style small plates to share makes Spanish food the perfect option for a large group or party, whether you’re gathered together to celebrate a special occasion, or just for a special family meal. Dishes come when they are ready, and can be continually ordered, so if you like a dish, just order another!

At La Boca, the kitchen recommends you take at least three tapas per person. We recommend a vegetarian dish, such as patatas bravas or Spanish omelette, a fish dish like calamares or boquerones, and a meat dish like, for example, albondigas or one of the chorizo dishes. always colourful no matter the combo you choose, book a table now at their city centre location on Hope Street to begin your Glasgow night out in style.

Fantastic food and service. Never had a bad experience here. Tuesdays are great value as all tapas dishes are £2.50. The best Spanish restaurant in glasgow.

Best and authentic Spanish tapas place in Glasgow. Selection of beers and wines plus food is peerless. Others are pale imitations and overpriced. Absolutely recommended!

The food in La Boca was great and the staff were lovely. The only thing that was missing was sangria! Our table for two was a wee bit cramped in terms of seat space and there was a high powered fan aimed at our table. On request, the fan was pointed in another direction so that was wee bit of a help. I spent my visit facing the kitchen door so the staff heads popping up and down peeking out at the customers through the window was a bit of a distraction. I had asked to be moved but this didn't go down well even though there were a lot of tables empty so we stayed put. The decor could do with refreshing but overall it is a nice place to eat, not for a special occasion though.

On arrival every table was taken and the atmosphere was buzzing with chat & laughter. We were asked to wait at the bar for ten minutes so we sat at the bar and had a drink - nice red Rioja.. Once sat at our table we watched the food being rolled out of the kitchen and it looked like we were in for a treat. We ordered 6 dishes between two and a side of bread to soak up the lovely juice and oils. The food was fantastic,plentiful and well cooked and presented. Bravo La Boca.

I will start with one bad point, we were welcomed and shown to our table by a very nice waitress and given menus and made aware of the specials, which was fine, but we sat for just over 15 minutes without being approached and I had to ask a waitress if we could at least order drinks, so that was not good From that it was another 10 minutes before we got our food order taken, so a little bit of improvement in this area would have made me give this rating a 6 However that is when it went uphill, the food was excellent, and service from that point good The range of food choice was really good, and a decent variety of specials, the Duck was the best I have tasted in a long time Staff all really friendly and possibly could do with another member at busy times, as seem to struggle at busy times as restaurant was full, there did seem to be one guy sitting on a chair watching the staff I do not know if he was the owner or not, but if he had anything to do with the restaurant he could have assisted to ease pressure on the staff, especially at bar To conclude excellent standard of food, good atmosphere, friendly staff and not too expensive, will I be back, definitely

I arrived early and informed staff member that there would possibly be a bigger party, than I had booked for, this was not a problem even though the additional people didn't turn up. The food was excellent, the portions are good sized. All the staff are very pleasant and helpful. I had been in La Boca for lunch a couple of times, previous to this visit, and have not yet been able to fault either the food or the service.

Loved this place. Friendly, efficient service; simple, authentically Spanich decor and the tapas were delicious - especially loved the spinach croquettes and the gambas. We felt the drinks were a bit pricey at over £5 for a pint and £20 for a jug of sangria, but the overall bill was reasonable. Would totally recommend La Boca.

I had 3 tapas dishes, all very good, plus one of their Licor 43 cocktails - la boca baya - which was also really nice. My sister just had a meal size portion of secreto iberico which she really enjoyed. Service was maybe not the speediest, but was helpful and friendly. Was all reasonably priced, but when came to pay at the end the waitress misheard me and put £10 too much on the card machine. I should have corrected her but was too embarrassed, so entirely my fault, but that was the only slight dampener on a really enjoyable dinner.

La Boca is great authentic tapas with good quality Rioja at inexpensive prices. We have now made it our favourite pre theatre city centre destination but make sure to book as it is busy - but service excellent and friendly.

As always excellent food and service. Food really tasty and staff helpful, friendly and efficient without being intrusive. I would recommend La Boca for luncn or dinner. The express lunch is exceptionally good value, as is the the pre-theatre menu.

Once again La Boca didn't disappoint. The Tapas are authentic and cooked to perfection. The staff are extremely polite and attentive, without being pushy. A Tapas bar in the heart of Glasgow that delivers a big slice of Spain!

The best Tapas we have eaten outside Spain. The albondigas were very light and tasty. The black pudding was again very light and the secreto iberico was as good as the one we had cooked by an anadlucian chef. The staff were all helpful but non intrusive. Didn't have the express lunch though it looked fantastic value. 3 tapas for £6.95. We were too greedy and had lots of time. We will certainly be back!

Excellent authentic Spanish Tapas cooked to perfection by the Spanish Chef and Spanish kitchen staff. A little Ray of Andalusian Sunshine in the Heart of Glasgow. Good selection of Spanish Beers, wines and cocktails, Every Tapas we have tasted in this little restaurant has been delicious even the Postres menu is delicious. This is one of our family's favourite place to eat when visiting the town centre

Visited for an early evening meal - had bread & olives followed by 5 tapas to share between two. Service was quick and with a smile, and the restaurant is very authentic and has a lovely ambience. The food was wonderful - especially the chorizo in red wine sauce, and the fried aubergine. 100% recommended!

The staff were lovely welcing and cheery, the restaurant has a lovely cosy busy atmosphere, but fairly quick table turnover. Food was delicious! As was the wine. One of our tapas dishes didn't come but we were charged for it along with an extra glass of wine which we hadn't had. However the waitress swiflty dealt with the bill problem. Really enjoyed our evening.

Good atmosphere prior to the Champions League final (Real Madrid v Atletico Madrid). We went for the pre theatre tapas menu which was good value and there was the flexibilty of adding dishes from the a la carte. Good variety of dishes and some you wouldn't see on some other tapas chain restaurants.

On arriving my table wasn't ready due to a large group still in the main dining area. Waitress offered me a seat at the bar which I happily accepted. I prefer to eat tapas at the bar as I do when visiting Andalucía. Although busy, service was efficient and the food arrived in a timely manner and was excellent as usual.

Great value lunch on 'Loco Tuesday' when tapas are £2.50/plate. The food is authentic and doesn't try too hard to be different or special - just tasty and more-ish. We had some great morcilla, ensalida rusa, poor potatoes, cheese, croquette, stew and tomatoes. Staff friendly and not intrusive. Perfect.

I've been here quite a lot and the food is always superb. This time I was with a large group so the service was a teeny bit slow but I put that down to them maybe bot being used to large groups since it's a small restaurant. Would still recommend! Special mention for the sangria which is delicious!

Food is absolutely brilliant - very authentic Spanish in the middle of Glasgow! We especially love the albondigas and the prawns - so tasty but on our next visit I will be trying the brochettas de pollos. This is our favourite restaurant.

Great quality of the dishes, although not serving paella in the weekend is a big minus. The wine selection is good, the dishes as already said come quickly and preserve all the aromas and taste to be unleashed directly in the mouths of the customers. The atmosphere is friendly as well, staffs are nice and warm. Highly recommended as pre-theatre destination.
