About La Terraza
La Terraza, situated at 40 Hersham Road in Walton on Thames, has been treating locals to quality Spanish and Mediterranean cuisine since 2005. The menu reads like a laden trestle table under the Spanish sun – packed with tapas options and paella, plus an incredible range of carefully selected Spanish wines. This family-owned operation also makes and bottles its own poncha, a liqueur distilled from sugar cane and lemon juice that is sure to break through any overcast day.

The landscape within London’s M25 rarely conjures up images of the Mediterranean, though many a Londoner has dreamed of flying south while driving in despair along a stretch of the infamous ring-road. Short of a plane ticket, your best option is to head to La Terraza in Walton on Thames, Surrey. Here, at 40 Hersham Road, you’ll find a family-owned Spanish tapas bar and restaurant that works like an oasis in the desert, bringing authentic Spanish and Mediterranean cuisines to locals since 2005. Beckoning a beam of the Spanish sunshine into people’s lives has been head chef and patriarch Antonio’s dream since 2005.
And La Terraza is going from strength to strength, still offering a cornucopia of Spanish and Mediterranean food and drink, from full a la carte service to small tapas and sumptuous paella. And it’s not simply a taste of Spain that La Terraza provide, there’s a decidedly homemade essence to their offering. This is best captured – and bottled – by the family’s home-brewed poncha, a drink that La Terraza describe as their lethal speciality. Poncha is a Madeiran liqueur distilled from sugar cane and fruit juices, from which the more well-known caipirinha derives and with which the Anglo-Indian punch is associated. But while we’re at 40 Hersham Road in Walton on Thames we want to think neither of Queen and Country nor the colonies. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the sunshine at La Terraza.
Great place, great food and amazing service. It was an Outstanding experience. I recommend the place, and thre is no doubt that I will visit this restaurant again.
Absolutely fantastic food and service, this is the third time i've been to this restaurant in as many months and would highly recommend it to anyone.
La Terraza totally lived up to our expectations. The food was absolutely delicious and there was a great atmosphere. We would highly recommend a visit.
Excellent restaurant. Great service, great food - fun place for a get together! Menu is fab, from tapas to skate to steaks etc. What more could one want?
This restaurant has a great and delicious selection of tapas, main meals and desserts. The room is light and airy and the tables are not too close together. The waiters are very attentive and have a joke with you and explain anything you want. The quality of the food is very good and if like me you do not always eat everything, they do have takeways bags available. A great place for celebrations or a family Sunday lunch.
The most authentic Spanish Tapas restaurant in Surrey. Efficient & friendly. Considering it was a very busy Mother's day, there wasn't a single problem. I've been to many other restaurants on a Mother's day & there have been plenty of problems but here, all credit to all the staff. Thank you for an excellent experience and "I'll be back"!
Have eaten here many times, the menu has so much choice of really good Tapas and main meals. Desert menu a bit poor, but when we saw the new addition of CHURROS we ordered three lots but were disappointed to be told that did not have any. Why show a new choice then not source it to be sold?
Excellent food friendly service. The Paisley marine was exellent, not to mention the lobster starter. What more you want? Perhaps the waiters could be more understanding like when you order paella for two , it useful to have plate to get a portion out of the dish. But no problem , if you don't ask, you don't get.
Excellent meals, we shared the starter as we know of our past experience the size of the starter and main meal. The baked see as was excellent , my partner find her skate salty, the waiter changed the meal without further discussion. I finished with lemon tart and a coffe. Our experience excellent as before
La Terraza is our favourite restaurant: Be it for business or for a family meal, the food is always excellent and the service friendly, professional and unobtrusive.
We loved this restaurant. It is close to our house, and we absolutely love going there. The food and service are great. We like to order a variety of tapas. We are still working through the list. Come try it out. You will NOT be disappointed!
Ate here mid July 2016 on a Tue evening, table for 3. Food was good, but the service was very slow and they kept forgetting our order, and even left the drinks sitting at the bar for ages before bringing them over. I'd go here again for the food. Service was added to the bill I noticed as well.
Lovely welcoming staff, great food. Well worth a visit. Tapas delicious. tables around the side of the room are better if you are with a party as it can be a little noisy if you are seated in the middle of the restaurant.
This used to be a buzzing restaurant with fabulous, authentic tapas..... Oh dear I use the word 'used' We had a variety of dishes, the calamari & whitebait were soggy, not crisp. There was next to no aubergine in the aubergine gratin. The crab claw dish resembled something from the freezer cabinet of Iceland & the meatballs, were ghastly, smooth meat slurry type consistence in a nasty white sauce.... What on earth has happened? Its a crying shame and it needs addressing fast. Incredibly disappointing visit. The service & wine were good though, as always
Excellent meal from an extensive menu and very attentive service. We were delighted with all aspects of our visit and at a reasonable price. We've been before, and will be back.
Lovely staff and the food was great! Great restaurant to have a party, good atmosphere, would be great in the summer as you can sit outside, would definitely go back!
Food delicious as always and friendly service A group of 3 couples thoroughly enjoyed the Lovely house Rioja! Would recommend evening for couples, friends and day time for families too
Very good food and enjoyable atmosphere however a little loud so could not enjoy a conversation with our dinner. Tried the Monkfish for the first time and found it delicious
great atmosphere and a very warm welcome on arrival. The Sangria is amazing and the food was of a very good standard and delivered to our table in a really timely fashion. Will be back!
The food was great. The portions were much larger than we expected. I particularly liked the bacon wrapped scallops and the prawn tapas with the garlic and chili sauce.
Had a girlie night out and were well looked after. The menu is superb with lots of choice and the food was gorgeous. Will definitely recommend it to friends
it is the second time I have eaten at la terraza Walton on thames the food was yet again excellent as was the service. I have recommended it to a lot of my friends.
Very good food excellent service . Great value, as a party of four, 10 tapas dishes was plenty. Have recommended this restaurant to friends and family
Friendly, competent staff - busy and popular restaurant. Would certainly go again - lovely main courses - we had Tapas and delicious deserts. Parking nearby.
As usual the food was great and the service very friendly and attentive. Always a pleasure to have a nice weekend lunch in this restaurant
Very good value. Generous portions, friendly and efficient service. The house wines were excellent if you just want a glass or two. The restaurant has its own car park.
A very good meal. Tapas gives you so much choice and people can share and try new things. A nice lively restaurant with good service.
Very patient staff in regard to toddlers. Food always excellent. Best to go early When accompanied by youngsters. Menu does not seem to change much.
Great ambience, good service, attentive but not overbearing and super food all makes for a great experience.
Always a great place where to dine as the service is great and the food very good!
Nice atmosphere, good service and excellent food. Would definitely come visit again.
Lovely meal great service and fab entertainment we enjoyed it so much
excellent food and service, atmosphere was brilliant. We will definitely be returning.
The food was cold & not particularly tasty, the service was unfriendly & we generally had a poor experience. Will not be going back again.
Food as always was absolutely amazing!! The young waiter is just fantastic!!
We went for tapas. the dishes were poor- from bright orange oven baked calamari to meat dishes swimming in bland gravy. The service wasn't much better with mumbling staff who insisted on serving our tapas as two courses. Would definitely not recommend nor go there again.
The restaurant is pleasant and the food and service were good.
