We have found a little gem of a tapas bar in Grange Park in Northampton, I love that La Terraza tapas bar is so close to where we live too, so I’m sure we’ll be visiting often. It’s certainly going to be on the top of my birthday meal venues!

We visited with 4 of our friends for a lovely night out. La Terraza is located just behind Budgen’s on Grange Park and in an area of red brick and industry looks so warm and inviting inside, I couldn’t wait to visit. We were given a lovely warm welcome and taken to our seats, the atmosphere was really buzzing but we were still able to chat and enjoy ourselves without being drowned out by music or other noise (oh gosh, I’m getting so old!)
The menu is pretty vast for quite a small establishment, with many items suitable for vegetarians, I didn’t go short of food at all. I think we almost managed to order everything off the menu, I haven’t eaten Tapas in Spain before but our friends had, and they love it so much they’ve even been 3 times since our visit. So I’m assured that it’s authentic and fresh, it certainly tasted pretty good to me.

My favourite were the Patatas Bravas, the scrumptious potatoes served with lovely potent alioli!
I’ll be visiting again soon during the day with T and look forward to introducing him to some of the flavours and dining style, I'm quite certain that he will love the Tortilla Espanola which was delicious.
I personally loved that you could watch the chefs cooking up the food whilst sitting at the bar. Great choice of Spanish beers, the house white was really nice and they make a mean mojito ok, so not Spanish, but it was very nice!!!
The salted caramel ice cream with crushed walnuts and caramel sauce I had for desert was delicious! I will certainly be ordering that again!
Such beautiful food, lovely surroundings and a fantastic atmosphere really made for a night to remember, I couldn’t recommend highly enough and just look how lovely it is all decked out for Christmas!
Disclaimer: We were given a £50 food bill in exchange for our honest review. We highly recommend La Terraza if you are local or in the area, I keep telling people about it as I loved it so much!
