I've been to La Rocas before, for lunch. We took advantage of the 3 for £5 deal - it was great, so I was expecting good stuff from the evening menu too.
We were settled down at a table and served a large amount of food. My favourite dish was the sharing platter. I personally don't care that it wasn't "authentic", and I'd imagine neither do any of their customers. They don't pretend to be an authentic tapas restaurant, and I like garlic bread. The majority of the food was OK, but unfortunately a couple of dishes really weren't.
Would it stop me from eating at La Rocas again - no. But I was disappointed they served it to a group of food bloggers though, the reviews of the food haven't been good, I feel for La Rocas that the event wasn't successful.
I wouldn't normally order a dessert in a tapas restaurant but I was really hoping we'd be wowed by them and it would turn things round food-wise. They were homemade, and sweet. I'd change a few things if I was making them, but that's just me.
After the food we were invited to the bar to try a cocktail each. As with most cocktails in Wakefield they were very colourful...
I enjoyed the evening, and I will still recommend La Rocas for lunch. But I can't get over feeling so disappointed by the food and the fact nobody spoke to us though. It was a wasted opportunity for La Rocas.
I also think I've been to too many blogger events recently, and will be taking a break from them to concentrate on my own food. Being so busy is taking it's toll on me.
