Meal with a friend; I know she has good taste, and she knows the area. I'd been past this place a few times, always wanted to try it out. Now - Tapas is never proper Tapas, in this country - because we go to buy it, rather than being served food while having a beer, as in Tapas countries. That... More

We ate here on a Tuesday night for the all day happy hour. There was only us in the restaurant but it didn't really matter as the atmosphere was still great. It made us feel like we were on holiday. Lovely food. Ordered 7 plates between us which was more than enough. Great find. Will be back.

I visited this tapas bar with my partner shortly before Christmas as our last meal out in Sheffield before heading south to visit family. It was late afternoon, as I was working that evening halfway across the city, though La Mama are only a ten-minute walk from where we live so the location was convenient for this purpose for us....

Got there at 9.10 trip advisor states open until 10 people eating and apparently the kitchen is closed even though we travelled to get there. Joke

Visited with short notice on a Saturday evening. Niche friendly service and live music provided a good atmosphere. I tried the chicken, beef and potato bravas tapas all of which were great

Went on a Thursday night at 6pm with 2 other friends. The food was amazing, still talking about it two weeks later!! We ordered pretty much everything, and we were amazed by the quality and flavour of the food despite the quantity of food ordered!!

My first time at the restaurant with my husband and I absolutely loved it we were the first ones in and we had an amazing dinner. We love the meatballs and we really enjoyed the whitebait. The bottle of Chardonnay was great so refreshing. We ordered far too much but eat it all, but we've decided to book for Mother's... More

I am a regular customer at La mama after my first visit ( which was incredible). Every single time is a journey! From entering the door to be welcomed by the staff, with a very familiar/friendly atmosphere, to the taste of the great variety of tapas they offer! The food is incredibly tasty and it never gets boring as you... More

A fantastic evening. The place is a really quaint, family run type of establishment where (cheese alert) you can really taste the love in the food produced. It isn't for your cheap eats, for most people, a visit here would be a once a month expenditure. The food IS worth the money though, don't get me wrong. The staff are... More
