The food was amazing!!! Truly. He is a character that is worth meeting. Well traveled and knowledgeable. He is an artist that is jealous of his craft. Don't come here to tell him how to cook. He knows what he is doing, trust the expert....More

Other than the awesome food, the Owner Joan himself greets you like family and tells you all the specialties he has prepared each day. You don't need the menu to order because his daily specials are all you need from the homemade breads, to the...More

We have known Tasca Brava for more than 12 years and they have the best paella valenciana we have ever eaten. Better than paellas in Valencia. Other entrees like fish, solomillo, or chuleta are also delicious. Tapas like pan de queso, gambas al ajillo, chorizo,...More

Tasca Brava has been described as "the little gem" and was placed on the list for the Top Ten Restaurants in the Triangle by the local press. This is because Tasca Brava is a careful blend of everything that is good about Spanish style, cuisine and hospitality, that go together to create a unique authentic relaxed atmosphere, where the visitor chooses to eat or drink as the mood takes them.. Tasca Brava is above all about Tapas, those small individual portions that offer a very flexible and sociable way of dining and most people dine when they visit Tasca Brava. You can eat as much or as little as you like at any time of day, allowing people to suit their own appetites.
