First established in 2003, La Raza is now one of Cambridge’s favourite restaurants, combining the relaxed vibe of a cocktail bar with the sophistication of a restaurant and lively atmosphere of a live music venue. Open all day long, seven days a week, La Raza offers something for just about everybody, from romantic dates to discerning proffesionals and partying students letting their hair down after a long day in lectures.
Barista coffee is served throughout the day at La Raza, with a fine lunch menu including gourmet sandwiches as well as tapas available from midday. In the evening La Raza’s varied tapas menu, inspired by the flavours of the Mediterranean, is served alongside a variety of cocktails, beers and fine wines. As well known for its music as it is for its food, La Raza is home to live bands most wednesdays, thursday and fridays while additional sounds come courtesy of skilled DJs that keep the party alive.

Certainly wasn't cooked with stock or with safforn and totally unseasoned. Did tell the waiting staff but they just shrugged and took the full price anyway. Not much point if asking if everything is ok if you have an ambivalent response to a negative customer comment.

Wonderful considerate staff serving excellent food and drinks who really go the extra mile to ensure every one is looked after. Best tapas around and an environment that provides a full evenings entertainment.

When we turned up the restaurant was empty - waiter explained that they were not expecting delivery of supplies until Thursday so half the dishes on the menu were not available. Obviously we did what presumably anyone else who went in there that night did, and left.

Very engaged and friendly staff. Great experience.

We were a tad disappointed with the chorizo tapas we ordered, very watery and bland…not sure why it came with croutons as these just became a soggy mess after a while. The calamares were also a tad on the soggy side. Really wanted to love the place, but unfortunately the food just wasn’t reminiscent enough of authentic Spanish cuisine for us.

They are set up really well for covid with perspex sheeting between tables and the atmosphere is relaxed with easy lighting. The food is the highlight and the staff are friendly and welcoming.

We ordered three paellas, two chicken and chorizo and one vegetarian. Big portions, for six people probably two are enough. The problem was they were not tasty at all. Bland flavour, sticky rice. If you visit stick to the tapas, the paella is not worth it.

The setting of la raza is what makes it nice, except it seemed like we were in a cafe.. the door was left open so it was freezing, it felt like we were just left in there, there was a table next to us where the girl was completely drunk out of her face and was being really loud and annoying. Being stuck in this area to eat our food is what spoiled it for us. Such a shame as we usually love it here in the restaurant.

However, our phones were out of signal for 4g and the WiFi wasn’t good. It took us so long to try and order anything. When first seated nothing was explained to us and we felt almost like we were putting them out. The food was yum, as were the cocktails-once we were able to order them. I think Covid is definitely effecting customer service, which is understandable, however we were on our honeymoon and was looking for something with a bit of sparkle.

Ticking lots of boxes saying you dont want promotional material is tedious. And when I ordered a second drink I had to it all again. Other restaurants have a much more user friendly Covid ordering system. Also not sure how necessary the big plastic screens are - they kill the ambience; again many other places have managed this better. Was good value due to eat out scheme.

The only down side was we ordered 2 desserts and initially they were not brought out. The waiters apologised and then 1 of them came out. We were offered a free drink as an apology but we kindly declined as we were happy to wait for the 2nd dessert. Overall it did not detract from our lovely evening and we will definitely be returning.
