Restaurant has that old Spanish feel. Staff were very helpful. We decided to have paella but we're to late for the cook to make it (45min) But the waiter went and asked the chef if he could and kindly said yes. Well worth the wait for it the taste was amazing. Definitely will be back thank you to all the staff keep up the good work. 10/10 More...

I had dinner by myself here on my trip to Scotland and it was phenomenal! Super friendly and efficient service and each thing I ordered was amazing. I ordered some shrimp, the mushrooms, and the meatballs and it was all delicious. I'd highly recommend this place on your visit to Inverness! More...

We have been in Scotland for a little over a week and wanted something other than bar food. We happened upon this spot while out sightseeing. It was beyond fantastic. We had tapas and paella. The calamari is the best I have ever had and the paella was as good as any I have had in Spain. I would recommend this place to anyone! More...

Fab place to eat, just been once as a group and loved the tapas style of dining lots of variety and very well cooked.  Our waitress was polite, efficient and very chatty despite it being very busy down stairs! Would highly recommend to anyone!

First thing's first - Inverness is a hell-hole. It is filled entirely with charity shops and pubs you'd never go in, it's grey, windy and generally makes you want to die. However, there is one bright spot, and one bright spot alone and that is La Tortilla.Having traipsed the grey streets for what felt like an eternity trying to find somewhere to eat at tea time on a Saturday, we finally stumbled upon La Tortilla on our way back to our hotel. We walked in, asked if they could squeeze us in and happily, they seated us right away in a cosy corner of the room.Our waitress whose name I didn't get was lovely - very friendly, polite and efficient (she also had really cool blonde hair with green dip-dyed ends). We were utterly ravenous, and ordered a selection of tapas whilst we waited for our Barcelona paella. The highlights were the meatballs, the croquettes and the garlic chicken - I could have eaten about 3,000 of those croquettes, they were absolutely delicious.Dear reader, I'm not ashamed to say we had a second round of tapas, which we'd just polished off when the paella arrived. This was served in the traditional paella pan, and was the perfect serving for two. It was really a fantastic dish and much better than any of the paellas I've tried when in Spain. The chicken was really moist and tender and the rice was perfection.Even though we'd eaten enough tapas to feed a family, and polished off two jugs of sangria (also delicious), there was no way I was leaving without having some churros! I am glad I squeezed them in as they were light, fluffy on the inside, crunchy on the outside and not in the least bit greasy. Utterly perfect.Our bill for what was an absolute feast came to £103 and I would be more than happy to do it all again! What a great find this place is - I am only sorry it's in Inverness where I hope never to visit again. More...

Was in Inverness for a few days and our little one wanted tapas so we got a table at this cosy little place and found the service and food to be excellent , we had 3 tapas each so 9 in total and only 1 would have been less than great as we thought the garlic chicken was too garlicky , everything else was so tasty particularly the chorizo in red wine and the prawns in garlic Mayo. We had the Spanish desserts to finish which were superb B had cinnamon French toast and o had the churros.Well recommended for a tasty and different treat in Inverness. More...

Third time here and only first review, my bad for that! Came with Mr. Laura M & his parents this time, and a wonderful meal was had by all. Tasty food, good service and nice wine whilst not being overpriced. I will return most definitely! More...

Super good tapas! The Barcelona Paella is perfect and the Spinach and Blue Cheese Croquettes were delicious and texture perfection  this Californian was so happy to find Spanish food in Inverness!

There's something that draws me into this place-it's informal, welcoming, you can smack or have a full meal, the staff are friendly. The chiperones are fantastic so I hope they get them on the main menu. I can also recommend the Gambas pil pil, jamon, sizzling chicken and battered prawns. I'm glad they reduced the menu now because it tastes fresher. The patatas bravas sauce needs a bit of oomph but besides that it's pretty positive.They do 2 tapas for £5 at lunch mon-fri. More...

Felt a bit silly eating tapas on my first visit to Scotland but wanting a light meal, just around the corner from where we were staying, we gave it a try. The olives were the best I have ever had. The wine selection was excellent, the service as well. All of the selections we chose were delicious, so much we returned another night! Excellent! More...

I was very pleased with this restaurant, highly recommended in my guidebooks. A surprising find in the Highlands, but also surprisingly good. We settled on the fixed-course carnivore selection. We also ordered the chicken and seafood paella, which was amazing! I was slightly dissapointed with the patatas bravas and the spinach croquettes were a bit overpowering, but overall the meal was quite delicious. My boyfriend also enjoyed his port for desert and I liked my white chocolate bombe. More...

A Spanish haven tucked neatly into the Highland capital. A good range of tapas dishes all perfectly sized so that 3 or 4 will sate the most robust appetite. The food manages a satisifying and favourful mix of spice and texture without drowning everything in oil. Great for an autumnal lunch to drive away the growing chill. More...

A tapas bar in Inverness - that's not where this American tourist was expecting to eat, but it was delicious and surprisingly inexpensive.  And they had Sangria!  It was nothing fancy but it was a treat.  Be sure to try it if you're looking for a change.Their web site says they have Paella making demonstrations, Spanish classes, and more.  We had dinner and that was it, but now I wish we had time to do more at La Tortilla Asesina.
