Our Story

As business and life partners we work together to provide excellent authentic Spanish food and organised professional service

Carlos - " Growing up in Catalunya I had two loves, food and music. I arrived in England at 23 excited to see a new country and I have to admit life was a little tougher than I imagined. Realising my English was not up to scratch I started at the bottom as a potwasher. However the Bristol restaurant scene was kind to me and I soon worked my way up to restaurant manager. My love of food and cooking continued to grow as I experimented with different jobs whilst trying to make a living with my music, again a tricky path. Once I met Helen and she encouraged me to try to make a business from at least one of my passions, Las Tapitas was born. I had grown up with my Catalan grandmother, watching her cook and eating her delicious food. I set out to recreate her dishes and the fond memories I had of family meals. However I never forgot my rural Spanish roots and my love of paella. Being a performer, cooking big pan paellas is very natural to me. I love the spectacle, the amazement of people's faces and bringing my Spanish flair to all sorts of special occasions. Britain has been good to me, it has given me a business and a woman I love so I appreciate being able to give back my passion for Spanish flavours "



Located in the heart of the Cotswolds between Cheltenham and Oxford, we are conveniently situated to serve Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire, Worcestershire, Warwickshire, Herefordshire, Buckinghamshire, Wiltshire, Berkshire, Bristol, Bath and more...

We aim to create the highest quality and most authentic product possible.

We only use red tractor approved British fresh meat and our charcuteries are directly from Spain.

 We use local Cotswold chicken, free range eggs, British dairy and Spanish cheese.

We thank El Colmado in Bristol for providing us with the best Spanish products to bring to you.

Helen - " Since studying Spanish as a young teenager I fell in love with the language and culture. Through my twenties, living in San Francisco I worked in a variety of restaurants and developed my love of latin cuisine and travelling in Central and South America I practised my Spanish language. On a sabbatical back to England I fell in love with Carlos and we began the adventure of launching Las Tapitas. We fuse our mutual love of Spanish food with Carlos's cooking skills and my organisational background."
