Our passion for the Spanish culture and its food inspired us to bring authentic tapas to Perth. We want you to experience Spanish food the way it is meant to be, above all delicious, but also simple, down to earth, and accessible.
In Spain, food is a language of love, bringing families and friends together, giving us something to share, expressing creativity and nurturing.
Spanish food is all about simplicity. Though it has reached ‘gourmet’ acclaim in recent years, the elements and the traditional preparation of the foods themselves are quite humble, making the most of what was available at the time, mixing together whatever bits were on hand, creating something greater than the sum of all its parts. (Croquetas, for example, were elaborated from left over pieces of chicken or fish, mixed in a creamy béchamel sauce and fried in bread crumbs.)
Spanish recipes reveal a historical and gastronomical melting pot of cultures; not surprising knowing the succession of cultures that have passed through, conquered, influenced, or settled on the Iberian peninsula, each leaving its mark on the architecture, music, art, history and of course, food of Spain. The food of the Phoenicians, Greeks, Romans, Carthaginians, Jews, and the influence of the Americas, all meld into Spanish cooking, however, the eight century reign of the Moors left the most significant impact in the gastronomy of the country.
I hope you enjoy the cultural journey at La Latina.
¡Que aproveche! (Enjoy!)

Cecilia and I would like to say a big “THANK YOU!” for the wonderful Tapas you created and served to our guests this Saturday past. I must say, you certainly did not disappoint me, and you actually surpassed my expectations.
The last time we have had a full house, we decided to have the catering done by one of ‘the flashy Perth caterers’ and we were more than disappointed.
By contrast, your tapas were all fresh, made with love and passion and delicious. We would prefer you anytime over any of the ‘professional’ caterers. Our guests spoke very highly of the tapas and we have had many compliments about you.
Again, thank you very much and all the best!
David & Cecilia
PS We will be having your delicious Ceviche and Albondigas and Sauce for the rest of the week for dinner...
