La Casita boasts a relaxed and welcoming ambience. In spite of its quiet Carbis Bay location, this family-run restaurant is incredibly vibrant and has a close team of exceptionally friendly staff. Wander through the heated outdoor terrace area and the first thing that draws your attention is the bustling bar, where Iga invites you to unwind with a pre-dinner cocktail. Sit at the bar or on the terrace and enjoy a tipple from the European wine and drinks menu, which also includes Cornish cider and spirits.
The finest fresh ingredients are meticulously sourced both locally and from Spain by head chef Javier Vivo and his predominantly Spanish kitchen team. These ingredients are at the heart of La Casita’s tempting menu, which features fresh fish and shellfish specials that change daily. Perhaps start with chargrilled sardines complemented by garlic aioli or delicious fillet steak Carpaccio with peppery rocket and Parmesan. Moving on to mains, try the Spanish seafood stew with saffron and almonds, or a flavoursome Iberico pork fillet. Alternatively, you can choose from an authentic Seville-inspired tapas menu or plump for an equally authentic choice of Spanish paella or fideuà, which is often cooked outdoors. If you’re craving Italian food, La Casita offers thin and crispy handmade pizzas alongside a varied selection of delicious pasta dishes. Booking is strongly advised if you’re eating in, although a wide selection of meals is also available to take away.
