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 you’re invited to unwind with a Spanish-style gin and tonic, wine or cocktail. Sit at the bar or on the terrace and relax with a glass of fine wine sourced from small boutique vineyards in Spain and Europe, or one of the Cornish beers and ciders.
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 menu, which features fresh fish and shellfish specials that change daily, pescaito frito with garlic aioli, or a platter of the finest black foot, acorn-fed jamon Iberico with a glass of ice cold fino.
You’re spoilt for choice for mains choose from traditional paella, the fideua menu, fresh fish specials or the parilla for delicious chargrilled meats. Alternatively, choose from an authentic Seville-inspired tapas menu and perhaps plump for tortilla de patata, albondigas or gambas al ajillo. If you’re craving Italian food, La Casita offers thin and crispy handmade pizzas, as well as a selection of regularly changing pasta dishes, made by Italian chef Matteo Decassan. Booking is strongly advised if you’re eating in, although a wide selection of meals is also available to take away.
