Excellent bar meal

Rather strange to review bar meals - the restaurant was closed on the Monday evening when we were there. We had excellent tapas, penne with meat balls and a very nice pizza. I suspect that the restaurant is even better - definitely on our list for the next time we are in the area!

I have eaten in the Barca bar at Casa a number of times and have been to several functions at the hotel but this was the first time I had eaten in the restaurant. The whole experience was first class from start to finish. The welcome we received by the staff was very friendly and the service throughout was excellent.... More

I had visited the restaurant before but this was the first time I had tried the 'Early Bird' menu which was £21-50 for three courses. As usual, the standard of food and service was very good.

We used to go to a pub in Dronfield where the food was fantastic. Then the chef, Mark, left. Dronfield was devastated. I learnt two years later that he was the head chef at the Cocina restaurant in La Casa Hotel, Chesterfield. We have been to the Cocina several times and have never been disappointed. We went on Mothers Day,... More

I've eaten at this restaurant several times and whilst the food is generally good its by far not the best I've had. Even if I limit the competition to the the Chesterfield area. I've always taken it as it is but the last experience made me feel like I should review it. Ordering the tapas you should be prepared for... More

Dear Nigel B Thank you for taking time to review us. I am sorry you felt the portions were small. Tapas is, as your rightly mention, prepared and presented to be shared by the table and when ordered as recommended between 2 or more people we feel that the portion size when pooling all of the ordered dishes together provides...

We went for the early evening special as we had heard mixed reviews and didn't want to spend a fortune and be disappointed. Well we were definitely not disappointed. The service was second to none and we have eaten in some expensive Michelin star restaurants that were not as good. The food was really tasty and portions were not for... More

Excellent service, lovely looking restaurant, but unfortunately mediocre food. The serving staff (manager included) were all lovely and the food was well presented, but in my humble opinion, the whole experience was let down by poor quality food.
