Good place to go with a group

By comparison with tapas served in Barcelona, this does not hit the authentic scale, but that said, the food is tasty, fresh and well-prepared. All our party seemed to enjoy the experience and the opportunity to share dishes is always good for bonding... Not a place for a romantic night out, but... read more

We've been there with my colleagues to celebrate Friday ;). It was overloaded (because you know each and every would like to end up with Friday) so basically we have to wait our table and service was also a little bit laggy but overall impression is great. Food was delicious and we also ordered pitcher of local drink (I know... More

Food is delicious and the service is spot on. It gets very lively on weekends, especially when there is live music - so if you don't like good Latin music, maybe this isn't the place for you. We enjoy dining there for lunch and dinner - Good menu!

Recommended by a co-worker I went to Cascal with high hopes. Unfortunately, it didn't meet the standards that I was expecting. First, I was expecting traditional Spanish Tapas, and instead this is more Mexican/Spanish fusion Tapas. Much different. Okay, I'll give it a try. Staff was just not that friendly. Met at the door with a scour and waiter was... More

Love the food, especially the olive oil dipping sauce for the bread, but it's always very full and very noisy.

Heard a lot about this Spanish restaurant so we went here for our friends Birthday party on warm Saturday night . We got a table after a waiting time of 30 mins, which was okay. The restaurant was full and there was a live band playing. The atmosphere was Vibrant. I was a little depressed when I asked for a... More

Cascal's is a popular spot on Castro, and has been for the 10 or so years it has been open. It offers an ample array of vegetarian, seafood and meat Tapas and full meals (four Tapas serves two quite well). What we like best is the offering of uncommon Spanish and South American wines like Malbecs and Tampranillos without the... More

I have eaten here a number of times in large and small groups and the food has been consistently good but the service stinks. I will not be eating here anytime soon. They do not honor reservations and they treat their customers very badly. My money will be going where it is welcome.

My husband & I are vegetarians and love to find local restaurants that include good vegetarian entrees on their menus. Cascal does not disappoint! The vegetarian paella is delicious. We order the large version and always have enough to take home for left-overs. There are also several appetizers/small plates that we enjoy - especially the eggplant tian. Accompany this with...

This is a great option to get something a little different in Mountain View. The tapas are excellent, if a little expensive. It can get pretty crowded on the weekends, so come early or expect a wait.
