The four of us were returning from Lake Tahoe and decided to stop in Placerville for lunch. We found Cascada. The food was outstanding and the service was spot on. We all left there full and amazed at finding this great restaurant.

We had a wonderful meal here on our way back from Lake Tahoe. Placerville is full of charm and many fun places to visit. This was an exceptionally great restaurant and the food was delicious, plentiful, and well presented. Not your typical Mexican restaurant as the food was more of a regional cuisine and one of the best meals I've... More

You get really large amounts of meat here in your portions if that matter to you. For example, the enchiladas will be bustling with yummy meat. Weekends Cascada does really well, and the kitchen and of course is very good. Chips and tri-salsa will get you yearning to come back to this place, I think that's their secret (make it... More

Nice ambiance, good service and excellent salads. Wife and I had two different types of salads and they had very fresh greens and nice twists from your normal restaurant salads.

My husband and I were visiting Placerville on our way to Sacramento. A friend recommended we try Cascada for lunch. Wow. The menu is extensive and we had no complaints about the food we ordered. I had Enchiladas Supremas and thought I'd died and gone to heaven! Excellent sauce and the enchiladas were popping out with lobster and fish. My... More

One of the earliest towns near the discovery of gold site in Coloma was Placerville. It boomed during the gold rush of 1850. You'll discover gold by visiting Old Placerville and dining at Cascada, a wonderful fusion restaurant that blends Italian , Mexican and Californian cuisine. It has great value as well as excellent food. I heartily recommend the ribeye... More

First time at this restaurant, went with family. My spouse had the Puerca con Frambuesa: pork tenderloin with raspberry sauce and a variety of veggies in olive oil. He said the pork was cooked just right and the sauce was excellent. The veggies were still crisp and not too much olive oil. My mom's spouse had the Costillas de Borrego:... More
