A dear friend had a 5 hr layover in Newark International Airport, so we picked her up for an early dinner. Casa Vasca, located about 15 minutes away was the perfect find. Must appreciated free parking in its parking lot! We entered the bar, and the bartender directed us into the restaurant. It was still early (4:30pm), but everything and... More

Had dinner here after a show at NJPAC. Nice selection of food, soup is included with the meal. Friendly servers and reasonably priced. And a parking lot to boot which is great since it's in a residential neighborhood and parking is at a premium.

I have really worried about writing this because I have been eating here for over 20 years. This is hard to say, but unfortunately in the last year the potions have gotten smaller and they are not cooked as well. We always get the Mariscara and the last few times we went the seafood has been tough and overcooked. Yes,... More

I have eaten at this Spanish Restaurant many times and it is outstanding. Large selection of food to choose from , the food is so fresh and delicious. The restaurant is spotless and the staff is outstanding in their service. If you want truly authentic Spanish Food you will never be disappointed.

We visited this restaurant last night, because we had tickets to the Eagles concert at the Prudential Center. I have always wanted to visit a restaurant in Ironbound, and try some of the Portuguese or Spanish restaurants. I selected this place, based on the Trip Advisor reviews. We were extremely happy with our choice. First of all, as everyone else... More

The food was quite good, although beware that the portions are quite large. We ordered 3 dishes amongst 5 people and still had leftovers. The paella was good. Service could've been better though.

This is my go-to restaurant in Newark for traditional Spanish food - as evidenced by a short walk through the bar room full of Spanish/Portuguese people, on your way into the dining room. Portions are huge and relatively cheap, in my opinion. The decor is minimal, as seen in one of the photos, so depending on your tastes, it may... More

My wife and I and our grandson ate here before a Red Bulls game. At 4 PM on a Saturday they were busy. Wonderful service. Great soup and meals. Delicious Portuguese cuisine. Parking lot. Easy access to Red Bulls stadium. Definitely will go back before a NJPAC performance.

I've coming there for 20 years. The food is alway outstanding and the prices are great. The best sangria in my opinion. The service is always excellent.
