“Simple, tasty food at reasonable prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

Part of the Mediterranean dining experience is that the food is quite simple. Salads, grilled foods, eaten at a gentle pace washed down with wine and water.

This restaurant fits the bill perfectly. For example, creme of white asparagus soup. Delicate yet tasty. Pan-fried lamb chops with rosemary.

Many restaurants in the town/area cater to the tourist and thus provide staple, popular cuisine, such as pizza or chicken. This place offers something different, and although it is slightly more expensive, it is worth a visit.

Note - It is a very small restaurant (maybe a dozen tables) and the toilets are upstairs and have no handicapped access.

“Excellent every time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012 via mobile

Cannot fault La Casa at all. Food is always at a high standard, prices are reasonable and the owners Mike and Serene are some of the friendliest people you could ever meet! I try to make a trip to this restaurant a regular occasion as I cannot get enough of their homemade baileys and after eight ice cream - to die for! 5 stars.

“Expensive for what you get”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

Thought we would try this place and was extremely disappointed. The place was expensive for what you got. The steak wasn't cooked how I asked and I can only describe the service as slow!
The whole place felt "old fashioned " and uncomfortable, and the menu a bit dated and limited.
Not quite sure how the place got so high up the charts but hey ho each to their own!!
I can easily name at least 4 places in Calpe a million times better to go and eat than this one. Sorry but that is my view!

“Reliable cosy restaurant with good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012 via mobile

I have eaten at this cosy little restaurant many times over several years and the food is consistently good. I often see the owner buying fresh veg in the market and this is reflected in the quality of the food he cooks. The menu changes fortnightly and is available to ' take away' to show other members of the party. Last week we thoroughly enjoyed the 3 course set menu which includes wine for around 20 euros. We had veal in Marsala wine with saffron risotto for our main course, it was delicious. I must admit I prefer eating here in the cooler months as it is small and can be hot inside. Sadly the outdoor terrace is not always open even on warm evenings. I would have given 5 stars for cooking but sometimes we choose not to eat here when we visit because the set menu often tends to focus on meat dishes and mostly we would rather eat fish.
