I found that the food, over the past few years, has gone downhill. The service is attentive. But the food is not as tasty as it used to be.

The name means old house and the atmosphere is like the courtyard of a traditional Mexican family home. The welcome is sincere and the wait staff attentive, not rushed. Margaritas in authentic glassware. The food is diverse with many beef, pork and chicken dishes as well as fish and shrimp. I had chicken fajitas which came with refried beans and... More

We have eaten at Casa Vieja several times in past years. Very disappointed this year! Service is still good but food was just average/below average. Very disappointed. Won't go back.

Absolutely lovely restaurant with a charming and attentive wait staff. I had a shrimp dish made this tomatoes, onions and cheese. My only disappointment was that the shrimp were breaded, i should have clarified when I placed my order

Best meal was Sunday Brunch with so many Mexican specialty dishes to sample that we really got full! Fun to see a woman making tortillas and sopas ready for us to eat with... More

This is right around the corner from our hotel and we had been meaning to check it out but hadn't had the opportunity. We finally went on a Wednesday night and had a lovely time. Had been hoping for a good sauv blanc and found one here. Definitely recommend the quacamole app!

The owner Catalina greets you at the door and you are seated immediately, after walking by the scrumptious buffet table. A server offers coffee right away as if expecting you this morning as you wait... More
