I have lived in San Juan Bautista for 21 years and have only been here once, but it was very good. I have tried to go again but they had funny hours. And now it has closed forever.

The chicken soufflé was absolutely fabulous (preceded by a delicious butter lettuce salad, and followed by a light sorbet)! I was disheartened to learn that on May 25 the present owners will retire, for well-earned rest, and that the new owners plan a steakhouse for this location.

This is a wonderful change from the usual restaurant. It is located in a historic building and has only 3 dishes. The couple who run it are very friendly and fun to talk with. I loved the blond aperitif. The setting, food, and service make it a very special place. One is surrounded by antiques. There is a delightful tasting... More

This restaurant is located in an historic house, nice atmosphere, very friendly staff, very good food, limited menu. The chicken souffle was excellent, the New California was good. Just three main course on the menu, but prepared very well.

La Casa Rosa is a San Juan Bautista institution. It is the perfect place for a cosy lunch with friends.

The restaurant is sited on the main road and in a unique building over 100 years old. There are only three items on the menu but are inspired from recipes from old California. Given this, they were quite delicious. The New California Casserole is kind of a jazzed up tamale pie with green chilies, meat and a tomato based sauce.... More

As you can see from other reviews, this small restaurant specializes on serving three "casseroles" for lunch. These are special casseroles, though, served in a historic building and accompanied by simple but elegant "treats". My mama never made anything quite like the New Californian casserole: a beef concoction in a very tasty tomoto based sauce. Served over the corn meal... More

This is family owned and operated. The menu is limited but the items are carefully and lovingly made. The owner himself is likely to wait on you and will happily share tidbits about the restaurant's history. Expensive but a very special experience.
