“Fantastic food, views, staff, atmosphere & ambiance”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

Can't fault it thanks to the great work of Cat, her husband and the staff. Great tapas, wine & PX sherry (good with dessert or cheese). This was my little secret that is no longer because I have to share this true wonder! Casita has such a relaxed vibe, it's like a slither of Europe on a plate. Go see Cat's husbands mosaic work outside with a cup of thick spanish hot chocolate with orange zest, whilst taking in the awesome sea views with the sun twinkling on the water like diamonds. Fantastic. I love you Casita.

“Great Night Out”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

We chose this restaurant for a special birthday celebration for six and we all voted it as a great choice. Four tasty tapas to start - couldn't fault the flavours but a little apprehensive about the quantity - followed by two larger raciones - we ordered an extra tapas and an extra raciones - the lamb and fig tajine was scrumptious and the pork belly was unbelievably tender. Just a couple of slight negatives - the patatas bravas was too mild for my taste and the door to the kitchen, kept open to allow staff easy access, allowed a strong breeze to cool us down a little. Mind you, the cat in the lap at the end of the evening warmed me up!

“Great restaurant”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

The restaurant looked magical at night with lights twinkling away. Great venue for an anniversary meal. The welcome was warm and friendly. The food was tasty and plentiful. We thought it was good value for money and will definitely be back. The cuddle from Mindy the cat at the end of the meal was a bonus. Thank you for a lovely night, Mark and Sally
