My Husband & I had only been to Casa Bar for drinks previously, but was pleasantly suprised to discover they have a hidden oasis right at the back of their bar! There is a lovely terraced garden bar out the back where you can choose to dine either on the upper level or in the courtyard, the gardens are well kept and lighting is very romantic!
We both enjoyed the homemade pizzas off the menu and the service was friendly & attentive without being intrusive, even though they were also catering for a large group at the same time. Would definately recommend this as a perfect venue to meet inner city - but in a relaxing garden setting!

Having dined everywhere along Flinders Street East in the past I was a little surprised I had entirely missed the fact that Casa had a full dinner menu and table service. I had only been there in the past for late-night drinks. To say it was a pleasant surprise was an understatement. The venue features three major dining areas; a streetside dining area, great for those out for a social night with the revelers of the many bars and clubs in the area; a warm, cozy interior dining area which has a great atmosphere and keeps you out of the elements; and a quaint little terraced courtyard dining area complete with lush greenery and naive night lighting.

On our visit we chose to dine in the rear courtyard, we had a lovely table on the upper area. We received prompt service initially and the wait staff were very happy to assist us in making recommendations, telling us the specials and generally conversing. The menu is diverse, but primarily focuses around italian-style pub meals. With classic pizza and pasta items, and other favourites such as Chicken Parmigiana there is enough to suit any taste. I opted for the 'Reef and Beef' which I enjoyed immensely but was still marginally overpriced. We did have a problem with a drinks order going astray, but the waitstaff were quick to get us our drinks once we followed the matter up, and refused to bill us for the drinks, for the inconvenience.

The food was well served and portion sizes were more than adequate. The Salad was fresh and crisp, and the meat cooked to perfection. They suggest medium-rare for all the steaks, and I wouldn't disagree as the quality of the meat meant at medium-rare it was tender and juicy, and not at all chewy. (They also advise that there may be longer wait times for those requesting Well Done steak). They had a large group booking in the night we were there and seem to be able to easily accommodate very large groups of people in the rear courtyard.

I enjoyed my experience there and would definitely return and advise it to those who enjoy the kind of cuisine they offer.

The steak was good but probably a little overpriced. Can't go wrong with their 2-for-1 drinks before 7pm though.

We love going to Casa after a meal and just relaxing in the terrace garden. Their cocktail and spirits list is amazin. Always something new to try. Prices are reasonable and their specials are great. Our favorite waiter is most definitely Brent, very helpful and obliging and always up for a chat. Can't wait to get back there.
