A wonderful and atmospheric restaurant. Greeted by very friendly and happy staff who served us well all evening. Food was delicious and fresh. I asked if a dish on the specials could be adapted to suit a pescatarian diet and this was sorted with no issues. Definitely will be going back and would highly recommend for dinner with friends, family... More

Arrived without booking but were found a table. Mediterranean (mainly Spanish) menu with several "specials". We had lamb tagine - plenty of lean tender meat served with mashed sweet potato & side salad - & sole which was well presented with a great choice of potatoes - settled on saffron. Desserts - Spanish almond tart & churro with chocolate sauce... More

We went to La Casita whilst staying in the area. The restaurant was a short stroll from where we were staying which meant no one had to drive! We hadn't made a reservation but we were quickly shown to a table and given menus. There was a good choice and several specials to tempt us. Service was very good and... More

9 of us went for my husband's birthday. The staff were great, and I had the lemon sole which was to die for! We had an amazing time. If I was being picky, the cocktails took a long time to be made, and even though we ordered 3 margaritas, they were all made separately. So by the time the third... More

Don't be put off by the outside 'slightly cheesy' look or the location on the main road into St Ives - the food, atmosphere and service were excellent - and very authentically Spanish. Great specials menu, lots of fresh fish ideas and traditional Spanish dishes too, Tapas was amazing. Has a bar area so just drinks and snack are available... More

Decided to try this restaurant for its 2017 opening night on Feb 10th and were not disappointed. The layout and lighting was just right and the staff welcoming and gave enough care without being over the top. A good menu with something for everyone. Prices are at the upper end but we did feel it was worth it. It was... More

I'm not sure how a mediternian restaurant came to be in Carbis Bay but this is the real deal. The menu is varied and there was no shortage of dishes to try. I had belly pork with bean broth which I would definitely go back for. We were so impressed we booked for New Years eve when I had a... More

Mind blowing food, amazing service in a great and warm environment. Great tapas, authentic and quality produce. Everything we had was incredible. We could have been in one of the best restaurants in Spain.

Description
La Casita is a restaurant with a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, serving tapas and dishes inspired by the flavours & produce of Spain, Italy and Portugal.

If you enter a Mediterranean restaurant and you will note the mood is relaxed, colourful and anything but stuffy. The waiting staff are genuine and friendly and families are always welcomed;

La Casita is a new restaurant in Carbis Bay that adopts this relaxed and welcoming atmosphere, serving tapas and various dishes inspired by the flavours & produce of Spain, Portugal & Italy. The menu is complemented by charcuterie and cheese boards and we have a wide selection of excellent wines and beers.

We’re all about fantastic and tasty rustic dishes. We work hard to find the best ingredients, which are meticulously sourced from producers, both locally , in Italy and Spain, who share our ethos and take enormous pride in what they do.

Flexibility and a casual atmosphere is key to La Casita. Customers can enjoy a full meal, selection of tapas dishes: or come in simply for a glass of red wine and a plate of cheese, a coffee and a delicious pudding, or even just for the perfect evening cocktail on the patio.
