GREAT RESTAURANTGreat restaurant with yummy good and great ambiance. Very consistent6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThis wasn't our first timeThis wasn't our first time at Cascal- over the years, we have enjoyed many wonderful evenings with friends and family.
The staff is always very welcoming - the waite staff is there, but not hovering - the food items are many - wonderful assortment whether you are in the mood for tapas to share or individual meals such as paella - always a treat!6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMEmpanadas up to the hype!The wild mushroom empanadas were incredible, totally up to the hype! We also had the crab and shrimp tostaditos, which were stellar as well. Calamari is tasty but not as unique maybe as the other dishes.
We would have loved maybe some more attentive service, as we had to flag the waiter down several times and also got a copy of someone else's bill included in our check.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect Birthday DinnerWent here for a birthday dinner with my girls and had a perfect time, right down to the birthday cake with candle!6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMYumFood is delicious, but service leaves much to be desired. Asked for water three times before we finally got some. Food comes out fast, but is well timed with the other dishes. Definitely a hot spot for the Mountain View area, the place was packed!6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMFun Place to SocializeThe food here is excelent and the ambiance is upbeat and fun. I have gone here on a date with my husband as well as with friends and the shared food and fun atmosphere make it easy to talk and relax and have fun. The dip they bring out with bread is so good, and everything I have eaten there is somewhere between good and mind blowing. My husband doesn't like desserts but he will order them here and clean up. The cocktails and after dinner drinks are great as well. The service is a little slow, but with how good everything else is, who cares.6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, helpful serviceMy spouse and I both loved the tapas plates that we chose. They didn't all come at once, which meant they didn't get cold while we were working through the previous items. The one time we had a service problem (missing a set of utensils), another server promptly helped us out, even though it wasn't his table.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMSuch a fun place!Vibrant atmosphere, live music, creative drinks, and great tapas are the reasons I celebrate most of my special occasions here. It's very colorful, can be as casual or formal as you like, and is always a good time. I'm vegetarian, and there's a good selection of vegetarian dishes on the menu- the wild mushroom empanadas and potato gratin are my favorites. The sangria is wonderful, and I love the orange margarita. It's always pretty busy here, so it's really nice to have a reservation.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMCascal is always a hit! EverytimeCascal is always a hit! Everytime I take someone to Cascal they insist they are coming back to try all the other dishes on the menu. Their food is consistent, I am never disappointed. My guests order the humus, wich I had not tried previously. I would certainly order it again. We had the ahi tuna and sizzling shrimp - yum. Lots of wonderful flavors. You can't miss with their salads also. Inside can be a little loud during lunch but sitting outside is delightful!5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent TapasExcellent cocktails, great beer, wonderful tapas. All reasonably priced. Do it.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMA little bit of SpainAlways enjoy our meals here. It's like being in Spain without getting on a plane! Love their sangria to get started. We always order a few tapas and split paella. This time we had the eggplant tian and Serrano ham and dates. Both were delicious. Then we gobbled down a seafood paella. There was a good amount of quality seafood and the edges of the rice were perfectly crunchy. There wasn't a scrap left on the table! No time for dessert this time but, from past experience, I know it's good. Wish Cascal were closer to home as we'd be there all the time.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMA great selection of smallA great selection of small plates/tapas! Half price cocktails during a happy hour that lasts until 6:30 PM makes it possible to sample some of the creations we have tried before.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat for a date or a double dateCascal is a good place to go on Friday or Saturday nights. It has a life music, great food, and classy atmosphere.
I was there several times, with my husband and with our friends. You could find it a little bit noisy during the show. So, if you want to dine and talk - come early, before the music starts, and later, you would enjoy the show.
Food is great here. As for me, I prefer small plates or appetizers, and take 2 of these ones instead of main entry. The restaurant has a huge variety of tapas.
For our last double date with friends, we got a bottle of Pinot Noir, a sampler plate of appetizers, and 3 tapas. It that was enough, we didn't have a space for dessert.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for lots of flavorsAll the tapas dishes we had were really fantastic. We would recommend skipping the tapas sampler platter.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMSo much better!I have been to Cascal on several occasions. The management is listening!!! There staff is sooooo much more friendlier now! I love it! The food is amazing and now so is the service! I highly recommend it!5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulousWe love Cascal. So far over last few years we have made Cascal our Valentines and Birthdays treat. Love the food the Cava and Mojitos are yummy! It's a fun place and the food and service are amazing! Makes us reminisce our time we spent in Barcelona Spain. The Paealla is AMAiNG!!5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMQuiet Outside OnlyLike most restaurants in the Bay Area, this place is deafeningly loud INSIDE, so we chose to eat outside. It was a lot more pleasant and we can have a conversation without yelling. The food and drinks were great, as usual, and the service was adequate without being smothering.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMDining Close to TheatreEnjoy a relaxing drink and eats before attending the Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts event!5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMYummy Tapas and Spanish FoodThe food here was great, as was the service. The food we happened to order happened to be oily, but probably has more to do with the choices we made. Their salad was yummy!5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Tapas!Cascal has a great tapas selection. It's my first time trying the ceviche and I highly recommend the ceviche sampler trio.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat PlaceCascal's is wonderful, every time I've been here the food is delicious and the service extraordinary - We ordered off of the brunch menus (steak and eggs), and tapas Pollo Andalucia and the Banana Leaf Chicken. I can always count on a great meal. The staff was extra nice to us on Mothers day. We sat outside and they wanted to make sure we were comfortable and not exposed to the sun, so umbrella's were shifted around without us even asking. They were very kind.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMy favorite girls night out placeMy favorite girls night out place. Service is little slow because it's always busy.
Small portion plates choices are great for sharing with girls.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and locationFun spot to meet friends and enjoy tapas and sangria outside on a pleasant late spring afternoon. Other patrons were also enjoying the outside seating; couples with babies and toddlers as well as seniors with walkers, and everyone in between.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMCascal Again and AgainCascal is one of our favorite restaurants and we have eaten there for many years on special occasions and other times.
We enjoy the Caipirhnia ( a lime drink mixed with Brazilian rum over ice), ,Tapa special and Paella Marinera.
The Mojo Pork is also excellent.
The servers are very gracious and helpful.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMStill Love Cascal overallI took a friend to Cascal who had never eaten there before, and as usual, the food was delicious. I was a little disappointed in our table….I had purposely made a reservation ahead of time in the hopes of getting a nicer table. When we arrived, we were offered the only table for two that was left, right in the middle of the room.(I would have preferred a quieter side table, or one by the window….next time I will request.) Our waiter was ok…not overly friendly, and a little grumpy…but officious. An upbeat, fun atmosphere like Cascal should have waiters that at least act like they are having fun. Still, all in all, the food is great. I would also love to see some new menu options added.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMCascal Has It AllHigh ceilings with windows all around give this colorful gem an atmospheric light, and the Pan-Latin menu is refreshingly varied with offerings from land and sea expertly roasted, baked and/or marinated and dressed for exotic presentations of ceviches, tapas, paellas and other meaty delights from Cuba to Argentina and Mexico. The wait staff is spot-on, kept our plates moving and our tableaux exciting. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We shall be back!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMFun, high energy place toFun, high energy place to meet up with friends. The food is creative and the staff is attentive.
Thursday and Friday night music is great for dancing!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThe place is great, but ifThe place is great, but if you are waiting for a friend don't be seated in the back. When I arrived I told the girl in the front I was expected a friend. As she walked me back to my table, I told her I was concerned that she wouldn't know I was there. She said it would be okay because when she arrived she would tell her where I was sitting. That never happened. I waited approximately 40 minutes at the table and my friend was waiting 40 minutes in front of the restaurant. She was just able to leave (already in her car) when I called and told her I was in the back.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThe restaurant was recommendedThe restaurant was recommended by a friend. We ordered the calamari/shrimp, scallops, pork belly and lamb chop tapas, with the seafood paella. Everything was very good and of high quality. I would recommend this restaurant to all of my friends.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMI love the atmosphere at thisI love the atmosphere at this place, it is super loud so if you want a quite place don't came here you need yell to talk if you are near the bar during the live music.
The foo are great, the Tampa sampler is huge enough for 2 for dinner already be aware that everything in that plate is cold so I was disappointed about that but that was my fault I should have paid more attention. I had the seafood paella I wish it would have been spicier though it was too blend for me. Overall its great I love the crowd everyone in that place seems so happy.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and service! CanGreat food and service! Can get so loud it is hard to talk to people at your own table though.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMVery nice place, good food,Very nice place, good food, loud, we love to sit on the tables next to the bar, if only they would keep the door closed4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAtmosphere was nice.

Will definitely be back!4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMUpon recommendation from aUpon recommendation from a friend, we had dinner at Cascal. Everything was delightful. We were in town for business, and this was just what we needed to finish off a hectic day.
Our waiter was beyond nice, it was very refreshing to have such nice service with a huge smile and great recommendations for what to order.
It was all great, would be back in a heartbeat.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMJames Robinson the guitarJames Robinson the guitar player is great another good reason for going!!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a wonderful time andWe had a wonderful time and the food was fantastic. Live music is always a treat. The restaurant has a wonderful feel.
Joli4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMFriday Date with spice!I liked the decor. Noise level was high. Glad we had reservations since it was quite full. Service was prompt and attentive. Waiter Jose gave an excellent explanation how to navigate the menu. I enjoyed the Albondigas tapa, it was a little too spicy for my other half. Paella Rustica was o.k., maybe too much fat. Would try the traditional one next time. Latin band playing in the background was fun, yet no dancing?!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMTOO Loud.We love this place and enjoy the live entertainment but the music was just too loud...we could not hear each other speak sitting in the dinning room. We all left with no voice as we had to scream at each other.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMFestive and deliciousCascal is a festive place to come as a family of four. The tapas style let us enjoy a variety of delicious Peruvian favorites. The ceviche, empanadas, and pisco sours are outstanding.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous food, fast and attentiveFabulous food, fast and attentive service and a menu full of gluten-free entrees. They had be at the gluten-free. So few restaurants offer gluten-free items without making you feel like there's something wrong with you. We sat outside and the service staff made sure we were comfortable when the weather changed by moving the heaters WITHOUT BEING asked. I have a new fav spot.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experience, yummy foodGreat experience, yummy food and terrific service
Beverley3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThe music was way too loud,The music was way too loud, had to go outside, which waitress accommodated. Food is good, but do not recommend pealla.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMStill great after all these years!Cascal never disappoints. The menu hasn't really changed since it first opened, which is a good thing because they hit it right on the spot the first time. It's REALLY loud inside so we only eat there when the weather is nice enough to dine "al fresco." Service was great and a couple of appetizers and a (small) paella were really satisfying. Cascal is always – ALWAYS - busy and for very good reasons.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThe paella was fantastic!!The paella was fantastic!! My dad, who has eaten paella at many different places, said this was one of the best. We also loved the wild mushroom empanadas (my mom asked for a second order) and the beef short rib (I asked for a second order). The adobo is also a nice sampler of different meats. Our server was great--super helpful.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall, awesome restaurantOverall, awesome restaurant in Mtn.View. I've never not enjoyed being there-3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a large party and theWe had a large party and the waiter was fantastic. He made recommendations about how much food our table should order and it worked out perfectly. We will definitely go back!3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMI can't remember how manyI can't remember how many years I've been dining at Cascal. Every single time it's the same....outstanding service and the food is unbelievably good. Can one restaurant continue to be this good year over year?? My answer is yes if it's Cascal3/2/2013 12:00:00 AMFun place for dinnerI like the ambiance here- it's a fun place to go as a group. The food is tasty but on the heavier side. Cool place to stop for a drink on a night out in Mountain View.1/23/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of my fav Happy Hour spotsI mostly love Cascal for its Happy Hour. They have really good sangria, both red and white. Food is decent but nothing to write home about. Also love the fact that they take reservations for Happy Hour.1/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
