Quiet 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 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.

Joli4/6/2013 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.
