La Casita boasts a relaxed and welcoming ambience. Set in its Carbis Bay location, this family-run restaurant is incredibly vibrant and has a close team of exceptionally friendly staff.
We invite you to join us at the bar for a pre-dinner gin tonic a fino or cocktail. Relax on the terrace with a glass of fine wine sourced from small boutique vineyards in Spain and Europe. Alternatively, we have some superb Cornish and European beers and ciders on offer.
The finest fresh ingredients are meticulously sourced both locally and from Spain. This is at the heart of La Casita's menu which features paella, pizza, chargrilled meats & local seafood, vegetarian & vegan dishes. Our specials change regularly and we have a great selection on our tapas menu.
Children are welcome and have their own menu with a great selection of dishes.

We had a very good welcome when we arrived, service was faultless, food was exceptional, and we could see that everyone around us was enjoying their food as well. My paella was so tasty and full of seafood and chicken. If only we had a La Casita near where we live!

It was a real disappointment, it was the worst potato bravas ever; the staff are disinterested, the food is pretty bland for tapas. For 5 measly dishes @ adverage £9 each we had 1 small slice of bread!! Don't be fooled be the fact that you generally have to book, typical of a family business that have lost the personal touch and are trading on their original success

The food was lovely, although one of the waitresses was rude and abrupt at times. I think she needs to work on her people skills.

Very good, food full of flavour. Due to time constraints on our table the next people were due to have our table so we were moved outside for our after dinner cocktails, had the service been more timely this would not have been a problem.

Food great, lovely atmosphere, good service. We last visited on holiday 13 years ago, La Casita was a favourite each year when we visited Carbis Bay with our family. This time we sat outside with our little dog, and enjoyed it as much as ever. We wished we had booked more evenings pre holiday, as it has been fully booked all week. Thanks for the great memories La Casita.

I felt rushed during my meal which was fine as I had another appointment after dinner but normally it wouldn’t have worked for me. We like to relax when we go out which we couldn’t do that evening.

Food as always delicious. Had a bit of a runny peppercorn sauce, mentioned it and within minutes it was changed and complimented our fillet steak beautifully. Service as slick as ever. A few new members of staff all friendly and efficient. Overall a lovely evening and back there next week to do it all over again!

Catalan fish stew was lovely. The fish board was overloaded with fish but lacked accompaniments. Eton mess and churros were amazing
