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.

Lovely authentic tapas. Really enjoyed the octopus, red pepper hummus and the pizzas were delicious. Staff superb, having to work under a bit more pressure as they are short staffed but it didn’t affect the service. We will definitely revisit!

Food was beautiful quality and just the right amount to feel full, although my partner shared a paella and was more than full. Got to say, the steak cooked perfect. The staff were all so friendly and helpful too. We will be booking again and would definitely recommend to friends.

We had a lovely meal, there was a lot of choice on the menu and the ambience was fabulous. The staff were friendly and efficient. Our food came quickly and was very tasty.
( It was also good with Gluten Free choices, after being turned away from most places in St Ives all week, this was a relief. )

Excellent evening meal. Friendly and helpful staff. Would definitely recommend. We were staying in St Ives so caught the train to Carbis Bay - just £2 for a return. The restaurant is about a 10 min walk from Carbis Bay station.
