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.

    Disappointing - we had dinner there a few months ago and it was excellent all round. This time however this was not the case; the service was poor - we waited nearly 30 mins for the meat platter and bread starter, we had to ask for someone to take our mains order and then again had to ask for someone to take our desserts order, the mains were overcooked and dry, the only vegan dessert was no longer available, but it was still early evening. It is unlikely that we will return, sadly.

    We love la Casita. It has turned into our Christmas tradition to visit for a night of tapas. Food came out quick and food is always great. It's also nice to go for a different cuisine that you don't see much around this area of Cornwall.

    Very disappointed with our food which was all bland. No flavours to any of our dishes. We will not return to eat here and will not recommend to friends. Staff were friendly but had to repeat request for water 4 times. Appreciate this could be down to staff shortage but people coming in after us received theirs straight away.

    Visited for the first time recently, its tucked away on a side road at Carbis Bay so easy to miss. We sat on the terrace as we were dining with our dog and even though there was heavy rain it was very comfortable. Both the tapas and service was great.

    If on holiday in St. Ives do not be put off by where the restaurant is, seek it out as we had a lovely evening there. Great food, attentive staff in a nicely decorated environment. Nice to find a restaurant in Cornwall where dogs were not invited into the restaurant, dog enthusiasts are welcome but get to use the covered terrace.

    Nice restaurant with Spanish music in the background for a more authentic feel. Friendly staff. Good portion size and food tasty. Pizza for grandson defeated even his appetite. A pleasant experience.
