Casa Cruz is an intimate neighbourhood restaurant and bar in London’s Notting Hill. The menu is inspired by South American cuisines, interpreted with a European sensibility.

Set over two floors with a first-floor garden terrace and a handsome open fireplace, Casa Cruz is an intimate, inviting and warm establishment. Nestled between Notting Hill and Holland Park in west London, the restaurant is a boldly elegant home-away-from-home that is set to open an outpost in New York City in late 2020.

Casa Cruz is the flagship brand in the Santa Cruz Company, including Isabel in Mayfair and Nathalie on Hanover Square

Really great dining experience. Host was very welcoming and we were showed to our seats immediately. We ordered some nibbles to start which worked well with the cocktail recommended by our waiter. We ordered the ribeye and some sides for our main course and the steak was done perfectly! No sauce required as the steak was full of flavour. Decor inside is also very impressive. Brass bar in the middle of the restaurant is very nice to look at. Overall, the dining experience was very much enjoyed by both my wife and I. We were there for Valentine’s Day and felt like we were spoilt. We even got a little petit 4 on the house after the meal which was a nice touch. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to impress a date or just have some good food. Thanks Casa Cruz

Good food interesting decor. Had two good mains. Service was responsive and helpful. Something about the place challenges it but couldn’t put my finger on it. Good one try restaurant but doubt I would rush back.

It feels so cozy and intimate, like being in a beautiful home. The lighting is warm and the space is stunning. Great music too. I think the menu could be more innovative - if you don’t want steak the choices (although numerous) aren’t too inspiring. But i would still go back anytime as i just love it there and staff are wonderful too.

Il ristorante e molto bello ed il servizio ottimo.
Eravamo venuti per la carne loro piatto forte la siamo rimasti molto delusi.
I piatti sono arrivati freddi medium rear ed abbiamo evidenziato il problema : soluzione li scaldiamo!!!
La qualità della carne era non giudicabile in quanto scaldata
Peccato

Expectations were high as such a lovely setting. However I expected much more. After ordering the Dover sole I was shocked to find it was was way over seasoned with too much salt. With the cost of it being £42 I would have expected much better.
With J Sheekey prices are the same however their sole is faultless. With Casa Cruz- you could not even taste the fish.. even though it was perfectly cooked. It was very disappointing

they left us waiting for our table for an hour, they didn't even give us a drinks menu or any snacks. They took us to the terrace, told us to wait 10 minutes for our table, after an hour of waiting we decide to ask what's going on, they tell us they don't have a table for us (even though we had booked a table 4 days in advance). After some complaining, they finally give us a table and then proceed to tell us we have to order asap because the kitchen was closing in 20 mins. Horrible service.

We have been to Casa Cruz a few times. This time the food was very disappointing. We had a whole artichoke as a starter and a beetroot salad both were bland and the dressing for the artichoke was like mayonnaise. The blackened chicken was very spicy and salty and the sauce was very thick. The filet steak was cold and the meat was very chewy and fatty in a bad way. The side orders were ok with the exception of the corn which was a bit soggy, all of this for 200£ With a beer and a whiskey is way too much.

Had a truly lovely evening here for our anniversary dinner. The service was exceptional as they had noted it was our anniversary. Food excellent with a wide choice and a very good wine recommendation with our steak - not too heavy.
Busy restaurant with nice outside terrace area.
We will definitely go back soon.

We know the place we have been here twice before, on Saturday 31st the food was totally Average unfortunately, starters not good I think we did the wrong choice and the meat so disappointing, I chose beef filet and I didn’t finish, potatoes were average We loved it the first time, however we are very disappointed 😞 I think they are growing too fast. We felt that we needed to go we didn’t order a desert. We just left as another couple was next and were not welcome to order a desert, not good feeling...

Overall a very good experience - it was slightly annoying to be told at the start that we had 2 hours until our table was to be given away and then at the end, before we had paid, we went up for a cigarette and came back to find our table had been cleared and given away to the next guests

Yes I would recommend although I would also warn of the overly high price tag. Food was good and wine selection fine. Service was very attentive except for if you are on the terrace in winter where you might get forgotten... Overall, a good experience but feel the value should have ben at least £100 lower than our bill.

This is a beautifully designed restaurant. The service was impeccable. The food is simple but done well and generous portions but it is exceedingly overpriced for what it is.
