Casa Cruz is set over two floors with a unique first floor terrace
for drinks and dining. Guests can relax after dinner by the fire place or continue to work through the tequila list at the bar on the ground floor.


The menu at Casa Cruz is styled on a home away from home. It is an intelligent blend of Argentina, Chile, New York and Europe.

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 restaurant has such a cozy and romantic atmosphere. My husband and I had a wonderful date night here but I've also been here with groups of friends and family and it's been perfect for a more intimate occasion that deserves a bit fancier of an evening. The food is delicious, the wine menu is very good, and the staff is amazing! My only complaint is that one evening we were there and I was told they smoke their own meat, which is wonderful! However, the smell was so strong I went home smelling a little bit like a camp fire. Outside of that I have no complaints, only compliments about this restaurant!

I had been longing to go here for a while but somehow hadn’t managed it. It seems we were definitely the wrong side of the curve on Tuesday night!

6 of us squashed onto a tiny table - cosy is ok, but when the food all comes in serving dishes and left on the table it was chaotic. Two starters appeared which we hadn’t ordered. One main course arrived 10 minutes after the others and the vegetables, my very expensive rib eye steak arrived well done when I’d ordered medium rare...

And it was EYEWATERINGLY expensive. Especially given above comments.

Maybe this was just a bad night but given the cost of Casa Cruz and the out of the way location it needs to be super slick to get repeat business’s. I won’t risk it. Shame.

Was one of the worst experiences. It’s was my fires birthday we arrange on time. They inform us that the owner friend showed up and they had to give him our table n we had to wait for 45 min with out even being seated. And to make it worst at check in she even wish my friend happy bday.
So unprofessional. Worst service ever.
