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.

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.

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.

How is this an Argentine restaurant? All the food is kind of Italian but not really Italian. The food was really very bad. Under or over seasoned and 2 dishes were cold.
The waitress was kind but the Maitre d’ was just HORRIBLE. Decor is beautiful but unfortunately wasted in relation to the rest of the experience.
Super pretentious and so reminiscent of the ‘to go’ places in London from the early 2000s - which are all now closed.
Good luck. We will not be back.

Oh and the average age of the other diners was about 15.

We had an amazing dinner, the service was wonderful with the hostess not willing to move our table away from the fireplace despite our arrival to the first reservation of the evening excluded.

The place has a really nice ambiance and our drinks were delicious. Totally a must go to in London.

The food is really delicious, and staff are very accommodating however our table was booked for 9.15 - we were seated with complimentary drinks at around 9.45 but didn’t actually receive our food until almost 11pm. Will definitely go again but maybe book an earlier table.

Where to start...3 tries to get a decent martini, undercooked steak AND overcooked steak, a cacio e pepe that felt like an unforgivable insult to Italy...what, did the chefs knock off early on Friday and leave some frozen meals to be heated up for the guests?

The place is beautiful with a fireplace and lovely decor. Service is friendly and prompt. The main issue we had was with food quality (burnt meat on half of the dish). At first they said it was supposed to be burnt but then we pointed out that the other half was not burnt, so was that half underdone? In the end they were very nice about remaking the burnt half but I feel that for GBP 44 for a main (with additional cost for the side) the burnt meat should not have made it to our table.

Food was lovely. The group of ladies next to us were extremely rude though. Staff were great with the exception of getting a milk based cocktail dropped on me at the end of the night from the neighbouring table.

Although I had called to make sure that we had a nice table inside, as it was a special occasion, once we showed up we were told that the table we booked was on the terrace (smoking area outdoor and without heating!!!).
After much discussion we did eventually get a table inside but of course this negotiation was not what we wanted to go through on a special occasion night

Disappointing. We booked Casa Cruz for a date night Saturday and were very disappointed with both the service and the food. The service was nice and gracious, but they were uninformed and overly attentive at the wrong times. We were seated promptly, but then they took too long to bring menus and take our water/drink orders. A waitress came around to take our orders, and she explained that the sea bass was a whole roast fish. Then just as we were nearly finished ordering, a waiter came around and the waitress handed us over to him, so we had to repeat our full order. We ordered olives and a plate of Manchego cheese from the para picar menu, and as we waited for our starters the staff came around several times to take the olives and cheese away, even though we weren't finished! A waiter also tried to take my dirty martini away before I was finished! The burrata and orecchiette that we shared as starters were good but nothing special. When our mains arrived I was surprised to find that the £38 sea bass, which I had been told was the whole fish, was actually a rather small filet! It was supposed to be served with a sauce vierge which was nowhere in sight, but we were later told that it was cooked with the sauce (?). When I told the waiter that I was expecting a whole fish based on what his colleague had told me earlier, he had the manager come around to apologise. The manager promised that he would make it up to us, but when the bill arrived everything was accounted for at full price. We paid the bill, and as we left we walked right past the manager, who either didn't notice us, or more likely ignored us.

As for other items that we ordered, the Chilean pinot noir that the sommelier suggested was very nice, and surprisingly/pleasantly cheaper than the other wines I was considering. My wife's blackened chicken was good but nothing special. Our broccoli/tomatoes/almonds side was nice, but our polenta with truffles and parmesan side sadly arrived cold.
