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.

Ordered 5 X Tapas. Specified that they NOT be served together. All 5 Tapas arrived 5 minutes later. I get the feeling they want you to eat and leave within 15 minutes. The tapas portions were small which is fine but £6 to £8 per tapas a total rip off. Will not be returning. Situated outside St Ives so probably not bothered about returning customers anyway.

Great place to visit always busy so need to book ahead. Nice friendly service and lovely food. You can’t beat a tasty paella or the the seared pork on the tapas dishes. Even my six year olds chicken had a lovely lemony flavour that he loved.
Been three times now but not yet tried the Pizzas.
Suitable for family’s and couples alike as even in a Covid world there is space for everyone.
