    Beautiful restaurant, lovely staff and spectacular food! Very happy I have finally come to try the Casalinga restaurant. They did not disappoint one little bit.

    Hi, lovely as always, although I think the wait staff were all quite new and nervous, at times over-attentive and at others nowhere in sight. And most diners seemed to be stuck in the white room - I know it was a hot night, but spreading us out through the restaurant might have made for better comfort. Finally, the Portugese custard tart - the coffee granita was mostly melted by the time it was served which meant the tart pastry was soggy - perhaps the granita could be served in a small bowl/shot glass?

    Friendly service, and quick. Large main meal serves. Eclectic menu with flavours from many differing countries which was surprising. Nevertheless all very tasty

    This is a wonderful restaurant, as the menu has lots of Gluten Free options. I’ve never had a bad meal here, and the service is excellent. Staff is friendly and courteous. Well done, we’ll be back.

    Has an interesting specials menu with at least one dish a little different from the norm. My partner has had the vegetarian plate several times and always enjoyed it.

    A fine establishment. Food, service and atmosphere superior to most local options. Not expensive for what you get.

    We last visited this restaurant 18 months ago and enjoyed a wonderful evening, but something has changed as the main meal was very ordinary, we are unlikely to return.

About the restaurant

Clever creations Casalinga’s charming black and white facade glows in the night and tempts you in at all hours of the day. Inside it’s both smart and cosy, with modern steel-coloured feature walls and cute wooden furniture. Their amazing chef, Andrew Abrams, has had a world of inspiration that spans Asia and Europe. He cooks up Casalinga’s delightful fresh and modern fare with creativity and style. This includes the must-try ocean platter, which includes fancy stuff like oysters and lobster, crumbed prawns and even (yes, you’re about to read this correctly) crocodile croquettes. That’s innovation! Chef Andrew highly recommends the giant tortellini with black garlic and pumpkin mousse, an incredible treat if ever we’ve had one. Finally, top off of your lovely meal with a jumbo éclair, the likes of which you’ll never see outside of Casalinga. It’s BYO wine here folks, so stock up and come in for the fantastic fare. You’ll love the clever food and nice atmosphere at Casalinga. Best dish: ocean platter
