Just got back from Casalinga and unfortunately found the whole experience very disappointing. The food was just not up to the standard of the pricing. Starter was bland and seafood was over done, was offered pepper when almost finished. Glassy potatoes, ordered a medium-rare steak it was blue, got a steak knife half way through the meal. Ravioli described "with... More

Casalinga has had its day! Overpriced for average food and very average service. On a rainy evening one would have thought after 30 odd years of the place in business that they would have put gravel down in the car park to avoid people having to walk through mud to get to the front door. A regular patron over the... More

Meeting good friends and family for lunch is exciting as we always have so much to talk about and catch up on. Choosing just the right place could be the 'maker' or 'breaker' of the day, so when I chose Casa Linga, I held my breath for a moment as I had high expectations and expected nothing less than top...

From the booking (it was a romantic anniversary) and the confirmation two days beforehand, to the reception, the lasting impression was one of professionality. And then the food arrived, long before it was actually expected and the rest of the meal disappeared into an explosion of flavours superbly mixed by an excellent chef! Be warned... if you go there, you... More

My sister got married at Casalinga about twelve years ago, and even then I thought it was over rated. for a wedding, the venue is fantastic, as the setting and the old colonial ambience makes you feel at home. even if you have lunch on the lawn outside next to the golf course. one of my best friends invited my...

We had our wedding ceremony and reception at Casalinga recently and it was such a stunning day! Emilia, the events coordinator at Casalinga, was such a dream to work with and she made the day effortless. The food was to die for and our guests were also very impressed with the quality of the service and the food. Thank you... More
