Still the #1 restaurant in Mountain View by TripAdvisor, this traditional Spanish restaurant is famous for its tapas style servings, happening live music and bar scene, lovely interior decor, long lines (so reserve your place early by calling in or using the online system) and big crowds (rather noisy too that you have to shout during conversations). We had the... More

They have a creative variety of tapas as well as fantastic entrees, but I think the ceviche (the assortment is a great way to go) is best in class. You cant go wrong with the charcuterie plate or the variety tapas platter if you want to try a number of different things. Great for solo, groups and families.

food is OK, but i would have preferred authentic Spanish tapas. Sometimes the whole Californian fusion vibe doesn't quite work. Ambiance was good and (Spanish) wine delicious.

Cascal is a very lively restaurant and probably one of the most popular in Mountain View. It's always busy. If you expect to have a good conversation, book a table outside; incredibly noisy inside even at lunch. Some dishes are very good, such as the mushroom empanadas and the black bean soup with sherry and others, such as the ceviche,... More

This is my favorite HH place in Mountain View. I do go there about 5x a year for years now. Everything, and I mean everything on their HH tapas list ist delicious. Service is always fast and super friendly. Never had a bad experience with service or were disappointed by the food.

Really love this place. Lots of vegetarian options. Small plates means that you can try a lot of different things. Love the mushroom empanadas. Also the potato gratin

The food was wonderful. Our waiter had a smile always and made for a good evening. We were a big group as well. Selection for vegetarians is very limited. But this is not a vegetarian place. Ambience was great. Crowded and loud - but not stepping on each other. Overall good place.

Always a fun place to dine, dance, have a drink. Menu includes many tapas, salads and ceviche to create a varietal meal. Glad they have expanded their paella varieties to ones without shellfish. Warm chocolate souffle is a must-have! The hostess position seems to be a revolving door, but the service staff is superb and I recognize many from even... More

Loved the food and service. Every dish we ordered was full of flavor. It is loud but that is the ambience of the place.
