The place was choc-o-bloc on weekend night.A testimony to popularity of the place. The tapas food was indeed good and cocktails well made.

Cascal is one of my favorite spots! Dinner and drinks after work, girls night, whatever. Food is awesome, drinks are good. It is always crowded so make reservations or be ready to wait. Very vegetarian friendly (with a lot of really good options).

Last weekend with a large family gathering our service was just pathetic. Just embarrassing! 15 minutes between visits by our waiter (brown hair, maybe 30, beard, pretty.) We tried to keep a list of everything we wanted to order in the next round, so that we wouldn't miss anything on his rare visits, but inevitably glasses went dry and we... More

The food here is consistently good. I love the meatballs and their ceviches. If you go with friends who like to drink and eat be prepared for a large bill. An average meal here will be in the 30s per person. I find that two tapas per person is the minimum needed.

Cuban Spanish food. So good. The service is great and the food taste so good. No need for salt and pepper shakers here. The scallops and shrimps are amazing!

This is the first place we go for happy hour in downtown Mountain View, great drinks and great appetizers for Happy hour prices. I would highly recommend. The sangria drink was excellent, along with the Mojito and margarita. Their Tapas are great. The banana leaf chicken, fried Calamari, potatas Bravas and the seafood Ceviche,

Ate here last evening with friends. Picked this place based off Trip Advisor reviews. We were out for an early dinner (around 6pm) and requested to eat outside. We were the only ones out there for a good 45 min. This meant we were able to talk freely and catch up with friends. We were asked if we had reservations... More

We had a good dinner at Cascal on a Wednesday evening (reservation is recommended for groups of more than 4 for dinner). Our server was friendly and did not push us to order more dishes than we could consume. Depending on who your table is next to, it can get a little bit noisy indoors. There was outside seating with... More

My wife and I have been here a few times. It's a fun and lively place with an outdoor patio. Drinks are good and interesting, and the food is high quality. On a street with tons of options this is one of the better ones, but not the best in terms of value.

Ate here with friends last weekend. The queso fundido and crab tostaditos were excellent. We shared a seafood paella that was also really delicious. The music was really good too. Highly recommend Cascal!
