Very pleasant Sunday Lunch for 4

For our first visit to this establishment, we were more than happy with our choice, the food was excellent (we had the paella as main, and the pulled pork cigars as an appetizer) The service was 1st class, and they could not do enough for us. As for the value, we all agreed it was very good . the beer served in long necks was a nice throw back to earlier times, all up a very enjoyable experience, we will return. Barry Allan

Casa de Playa Overview

Housed in a charming heritage building on Main St in Mornington, Casa de Playa restaurant radiates warmth and character, luring visitors in with the intoxicating smells of heartfelt Spanish cooking. Laid out over two levels, this popular venue has been refurbished in an industrial minimalist style that sees guests filling the downstairs restaurant, an upstairs balcony and a light filled Glass Atrium located on the first floor. A Spanish inspired menu uses seasonal ingredients from local producers to create dishes like Kingfish ceviche with lime, pomegranate, gin and mint and traditional picks like paella with tender cooked chicken, chorizo, calamari, prawns, mussels and saffron paired with regional wines as well as zesty imports from Spain.

A few words from Casa de Playa

When the Head Chefs at Casa de Playa say, they "love the way the rhythm of the Spanish day revolves around food", you know there's going to be some seriously good food coming out the kitchen.
Meet Fred Keene and Steph Price – the Melbourne based power couple heading up the newly refurbished kitchen at Casa de Playa. These two know a thing or two about Spanish food; they made a sea change to the Mornington Peninsula after eating and working their way around Europe for the previous year; and they are now loving the beach life at their new home in Main Streets hottest new restaurant, bar and function venue.
"It's stylish food, to match a stylish venue"
These two are the brains behind dishes such as their Cubano Cigar, a playful take on the classic Californian Cuban Sandwich, made to look like a ‘Big Boss' Cuban Cigar.
Fred and Steph describe Casa's new menu as "fresh and full of punchy flavours" - "And that's Casa – fun, fresh and funky,". The menu is packed full of amazing Spanish-inspired options featuring a modern take on classic tapas, showcasing locally sourced seasonal ingredients - you have to try the ‘La Boqaria' chorizo - chargrilled in the Josper oven (the charcoal fired beast at the heart of this kitchen). Or try the clean, fresh flavours of the Ortiz Anchovy en Croute or the Kingfish Ceviche with gin, lime and pomegranate.
This is a place living by the ethos of sharing food and sharing conversation, while enjoying the relaxed atmosphere of the ‘Beach House'. Couple that with amazing Spanish and local wines and some of the best cocktails on the Peninsula and you know you're onto a winner for summer!!
"It's a beach house, a place to feel at home."
*Casa de Playa is more than just a stunning venue; it is a lifestyle built on passion and integrity. Hispanic in its rots, Casa is dedicated to working with local farmers and producers, sourcing only the finest ingredients and local wines to bring you the simplest pleasure of eating & drinking ‘farm to plate'.
