Casa Tua Review
Recently we decided to go for dinner in Marbella Old Town. Each time we go there, we say “We must come here more often”. The tiny streets are an assortment of culinary delights, catering for every taste and budget. Casa Tua is one we have passed on many occasions, marveling at the setting and at how romantic it looks. With lots of outdoor seating, it feels like a backstreet in Cannes in the South or France, or even in Naxos, Greece. It is advertised as being Fine Italian dining in the heart of the Marbella’s Old Town – perfect!
There was a nice selection of wines, so we chose an old favourite Italian white, Gavi.
They brought bread to the table which was a handful of different breads, including rosemary bread, and a wafer thin crisp bread, which made a nice change. It’s the little details like different breads, that can make a huge difference to your dining experience. We were then given a lovely appetizer, a meatball in a tomato sauce with a line of pesto. It was packed full of flavour and gave us high hopes for the rest of the meal. Thankfully we were not disappointed.
For starters, neither of us could resist the seared scallops. They were served on a cauliflower puree and topped with cubes of chorizo sausage, accompanied by a summer side salad – delicious.
For main course, PJ had the fillet steak with red wine reduction, and rosemary potatoes. The steak was cooked to perfection.
Hannah had the fillet of sea bass with vegetables, on a bed of black rice. The fish was light and delicate while the rice was full of flavour, an ideal combination.
We still had enough room to share some of their homemade Tiramisu (you kind of have to when trying a new Italian restaurant, don’t you?) and it was one of the best we’ve ever tried!
We will definitely go back to Casa Tua again soon. It’s slightly on the pricey side, so the perfect place for a special meal for two. The service was spot on and the staff attentive and friendly.
