    Cascal overall has amazing food. We tried the shortrib, scallop ceviche, and of course the cascal paella and everything was delicious and fresh. Definitely try the jalapeño margarita as well! A+!

    Great date place. Food is a bit expensive, but it is Mountain View so it is to be expected. Overall worth it if you are looking for a romantic evening and willing to spend some money.

    Solid tapas joint. Lots of great dishes, but don't miss the Scallop Ceviche, Roasted Chile Relleno, Lamb Chops, Beef Short Rib Adobo, & Braised Pork Belly. Read all about it on WinstonWanders below!! Read more

    In order to get the happy hour prices you have to stay in the too small happy hour holding pen inside, which is HOT if it's above 70 outside. Open up the patio for HH Cascal!

    Absolutely loved the food. For vegetarians, potato gratin and corn poblano saute are the best. Loved the banana leaf chicken too. Though the sparkling wine sangria was average.

    Definitely get the shrimp sizzlers, wild mushroom empanadas, banana leaf chicken, lamp chops. Brussel sprouts was a bit disappointing.

    Exceptional place for sangria and cocktails! Food...not that good; tapas style, lacks flavor - bland; amazing staff: very quick and pleasantly helpful!

    At this time, this is the best place for happy hour in Mountain View. All the happy hour food selections are great, and they make good margaritas here.

    At first glance, the sangria looks Manhattan-level expensive, but it's worth getting. Wicked good, and they don't overload the pitcher with ice, so you get your money's worth. Pork belly delicious too

    Latin place in the area! Very good atmosphere (loudly) with Latin music. Food is typical and wine list is good

    Deserts look incredible, but they are just average. You can see the Spanish Flan on the left picture and Caramelized Pecan Cheesecake on the right. They look way much better than they taste.

    Great dancing even though the floor is kind of small. Awesome bartenders and bar back too. Try the Mojito's. Byron behind the bar is CAF

    Paella and sangria are specialties. Ceviche disappoints. Try the mushroom empanadas and ask for the habanero salsa!

    Great place for happy hour (M-F 3:30 - 6:30). Fried calamari, mushroom empanadas, sizzling shrimp & ahi tuna are all fantastic. Try the sparkling sangria! Great live music & dancing on Fri/Sat nights. Read more

    Awesome outdoor area for a pitcher of sangria and paella. Can't beat summertime in mountain view! Avoid the ceviche...

    The place is packed so you might think the food is delicious. Great after work place for cocktails but tapas is just okay. Lamb was tough, flatbread was flavorless but liked the empanadas.

    The pork belly is good, although more pork than belly.

    All the paellas are delish! Be sure to try the tapas sampler if you can. The mushroom empanadas are TDF. Pork belly is good but portion way too small.

    Paella and octopus salad were both great. A large paella is enough to split.

    The food was OK, but the thing that I will be coming back for is raspberry virgin mojito! Perfect for the summer.

    I would not call the place a true tapas place especially in terms of atmosphere. More a mall ambiance than Ramblas, if ambiance at all. Food and service decent, although not good enough to go back.
