You cannot go wrong with this quaint little restaurant tucked away in the Ironbound section. I have yet to go there and be disappointed, better yet no one that I have taken there has been disappointed either. Take your taste buds and try this place out. You will find you won't be disappointed either. Y la senora de la casa... More

I hate to admit it, but I just figured that its been about 10 years since I was last at Casa Vasca. When you live 80 miles away its hard to get here often. Today, after an afternoon event in South Orange, my companion and I were deciding what to do next. I suggested lets have dinner in Ironbound. He... More

My wife and I dropped our kids at Newark Airport and made a bee line to Casa Vasca for dinner. It was nothing short of fantastic. The food was delicious and the service was great. It was a very crowded Friday night but we were seated exactly at 9pm, our reservation time. As soon as we sat, we were greeted... More

Was sent to this little restaurant by someone whose opinion my wife respects. Easy enough to find, just inside the ironbound section. Parking is free and presided over by a older gent who is particular about the allocation of the space-i passed the exam, with a smile. Walked into a bar,and immediately wondered where I was going to sit,since the... More

Delicious Spanish food. Meal comes with free bowl of soup, (wish they are hot instead of lukewarm). Good service. Very reasonably priced.

The food and service here were excellent! My wife and I went for lunch and really enjoyed it. They start you with a complimentary soup. The day we went it was Leeks and Potato. We then shared Shrimp in Garlic. The bread they give to the table was very good especially when dipped in the garlic sauce. We both ordered... More

Stopped in Saturday night with the family. The chickpea soup and chorizo soup was excellent. The chicken with garlic was good but not great. A little cramped but overall had a nice meal.

Fresh and steamed vegetables are served. Food is well-seasoned, but not heavily seasoned. The soups are excellent; they come with the main course at no extra charge. Main courses have big portions. Fresh and warm Portuguese rolls are served. The appetizer may be ordered in half or full portion; it is in itself a meal! The pleasant and attentive owner... More
