Casa Cruz is an intimate, warm and elegant neighbourhood restaurant tucked into the leafy streets of London’s Notting Hill. Spread across two handsomely designed floors and a charming roof terrace, the core philosophy of Casa Cruz is to be a home-away-from-home for all.
The essence of our menu lies in the tastes and traditions of South American and Latin cuisines and cultures. It is a broad and rich spectrum of influences that are unified by fresh produce and full flavours that harmoniously coalesce. Moreover, the creation is anchored by a passion to share and enjoy together – a spirit that is distinctly South American, from Tijuana to Ushuaia.
Dating back to the early Victorian era, the building Casa Cruz now calls home in London was first a public house that would have been popular with passing trades. Architecturally, the exterior still maintains most of its original details, including the tall, dual aspect window cornices and surrounds on the upper floors, which were spared during the Blitz. Other parts of this historic London street were less fortunate.
When Juan Santa Cruz took over the property in 2015 the exterior was refreshed to preserve and highlight the original architectural details. The interior layout remains largely the same but the re-decoration has brought it up-to-date with Santa Cruz’s unique vision to create exceptional spaces to match exceptional cuisine. The seamless blend of the traditional and the contemporary with a fastidious eye for detail are signature hallmarks of the Santa Cruz approach.
