Casa la Tida Mediterranean Tapas Cafe Restaurant Nakadomari Reviews
Casa la Tida カサ ラ ティーダ Restaurant and Wine Bar Mar 28, 2008
Casa la Tida カサ ラ ティーダ has excellent food, a wonderful view, wine bar and an extensive wine selection, plenty of room including group, outdoor, indoor and multiple private dining areas in a Spanish-style interior. Western-style seating and traditional tatami mat floor cushion seating are available. The menu and wine list are available in both Japanese and English. They even have FREE WI-FI internet access!
Large selection of jazz records and juke box in the bar area. Awamori storage and tasting is also a Casa la Tida specialty. A trained sommelier on staff with a huge wine cooler and red wine selection including European, South American and South Australian wines. Wines can get a bit pricy, with a 2005 Windham Estate Bin 555 from South Australia running about 4,000 Yen ($40 USD), but keep in mind wine is not normally carried at most Okinawan restaurants. Other hotel wine lists will price European wines well above 100,000 Yen ($100 USD).
This is our favorite place in Okinawa to have a party or sample a wide variety of Mediterranean tapas-style food with an Okinawan flair. The owners and staff are very friendly and helpful. Service is always superb!
We've had three huge parties in the group dining area...fantastic setting for up to 30 people. The views of Nakadomari Beach and Maeda Point.
My favorite appetizer tapas is the Okinawan Beef Sashimi. This is thin slices of Okinawan corn-fed raw beef, soaked in olive oil, and topped with large shavings of Parmesan cheese. All three pizzas were good, although the shrimp and oyster with basil pizza may be a bit unusual for some tastes.
When we lived in Nakadomari from 2003-2005, we went to Casa la Tida every weekend for food and drinks until 0300L so we could stumble home. During our visit and another huge party in March 2008, we noticed the place is no longer open past midnight, even on weekends, which was slightly disappointing but definitely still open later than anything else in the area.
For your next big party or cozy evening sipping wine, be sure to select Casa la Tida Restaurant and Wine Bar for your special occasion--you won't be disappointed!
