Cafe Castro Nova - Lakeway, TX
website and menu             

Here's a cozy little spot for a classy dining experience.  Cafe Castro Nova in Lakeway at the Lakeway Commons Shopping Center is an American restaurant, despite what the name makes people think.  This place is perfect for lunch or dinner out with your significant other.  (The atmosphere is calm and comfortable with a little soft romantic music to set the mood.)  It's a first rate restaurant featuring a  number of wines and an inventive, unique menu. 

You'll start off with a great appetizer... and we recommend the "Seared Ahi Tuna & Cucumber Salad".  A seared Ahi Tuna steak with a citrus-champagne vinaigrette and a cucumber salad with avocado, red onion, tomatoes and a balsamic vinegar.  We thought it was a fantastic presentation and very flavorful.  If tuna is not your thing... try the Fire Roasted Artichoke, Calamari, Roasted Red Pepper Hummus or several other interesting appetizers.

Our favorite dishes... the Chicken Oscar and the U.S.D.A. Prime Fillet Mignon.  The latter a super tender and juicy fillet served with absolutely delicious garlic mashed potatoes and the bacon is wrapped around perfectly cooked asparagus.  (mmmmm)  The Chicken Oscar is moist chicken breast seared and served with homemade Hollandaise and topped off with a little bit of hand pulled crab meat and asparagus. (You MUST try this one)

You'll also find pastas, lamb, fish, Alaskan Snow Crab, a couple of mexican and cajun entrees and more.  Plus, we found that Cafe Castro Nova has a sizeable selection of desserts to choose from. (a little more than average for this size of restaurant)  And they serve brunch on weekends.  Try the Eggs Benedict.

After dinner you can slide into the attached Cigar and Martini Lounge called the Casbah @ Castro Nova.  This relaxing spot attached to the restaurant was intended for their own private use and is now available to the public.  Instead of tables with hard chairs you'll sit back in a comfortable couch or chair and have a cocktail and maybe a stogie.  (Smoke 'em if you got 'em)
