Kainan Na!

Casa Marina's Bell Tower

Start with the most important meal of the day. Have breakfast at Casa Marina. Casa Marina serves Spanish, Filipino and Continental fare to guests and visitors. Enjoy a magnificent view of the renowned Pagsanjan River, the Cavinti Mountains, and Mt. Banahaw. Savor the sights as you indulge in the local flavors.

Casa Marina takes pride in its breakfast spread but if you must have just one then the Bangus is a runaway winner!

Check Out our Menu here.

Hana Japanese Restaurant

Japanese in Pagsanjan? Yes please! Hana is one of the oldest restaurants in Pagsanjan Laguna. They've been around even before the term Foodie came into fashion.

Its almost 2 kilometers from Casa Marina so be sure to make transport arrangements. Our inn keeper is the key!

Tip: The Katsudon is amazing! Thick cut pork with the most delicious katsudon sauce.

El Panchitos Fil Mexican

El Panchitos is  located on 661 Mabini St., Pagsanjan. Its a leisurely 12 minute walk from Casa Marina. You can also take a tricycle, there is a trike stand just outside our property.

El Panchitos offers Mexican Cuisine with a fusion of Filipino flavors. This actually works given that the Philippines and Mexico were former Colonies of Spain.

Tip: Anything Pork and grilled will work :-)

Calle Arco Restaurant

Calle Arco is  probably the restaurant that started the food revolution in Pagsanjan. Calle Arco offers traditional Filipino Cuisine at affordable prices. If you crave for that lutong bahay, then this is it. Calle Arco is a short 8 minute walk from Casa Marina.

Must Try: The Crispy Pork Kare-Kare with Rice of course! This is deep fried pork belly smothered with rich and creamy peanut sauce and comes with local vegetables.

Lolo Tuge Restaurant

Can you say "Hào chī"?  Because that is exactly what you're gonna get at Lolo Tuge's Restaurant. Super delicious Chinese Cuisine with some of the freshest ingredients! Lolo Tuge has riverside dining as well which is great to enjoy the river scenes while gorging on a Chinese feast.

Lolo Tuge is on General Luna Street,  just  an 8 minute walk from Casa  Marina.

Must Try: Lemon Chicken is to die for! Crispy battered jiucy Chicken on a bed of sweet and tangy lemon sauce... Hào chī!

Kamayan at Palaisdaan

Kamayaan at Palaisdaan in Bay Laguna is one of the must visits during your trip to Laguna. You pass by this restaurant on your way to Pagsanjan.  Guests take their meals on  huts floating around a man made lake filled with different kinds of fishes endemic to Laguna.

Must Try: Everything here is good but you just can't leave without trying the Ginataang Tilapia (Tilapia cooked in Coconut Milk). Ask for the spicy version for a different take on this dish.

Arabela Liliw

Arabela Liliw is another one of the well established restaurants in Laguna. Its been around for more than 20 years and has delighted its customers with Italian Cuisine tweaked for the Filipino taste. Its a bit of a drive from Casa Marina but well worth it.

Must Try: The Sirloin Fettucine is to die for! Be sure to leave space for dessert. Arabala has some of the best cakes in the province. 

Si Christina Gateau Sans Rival

Si  Christina Gateau Sans Rival is a quaint little restaurant/ cafe right in the heart of bustling San Pablo City. There is no parking so make your way to the plaza where you can park your car for a small fee. Then walk just a few meters to Si Christina Gateau where you will be rewarded with the most delectable Sans Rival in these parts, possibly rivaling those in the Metro as well.

Tip: The pistachio cashew Sans Rival has no rival.

Tentay and Idang Ube Halaya

On your way back from San Pablo, be sure to pass by Tentay and Idang Ube Halaya for some pasalubong (take home treats). Their Ube (Sweetened  Yam) is a must have in these parts. Your family and friends will love you for this wonderful treat!

Happy Hour at Casa Marina

Honestly, it's always 5:30 somewhere in the world, so why not enjoy a cold beer, a refreshing sparkling wine, or a rich red whenever the mood strikes? At Casa Marina, we offer a handpicked selection of wines, imported beers, and premium spirits from our cabinet.

Tip: Ask our Chef to prepare Tapas/ Appetizers to pair with your chosen poison.
