Casa Buenas is the newest and finest signature restaurant of Newport World Resorts offering Filipino cuisine with Spanish influences.
CASA BUENAS’ literal translation is good house. It is a celebration of what’s best in Philippine culture and heritage — from exquisite cuisine, finest architecture, and the quintessential Filipino service.
In Filipino, buenas also means luck and blessings. Here in Newport World Resorts, Casa Buenas is our house of luck. We give our guests experiences with a dash of good luck.
A fresh take on the tradition
Inspired by the ingenuity of Filipino cooking with a delicate mix of Eastern and Western techniques, Casa Buenas offers a luscious array of gastronomic dishes from appetizers to soups and salads, to savory mains, grilled meat, seafood specialties, and succulent desserts. With Chef Godfrey Laforteza at the helm, the restaurant boasts of fine Filipino food that reflects a premium and sophisticated palate, showcasing influences from neighboring Asian countries and spans to as far as Spain in Europe.
Just think of how your abuelita cooks for the whole family during reunions and Sunday gatherings.
