The Casa Nova Story

Begins in 1991 when husband and wife team John and Ilda Medeiros with their three children relocated from Ontario to Victoria BC to open a Portuguese restaurant.

After years of working in several restaurants and catering businesses, the time had come to establish their craft in delicious Portuguese and North American cuisine and finally call Victoria BC their “New Home”.

It was then that the name Casa Nova or “new home” was born, bringing tasty Portuguese cuisine to the people of Victoria BC.

Over The Years

The popularity of the family run restaurant soon grew and they were booking private functions that filled their restaurant to capacity. The catering aspect of the Casa Nova business was a natural progression in order to accommodate the ever increasing demand for their tasty food.

Casa Nova Catering morphed from catering small banquets into providing full catering and decorating services to functions of over 900 people. The increased business was in large part from word of mouth by their happy customers.
