There's may not be a better restaurant in Southern California. The execution was superb and service world class. The sablefish with dehydrated kale and 24kt gold flakes was my favorite course. My date never stopped smiling. More

Never a disappointment dining at this restaurant! The food is delicous and the service is always outstanding. Luis is the manager of the restaurant and he treats it as if he were the owner. Ever single entree is better than the last. Highly recommend. More

Our festive restaurant is a “delicioso” destination for celebrating authentic Mexican fare. Family Friendly, you could say we are the “taco of the town,” but that would be putting it mildly. Spice up your life and join the fiesta at Casa Rustica!More

Discover Del Mar

With its gorgeous ocean views, beautiful weather and laid-back atmosphere, the seaside village of Del Mar, just 20 minutes north of San Diego, provides a charming and welcome escape from the fast pace of urban living. Don’t be fooled by the quiet atmosphere of this idyllic beach town. Del Mar is also home to a world-class food scene with a diverse range of cuisine. There are the cherished historic cantinas once frequented by 1930s-era Hollywood celebrities and Del Mar Race Track elites, and you can also enjoy ocean-fresh fish tacos and award-winning traditional Peruvian ceviche. Whether you're in the mood for local seafood or authentic Baja cuisine, Del Mar is as exciting and unique for the palate as it is relaxing and nourishing for the soul.
