Set overlooking the Pacific Ocean with stunning views, Forbes Four-Star award winner, mar'sel offers the ideal location for an elegant dinner or seasonal Sunday brunch. Located just south of Los Angeles on the verdant Palos Verdes Peninsula, mar'sel (a play on the Spanish word for sea, mar and the French word for salt, sel) offers a decidedly inventive twist on international cuisine. Chef Fabio Ugoletti's seasonally rotating fine dining menu that features locally sourced ingredients (including citrus and herbs from the resort's grounds), as well as playful takes on culinary favorites, mar'sel combines approachable luxury with a breathtaking setting perfect for every palate.

    Excellen hidden gem. From the seafood tower that is unique and delicious, to the Banzino with crispy skin perfectly cooked, to the seabass steamed and lightly charred, this place is the bomb! You pay for what you get, but in this case, totally worth it! Highly recommend as a world class restaurant!

    Setting was beautiful and the food was excellent, overpriced maybe, but probably not for California standards. Expect to spend $300+ for a meal and a couple drinks for two, but a very nice place to celebrate a special occasion and splurge if you have the money.

    We have been here several times for special occasions and they always ensure we have a good time as well as a celebratory dessert for the occasion. View and ambience is always very nice.

    Starting with the Valet and shuttle service to ending with the meal, service was outstanding, proffessional, friendly and excellant. Food was unique and very tasty as well as pleasing to the eye.

    This is such a beautiful restaurant. It over looks the ocean and it is definitely worth the trip. Love that we could walk around the resort.

    I dined at Mar'sel at Terranea and had a fantastic experience with my sisters and niece. The service was impeccable, Jesus was attentivea and went above and beyond to ensure a memorable brunch experience. I recommend Mar'sel to anyone looking for exceptional views, food and service in a stunning oceanfront setting.

    Lamb chops weren’t very substantial, and the sauces with it weren’t all that compelling. Great view at outside tables.
