About Dia de Campo

A blend of old school and new school Mexican meets West Coast fish house and raw bar.

Día de Campo owners Chef Tin Vuong and Jed Sanford’s vision for a Mexican and seafood restaurant set in the South Bay of Los Angeles. Located in Hermosa Beach, just a block off the sand and strand, Día de Campo is a modern surf lodge, of sorts, catering to those who want to disconnect, leave the day behind and gather with friends and strangers over flavorful food and drinks. The menu has Chef Tin paying homage to the array of Mexican and Latino food he’s enjoyed growing up in LA, mostly coming out of cocinas east of the LA River, while also taking inspiration from the fish houses, oyster bars and surf shacks along the coasts of California, Mexico, Hawaii and wherever the Pacific meets the sand.

I was very excited to try this place after hearing about it from my boyfriend (he said the tacos were good) and seeing a brunch voucher for two on Travelzoo.
After being seated, the parties on either sides of our table were served with waters refilled and we still have not met our server. Finally, one of the waitresses poured us some water and told us that our server will be with us shortly with the champagne for our mimosas (included in voucher). What she brought was a flavored sparkling wine that did not mix very well with OJ, it also had a taste and you can tell that it was one of those that will give you a headache. It was not a real mimosa.
My girlfriend ordered the Dia Beni (which she enjoyed) as recommended by our server and I ordered my usual chilaquiles (it was awfully salty!). We informed her that I didn’t care for my food too much and she was more than happy to exchange it with something else. She comp’d the churros I ordered (nothing spectacular) and my friend ordered the tres leches (which she said was whatever).

Went for hubby’s birthday. We had a Travel Zoo voucher and were warmly greeted. The “Tots”are a must and the house aioli we delicious. For the bottomless mimosas, you get a full bottle of sparkling wine and a carafe of OJ so you can mix your own custom balance! We had the Dia Bene, burrito of the day and chicken and churros (their version of chicken and waffles.). All were superb. The restaurant can be loud at dinner but was very civilized at brunch. Service was lovely and we will definitely be back!!

I probably eat here 2-5 times a month. Amazing street tacos! The Sangria is the best I have ever had. Duck quesadilla is spectacular, try it even if you are not a duck fan! Great guac as well. Always great service.

Loved it! Food was delish, and we had a great birthday celebration. Excellent tacos and appetizers. We had a 8p res and they called about 10 minutes before that to say they were running late, which worked for us, but when we got there at 8:30 we still had to wait. The hostess was so nice though that it didn't matter that much to us. We were escorted to the bar and ordered delicious cocktails while we waited.

Food was great. Drinks were average which was a bummer. Food this good deserves a great margarita or cocktail and they just weren't good. Four of us had different drinks and none of us were excited about them. Would definitely go back for the food and just stick with a beer to be safe.

We go to Dia De Campo regularly. The food is really delicious (lamb braised taco machismo style is amazing) . We had some friends visiting from Sydney, Australia and they wanted Mexican food. They loved the food at Dia De Campo and raved about the Lamb Tacos, Chorizo Stuffed Dates, Guacamole, and the list goes on and on. Definitely recommend this place.

A new venue with great potential. Pleasant ambiance and an interesting menu. While the mixed cerviche was excellent, the prepared dishes, to our taste, had an unpleasant flavor. Perhaps we are too accustomed to the flavors of Mexico, and we were put off by a chef reaching for new frontiers of flavor.

Poor service in an empty restaurant. Server was busy talking with coworkers and so I had to go and break into their conversation to make my order. In fact, when we walked in, they were all in the back chatting as well. The hostess seemed annoyed she had to do her job. But there were TWO people in the entire place at that point. When we left, there were 8. “There’s your sign.”

The ambiance is very nice. The food was ok. The best thing I tasted was the Elote. When my dessert came out, i started to eat and there was a piece of wax paper in between there. I pulled it out of the dessert. I informed the waitress and she brought me another dessert. I was shocked that with a mistake like that, my dessert wasn't comped. Customer Service wasn't a priority!

I enjoy Dia Del Campo for the great flavor combinations in their plates and atmosphere. The portion size of meals vs the cost is poorly paired, meaning small sizes for high dollar amounts, but the presentation and service, as well as taste are amazing.

My first time here, on a Wednesday night, and we found metered parking withing a few blocks. The restaurant was beautiful and our server was present and helpful. The menu is creative modern Mexican. I prefer vegetarian or seafood, cooked and without egg, and I did not find many choices. An adventurous carnivore would find lots to choose from. We didn't try the cocktails or dessert, but they sounded appealing.

We went here for brunch for the first time and found the restaurant quite nice. The food we ordered; Pork Chili Verde and Chicken and Churros were amazing. There Churros are so good; crispy on the outside and soft in the inside, we ordered it as a dessert after brunch. The endless mimosa's that came with our brunch was a nice treat. We highly recommend this restaurant.

Went to Dia de Campo for my daughter's birthday. The decor is Mexican / rustic with really cool art work on the walls and around the room. My wife and I had the margaritas and they great. Very unique taste but reminiscent of traditional style drinks. The black salsa and Guac was awesome! I had the lamb chimichanga and enjoyed it immensely. Again a very different twist on a Mexican restaurant staple. The atmosphere was a bit noisy but it was a fun loving crowd that was relaxing in a cool place. Defenitely a fun place for a date! Will go back!

We had a reservation for two on a Saturday night at 8, and when we arrived the hostess tried to seat us at a table in the busy bar area, a low-top 2-person table of the bar-side of the divider between the bar and the restaurant area, where the butts of bar patrons would be in our face as we ate.

We asked the hostess for another table, as the restaurant side was less than half full, and she refused; we asked to talk with her manager and she again refused. As we were standing there, talking with the hostess, another table in the bar area (there are two tables in the bar!) was served their food -- a bar patron bumped into the server and knocked the couples' food on to the floor at their feet! Needless to say, it instantly validated our hesitation about the seating.

I'm not a picky diner, and am generally fine with communal seating or other non-standard seatings at restaurants, but this was really a non-starter for any normal person. I'd caution anyone making reservations there, and after the poor customer service in response to the situation, certainly won't be going back myself.

I would not return for a full meal, do not think the price was worth it, but wouldn't be opposed to going for maybe a drink and an appetizer.

The menu is very small. We ordered the chips and salsa. The salsa did not look appealing as it was almost black and had a course texture like the vegetables were too charred. The waitress did bring us pico which was much better. I ordered carnitas and grilled fish tacos. They had too much cabbage. My partner ordered the chorizo enchiladas and they were very good. The water was lukewarm, but the margarita was stiff! Overall, I wouldn't try it again.

This restaurant always delivers good, albeit expensive, food and drinks. My biggest dislike is the menu. The section "LA TAQUERIA" - which translates to "restaurant that serves Mexican food" - is basically the section for "Tacos" I have heard multiple people ask what it means and wonder how many just skip this section because they have no idea and won't attempt to pronounce it - to ask. The "Taco's" are small but come on hand made corn tortillas. Order more than one if this is your main course - or you're not sharing with someone intimate. The Para la Mesa section - "for the table" - has great items and should be promoted as full entrees (maybe a new section?). The "for the table" sounds too much like appetizer or tapas (which translates to "appetizer, or snack") and probably discourages people from ordering - or even going here for a full dinner. Drinks are expensive but delicious and service is excellent.
