About

Serving a combination of Mexican-Mediterranean styled breakfast, lunch and dinner—Romesco is a culinary inspiration of Chef Javier Plasencia. Baja spices and ingredients dominate the menu at Romesco with the restaurant ladling a food concoction of hummus, tuna tapas, beef filet, beef cheek tacos, quesadillas, paella, pasta, chicken lemon and other primary native staples. The restaurant also primes an extensive selection of beverages which include beer, wine and champagne.

Comfortable chairs and tables center the dining area, while accommodating booths line the opposite extremities. The walls are heavily decorated with artwork and portraits, while inverted pendants and recessed lighting provides the right blend of illumination to add intimacy to the dining experience without hindering visibility. Romesco also features an outside seating area.

I felt that the food was very fresh and delicious. I would recommend trying the appetizers and then getting one entree. We shared three things and had the paella and honestly we were stuffed. We did save room for dessert but who doesn't.

Been to the restaurant many times. But this last time the table we sat no air was vent ailing very hot. The waiter was bad , Gustavo was his name. We returned a table salad to much dressing and he still charged us for it. Our dinner was old and dry. Never again.

Our group shared a number of tapas for our dinner. . All were delicious especially the Shrimp Tacos and the mushroom and cheese "Fonduta". I also had the Tamarindo Martini which I loved!!

Once again an exceptional meal at Romescos'. Service is always well done, with an attentive (but not hovering) staff, and a very dependable quality of meal. For me, there is no better rib eye dinner in south county. Well done, team!

I took my mother here for her birthday with a small group of 4. It was the perfect setting and magnificent food. Had a great time and can't wait to return.
