Prepare for more than a few magnificent surprises as you dine at the exquisite Veladora restaurant. Taking inspiration from Rancho Valencia's Mediterranean influences, Veladora serves fresh, handcrafted and simply delicious Coastal Ranch cuisine for breakfast, lunch and dinner. All in an inviting hacienda atmosphere, where sun-dappled afternoons and stunning valley views fade into captivating candlelit evenings. Our talented team of chefs let the true flavors of seasonal ingredients take center stage on a menu that blends a bounty of fruits and vegetables with unique pairings of seafood, poultry and varieties of meats. Sample slow poached Maine lobster with a lemon vinaigrette, burratta cheese, and pickled and roasted beets with avocado. Or savor a slow pan roasted filet mignon. The choices are abundant. And abundantly delicious.

    Great atmosphere, classy yet casual vibe, went with my friend and we had a good time; the food was on par and the service was exceptional. I will be back if not for the scrumptious brunch foods and service, then for the gorgeous views!!!

    The food and wine pairings were great, especially the rabbit lasagna. We were impressed that the busboy help someone in our party to install Instagram on their iphone!

    Amazing service from beginning to end. Every staff/service member was extremely professional, polite, and knowledgeable. The food and drink were amazing; down to every little detail. Definitely on the more expensive side, but worth every dime when the service and food create a true dining “experience”.

    I had not been to Rancho Valencia in quite a while, and so Veladora was a real surprise but a warm and elegant one. The service was absolutely personal, solicitous, and delightful and the food unique, creative, and delicious (octopus starter, lobster risotto, Iberian pork). We most certainly recommend and will return!

    Start to finish one of the best meals ever! Our waiter knew our food preferences from visits a couple years ago - even though we had never met him, nor had we ever formally made any requests - our prior waiter listened and noted it in our reservation. Paying attention to details like that only make the already amazing food and experience that much better. Well done Veladora!!!
