Veladora. Where coast meets ranch. Where sun dappled afternoons fade into lantern lit evenings. And where all things fresh, handcrafted and simply delicious reside.

An extensive wine menu of over 600 selected wines is on hand for sipping and savoring, as well as a welcoming private wine room featuring our rarest bottles for the most special of occasions.

The culinary team's farm-to-table philosophy is infused throughout Veladora's program, featuring local produce and herbs, flowers and honey cultivated and foraged right on property.

Lovely setting, food and menu top tier, service a bit slow but polite and knowledgeable. A remote and slightly challenging location to get to, but worth the wandering back roads.

What a beautiful special spot! The food was so fresh and amazing I have never had bread that tasted this good!! It was such a treat all the way around, the best part of all was our incredible waiter who was so professional and friendly as well as attentive! I could tell the people at the next table were buying bottle after bottle of wine while we brought our favorite bottle to celebrate my birthday. Our waiter treatest us as if we had bought the best wine they had to offer! We will be back! Great place!

The dinner meal was exceptional for all 3 of us. Very fresh ingredients in the salads. The Rib Cap steaks met all of our specifications- outstanding quality meat. The irish salmon was very delicate- my wife indicated she has ever had.

We frequent this restaurant at least every 2 months- it seem better each time-if that is possible.
