Ate here a few times when we stayed at BV late Dec 2011 and early Jan 2012, excellent service and good food. Casual dining with excellent variety, plus kid friendly staff and food. Meet friends here for drinks and lunch plus ate here for dinner.

We took our out of town guests to lunch at 1500 Ocean at the Del Coronado Hotel. This outing is so much more than lunch -- there is the opportunity to tour one of the oldest and most beautiful hotels in the San Diego area. The restaurant overlooks "the best beach in America" according to our efficient waiter David. This... More

Great ocean-side patio restaurant. Food is simple, but elegant, service is excellent. If you like listening to F-18 Hornets roaring by, this is your place. OMG! Being located next to the naval air station is a downer, but the rest of the place is fantastic. The Del is a throwback to another era; of course the Wright Brother's plane was... More

The menu is plain and simple but sometimes that's just what you want, no nonsense, well cooked and presented food. We can recommend the fish and chips to UK travellers. The service was quick and efficient although one of the waiters had not quite got the balance right between making us feel entertained and serving our meal, too much chatter... More

The restaurant at the Hotel Del is in elegant surroundings. We sat on the patio. There were portable heaters to help keep out the chill in the air. The hostess was delightful, our server was very good. Food was paced slowly so make sure you aren't planning a quick meal. We ate dinner there. Food was very good, but not... More

We sat outside under the umbrellas with a view of the water and had an excellent lunch. The choice of two menu was a nice change with such selections as a salmon slider and a small salad. The BBQ Beef sandwich was excellent as was the seafood platter shared by two. I would highly recommend.
