OUTSTANDING!

We visited Pacifica for lunch a few days ago. Sitting on the deck provides a lovely view looking out over Del Mar to the ocean. The salads and main course selections were excellent and dessert was a perfect compliment to and outstanding meal. I would highly recommend Pacifica!

Set the stage - 20th wedding anniversary dinner. Made a reservation 2 weeks out for 7/25/2015, instructed restaurant that it was 20th anniversary; asked for an ocean view table. Arrived at Pacifica Del Mar - hostess acknowledged from the reservation that it was 20th anniversary, but no ocean view tables available, no rail tables, only patio tables (obviously not feeling...

The Pacifica was the first place I had breakfast when I moved to SD. The cappuccino is delish and the view is unbeatable! They have a variety of options from basic eggs and bacon to decadent brioche French toast with a vanilla sauce. Open seating and good for kids and pets.

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful anniversary dinner at Pacifica Del Mar after hitting up the Del Mar Racetrack for 4 O'Clock Friday. There are a lot of options for fine dining in Del Mar and most of them have great views but I chose Pacifica Del Mar based on the excellent reviews here on Tripadvisor. This restaurant lived...

We have been to Pacifica a few times. While not on the ocean, you do get great views of it. The restaurant is located in Del Mar plaza on the second floor. The plaza itself is up a hill from the ocean so the views are good. Service and food has been better than average and we will definitely be... More

This was our 3rd time dining at the Pacifica Del Mar restaurant. If you dine on the outside patio you have a nice ocean view. The food is consistently very good. The service excellent and the wine list will satisfy most. Overall, it has been a very enjoyable experience.

This is a quaint café on the second level which overlooks the ocean. They're open early so you can get your coffee fix while people watching. I recommend the Eggs Benedict or Chef's Lox and Bagel.

- The view overlooking the Pacific. It just can't get better that this. Restaurant vibe is CA casual - Busy yet very attentive wait staff. Chris was great - clear suggestions about the evening's recommendations without being pushy. - Seafood - fabulous! We started with Chris' appetizer rec. of scallops on crab cakes. To die for. Mixed greens house salad... More
