NICE ATMOSPHERE AND FOOD

Visited Pacifica last night for the first time. We had dinner on the large and lively patio overlooking the ocean. The noise level was higher than expected for being outdoors, but not unusual for a busy warm Saturday night. Everyone enjoyed their dinner choices: scallops, salmon and ahi. The... read more

Enjoyed the food, service and view but they pack you in like sardines. Great view of ocean and it was a perfect night to sit outside so weather was perfect. Not sure if this place ever has a slow day given the food, service and view but for special occasions I would probably opt for somewhere else since it is... More

We were here on a company reward trip and the menu was set with several key menu items and everything we tasted was delicious. Filet cooked perfectly. The service was impeccable. I would definitely go back and recommend to friends.

This place is a well known romantic dinner spot, but I found that it is also a great brunch spot as well. Reservations were open, view was fantastic, food was yummy and prices were very affordable. I will be coming back regularly!

NIce ambiance with a rather distant ocean view, on the loud side, but beautifully decorated, this is one of the best for seafood in the North San Diego counties. Very good service. I had the seabass with bok choi and a slighly sweetened curry sauce and it was as it should be: good plate design, delicately flaky, and perfectly prepared.

Really good fish restaurant - calamari stater was huge! Salmon mark just as good. Place was a bit warm so choose your table carefully. Busy so best to book in advance

We enjoyed our lunch with friends, appreciated the good service and liked all our food selected from a varied menu. Pacific is a place we bring visitors because of the view, the venue and the food/

The place has a nice view of the Pacific Ocean. Extremely friendly service. Great food. A nice place for breakfast on a nice sunny day (pretty much everyday!). There is parking underneath free with validation. Coffee is excellent.

A number one restaurant in Del Mar. It's been in business for a long time and I'm sure will remain a long time. Excellent food, a little pricey but well worth every cent of it. Reservations are a must.

We had a very nice lunch at Pacifica del Mar. Their menu is very creative, and the view from the outdoor patio is great.Two dishes were excellent: the Vietnamese salad with noodles and marinated beef, and the Caesar salad with four jumbo shrimp. Well worth the $17 and $18 price, plus the olive bread was fresh and delicious. The Mulligatawny... More
