This is one of our favorite restaurants in Del Mar. The food and service is always excellent. I definitely would recommend making reservations. Also, try the happy hour. They have a very good menu too.

wine was on the expensive side. The burger and salad my wife ordered featured a very tasty burger cooked to medium perfection. However, the bun was definitely stale. The Caesar salad she chose for her side was quite good...we shared:-) I ordered their Turkey burger with fries. Unfortunately the bun was also stale and when you try to eat a... More

i read your review on trip advisor regarding the stale breads on both of your meals. no excuses, we blew it. this is a quality control problem and several employees should have caught this. i can assure you this is not the norm. the french fries i have not heard negatives on but will look into it. if you will...

Evening out with the husband. We used to hit this place with friends for drinks before kids came along. We came back for a quiet dinner out. Saturday night require reservations, which we didn't make but plenty of space was available in the comfortable and quieter bar area, which was excellent. We looked over the bar menu (which has 50%...

I celebrated my dad's birthday here with my family for dinner and it was a great evening. There is always a great energy in the restaurant with people but not too crowded. I enjoy sitting on the patio day or night. The lighting could be a bit better at night but it's peaceful. The service is always great and our... More

It is a bit pricey but who cares when one is celebrating a special occasion or just wanting a beautiful evening. There is seating with a 180* view of the western edge of the Pacific Ocean. Ample parking, stroll in luxurious stores and feel the ambiance of a charming beach town. Ask for Scott....a professional and talented waiter that will... More

Whether it's lunch or dinner, you will not be disappointed. The service is wonderful and the food spectacular. One of my favorite things to order is the salmon salad they serve during lunch. Also, their olive bread is delicious. When you call to make reservations, try to get a table in the patio.

After reading a YELP review that gave Pacifica Breeze Cafe high marks for breakfast and lunch, my husband and I were sorely disappointed in everything but the view--can't beat the Pacific Ocean. Like a previous review of the Glacier Lodge...visit but don't stay. First of all, it doesn't have an adequate kitchen, so it sends all orders (eggs, pancakes, etc)... More

I figured we would be spending $50/plate b/c isn't every dinner option $50/plate in Cali? I was quite pleased to be wrong. If you arrive before 1800, you may get a seat on the patio with a million $ view. Furthermore, order by then and get a $23 special. Salmon was amazing; well balanced sweet and spicy. I've never had... More

Great service and food. The menu items have a touch of Japanese cuisine but is not over done. They also have good ole American food. We celebrated many life events there and keep coming back.

We had a wonderful lunch on a glorious, sunny day at the beach. We sat on the covered patio on the second floor overlooking the ocean. Our server summed it up best - when I mentioned how beautiful it was to be on our side of the table soaking in the view she smiled and said; "Welcome to my office."... More
