Descanso Gardens is not, repeat not, a restaurant! It's a beautiful garden, as SPELLED OUT IN ITS NAME, particularly known for its camelias, azaleas and old roses.

It is one of my favorite places in the area. I like to go here in the mornings when the air is so fresh. I was gifted with a membership card and it became very handy!

Brought the kids on a Monday, too bad there was no tram or train service... But other than that it is a nice place to walk and enjoy the different plants and flowers. Loved the Japanese garden, and these garden. We will definitely be back next spring!

we're members; the lunches at the park are well prepared; they have wine; it's a great place to visit. Not sure why it's listed in the Restaurant Section here... but it's really a must visit botanical garden spot.
