Great food, great service! Definitely stop by here

This place was amazing. For starters, the proprieters at my B&B had called in a reservation for 1 for the bar area - and even though Del Mar doesn't typically hold bar reservations, they knew my name when I walked in and seated me immediately. The food was AMAZING, the bartender (and even other... read more

My husband and I spent a very good evening at the Del Mar Bistro. It was a very busy restaurant obviously very popular with a nice, friendly bustling atmosphere. The Wood Roasted Cod with lump crab, creamed corn and peas was delightful. A true taste of the sea! My husband enjoyed the Pizza with Fig,Goats Cheese and Prosciutto.

Hubby and I ate here for the first time on a busy summer weeknight. We arrived at what we thought was an early hour, but this place was already packed. We lucked out, though, with two seats at the bar, which is spacious, deep, and well suited for dining...there is even a wait list for those who want to dine... More

The best meal we had on our 10 day trip through New England! Brick oven pizzas, creative fish dishes, steaks and pasta. Everything we ordered was awesome. My favorite was the pumpkin ravioli.

Del Mar is our go to restaurant to bring friends when they come to the Cape. The food is great and the restaurant has a fun atmosphere. I have made a meal on the apps alone! They also have great thin crust gourmet pizzas. Check out the great specials especially the short ribs halibut and swordfish.

When you don't have a reservation you can give the bartender your name and they will put you on their list and let you know when seats are free! George and Nancy are great, and take very good care of everything!! I love the cod and my husband loves the bolognese... The chef and her team really know what they... More

Wow! Classy place. Super energy. Service spot on Oysters Rockefeller and steak for me was awesome and wife with great fish dish. My whiskey was ample and properly poured. Nothing bad to say

This is our sixth visit to the Del Mar. I have to say each visit is better than the last. Service is always stellar and the food divine. I have a special love for the Japanese pumpkin ravioli either as an appetizer or a larger portion as a main course. I dream about these with the perfect pasta, lightly sweet... More

Top-notch food in a casual setting; GREAT pizzas, but also high end tuna, steak, seafood. Superb appetizers-- highly recommend the 3-mushroom tart.
