While staying at the resort it is difficult to give this restaurant an average review, although truly that is what it deserves on one level. Our first night as guests we decided to dine here out of convenience and were disappointed. The service was extremely slow although the restaurant did not seem overly busy.

Our first night we went here for dinner. The service was extremely slow. It took us almost 20 minutes to get drinks and when... More

Can't complain! The menu had a great selection, loved the breakfast twist with Italian flavors. I did not know what to choose, it all sounded very delicious.

The setting outside and the furnishings inside are beautiful, however the food was tasty but the portions of the salads and appetizers were insultingly small for the price. We tasted the gazpacho and it was very oily and flavorless. The tuna tartar was delicious but 4 bites. A bit disappointing since the hotel is grand.

Excellent food and atmosphere. Try to sit outside if weather permits. They have heaters and the view is wonderful overlooking the canyon.

This restaurant is on property of the Grand Del Mar Hotel and very very good. We had dinner, a dessert and coffee and a lunch there. Service is excellent, food divine and it is a beautiful space as well.

It was a reasonably busy night with good energy. Food was great! Our waiter was even better! Combine this with good company and you're bound to have a good time. Catalan shrimp was awesome; everybody was so nice....I'll be back!

We were there in a group of 6. The food was great, but took forever to get to the table. Same thing happened with dessert and when we check out. Comparing it with same level restaurants at the area, I will rather stay with others.
