Always a favourite. Great cocktail bar with superb wines list and best martinis in town. Love being able to dine at the bar instead of in the more formal restaurant.

Lived up to the hype. Unassuming from the outside this restaurant right across from Del Mar Race Course was a winner! On the expensive side but great portions and terrific menu. A must stop if in the area.

We're local to the area, but never dined here until now, during restaurant week. We were quite impressed: relaxed elegance, not loud due to sound absorbing decor, attentive service, carefully prepared and excellent food. I had a pork chop, my wife duck breast and confit,...More
