They have an amazing happy hour where all small bites are 50% off! Must try the Peppered Ahi Takoshimi for only $7! They give you a lot of fresh ahi tuna and I love the spin on a taco using a crispy wonton as the hard shell taco. Great drinks and wine selection. It does get really warm at the bar when the sun is out so come dressed in light clothes or shorts so you won't overheat, lol! Right across the street from an amazing ocean view and just a short walk to the beach.

Great place to meet friends and have a nice happy hour watching the sunset from the bar and patio. Went on Wednesday night for $6.00 Vodka and Gin cocktails all night. They have a nice half off appetizer menu we had the flat bread with chirozo and the fish tacos all were very good. Take advantage of the nightly specials in the bar meet some friends and watch the beautiful sunset.

Excellent restaurant that has it all including food, service and views of the Pacific. Just don't go when they are having a private party with a loud DJ

Beautiful ocean views of the Pacific Ocean and fantastic sunsets. The food is consistently good as the staff there focuses on the natural flavors of the seafood.

Christmas Day, 3 course Menu (pick your courses), 75F+ Sunny Gorgeous Day!! Great location in Del Mar, and couldnt have been better. We got seated in the "patio area" but had the roof over our heads at the same time.

We had:
- Mixed Green salad - very tasty!!
- Crab Cakes - Fantastic!!
- Filet Mignon - Beyond tender, so flavorful, SUPERB!!
- Scallops - cooked to perfection
- All sides were fantastic!
- Desserts - Sorbet, Chocolate Pecan Pie, etc.

The service was fantastic.

Lastly, not having to prep, cook, and cleanup from a holiday meal - PRICELESS!!

Pacifica Del Mar is a great place to eat with beautiful vistas of the Pacific Ocean in the heart of Del Mar at the Del Mar Plaza. I would give it 5 Stars, except it can be pricey. They do have some good Happy Hour specials though.

First to Review

I haven’t been to the Pacifica in years, so I was really looking forward to dining at the plaza again.

Made a reservation for 6pm on a Tuesday night and good thing we did. The place was filled wall to wall with hungry patrons. This must be an after work hot spot.

Our server notified us of a menu change just 3 days before our visit, which made me a little skeptical because of any kinks that they still needed to work through, but everything seemed mastered.

The Dungeness Crab Cakes (2) were soft and fluffy and melted in our mouths with a great sweet sauce that accompanied them.

The mussels were perfectly cooked, which I have found most places over cook them. Plus, it was a perfect serving size to share. The only complaint I had about the mussels was the chorizo that came with it. I don’t want to say what it looked like in our bowl, but it did not look appetizing in one big chunk. If it was crumbled or sliced or anything it would’ve been better.

You can’t go wrong with the Hearts of Romaine salad and their homemade caesar dressing.

The Sugar-Spiced Salmon is a dish that I will come back for. Everything from the beans, the garlic mashed potatoes, and the mustard sauce were perfectly matched.

I was thoroughly impressed with this restaurant. It’s the first place in a very long time that I have felt that they have done everything right. The servers, all of them, were friendly, polite, ready to help ALL customers, and on point the entire evening. How did they get their staff to represent them so well? Good owners? Whatever. It works!

A couple of side notes:

1. Loved the bread and butter!!!! The butter was soft and easy to spread with a half a loaf of olive bread. Mmmmmhhmmmmm. I was happy before the meal came out!

2. The two of us got sat in the middle of the patio and constantly kept being bumped. It didn’t matter how far we moved our chairs in. A little annoying, but I get why this place is so busy!

3. DON”T FORGET TO GET YOUR PARKING CARD VALIDATED!

4. Sign up for their rewards program and get a $25 certificate for your birthday and membership anniversary. (This is definitely my new birthday restaurant!)
