Valentine’s Day is Friday, February 14!

Romantic Restaurants:


Jake’s Del Mar

1660 Coast Blvd | Del Mar, CA | 92014

Fresh fish right on the beach, with your loved one? Yes, please. Located steps from the Pacific, Jake’s Del Mar offers picturesque sunset views and a menu packed with locally sourced American cuisine and seafood dishes. Because the place can get pretty busy, we recommend making a reservation so you don’t keep your date waiting. If you do have to wait, or if you show up for your reservation a little early, you can always grab a cocktail at the outside bar and enjoy the ocean views on Jake’s patio.


Coastline at L’Auberge Del Mar

1540 Camino Del Mar | Del Mar, CA  | 92014
(858) 793-6460

Dine under romantic market lights as you watch the colors fade from the sky. Coastline, located on L’Auberge Del Mar’s oceanview deck, offers a casual, fun atmosphere to enjoy delicacies such as salmon with toasted almonds and green apple or New York strip steak with salsa verde.


Viewpoint Brewing Company

2201 San Dieguito Drive | Del Mar, CA | 92014

We know your loved one makes you feel warm and fuzzy–however, the warm pita at Beeside Balcony will be a worthy competitor.

Coya Peruvian Secret

1140 Camino Del Mar | Del Mar, CA | 92014

Once you step into Coya Peruvian Secret, it won’t be a secret why this restaurant made the list. Regardless of whether you deem Peruvian food to be romantic, there’s no denying the intimate atmosphere at Coya Peruvian Secret. The indoor-outdoor café is covered by flowering bougainvillea trees that give it a quaint, European feel with charming character. Start your meal with Pulpito (octopus) or Scallops, enjoy your entrée, and don’t forget to share Cuatro Leches or Alfajores for dessert. For just a few hours, you’ll forget you’re in Del Mar and instead be transported to a magical, far off destination.


Pacifica Del Mar

Pacifica Del Mar’s romantic ambiance and breathtaking sea views are the perfect backdrops for its highly acclaimed cuisine.

Chef/Partner Chris Idso is serving his entire menu where each entrée selection comes with a choice of soup or salad to start. Diners can order new items, like his Seared Atlantic Sea Scallops, Filet Mignon or Pan Roasted Chilean Seabass, each coming with a choice of soup – like New England Clam Chowder – or Salad like Classic Caesar. The Valentine’s Day menu will be available from Feb. 13-16.

Followed by A5 Miyazaki Wagyu Beef Steak. Our skilled chefs prepare sushi entrée including Bluefin tuna toro, hirame, yellowtail, seared salmon, blue shrimp and dragon roll.

Casual food in a casual setting one block from the ocean.

If you’re looking to extend your romantic evening and turn it into a weekend getaway, there are plenty of other ways to keep the romance flowing long after dinner. Book your stay at L’Auberge or Hotel Indigo to make the most of your time in the Village. The next morning, you can start your day with a delicious brunch and a long, romantic walk on the beach.
