Whine & Dine: Casa Sol y Mar

San Diego is full of great Mexican food. That’s one of the things I love about this city – no matter what neighborhood you’re in, you can always count on a great Mexican food restaurant just around the corner. Casa Sol y Mar in Del Mar is no exception.

It was raining the night we decided to try this place out, so I was extremely thankful for the convenient parking lot in the Del Mar Highlands shopping center – not having to search for street parking is always a plus when you have a baby!

The Low Down

  • The ambiance was very cool – I loved all of the colorful lanterns hanging throughout the main dining room and the bright red ceiling. There is also a large outdoor patio that would be perfect for dining on a non-rainy day (so, the other 360 days of the year in San Diego).

  • The hostess purposely sat us in the back in a quiet booth because Blake was sleeping, so imagine the look on my face when the 4 piece mariachi band began playing (complete with a trumpet) right next to us! I studied Blake’s face waiting for her to be startled awake, but she just kept on snoozing as if nothing was going on – impressive!
  • The food was great. I usually judge a Mexican restaurant by it’s chips and salsa – so after I devoured the whole basket of chips and bowl of salsa, I knew our entrees were going to be good. I had the chicken fajitas and a corona (while channeling a peaceful white sandy beach and palm tree like you see on those Corona commercials). Everything was fantastic and the service was spot on.

My Favorite Part

When I looked down and realized that our guacamole was sticking its tongue out at me. Now, if that’s not a good time, then I don’t know what is. :p
