The Prado Review

The striking Spanish-Moorish interior of this lovely restaurant in the historic House of Hospitality on Balboa Park's museum row has painted ceilings and elaborate glass sculptures. It also brings a contemporary menu to an area where picnic lunches or hot dogs from a nearby cart are the usual options. The bar is a fashionable pre- and post-theater destination for light nibbles with Latin, Italian, and Asian flavors and creative drinks; in the dining room, reliable dishes range from lunchtime grilled mahimahi tacos and a fancy pressed salad of baby arugula, strawberries, candied walnuts, and asiago cheese to saffron-scented lobster paella and roasted sea bass.

    Sit Outside

    We had lunch outside, near the tinkling water fountain. It was so serene, quiet and beautiful; didn't want to leave. Service was quick and complimentary hummus and crackers were served. Wished I had time to go back for dinner.

    Awesome!

    One of our favorite restaurants! We go here at least twice a month. Great for lunch. Fantastic soups and their hummus is awesome! A winner of the Cohn group!
