Fodor's 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.
