If you’ve visited Casa Sol y Mar lately, you may have noticed our restaurant is alive with the holiday spirit. But did you know that much of our décor comes from the same artists and vendors found at Bazaar del Mundo in Old Town?
Throughout the Shops, you’ll find a large collection of wonderfully dressed Christmas trees adorned with hand-crafted ornaments, Mexican paper flowers, colorful ribbons, and – for something a little out of the ordinary – creative folk art masks, dolls and gourd ornaments. These pieces of art are stunning on a tree or as gifts!
If you’re searching for holiday pieces to decorate your mantel or dining room table, Bazaar del Mundo has a wide selection of hand-carved nativities and festive poinsettia table runners that will add holiday cheer to your home.

We admit, we’re spoiled living in San Diego. The sun shines year-round, there’s plenty to do, see and – most importantly – eat! That doesn’t mean, that we don’t get a little happier when summer rolls around. Spending a warm summer evening with family and friends on our luscious outdoor patio is the perfect way to celebrate the season. To experience all of the fiesta flair Casa Sol y Mar has to offer, we recommend the following:
- Step 1: Order one of our famous birdbath margaritas. Frosty and delicious, there’s a reason they’re so popular! And for those under 21, we offer mocktail (or virgin) versions of our refreshing blended drinks to help keep cool.
- Step 2: Enjoy your favorite meal, or try something new! The Grilled Salmon Salad, flame grilled salmon on salad greens topped with mangos, grapes, oranges and avocado, and served with mango chipotle dressing, is a summer favorite.
- Step 3: Request a song from our strolling mariachis and sing along. Nothing says fiesta like live music! Click HERE to see our entertainment schedule.
- Step 4: Relax and have a great evening!
Luckily, San Diego summers stretch on way past September 22, so let the celebrations continue!
Summers in San Diego are hard to beat! America’s Finest City’s year-round sun lends itself to some of the best “al fresco” dining in the country. So when FINE Magazine named Casa Sol y Mar the “Best Outdoor Dining” in San Diego, we couldn’t be more thrilled.
Complete with a lush garden, colorful umbrellas and a splashing water fountain made from Cantera Stone and hand-painted tiles, our outdoor patio is something special. And according to writer Matthew Zamudio, our Carnitas a la Michoacan are too! So grab a friend, take a seat and enjoy the summer sun – it’s not going anywhere any time soon.
Our sister restaurant Casa Guadalajara is celebrating its 20th anniversary next week! While many San Diegan’s have come to call the restaurant their favorite Old Town dining destination, we bet few remember how Casa Guadalajara came to be. In honor of the milestone, here’s a little history behind the restaurant:
Casa Guadalajara was once known as Romaine’s Guadalajara Grill. Upon discovering that Romaine’s former owner intended to cut down a majestic, 250-year-old California Pepper tree on the property to make way for a parking lot, Diane Powers purchased the land and transformed the restaurant into Casa Guadalajara – saving the tree and making it the focal point of the restaurant’s festive courtyard. Casa Guadalajara officially re-opened for business on June 12, 1995.
To celebrate the occasion, Powers and Casa Guadalajara will be throwing a week-long fiesta, with special entertainment including Folklorico dancers, strolling troubadours and mariachis, and special promotions. Starting Monday through Thursday, June 22 to 25, from 4 to 7 p.m., a special “Happier Hour” will take place in the Garden Room with tequila vendors on hand to present a special seminar. Thursday and Friday, June 25 and 26, will feature a special “throwback” menu with five favorite dishes that date back to the original menu, each with a 20 percent discount, and a commemorative T-shirt giveaway provided by Casamigos Tequila.
Come join the party and see why Casa Guadalajara has been a San Diego favorite for the last 20 years!
