About Us

How Our Mexican Restaurant Came to Be

Diane Powers opened Casa Sol y Mar, the newest dining destination in the Bazaar del Mundo Restaurant Group, in May 2013.
The fourth in a family of fine Mexican eateries scattered throughout the county, Casa Sol y Mar is located in Del Mar Highlands Town Center at 12865 El Camino Real, and is elaborately decorated to reflect the true spirit of Mexico.

A Fun & Memorable Dining Experience
Powers’ philosophy is to offer great value and a delightful dining experience, surrounded by memorable flavors, abundant menu selections, high-quality ingredients and a spirited, authentic environment that captures the essence of Mexican traditions.

Guests will sense the warmth and romance of Mexico as they enter through the large wooden and glass doors and find themselves standing beneath a high glowing ceiling and magnificent iron chandelier. The interior is painted in a fiesta of gold, crimson and orange jewel tones; it sparkles from wall to wall. Each room, uniquely designed with its own character and charm, exhibits a slightly different blend of colors, sophisticated lighting, Mexican folk art, festive décor and glazed Mexican accent tiles in red, emerald and orange. The minute you walk into our Mexican restaurant you will feel at home and inspired by the atmosphere!

Traditional and Contemporary Mexican Dishes Bursting with Flavor & Freshness
The delectable menu features traditional Mexican dishes with an emphasis on flavor and freshness, including a large selection of regional entrees made from scratch, and award-winning seafood recipes that have existed in the restaurant family for decades. In addition, the menu highlights newly created small plates and appetizers, as well as entrees with a contemporary twist. Homemade dressings, salsas and sauces are made fresh daily, along with hot corn and flour tortillas. There is also an extensive children’s menu as well as deliciously appealing entrée salads and abundant gluten-free, vegetarian and healthy dining selections.

Tonight is the perfect night to come see us at Casa Sol y Mar! Don’t forget our festive entertainment and our happy hour specials! Get in touch with us for your San Diego banquet and catering needs too!.
