Casa Sol y Mar Buffet Catering

Casa Sol y Mar, The House of Sun and Sea, offers fully staffed, buffet catering for offsite events in San Diego. We have six menus of authentic Mexican food to choose from, along with vibrant Mexican decor that we can match to your event.

Each menu includes appetizers, a main dish, salads and side dishes, all made from scratch. Where possible, we grill meat onsite to be presented hot and fresh for tasty tacos and burritos. We offer desserts and celebration drinks upon special order (e.g. cake and champagne for weddings). We also provide china dishes and flatware.

The Casa Sol y Mar staff works hard to make parties easier for their hosts. Planning the meal together like this ensures that it flows smoothly. So when you have your next party, call us. Together we will arrange your memorable event.

Also remember that if your venue falls through, we can host your party in our restaurant or patio in the Del Mar Highlands Town Center, 12865 El Camino Real, San Diego. Your guests can enjoy our warm, romantic atmosphere and entertaining mariachi band, in addition to the excellent cuisine for which we are well known.
