Infused with the flavors of Southern California
When ingredients are grown locally, food simply tastes better. That's the farm-to-table philosophy behind the Coastal Ranch cuisine at Rancho Valencia. Where the olive oil, herbs and honey are cultivated right on property. The produce and herbs are grown locally and harvested at the peak of the season. And the steaks come from prime and grass-fed, pasture-raised beef. It all adds up to exceptional quality you can taste.
Executive Chef Eric Bauer works personally with some of the country's most notable farms to source the elements for his cuisine, ensuring only the best ingredients and freshest flavors possible at Rancho Valencia's two new restaurants. Veladora brings together stunning valley views with Mediterranean cuisine in a captivating, candlelit modern hacienda setting, while The Pony Room serves up craft tequilas and cocktails alongside rustic American cuisine for lunch and dinner.
