Locally sourced cuisine that’s far from ordinary
Prepare for more than a few magnificent surprises as you dine at the exquisite Veladora restaurant. Taking inspiration from Rancho Valencia's Old World influences, Veladora serves fresh, handcrafted and simply delicious Coastal Ranch cuisine for breakfast, lunch and dinner. All in an inviting hacienda atmosphere, where sun-dappled afternoons and stunning valley views fade into captivating candlelit evenings.
Executive Chef Eric Bauer lets the true flavors of seasonal ingredients take center stage on a menu that blends the area's bounty of fruits and vegetables with unique pairings of seafood, poultry and varieties of meats. Sample slow poached Maine lobster with lemon vinaigrette, burratta cheese, and pickled and roasted beets with avocado from a local farm. Or savor a slow pan roasted filet mignon. The choices are abundant. And abundantly delicious.
