RESTAURANT'S FAVOURITE REVIEW
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 weeks ago via mobile

As native Southern Californians, my friends and I take our Mexican food very seriously. We ordered the chips and guacamole to start but the salsas were the real star. The Salsa Taqueria is a must not miss. The fajitas were perfect and the nachos with beef mince had a hint of cinnamon that made them incredible. Our waiter, Martin, was... More

I love Mexican food but am often disappointed with how restaurants try to Americanize it. Not in Del Mer, this is fantastic authentic food - which I can say is the best I have ever had out of Mexico. Excellent ingredients with care and thought in every thing down to the masa for the corn tortillas. If you are not... More

It's on the upper floor of the shopping mall - hidden/ out of the way. Almost thought it was closed when we went up for a late lunch. Very good menu (Mexican street food style) and the food was delicious. Very knowledgeable waiter as well made the selections easier. Good view from the balcony seats.

If you want a lunchtime restaurant with a seat overlooking the fabulous camps Bay beach then go to Del Mar on the first floor of the small shopping arcade. It always looks as though it is closed and dark inside and not many venture to find out, but persevere and you will be rewarded with fine and spicy Tex/Mex food,... More

We ate a late lunch here and our only criticism is that service was a touch slow, perhaps because we visited between the lunch and dinner peaks at around 3pm. The server was extremely good and the food was delicious, freshly prepared Mexican food. I would happily visit here again when in Camps Bay.

Nice restaurant with beautiful view and good service. Food was a bit too spicy for us. My plate was excellent but the enchiladas of my fiancee were disappointing.

Although never having been to the country, and so unable to vouch for its authenticity, the food at Del Mar is certainly the best Mexican food I've ever eaten. Flavours are bold and clean, presentation is eye-catching, service attentive (thanks Martin!) and the room, with its view, a great place to be. Chicken strips marinated with chili & pineapple was...

Often when trying something outside you taste buds comfort zone, you get bad shock. It was not the case at Del Mar. Even when in doubt Lenny is a glance away to explain the dish

We went for the tapas style dishes. Our waiter was excellent in his recommendations. The food was great, and the service was spot on. Its upstairs a little tucked away so has to make the extra effort to get the business. This means those that take the time to find it are well rewarded.
