DINING GUIDE - Pavilion Restaurant


International Cuisine at Pavilion Restaurant
by Stockton Hill

The Pavilion Restaurant at the Las Caras de Mexico Golf Course at La Ventana del Mar Resort offers some of San Felipe's best international cuisine with a wide variety of fare.

So much has been written about the golf course that little attention has been given to the restaurant. The Pavilion Restaurant opened five years ago and has gone through few changes. With it's current manager, Cesar Quirarte, they have been providing a new level of cuisine not found elsewhere in the San Felipe area.

Cesar Quirarte has been in the restaurant business for 14 years and started at The Estero Beach Hotel Resort in Ensenada. Today he is an active part of the restaurant and is present daily to greet his guests and to ensure the food and service is exceptional.

"The atmosphere, service, and the fact we treat everybody like family is what make us special," says Cesar. The restaurant has a warm, lodge feeling with its high ceilings, and it boasts one of the best dining room views available as it looks out out across the golf course to the Sea of Cortez.

The Pavilion currently serves a number of purposes. These include providing the main venue for golf course-related services, as well as serving as the temporary clubhouse for the new Las Caras de Mexico golf course.

Cesar says his favorite dish is their Eggs Benedict, and he further believes the restaurant has the best pizzas, tower salad, Veracruzana fish, rack of lamb, scallops & shrimp, baby back ribs and quail.

The Pavilion is normally open for breakfast and lunch in addition to the dinner hours, providing additional tasty options to the ever-expanding menu. However, for the summer the Pavilion will be closed starting June 15th, and will only open for business Saturday (7 am to 12 pm) and Sunday (7 am to 3 pm). The Pavilion will also be open for special dinners, charity events, weddings and Saturday swapmeet.
