Food & Wine Restaurant Review To Do in L.A.

Café del Rey

Café del Rey Reggatta room

A surefire bet for an unparalleled mix of delectable cuisine with a serene nautical view is Café del Rey. Twenty minutes from LAX, this celebrated restaurant is a perfect choice for lunch, dinner, brunch, meetings, social gatherings or simply a quiet and romantic cocktail by the fire.

At the casually elegant Cafe del Rey, innovative California-Mediterranean cuisine shines in a contemporary, open dining room with views of the harbor from just about every table. Each coastal inspired, exotic dish is served on oversized plates that mirror the graceful curves of the ocean.

The beauty and serenity of the marina offers the opportunity for Executive Chef, Jason Niederkorn, to constantly be inspired. Mr. Niederkorn’s uses food and wine as his medium for artistic expression and his custom menus and unique dishes showcase his work. He has elevated dining on the water to an art form.

We suggest trying Dungeness Crab Cake with cucumber and charantais melon salad or Agnolotti of White Corn topped with a pork belly sliver, brown butter, Parmesan Reggiano and chives as a starter. For an entrée, try the Chateau Filet Steak, ravioli of crescenza, leeks, and black truffles and red wine sauce, a true innovation created by the Chef. For dessert, the Chocolate Bacon Cake (with bacon powder) served with smoked chocolate gelato was surprisingly delightful.

With the comfort of a favorite neighborhood restaurant, Cafe del Rey embraces their waterfront location and allows the panoramic views and ocean breeze to perfect each dining experience. The chef’s take on California-Mediterranean cuisine, exemplified by the details of each plate, makes each visit to Cafe del Rey a new adventure.
