Critic's review

Sandiso Ngubane

Food
Del Mar is a Camps Bay favourite, with a modern Mexican menu that will have you salivating just reading what’s on offer. Everything sounds delicious and lives up to expectations. The menu boasts a modern twist on Mexican classics like tacos and tortillas – some soft; others crispy, depending on your order. The chimichanga, for example, is a crispy tortilla stuffed with pork and guacamole with rojo rice – a delightful mix of flavours that goes down well with their black bean dip. This is offered up by the waiter alongside a bowl of tortilla chips while you wait for your order to arrive.

Other mains include a beef rib eye with mushroom tequila sauce, and the atún al adoro – grilled tuna with adobo marinade. The salmon achote is the fish, grilled and marinated with achote and chillies.

The assortment of tacos include the camarones asados, which is grilled prawns with peppers and onions. The barbacao is a delicious serving of slow-roasted lamb, and the Cartinas de Puerco is the lip-smacking slow-cooked pork taco dish.

Drinks
All you probably expect from a Mexican establishment is on the menu, alongside a wide selection of wines. Make a pick between reposado, pomegranate, patron and other margharitas, or opt for a caipirinha. They have a vast list of tequila shooters, and the beer selection features a variety of craft brands as well as Heineken and Windhoek.

Service
Attentive and quite helpful with a menu that can be rather daunting.

Ambience
The restaurant is on Camp’s Bay famous Victoria Road strip, meaning you can dine while enjoying the sight of crashing waves from inside the clean black, white, and dark blue interior that gives it a sophisticated feel one expects from establishments in this area.

And…
If you are looking for a vibrant atmosphere it is best to go here for dinner, as it can feel rather empty during the day.

  • Went to dine for my birthday with two other people, we were so dissapointed with the whole experience. Waiters that don't smile, no salt or pepper, prices over the roof for little quality. Order two dishes, each of us did, none was good. My vegetarian fajitas were just peppers with two mushrooms a spread of guacamole and tortillas for a extra price. This is the worst mexican restaurant I ever been, just dissapointing all together. Yes I been in México, Im from Costa Rica and I can tell you, value your money, don't spend it in this place.
