Restaurant Spotlight: Introducing Monarch Ocean Pub

There’s nothing better than a stellar meal with a setting to match. In fact, the combination could be considered a quintessential San Diego experience. Our coastline is home to some of the most spectacular views of the Pacific–and Del Mar is no exception. The quaint seaside village is known for its gorgeous coastal scenery as well as the restaurants that overlook it.

New to the Del Mar scene, Monarch Ocean Pub offers stunning panoramic views of coastal Del Mar and the Pacific Ocean, making it the perfect selection for everyday dining. Hip and casual with an upscale aesthetic, this open-air restaurant provides the highest quality food and spirits in an atmosphere that brings people together through enjoyable times and positive energy. Monarch is the latest addition to the Del Mar Plaza and is located on the top level of the shopping center. 

The menu features modern American comfort food, craft cocktails and local brews on draft. Mouthwatering options like the Fresh Halibut & Patagonia Shrimp Ceviche, Mushroom + Burrata Flatbread, Fresh Shucked Oysters, and Short Rib Pastrami Sandwich with thinly sliced Pastrami brined for 5 days, make for a delightful dining experience.

With so many amazing choices, you really can’t go wrong at Monarch Ocean Pub. Experience it for yourself! Monarch is open for outdoor dining and to-go orders Tuesday – Sunday, 12 PM – 8 PM.
