With its mixture of cultures and innovative spirit, San Diego is a well-known hub for delicious food and spectacular restaurants featuring flavors from all over the world. San Diego also boasts a thriving and exciting nightlife, and it also has places that feature both!

Such is the case for Romesco, a self-proclaimed “Mexiterranean” restaurant that not only mixes the best aspects of Mexican and Mediterranean cuisine but does it at the rhythm of live music, providing San Diego residents with an amazing dining and dancing experience.

Romesco is a restaurant known for its creative contrasts and imaginative fusions, a trait that extends to every aspect of the eatery. Blending an upscale dining experience with the laid-back atmosphere of a tapas bar and the colorful rhythms of Latin music, Romesco is unlike any other Mexican restaurant in San Diego, and perhaps even the country, a claim backed up by having been voted San Diego’s best Mexican restaurant three years in a row.

But what makes Romesco such a wonderful dining and dancing destination? Let’s start with the food.

Featuring mouthwatering dishes such as the “Lamb Asado,” the “Mexican Risotto” or the “Salmón al Ajillo,” Romesco blends traditional Mexican recipes with Mediterranean ingredients and cooking techniques, delivering familiar flavors with a unique twist that pique your curiosity from the first bite.

A dining and dancing restaurant doesn’t stand out without great drinks, though, and while they can get a little wild, Romesco’s signature cocktails are definitely something to write home about.

What makes Romesco one of the best dining and dancing destinations in San Diego isn’t just the food but also the ambiance, which reinforces Romesco’s mix of cultures by mixing the classic bistro look with a more lively tapas-bar atmosphere, peppering the mix with energetic Latin rhythms perfect to dance to as you enjoy Romesco’s drinks and food.

Romesco also features an extensive, and delicious, tapas menu, which you can eat both in the bistro and the Spanish taproom as you have fun dancing the night away. Romesco’s tapas are a whole experience on their own, mixing colors, flavors, textures, and aromas into unique bite-sized experiences perfect to accompany you during your night out.
