coastal cuisine

Serẽa is proud to bring an exquisite sea-to-table dining experience to San Diego in a comfortable yet sophisticated setting.

Located just steps from the beach in the legendary Hotel del Coronado, the restaurant’s key focus is the bounty of the sea. The menu focuses on sustainable seafood, with a coastal cuisine menu that spotlights the best of the region’s oceans, farms and fields, ranging from the California Coast down to the Baja Peninsula.

Creative cuisine with a global flair is prepared by San Diego’s own Chef Jojo Ruiz, who creates elegant, fresh dishes with just a hint of Mediterranean flair.



At Serẽa, we are dedicated to serving delicious cuisine that reflects the bounty of the region. Our menu focuses on the finest ingredients we can get our hands on, including produce and meat sourced from the farms and fields of California, and of course, seafood sourced from the California coast.

Located just steps from one of the most beautiful US beaches, Serẽa features some of the most beautiful views, and our menu is designed to pay homage to the sea.

To be able to truly deliver the best sea-to-table dining experience in San Diego, we believe it’s of the utmost important to carefully source the most sustainable seafood possible.

Our menu includes a variety of environmentally friendly seafood dishes, including both raw and cooked options. Whether it’s a whole freshly caught fish, a seafood tower, or a composed dish, you can rest assured that we’ve done our part to carefully choose the ingredients from the finest producers.

Seafood is sourced from a variety of local and regional purveyors, including Tuna Harbor Dockside Market, Catalina Offshore Products, and Los Angeles-based Superior Seafoods.

We also feature products from Baja California’s Pacifico Aquaculture, a purveyor that has created an innovative, sustainability-first farming program for premium, ocean-raised sea bass.

Of course, seafood isn’t the only responsibly sourced component to our cooking. There’s also special attention paid to all of the meats on the Serẽa menu. We’ve sourced our meats from some of the best regional ranchers, who are known for offering the most tender and flavorful products.

At Serẽa, we believe that fresh and high quality ingredients make a big difference. Not only is using responsibly sourced ingredients better for the environment, but it makes for a much better meal.

Come taste the difference for yourself!
