Rancho Valencia

The kitchen is under the direction of Executive Chef Jarrod Moiles where the cuisine is crafted using fresh, seasonal produce, herbs grown right on property and local Temecula honey. The steaks come from prime and grass-fed, pasture-raised beef.

Veladora is the signature restaurant serving delicious Coastal Ranch cuisine for breakfast, lunch and dinner in a warm hacienda atmosphere. Dine inside with valley views or in the intimate fireplace lit courtyard. We enjoyed a delicious prime tenderloin steak tartar, grilled swordfish, lobster risotto and a bittersweet chocolate soufflé. A wonderful Spotswood Sauvignon Blanc was the perfect meal pairing.

“Inventive” seasonal Cal cuisine is served in “chic, elegant” surroundings with stellar valley views at this on-site restaurant at the Rancho Valencia Resort & Spa helmed by chef Jarrod Moiles; “outstanding” service helps justify the pricey bills.” ZAGAT

The Pony Room, the resort’s casual tavern, sports a rustic interior and a two level terrace outside. The sunset views, often with hot air balloons sailing by, are breathtaking. With over 100 types of tequila, craft beers, an excellent wine list and a creative casual menu, there’s something for everyone. Don’t miss the Maine lobster sliders or the Sassy Sangria.
