The food was good and the outdoor patio was great! There was a lovely performance going on in the courtyard! The service was a bit slow at times.

We took two of our group over to eat here. The portions are large and the girls enjoyed the pitcher of the house Margaritas.

Located in the center of Old Town, this place has a cheerful Mexican atmosphere and delicious food as well as beautiful floral settings that add to the ambience. Sitting outside and enjoying the day was a real treat.

Located in the heart of Old Town San Diego, this was a fairly standard Mexican style restaurant. We sat outside, close to the stage area where there were dancers in traditional garb, dancing traditional dances—at least that was the impression that a gringo like me...More

I don't know what the restaurant policy is regarding dogs on the patio...but it is more of a courtyard situation, surrounded by shops. I'm thinking that pets are not allowed, but service animals would be. Your best bet... More

Casa de Reyes offers awarding winning, world-class Mexican comfort food! Located within Old Town San Diego State Historic Park, you’ll enjoy traditional Mexican dining in a lush garden courtyard. There’s also free live entertainment, strolling mariachis, folklórico dancing, year-round events, and more! Casa de Reyes is located on the site of an adobe home built in 1823, one of the first adobe homes in San Diego. Our restaurant is named in honor of one of the home’s first owners, Doña Maria de los Reyes Ybañez de Dominguez. Doña Maria made her small, humble adobe a comfortable and welcoming home for friends and guests, and so do we.
