Cafe Del Rey Stunning Views in Marina Del Rey


Chcolate TowerCafe Del Rey is the place for stunning views in Marina Del Rey. For a romantic sunset or marvelous Mediterranean mouthfuls  by the water, “the food at CAFE del REY is about discovery, simplicity and quality of ingredients.” I can highly recommend the fresh fish and the incredible chocolate tower. I will be back soon for the thin crust pizza which was outstanding.

Have your next meeting with a view in their private room or sit by the fireplace and enjoy a cocktail.

Spend the holidays with Cafe Del Rey and your entire party will be full of good cheer! Join them on Wednesday for Christmas Eve or New Year’s Eve and ring in the good times together.
