AAA Inspector Notes
Historic. Located at the historic House of Hospitality in the heart of Balboa Park, this award-winning establishment serves refreshing cuisine in several venues. Your choices are a garden terrace out back, a dining room filled with an eclectic mixture of boldly colored décor and furnishings, the casual lounge or the front patio where small dogs are allowed. Popular menu items include lobster bucatini with shrimp/mussels, roasted tomato risotto with mascarpone cheese, skirt steak pannini and Prado paella. With valet parking being offered starting at 5pm on weekdays (11am weekends), parking can be a bit tricky at times. Lots inside Balboa Park are complimentary and can be found throughout the park. There is also a complimentary tram that runs every 10-12 minutes and stops just adjacent the Prado.
