Welcome to Rancho Valencia. Where lush citrus and olive groves meet sunset skies dotted with hot air balloons. Where cuisine is crafted using fresh, seasonal produce, herbs grown right on property and local Temecula honey. And where the steaks come from prime and grass-fed, pasture-raised beef. It all adds up to an exceptional dining experience that is far from the ordinary, and simply perfect.

Our talented culinary team, led by Executive Chef Joshua Holt, works personally with some of the country’s most notable farms to source the elements for Rancho Valencia’s cuisine, ensuring only the best ingredients and freshest flavors possible at our two restaurants. Veladora brings together stunning valley views with Coastal Ranch cuisine in a captivating, candlelit modern hacienda setting, while The Pony Room serves up craft tequilas and cocktails alongside rustic American cuisine for lunch and dinner.
