From mariachis to margaritas, the Mexican city of Guadalajara is known as the birthplace of all things synonymous with “fiesta!” And in Old Town San Diego, the spirit lives on at Casa Guadalajara.
Sunlit ceremonies can be held beneath the 300-year-old California pepper tree in the quaint courtyard with a rustic ambience, complete with old wooden gates, splashing fountains, colorful Talavera tiles and wrought iron fixtures. Inside the restaurant boasts a beautiful garden room and colorfully decorated dining rooms, reminiscent of a gracious Mexican hacienda.
Casa Guadalajara features an imaginative menu with traditional and contemporary cuisine, reflecting dishes of the regional villages of Mexico. Signature offerings include award-winning seafood dishes, creative, chipotle chile-inspired entrees and sauces, and guacamole made fresh to order. The restaurant is also synonymous with its famous “Birdbath Margaritas” – the perfect addition to any fiesta.
Wedding ceremony and reception packages are offered for celebrations of any budget, and can accommodate parties of up to 150 guests. All fiesta buffet wedding packages include champagne or a sparkling cider toast, soft drinks, tortilla chips, guacamole, and a delicious homemade salsa prepared daily. Each table is elaborately decorated with lively sarapes, ornate paper flowers and colorful linens.
For more festive flair, request performances from Casa Guadalajara’s world-class mariachi group, Cielito Lindo, or traditional ballet folklorico dancers. The restaurant can also provide interactive guest options like a deep fried ice cream station or margarita cart, and custom-made piñatas.
Casa Guadalajara is also a full-service caterer and can design custom menus for any offsite event.
