Within Fiesta de Reyes, two restaurants have been completely remodeled and are now open.
Festooned with true 1850s California-style antiques, collectables and paintings, Barra Barra is a full-service restaurant and saloon with indoor and outdoor seating. The restaurant boasts all-you-can-eat Friday nights and its signature drink, “The Best Margarita in Town”… made with top-shelf Herradura Blanco tequila, agave nectar, fresh-squeezed lime juice and Cointreau, Barra Barra’s signature margarita will be priced less than half of what it might cost at another establishment.
Casa de Reyes, the courtyard restaurant in the center of Fiesta de Reyes, has been completely restored with a new carrizo arbor, an outdoor tortilla factory, mariachi stage and California hacienda décor. Casa de Reyes features traditional Mexican food, like homemade tamales, chile rellenos, sizzling fajitas and slow-roasted pork. Imported outdoor furniture, patio umbrellas and fire pits add to the festive atmosphere of the Fiesta de Reyes courtyard.
Quaint retail shops offering products from around the world surround the Fiesta de Reyes courtyard. Guests can taste wine grown and manufactured locally or sample olive oil straight from the orchards in Temecula. And one of San Diego’s favorite toy stores, Geppettos, is back to its original location in Old Town with all the same great toys and games. Fiesta de Reyes also showcases locally made jewelry as well as a traditional Mexican bakery. Beacon Artworks and Designs in Shell are also back by popular demand.
Shops and restaurants, live musicians and local artisans demonstrating their artistic craft make Fiesta de Reyes a lively experience with a permanent party ambiance.
