Hyatt Regency Mission Bay Dining
Dining choices at Hyatt Regency come in three options. Red Marlin Restaurant & Terrace is the hotel’s signature fine dining restaurant serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
For more casual fare served in a relaxed marina ambience, SWIM Bar & Lounge is the place to be.
You can grab on-the-go eats from Market Mission Bay where you’ll find everything from savory paninis to Starbucks coffee to souvenirs.
Red Marlin Restaurant & Terrace
Red Marlin Restaurant & Terrace overlooks the beautiful Mission Bay Marina. This dynamic waterfront restaurant has a modern and warm design with gorgeous handcrafted, dark-wood tables with white cushioned chairs, and nautical-style white and navy booths.
These design elements are enhanced by soaring ceilings adorned with hanging moon-shaped lighting fixtures, hardwood floors, tabletop fire pits, and floor-to-ceiling windows encircling the entire space. Outside, you can enjoy the fresh ocean air while you dine on their terrace with marina and bay views.
Red Marlin is the perfect setting for unique California coastal cuisine prepared by the resort’s, Chef de Cuisine. His breakfast, lunch, and dinner menus feature local fresh seafood and sustainable ingredients that San Diego is known for with favorites like Beer Battered Swordfish Tacos. You can also expect landlubber selections like New York Steak – balsamic cipollini, roasted garlic mashed potatoes, asparagus, red wine demi, and maître d’ butter.
SWIM Bar & Lounge
