Living in Carlsbad has its perks. Beautiful beaches, incredible flower fields, Lego Land but one of the best parts about living here is all of the wonderful places to eat!

Here are our TOP FIVE restaurants in Carlsbad!


A favorite among locals. This Italian inspired steak and seafood restaurant has a relaxed atmosphere and amazing sunset views. You cannot visit Carlsbad without getting a taste of their prime ribeye, cioppino and homemade pappardelle con funghi capesante!

The Compass

A great place for signature cocktails that rotate monthly like the Yukon Cornelius made with espolon tequila, french curacao and hibiscus syrup. Perfectly paired with Dirty Fries, Truffle Mac and Cheese served in a cast iron, and our favorite shisito pepper appetizer.


Conveniently located right off of the 5 freeway near the outlet mall. Their endless queso and chips will win you over instantly and their margaritas will have you coming back for more!

West Steakhouse and Seafood

For a special occasion we love to eat at West Steakhouse and Seafood! Their butter-poached Australian lobster tails are to die for but they also have some unique dishes like the uni spaghetti with Caviar. You really cannot go wrong with any of the choices on the menu and with desserts like the peanut butter hot lava cake you will be in food heaven long after you leave.

Norte Mexican

If you are looking for authentic mexican food look no further! We love the enchiladas but you cannot go wrong with any of the items like the crab burrito, tostadas or Nachos. It is located right in the village in Carlsbad.
