Bali Hai Restaurant
Since 1955, Bali Hai Restaurant has been a family-owned and operated “tiki temple,” offering picturesque views of the San Diego Bay. In April 2010, the restaurant was completely renovated by renowned architect Graham Downes and with a new modern Pacific Rim menu by Executive Chef Chris Powell.
For over half a century locals have been heading to this island paradise for sweet and potent tiki drinks served with a sparkling view of the downtown skyline. The restaurant’s signature cocktail is the Bali Hai Mai Tai, which is juice-free and so strong that you’ll be limited to two per visit. If you want something a little less intense, try a drink from a list of The Classics or a frozen tropical refresher. Either way, you’ll need something substantial to eat, like the Cheeseburger with truffle black pepper mayo or some Adobo Short Rib.
