El Jardin

The El Jardin story opens more than two decades ago, when the Delgado family first began serving authentic Mexican dishes at its festive, color-soaked restaurant. Today, Delgado family members continue to run the kitchen, folding locally grown produce, fresh seafood, and homemade salsas into dishes that have been lauded by Santa Cruz Good Times. Owner George Delgado's own mosaic artwork adorns the floors of the dining room, where vibrant paintings act as eye candy to accompany house margaritas, enchiladas, fajitas, and specialty dishes. Outdoor heaters warm diners seated on the expansive patio, which sits amidst a garden of plant life and songbirds that croon the lyrics to popular mariachi numbers.
