One of the joys of living in Southern California is that we can enjoy dining outdoors on restaurant patios throughout the year, thanks to our relatively mild climate. It’s no wonder, then, that at South Coast Plaza, restaurant patios are a favorite of guests taking a break from a shopping expedition, gathering with family for a special occasion, or enjoying cocktails with friends after work. From tropical to Mediterranean-inspired, each restaurant patio’s atmosphere is as diverse as the global flavors on the plates. Here, seven SCP patios worth the visit:
4 A canopy of cheerful yellow umbrellas defines Vaca‘s patio, which borders Town Center Park and The Westin South Coast Plaza. Guests view the serene, well-manicured grounds and riveting outdoor sculptures while savoring Spanish cuisine from Amar Santana of Top Chef .
5 Centered by a sparkling, tiled fountain at South Coast Plaza Village, The Courtyard features two distinct restaurants for dining under the stars: Antonello Ristorante offers classic Italian fare with incomparable hospitality. Royal Khyber Fine Indian Cuisine is renowned for refined Indian cuisine with irresistible flavors.
