Farm to Bar at Villa del Palmar Loreto

Farm to Bar at Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto

Farm-to-table restaurants are a growing trend around the culinary world, combining the work of organic farmers with master chefs for freshly prepared meals with locally grown produce, and the mixologists at Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto are always trying new, innovative ideas. The latest concept at the resort is farm to bar, using spices and herbs grown at the resort to create fresh and flavorful cocktails for members and guests. Sampling these original creations and learning how to mix your own cocktails will make your vacation more relaxing and continue to inspire you when you return back home.

Home-Grown Concept

The concept of farm-to-table dining is to reduce the distance that produces and meat travel before it’s prepared, creating more organic and fresh meals and supporting local farms. Not only are these meals rich in flavor, but the restaurant also helps support the community and the environment by not shipping in large amounts of food from other parts of the world. Because the chefs rely on locally-grown produce, the menus are constantly changing to reflect what’s in season. This gives chefs the ability to constantly be innovating and creating new dishes. Diners can also feel safe about what they’re eating, knowing where it comes from and how it’s grown.

  • We have been trying for a couple of years to find out the cost of golf. We are not on the points program but rather would buy a package /pass for x# of rounds per week. We would love to come for 2 weeks, but without golf, there’s not much to do.
