Legends Bistro at La Costa Resort

Legends Bistro is a casual restaurant within the La Costa resort.  I went with a friend and was expecting to eat plain salad or something similar from their regular menu.  When we sat down, I mentioned that I was gluten-free and they brought me a whole menu.  It was a professional menu that looked exactly like the regular menu and wasn't something they just printed out that day.  I was very pleasantly surprised.  What was even better was that the selections on the gluten-free menu sounded a lot more interesting than the regular menu.  I ordered a chicken pasta dish that was made with rice pasta.  It was very tasty with lots of veggies.  They also had vegetarian and vegan selections on the gf menu.  The entrees were price between $10 and $18 for lunch.  I would definitely go again.  The strange part though is that they don't advertise their gf menu at all.  It's nowhere to be found on their website and if I hadn't mentioned I was gluten free, I would not have even known they had a gf menu.

  1. Seems like they just made your dining there extra special. Your description of what you ate just made me hungry, without even posting the pictures.

  2. I had lunch there earlier this week. A delicious grilled salmon on butter lettuce - so glad I read your post before our trip to San Diego. Very helpful - thanks!
