By Travelzoo Staff
Perched on a cliff overlooking the Pacific, mar'sel at Terranea earns rare "extraordinary" marks from Zagat for both its cuisine (26) and setting (28), with the survey declaring it "should be on every romantic's bucket list." For $99, Travelzoo subscribers can take in the sweeping views while savoring a four-course seasonal dinner for two with wine, regularly $196.

Why we love it

  • Dine with "breathtaking ocean views" (Zagat) at the "world-class" Terranea in Rancho Palos Verdes
  • This dinner for 2 at mar'sel includes 4 courses and 2 glasses of wine
  • The wine credit can be applied toward any bottle with dinner
  • Zagat rates both the cuisine and setting "extraordinary"
  • The menu features a range of the chef's most popular dishes, like wagyu meatballs and crispy Shelton Farms chicken thighs

Beautiful setting, good food, good service!

Great service!

Location. Patio dining with a sweeping ocean view.

We very much enjoyed the food and it's presentation. However, service was extremely slow. It was nice to not feel rushed, but the wait for service almost became a distraction.

The setting was fabulous. Our server was very accommodating.

Not enough healthy selections from which to choose. It was disappointing that our fritattas didn't come w/ fresh fruit or bread or??? Coffee was sent back several times, b/c it wasn't hot enough. Service was slow. Although our reservation was for 10:00, the restaurant didn't open until 10:07 and there were several people waiting outside in line, assumably w/ a 10:00 reservation as well (not a big deal, but not such a great introduction either).

Can't beat the view.

We had a 1pm reservation and were seated promptly. Our server Trey was just great.
