The Passion of Our Chefs, The Freshness of the FoodLet the culinary artistry of Executive Chef Bernard Guillas and his team take you on a global journey that will excite the senses. This 20-year collaboration of gastronomic excellence brings exotic influences rooted in the French classics to each of their seasonal offerings, and menus as dramatic and memorable as the restaurant's oceanfront setting. Along with a team of seasoned tastemakers, these famed San Diego chefs have been pleasantly critiqued for their cutting-edge techniques, self-expression, and world-class devotion to fresh seafood, hand-picked local ingredients, and award-winning desserts. Their elevated spin on global ingredients served in an elegant art presentation makes the Marine Room's cuisine second to none.
Maître Cuisiniers de France and award-winning chef Bernard Guillas joined La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club, Inc. as Executive Chef for The Marine Room in June 1994. Guillas is also responsible for directing the resort's other two restaurants, including The Shores Restaurant and catering operations for the La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club and La Jolla Shores Hotel. Right at home in La Jolla, Guillas' affinity for the coastal lifestyle reminded him of his home in Brittany.
