What the Food Critics are Saying

“Hermosa Beach deserves a quality, upscale taco and ceviche joint, and Dia de Campo is pretty perfect for its surroundings. […] The welcoming staff and bright seafood dishes hit exactly the right spot. And those line cooks twirling in the back know how to shuck an oyster, cook a whole snapper, or grill up a lobster if you're feeling a bit more decadent.” – LA Weekly

“…When playing with Mexico’s fresher side—as in a fantastic nopales salad and those inventive ceviches—[Chef ] Vuong flashes his versatility.” – LA Magazine

  • “We have geniuses in our midst.” – Easy Reader News

Ambience

Dia de Campo has a modern surf shack feel, open and airy, with rustic and industrial elements. The space includes a comfortable lounge area, a long bar, communal tables, wooden booths and colorful banquettes.

On the Side

Dia de Campo is Portuguese for “field day.”
