With the backdrop of the lushly-landscaped patio of the historic Mission Inn in Riverside, Las Campanas, Restaurant & Cantina recently hosted a Cinco de Mayo celebration for its guests amid an assortment of flowering cacti, camellia trees, agave plants, fountains and waterfalls.

The 120-seat outdoor eatery and cantina offered a menu of innovative “south of the border” cuisine prepared by the hotel’s award-winning Executive Chef Victor Juarez, boasting such entree selections as red snapper Veracruzana simmered in diced tomatoes, garlic, capers, onions and black and green olives in a tequila sauce; grilled filet mignon served on a lightly-fried flour tortilla with grilled Anaheim chiles and Bermuda onion; and rotisserie chicken breast topped with an apricot chipotle sauce and served with rice, black beans and warm flour tortillas.

In addition to full bar service, guests enjoyed a wide array of specialty margaritas made to order from a selection of more than 30 premium tequilas and mescals.

During the grand opening of Las Campanas, Duane Roberts “Keeper” of the inn stated: “In keeping with the Mission Inn’s historic roots, we are delighted to announce the introduction of Las Campanas, our first Mexican-themed restaurant.”

Las Campanas Restaurant & Cantina is open Monday through Saturday from 11:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. On Sundays, the restaurant will accommodate the overflow guests visiting the Mission Inn Restaurant for brunch.
