About Camino

SDCM, the creative brain trust behind several of San Diego’s nationally acclaimed restaurants, including the Michelin Bib Gourmand award- winning Kettner Exchange and North County’s chic culinary gem, Waverly, proudly present Camino Riviera, a sultry and creative celebration of the Yucatán coastline. Owner, Matt Spencer teamed up with the space’s previous owner, Mauricio Couturier (El Camino) to design the interior for Camino Riviera. As El Camino was a beloved San Diego hot spot, Spencer and Couturier wanted to pay tribute to the original location while exploring the beauty and raw elements of Tulum. With a deep appreciation of the artistry and architecture of the region, Camino Riviera will replicate the wanderer’s experience. The space aims to transport guests not only visually but is set to create a full sensory experience to evoke the spirit of the Riviera Maya.


SDCM Corporate Executive Chef, Brian Redzikowski has curated an eclectic menu that integrates his unique style with Mexican cuisine. Chef Brian creates experiences that provide guests with exceptional food, but also form lasting memories and experiences that the guests come to enjoy time and time again.

At Camino Riviera, we believe that supporting community is essential in our industry and our menu features local farms and purveyors whenever possible such as Two Forks Farms and Three Boys Fishery. We also have specialty ingredients that are flown in from all over the world. Simply put, quality ingredients make great dishes.
