Welcome to Deckmans en el Mogor!

It is our goal to share with you the sustainable Experience that is #projectmogor Unless otherwise noted, our wines are from Baja California specially from Cavas del Mogor and winery neighbors 6.5 miles around.

All of our vegetables are produced in our 3 family farms that supply our restaurant. We keep bees in all 3 farms believing strongly in propagating pollinators. Olive oil is extra virgin and from our own production. Our fish and seafoods are sourced sustainably and 100% from the Baja Peninsula.

Our salt is from San Felipe. Our cheese from our friends at Castilla Real in Ojos Negros just 21 miles as a crow flies from where you are sitting. Our beef is Mexican, and sourced from Family Contreras in Sonora, pasture raised and responsible. Lamb is estate grown here in Rancho Mogor. Our quail and pork come from Rancho Guacatay and Rancho Codacano, 2 of our most important partners.

We only serve beer from Agua Mala brewery. They are a local, responsible brewer; not only in ingredient sourcing, but in water and waste management.

We strive to be as sustainable as possible, and therefore do not offer commercial bottled waters or soft drinks. We make Kombucha and utilize a drinking water system that allows us to use washed and sterilized bottles again and again. We recycle our waste water for irrigation use, and we compost our organics and recycle solid wastes to our maximum abilities.

All of our food is prepared to order, maximizing freshness and quality. Please advise us of any special dietary needs you may have. We are more than happy to comply.

Thank you for being part of the sustainable table that is Deckmans en el Mogor. Remember, daily you vote with your fork! Choose wisely! This is Slow Food, not fast food.

Buen Provecho.
