From fine dining to deli-style sandwiches, these Yosemite restaurants give satisfying endings to adventure-filled days.

For information and reservations, visit www.travelyosemite.com.

The Majestic Yosemite Hotel. The former Ahwahnee hotel’s dining room is famous for its lavish Sunday brunches, but regular breakfast is good here, too. Reservations recommended. “Resort casual” attire―e.g no shorts or tank tops. $$$$.

Mountain Room. At Yosemite Valley Lodge, not as picturesque as the Majestic Yosemite Hotel but good for steak; good wine list. $$$.

Big Trees Lodge Dining Room. Delightfully old-fashioned, both in setting and menu: pot roast is a favorite here. In summer, the Saturday evening outdoor bbq is a must. $$$.



Castillo’s Mexican Restaurant. Local favorite. 209-742-4413. $.

Savoury’s. Casual dining with an international twist. (209) 966-7677. $$$.


Erna’s Elderberry House. Austrian-born Erna Kubin-Clanin has brought European haute cuisine to the Sierra foothills. (559) 683-6800; www.chateausureau.com. $$$$.
