Entering Carrillo Dining Commons is a multi-sensory experience. Customers are immediately treated to the delicious aroma and warm sight of fresh pizza baking in a Woodstone pizza oven.  Natural light from the outside floods the dining areas which offer mountain, ocean and pool views. Previously a typical 1960’s style cafeteria, Carrillo was transformed in 2002 to a state of the art dining facility featuring 21st century cuisine prepared at platforms stations throughout the building. Serves breakfast, lunch and dinner Monday-Friday, and brunch and dinner Saturday and Sunday.
