Everything we got was spectacular and the service was absolutely delightful. All the fish was incredibly fresh. The waitress was... so attentive and sweet. Ambiance was relaxed and cozy yet elevated. Would definitely recommend and will be returning. Read more

This is a not so hidden gem! Restaurant right on the beach, it's a great place for breakfast lunch or an early dinner (to catch... the sunset of course). I went for a late lunch around 3pm on a Saturday in early November. They originally told me the wait wasgoing to be 45min-hour but it wasn't busy and we were seated in 15/20 minutes. We sat in the promenade area which is set upabout 15 feet away from the restaurant. They have a few tables there with dedicated wait staff and an unobstructed ocean view!We saw dolphins and seals while waiting for our food. The main restaurant area seemed nice as well. It's elevated on a deck anddepending on where you sit you may or may not have food ocean views. Parking is a bit tricky. It's across the street and costs$5 an hour. $20 full day on the weekend and $15 mid week. The restaurant does validate which is nice. You can either walk downto the beach (about 8-10 minutes) or you can take the shuttle which costs $2 per person. Read more

Absolutely delicious! We ordered a few appetizers, a cup of soup, and dessert! Was not disappointed with anything! Probably the... best cup of clam chowder I've ever had in my life! And the beignets were just heavenly! A little work to get there as you can'tdrive directly there - you have to park across the street and take a shuttle there for $2/person each way. Beautiful beach view!Probably the best restaurant meal we had during our trip to California! Read more

A fun once in a while place to eat on the beach. Food was great as was the service. It is a bit pricey for breakfast items but... the portions are very fair and the view is great. If you are into bloody Mary's they have a very good one but it is expensive.It is almost a meal itself. Pictured below is the Corned beef hash (I've had better and wouldn't order it again), lemon ricottapancakes (very good) and an omelet with potatoes. Read more

Had a very pleasant evening tonight. Weather perfect. Waited about hour which is fine cause there's so much to do while waiting... or enjoy I should say.. we ate down the lower part and it is admirable of the waiters and waitresses working a shift down thereas they have to walk back and forth and carry trays all that way too.. I was exhausted watching her . lol.. She was so amazingand kind. Wished i remembered her name that's an issue with Me.. I forget names!! And the food was great .. if u time it rightyou'll be sitting and watching the sunset like we did .. Its weekend nights down there so it was busy .. But worth it .. Read more

This is located directly on the beach! Great location to enjoy your food with the view of the sea and the sound of waves. The... food and the service was amazing. The beignets were the best! I do recommend making a reservation ahead for a table on the sand.We will definitely be back. Read more

I had dinner here, literally right on the beach, as part of a catered corporate event. The food, staff, and (most impressive)... THE VIEWS were all lovely. Everything was perfect from cocktail hour through dessert. It got a little chilly because we wereright by the water outside, so if that's the plan for you make sure to bring a jacket (we were warned so I was prepared.)Gorgeous event and setting and I'd definitely recommend this place to anyone.

It was unexpected that both dishes were excellent, fish of the day and shrimp taco + salad. Quality and fresh food. Even the... salad with the subtle dressing was perfect. The shrimps were cooked just right to get that crunch. The beignet dessert was whatI came for. They did not disappoint. Great service, but they don’t need to check on you that often. It gets annoying.Fantastic beach sand view. Read more
