If you are looking for a relaxing beach and to have something to eat, go elsewhere! The parking lot was full, so we had to park along the freeway, which is really dangerous. After that it's a 10 min walk to the beach and restaurant, but you have to pay a 20 USD walk in fee per person. The hostess... More

First things first. Parking is pricey. $20 whoa! So if you don't mind a walk you can park on the main road and walk into the restaurant. The restaurant itself is very casual but very nice. I saw several people walk in from the beach in their swim suites to the bar for a drink. And that's the only reason... More

This was our first stop after landing in LA. It really was a great beginning to our vacation. I highly recommend sitting outside. The food (we shared the Paella) was excellent. The drinks were pricy but fun. All in all, we really enjoyed it.

Maybe it was brilliant down on the beach - I'll never know. The road down was closed with people saying it was all full, so you had to park on the freeway (dangerous!) and then walk in. We then discovered that there was a $20 per person walk in fee (outrageous!) which you only got refunded if you paid $60... More

Great beach and a very nice restaurant with great staff. If you decide to go, be prepared to have lunch in the restaurant OR you will have to pay $40 to get out if the car park. Better off looking in here when driving north from L A to San Francisco.

We then ordered our food, 2 Tuna sandwiches (very disappointing),Sea food tower ( really immense portion of assorted shell fish), and a children's chicken finger. The total plus tip.... More

Thanks to the Tripadvisor reviews, I knew what to expect--a pricey restaurant in a beautiful area. If I had not read the reviews, I would have been really turned off by the parking fees and the food costs. Since I knew in advance what to expect, I was able to enjoy the experience. Yes, $20 for a Caesar salad is... More

It baffles me that anyone would give this place a five-star review. This is the biggest rip-off in town. I give it two stars instead of one, which is what I would have given the last time I was here. The actual restaurant service was slightly better than last time, and we had a nice table and were with good... More

Fun restaurant with great food and service and there is also a beautiful beach! The catch is that if you eat at the restaurant And validate the parking is 6 dollars if you just want to go to this beach for the day parking is $40 dollars. Our group had a great breakfast and the food and service was top... More
