This is a great way to spend half a day at the well-known, popular Paradise Cove. While at first I was shocked at the $40 to park sign, I quickly learned that by eating at the fabulous restaurant, it would only be $6 to park for up to four hours. Turns out this is not only a restaurant, but an... More

The $6 carpark was full so they opened up valet parking for the same price, a good move !!!! The restaurant was full and we were told a 40 min wait time was on the cards.There was a barrel of free peanuts (which you needed to shell), this helped pass the time. After 18 mins we were seated and ready... More

Private beach, nice restaurant, beautiful, clean beach. Bring $40 and a good book. Surf gear or just go swimming in the cold Pacific.

Food was great and a lot of it. It can be a little pricey but they fill you up so come hungry or share something. Parking can be a bit of a pain and it is $6 so be prepared for that. Great atmosphere and view.

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
