We ate dinner at OPI on our anniversary at the end of December, and we had a very nice time. We both had the No Work cioppino, and it was delicious. The moon was full, so we could see the fishing boats bobbing in the waves as we ate our dinner. This made for a very romantic atmosphere. The service... More

We used to eat here while vacationing on the central coast and it was always such a treat. We have since relocated and deciced to return to an old favorite. What a bummer! Winter hours are short and when we showed up at 4:30 they were closed. So, we waited until 5 and we were quickly seated in their beautiful... More

This authentic, friendly, old-school restaurant does it right. The setting has character, mystery, and old-world charm. It is a family-owned business, and it wears its scars proudly while doing seafood up the way it should be. Allow me to laugh at those that who doubt their ability to produce good seafood. I grew up on the Texas Gulf Coast. I... More

I couldn't disagree more with the reviews below. We drove the PCH and this was one of the best places we ate. The service was very friendly and they put us right next to the window at the end of the pier while the sun was setting. This is not a touristy restaurant on a pier like you will have... More

Nothing special here...This place must make ends meet, by sucking in out-of-town tourists thinking they are in for a fresh seafood dining experience while overlooking Avila Bay. Unfortunately, once inside the restaurant the views are nothing special, the seating is on patio furniture, and the menu is very limited. The seafood entrees are lacking in flavor and presentation, service is... More
