Romantic Dinner for Two on the Beach

We had such an incredible dining experience at Pamela's in February of 2015. We stopped in for a late dinner after being given the recommendation by someone at our hotel. We sat at a table on the beach, had drinks from the bar (piña colada and strawberry daiquiri - both were great.) Warm bread... read more

I was very close to canceling my beach front table reservation as the reviews did not give me a positive feeling...I could have saved a lot of money if I had followed my instincts. If it is at all windy do not ask for a beach table, we got blown away, not the restaurants fault. The service is not that... More

A group of 14 of us descended upon Pamela's about 5:00 p.m. from our cruise ship for cocktails and appetizers. They graciously offered to set up tables on the beach for us. Great hospitality and atmosphere! Only one word of caution: Take the OFF or some type of bug repellent to keep from getting sand flea bites.

We were recommended to try this restaurant by our hotel concierge who handled the reservation. Unfortunately they must have used an on line app for the reservation because after our cab delivered us to the restaurant, we found out that the entire inside had been reserved for a private party. Unfortunately the weather was overcast and breezy with a forecast... More

Pamela's has seating right on the beach with a great view of the ocean. It is in Ocean Park, which is a gated community, so it is very difficult to get to and to find parking. The food is good. I wouldn't rave about it. It is somewhat pricey. The staff was accommodating and friendly. If you're looking for a... More

Went yesterday, nothing greater than a romantic dinner facing the ocean. Food quality is ok. Great service by Ruben. Ask for him.

This place was really quaint and the food was really good. We stayed at the hotel where is was located in. You also had a choice of dining right on the beach if you wanted. Which we did also. Really good food and seems it is in an area that a lot of gays live. Nice area with beautiful houses... More

Started off getting 3 glasses of wine for the ladies asked for white and he brought out 3 red after checking multiple times, but after that mix up which we just let slide,the service was great. My water was never empty and food was good. Alberto was our server and he did an amazing job besides the beginning mix up.
