whale watching while you dine

Limited selection dinner menu, somewhat pricey, delicious salads and main courses creatively prepared and presented. "Can do" waitstaff a definite plus. Binoculars are provided for whale watching.

We spent lunch sitting outside, facing the ocean and watching whales and enjoying great food. The turkey bacon ruben was amazing.

What a Great Discovery! Sit outside at this quaint café and you will Not be disappointed. The view is spectacular! The Fish and Chips were really good!! Service was great, even though they were Busy.

As we were driving along highway one, we were getting hungry and just happened to stop here and were so glad we did. The view is unbeatable because it feels like you are right on the edge of a cliff looking at the water. It is also nice and quiet so you can sit with your wine and just enjoy... More

Nice place to stop for a break and a meal. Gorgeous views. Nice, friendly service. A bit pricey, but the view makes up for it; it's understandable considering it's probably expensive to keep restaurants here supplied.

This is a nice place to stop for a quick lunch. Great view fro the deck, and you can watch the hummingbirds in the flowers. Servings are large. One hamburger is probably enough for two people, which is probably right because they also cost $17.

After a stay on the Big Sur coast, I had lunch at Lucia Lodge Restaurant on the way home. I had lunch on the outdoor deck on a brilliantly sunny day with great views of the coast. I had one of the best hamburgers ever. The only downside is that the food is very pricey.
