We were driving our way up from LA to Monterrey and by accident stopped by Lucia Logde. Menu card is limited, we were advise to take fish and chips among some other suggestions. Food was excellent, service, equally good... And the view is out of this world.

My husband and I stopped for lunch at this oceanside spot in quaint Lucia on Hwy 1 between Carmel and Cambria. We weren't expecting low prices, but for a $16.50 hamburger and $24 "World's best" fish-and-chips, we were at least expecting tasty dishes. The burger was dry and tasteless, the fish run-of-the-mill and the fries made Burger King's something to... More

Stayed for lunch. Very friendly staff and fast service. A small menu card but excellent food. Took the fish and chips, a delicious choice. This is quality food! And of high quality is the outstanding view.

Drove down Highway 1 from Montery to Santa Barbara. Stopped for lunch at Lucia Lodge. Got a place at the bar-table towards the Ocean. While we sat there eating a very good plate of salat we watched Humpback whales just some 100 meters from us very close to the beach. And a lot of birds on the sea. So there... More

Very nice menu, excellent food, I think dinner only but not sure about lunch. Continental breakfast for guest of the lodge only. Beautiful ocean view. If not in a rush you will have a very nice time.

Staying in the cabin, we decide to eat our lunch at the restaurant (there is not a lot of choices in the middle of nowhere). Because of this and because the scenery was marvellous, we thought that the price would be extremely high or the food mediocre. But no... You can find better tables in New York or San Francisco,...

Went here for dinner. This restaurant doesn’t have a lot of competition but that doesn’t mean they take the easy way out, the food was delicious. They give you some bread when you get there, which was good. I had the sockeye salmon salad which was very good. And the view is amazing. There was only one other customer in... More

Quick! What do you think of when you hear 'California lifestyle'? For me, it is laid back and easy with an ocean view. And that's what we got at Lucia Lodge Restaurant. Sure, the staff is a little more relaxed than your regular chain eatery, but our waitress was attentive and sunny in disposition. The menu was a little pricey... More

Fortunately, the scenery was beautiful and the whales were breaching otherwise we would have left long before our meals arrived. This was honestly the worst service we have ever experienced at a restaurant. Where do I begin? As soon as we sat ourselves at the rail the couple to the right of us warned us that we should expect to... More

We stopped here on our way down the coast from San Francisco. Service was excellent. Our food was delicious, a bit pricey but the food & view were well worth it!
