Paying for the sounds of the bay, outdoor seating recommended to enjoy a cocktail and some nice dinner plates. Average cuisine, good drinks, good view.... Close to nice walk to beach at Seascape, so park your car, have a bite, and talk a stroll down to the beach.

There are a few tables with an ocean view - and I thoroughly enjoyed it. :-) Swordfish was outstanding. I ordered what I thought was a carne asada burrito - what I got was a carne asada burrito with a twist - and a chicken burrito-enchilada that was outstanding. Some of the best chicken I've had in a long time.... More

If you want to find a family friendly restaurant in Aptos, this place has something for everyone. Food is good and potions are very big. My husband and I went with our 5 kids and everyone had food to take home. It is a bit expensive but you could easily split anything on the menu and have plenty for two... More

Delicious ceviche, $15.00. Wonderful dining experience. Hostess and service staff were accommodating. Beautiful food presentation. Pricey but worth it for the atmosphere and view.

We love to go here for lunch - sit on the patio and look at the ocean. We both ordered the Maria Rita- really good but kinda small. I had the chile rellenos - I have learned on previous visit to order with the sauce on the side to prevent it from getting soggy. It was very good. My husband... More

Two house drinks between us and shared a main course, over $70 with tip. Food was good, not great. Good atmosphere and great service holds this place up.

This used to be one of my favorite restaurants - I love the seafood with the Pacaific coastal fusion tastes whether that be the ceviche tostadas, seared ahi or amazing seafood salads. This was our go-to place when we had out-of-towners come to visit. Cocktails on the deck with the sunset are delightful. Our visit last month was off, but... More

The refried beans were too watery and not much taste. The rice was average and the salad was...a salad...ranch dressing was average. The guacamole was what I liked the best. It does have some ocean view...open and airy feel.
