I am a grand mother of 2 small boys, needless to say there are not too many places to comfortably go out and eat with them. This place has very good food and a lovely outdoor seating area with plenty of room for play. We go there again and again and are always happy to be there.

My nephew lives nearby and this is their favorite place to take their young children. Eating outdoors by the beach is fantastic. One big drawback, aggressive sea gulls. Do not leave your food unguarded for even a moment or it will be attacked by hungry birds.

You will be hard-pressed to find a more family-friendly eatery than Padaro Beach Grill. Decent food, attractive grounds (most seating is outside), friendly and efficient service. The location is picturesque (beach side).

We made a quick stop here for lunch. We only wanted a light meal and so went with the House Salad and Pretzel Burger. As House Salads go this one was a pleasant surprise as there was a lot of different veggies and fruit/nuts included. Then the Pretzel Burger was lean beef and came with a bbq sauce - it... More

The food is good, not spectacular but good. The best thing about is the ambiance, there is no better location. Great place to go as a family!

We loved this place on our recent trip! I wish we had discovered it sooner. The food was wonderful. They had some healthy salad options and some good looking fish tacos too. We sometimes have a hard time finding places that are good for groups or with our five kids. This was a great location! Big outdoor eating area with... More

Sitting between the mountains and ocean outside under the sun. Gentle sea breeze, good beach food and a family friendly atmosphere. Beer on tap and wine. Not fancy, but definitely glad we stopped in.

We were in the area for one day and stopped here for lunch. Great outdoor setting. Food was great, especially fish taco. Price is very reasonable even though this is a beach-front property with a great view. You get the service with smile from very enthusiastic and helpful clerks and waiters. More so, if you love trains, you may see... More

We discovered this little gem that's only 20 miles from our home only a few months ago, but have returned several times because it's that good. What makes this place unique? Its location at the beach, but not on it. The huge sandpile that keeps the kids entertained so you can eat in peace. The tropical paradise that is the... More
