Snack time

Since we were staying there we decided to have a snack. My husband the tomato bisque soup and I had the rock shrimp ceviche. We wanted to come back at night to have a couple drinks but there was a company function going on so it was packed and we could get a seat.

Coronado is a spectacular beach and the Hotel at Coronado where princes and stars have stayed for decades is simply beautiful. The restaurant Sheerwater that sits almost on the beach is a treat. Although we are on the second tier, the seaside ambiance surrounds us. First tier has those incredible heaters but second is fine. Our waiter us attentive and... More

Excellent service, great food! Make sure you have reservations, though... Eating outside you can see the ocean, eating inside it's sort of close quarters.

We dined at Sheerwater while seeing the sites in the Coronado area. The food was delicious but the portions were small. Maybe I'm just not accustomed to food of this class. I ordered the scallops and pork belly and a 9oz glass of merlot. My bill was $61 before gratuity. The meal was good but I've had similar for half... More

Outstanding views of the Pacific Ocean. Great to eat and drink on the deck and watch the sunset. Food and service are outstanding. Prices are high. Lunch for 4 with one drink each will run over $120. Remember, you are paying for the views and atmosphere. Make sure to roam through the hotel.

Wow! What a beautiful location. I had lunch with friends and we sat outside overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Breathtaking! We shared a bottle of an Italian Pinot Grigio. Light crisp wine on a beautiful sunny day. Two of us had the knife and fork fish taco which came with sea bass and a huge shrimp. Delicious.! Our other friend had... More

A beautiful setting just steps from the sand and ocean. Pleasant environment and waitstaff. The shrimp cocktail was amazing. Huge shrimp! For the main course I had the cioppino. It was tasty. Not as good as others I've had in the SF Bay Area, but good nonetheless. Only downside was high prices, but someone else was paying 😎

We were very impressed by the servicr, food and setting. This is a must if you're in san diego. The food was amazing. The crab cakes and cheese appetizer was delicious, best ever had. I had the ribeye steak and it was absolutely melt in your mouth good.

Beautiful place overlooking the ocean ( you can see see the ocean). Excellent service . Outside the hotel del Coronado. Simple menu but great options. The peach bruschetta for appetizer was great. Beautiful plate presentation. The fried shrimp dish was great. Big shrimp in a very tasty mild sauce. The Cesar - Chicken salad was fresh and it looked beautiful.... More

We stayed at the Del and so ate here three times. Each time I was very impressed by the quality and selection of the food. My favorite dish was the Mahi Mahi sandwich that I had for lunch. Perfection on a bun. The breakfast buffet is expensive, but as you would expect, they do a very complete spread and it... More
