Great patio dining...even for your dog!

Love this place! Fabulous view...the food is very good (try the cocoanut shrimp), the drinks are excellent (try the long island iced tea), and best of all, there is a special little patio where you can sit with your dog...it also has a fire pit! If you are out for a walk at the harbor and you... read more

The Wind & Sea serves an all you can eat Sunday Brunch from 11AM until 2:30 PM for $14.95. They have everything from a chef cooking eggs any way you want them, pancakes, hot dishes, and incredible biscuits. The view of the Harbor with the boats coming and going is sooo relaxing. I eat there at least twice a month.... More

We ate lunch here twice. The food, service and atmosphere were excellent. We had a table by the window overlooking the yacht-filled harbor. It was quiet and conducive to conversation, which I appreciated.

During our stay in Dana Point we enjoyed two dinners at this lovely restaurant with terrific views of the harbor and good food. The staff were very friendly and look forward to going back to this restaurant on our next visit. Highly recommend.

Had lunch here on 04/16/15. Mr Romantic's lovely daughter brought her fur-baby Marlow along for the day, so we deliberately sought out Restaurants that were dog friendly. We were seated almost immediately out on their patio area assigned for diners with dogs. Only complaint is that the tables in that section are small, made to accommodate only two people. But...

Great location, on the water in Dana Point harbor. We visited for lunch and food was delicious. Had the poke appetizer..chunks of ahi, avocado layered in a tower with crispy wontons to pile the goodness upon. Served with a wasabi aioli that was perfect and tasty. I would drive miles back just to have this again. My friend had a... More

The food is good, not spectacular. You come here for the beautiful view of the harbor with a great outdoor terrace that is packed from May to September and every weekend in between. We always come early for the Happy Hour and often stay on Friday or Saturday night for the music. It is a great place to just hang... More

On Dana Point, wine, beers, mixed drinks along with sandwiches, salads and fresh fish. The Nacho Grande was just right for a late afternoon snack while watching the boats. Very good wait staff.
