The Wind and Sea Restaurant sits inside the entrance of the Harbor in Dana Point, California. The restaurant has inside and patio dining with large windows for indoor patrons to enjoy the scene of the water, boats, paddle boarders, and sunshine. The patio is lovely, with heating lamps and fresh air for cooler days and evenings. We had Calamari Steak... More

The Wind & Sea offers a lot of dining experiences, but I like their Sunday Brunch the best. Fresh food, extensive buffet and the price: perfect!

The views from this restaurant are very nice. The sun setting over the harbor was beautiful. The atmosphere in side was a bit loud but still enjoyable. The food was delicious. People next to us complained about their food. The waitress did everything she could to satisfy them. Even the cook came out to talk to them! Nice service. We... More

Great happy hour fish dishes and drinks. Sunday brunch has an omelet bar, eggs benedict, and other items. The restaurant is on the corner of the harbor water ways so the view is the best ever. Service is great.

I have been to this restaurant several times and I am pleased each time. Whether you are sitting outside or inside, the water view is great. My Macadamia nut crusted mahi mahi was scrumptious. The chocolate covered coffee ice cream dessert my daughter-in-law ordered was out of this world. I like to begin the evening with a drink outside watching... More

This restaurant has a dog friendly patio which we always bring our little pup to. The food is great especially the calimari rings and the seared AHI tuna. Great view of the Dana point harbor and passing boats

I was part of a group of 13 adults for dinner on a Saturday evening. Three servers were assigned to our table and they treated all of us perfectly from the moment we arrived to the last dessert. Nothing was missed from the wine order and drinks to the appetizers and main entree. The starters of calamari strips, artichoke hearts... More

Good happy hour with music and a lively crowd. Overpriced fish and steaks served by young ( ala Chart House) servers. Typically not a locals choice as there are better in the harbor but one of the best view tables right on the water that you are going to find.
