Great view of the harbor and great atmosphere

Cannons has been a standard in Dana Point. Just down from the Chart house this is a great option if you are looking for a place with a great view and decent food. There is an outside patio which has an amazing view of the harbor. The food was pretty good. For a foodie you might be disappointed... read more

This restaurant has a stunning view perched on the cliffs above Dana Point Harbor. The service was very good, but I wish the food was as spectacular as the view. You're probably better off just having cocktails and appetizers.

Wonderful view on a cliff overlooking the harbor. The Happy Hour on the patio is great with lots of choices. Best for couples or groups without children. Food is always good and friendly, competent staff!

Wanted to go somewhere new with an ocean view. Looks like there is no bad table as far as the view goes. Food was satisfactory but not fantastic. Swordfish was a bit on the dry side. Service was good. Definitely will go back and want to sit on the terrace to try that out.

Went to Cannons to enjoy the beautiful view. The view was great! The food was ok, but not equal to the view. Had the fresh mahi-mahi. It was well prepared and presented, but a bit dry. The service was pleasant but slow. Empty water glasses sat for quite a while before being noticed. If you want the view, go for... More

This is the place to have good food and one of the best views in Southern California. Gazing out the window will make this a memorable experience for you and you family.

Decor is diner at best, waitresses are 50+ , and food is average. The view is spectacular and the waitresses were friendly....just not enough to bring us back.

Great seafood at a reasonable price. I had the Cioppino for dinner, it was perfectly cooked and seasoned. The service was fast, friendly and professional. The view of the harbor was also excellent. I would eat here again.

This place has stunning views while you enjoy your meal. Service was good, valet parking offered and the atmostphere is not stuffy despite it being a very high end view. I would recommend and will visit again. The food was very good and priced as expected by the views really make this place a must.
