We came to Dana Point on vacation and decided to eat at a place off the beaten path, and this place was spot on! The kids enjoyed it. The service was great! I would recommend this place to anyone who wants something authentic and away from the touristy places. Good Good!

Have eaten here many times. No point in making a reservation, just wait your turn. The food is great - served quickly, nicely and HOT! Can be loud on a Saturday night.
