We went to this at for snacks and drinks. Our female bar tender was great yet the male bartender was very annoying and rude. According to him he is training for triathlons, always has hot chicks, makes bank working two jobs and on and on....he needs to shut up. No one cared and we were there to speak to each... More

Fairly nice view of Pacific Ocean. Indoor and outdoor dining. Nice place. Great service. Excellent food. Had lunch, shared the Calamari, best I ever had and had just a burger with some sort of cheese, it was fantastic. Friend had mahi sandwich which she thoroughly enjoyed. Highly recommend for lunch!

Attended business dinner with a group on the terrace. Excellent food! I had the ahi tuna and I would say it was the best tuna I have EVER had. I don't say that lightly. Others had the filet mignon and salmon. All raved about the food. Great view and venue for group on the terrace. Well done.

Incredible food, amazing ambiance, awesome service! Weather permitting, sit outside. Extensive menu choices, but not too huge to be intimidating. Lots of sea food, plenty of beef choices, chicken and veggie are all included, and all prepared in the most yummy, creative way!

We arrived a little before 6 PM on a Friday night and were able to snag a great table up front with lovely views of the ocean. The early hour also allowed us to take advantage of their early seating deal which saved us some money. The service was excellent and our waiter was a lot of fun! All of... More

What a lovely view. I had the Ahi noodle salad and it was very good. We had a few waiters (and possibly a manager) try and take our plates with half of the food remaining on them but we were finally able to finish our meal. They weren't rude though. We laughed about it. Would return.

This is a must when in Del Mar, especially if you can go on a Sunday or Monday evening. Eat in the bar and watch the sun set as you enjoy all night happy hour...even their small plates are 1/2 price! The house olives reminded me of Spain, and a bowl of the house marinated gems was $4.50 or $2.25... More

The Eggs Benedict was very good. My friend had the cinnamon French toast and it was excellent. They have $3 mimosas on Sunday and a beautiful view overlooking the ocean.

We had a team gathering there in April, 2015. It's a late lunch (around 2pm) with 14 people. The staff were very kind and patient (i.e. you know how usually people talk to each other in a big party and no one really pay attention to waitor/waitress), help taking care of all our requests. The ocean view from patio is... More
