Something a little different

We came here based on the other reviews here. Well it was very good and nice to have something different. The service was excellent. It is very noisy because there happen to be a very large table next to us and there was live music. I'll definitely come back on my next trip and hopefully get a... read more

This has been one of our very favorite restaurants in the area. However, the last 2 times we dined there, we were a little disappointed as the dishes we previously ordered were not consistently great. We decided to go back and everything we ordered was again excellent. We learned the French owner had sold and the new owner was very... More

I had duck tacos that were to die for! So many choices that it was hard to make a choice. Two friends had different forms of eggs benedict and both loved them. Serving sizes are huge; the problem is you still want to clear your plate!

We went to this restaurant for a late lunch. We had a large group and the staff accommodated us without delay. Our food was fresh and delicious.

A great place to go if you are visiting Encinitas. They have live music and a lovely atmosphere, just like you want it in small towns like this. The food is not bad either, I had breakfast here a couple of times, and a great dinner. Not the best food ever, but totally ok. Service is good, and I recommend... More

We found the food here to be delicious, especially the salad with strawberries and goats cheese. The staff were helpful and the atmosphere is so relaxing. Its definitely worth a visit and such a short stroll to the beautiful beach.

We used to love this place but it just keeps getting worse over the years. There was a time when they changed chefs and it seemed to shake things up. We hoped they would get their groove back but it just gets more disappointing over time. Some of their dishes are still good like the wahine salad, lobster bisque, and... More

Had 5 things to eat, lobster bisque, black bean soup, calamarie, clams, and California burrito. Bisque burrito were good, rest not so much, worth going just for the burrito though
