Surprised with such a random pick! Driving through town, hungry, first place across the street from the BBQ. Nice variety of food, tons of beer and wine choices. Prices and atmosphere are good!

With little choice, and only staying the night - I crossed my fingers and was pleasantly surprised. The service was great. Clam chowder was so good. Lentil soup was great, too. Our family dined on new york strip, pasta, and salmon.

We come to Gualala once a year. We normally eat at Cove Azule because it is a nice restaurant that has the most reasonable prices of all the restaurants in town. The view is great, the food is good, and it is a relaxing meal when we come here. I have had fish and chips here (very good) and this... More

We enjoyed dinner and drinks at Cove Azul during our visit to Gualala. The steaks- mine with pasilla pepper cream sauce (to die for) and my husbands was Marsala with mushrooms. Veggies were not overcooked and the mashed potatoes were delicious. The wait staff is few, but manage the room as pros. We ordered special drinks that were a bargain... More

We walked in and no one was around but the chef and some people shooting pool in the bar. After waiting for a couple of minutes someone came out. Our experience improved. We both had a special, the stuffed salmon. It wasn't exactly stuffed but on the top was a generous amount of crab meat. The vegetables were cooked just... More

My husband got a steak and I ordered fish and chips. The food was good but we both have had better. We later found another restaurant in the same price range that was significantly better. Service was a little slow and there was only 2 other tables besides the bar in the other room. View from our table was fantastic!

We had a very nice lunch here. My wife had a crab stuffed prawn sandwich which she enjoyed. A couple of us had fried fish and hand cut fries which were good. We thought the clam chowder was good. The food was a little pricey but we enjoyed it and the view.

My husband got the seabass and I got the smothered scallops. Neither were great, very bland, tasteless food. The service was good, and views were amazing. The clam chowder was okay, I loved seeing Manchester Oyster Crackers, because we're both from Vermont originally... but when I go out for a seafood dinner, I don't want to exciting thing to be...
