Comfy chairs (along the walls), great food

We just had a very nice dinner at Cove Azul. Attentive service. Relaxed atmosphere. Unique seating with cozy L-shaped chairs. Ocean view (over the road and buildings). Good vegetarian selections- the artichoke heart pasta with sun dried tomatoes in a cream sauce was quite good. My guy loved the... read more

Good vegetarian selections- the artichoke heart pasta with sun dried tomatoes in a cream sauce was quite good. My guy loved the prawn sandwich. The fries were wonderful. We will definitely go back.

This restaurant is upstairs on the east side of Hwy1. By the name, we assumed it would be Mexican, but it not. There is a pool table in the bar with at least one TV. The restaurant has 5 TV's with the sound turned down, thankfully. Two were showing cartoons for the kids and two had sports. The last one... More

This place was so nice, the view was awesome of the ocean, and the food was amazing. The waitress was a hoot, she was telling us about the wild boars around the countryside. We met the nicest local couple that eats there frequently. They retired there and built a home from the wood around their property. Delicious, relaxing and must... More

A nice little sports bar with very comfortable couches. I liked the place because they have a separate bar and restaurant area, which allows you to just have a couple of beers or enjoy some food. The food quality was very good, the menu represented classic bar food. We talked to another couple who loved their mixed drinks. So a... More

Alice and I dine here frequently, and the food and service is always good. Often we are in a group of ten to twelve, and everything still comes out great. The sports bar is physically separated from the restaurant, so you never notice what is going on there with the TV or pool table. My favorite dish is their version... More

I've been to this restaurant several times over the years and it never fails to satisfy. The view is wonderful, the food is delicious (definitely try their clam chowder), the wait staff is friendly and the prices are reasonable.

This is a nice place for a very casual meal but it is set up much like a sports bar. The bar itself is separated from the dining room but there are at least five televisions in the dining area. There's a view of the coast from some tables. Casual dining such as fish tacos and burgers but nicely done.... More

This place is in the process of converting from a restaurant (Cove Azul) to a sports bar (Carbajal's); at present it is somewhere in between. The location is convenient, upstairs in a small mall on the east side of CA1. When you get up the stairs there are two doors; if you choose the bar entrance, proceed carefully: there is... More

We come to Gualala every year and usually go to Cove Azul. Their food is good and their prices are excellent compared to other places in Gualala. It has a great view too. This time I had the Artichoke and Sun Dried Tomato pasta. It was in a creamy sauce that was perfect. A wonderful dish! My husband had a... More

Cool little spot that serves everything, as unfortunately Bones look more fun but only has beer. Clean friendly environment with a view. Cool bar and nice lounge. Pool table and great music. Amazing knowledgable bartender with a friendly demeanor and skills.
