This restaurant is in an historical building with lots of character overlooking La Jolla Cove. We really enjoyed our liter of Pomegranate Mimosas (served after 11am), French Toast, Banana chocolate chip pancakes, eggs, & bacon. The smell can be a problem in this area, but the smell was not an issue when we were there. We were outside on the... More

If you sit on the patio down front, you have a nice view of the water, but can have a very unpleasant smell from the seals. You may want to sit back further. The food was rather expensive and only average to our taste.

I must admit upfront that I was wary of eating here after having walked the beach in front of the restaurant and being over-whelmed by the stench. I'm not sure if it is the seals or what, but something smelled awful. However, once we sat down at Brockton Villa, on the veranda overlooking the water, it was a beautiful dinner... More

Stopped here for brunch while visiting the beach. A good menu, breakfast dishes served until 3pm at weekends. A good selection of American favourites mixed in with mexican influence. A good vegetarian selection as well

Seeing La Jolla for the first time is an experience in it's self. It is so quaint and charming. The views from the village are picturesque. Down at waters' edge are seals paying a basking on the shore. Right above, the Brockton Villa Restaurant is located. It's location and charming exterior makes you want to sit and enjoy the view....

We had a late lunch here and it was a very nice experience. It is in front of La Jolla Cove, so the views are the best. The food is very good also!

If you are looking for a great view then by all means head to Brockton Villa and a ask for a seat on the patio or narrow porch. However, be prepared for the possibility of a MAJOR odor from the cliffs and rocks below where masses of pelicans and sea lions spend their days in the warm (and if it's... More

We went here because it looked like a great place to experience La Jolla Cove. The breakfast was lovely. It was just a shame that the hostess was not very welcoming. We asked for a table so we could see the view. We were a party of four and the table was for six. The restaurant was not busy. She... More

We sat outside which was great for the views, but bad for the bird smells if there is a breeze. The food was all good except for an overcooked halibut. The filet mignon was excellent as well as the scallops and Mediterranean salad. We also had the artichoke and crab cakes as an appetizer that were also very good. Our... More

Creative breakfast menu alongside a great ocean view and easy walk from our inn made this a perfect last vacation day choice!
