Great spot

Wow what a great little restaurant in an awesome historic villa. The staff were really accommodating and the food was fantastic, we could have sat here all day. The only little thing is the smell...

I love this place. The food is always amazing. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable. They also have a sister restaurant called Beaumonts in Birdrock..

View is nice. Food was alright. Service was slow even though they were not busy. Male waiter wasn't great and seemed annoyed we had children. Female waitress was very nice and helpful. I know it's not their fault but smell really was bad! I would go somewhere else next time.

Enjoyed the food, service was good, we sat on the balcony which was a bit chilly and exposed to the smells of the sea lions. I'd return but would need to sit inside.

This restaurant has fantastic views of La Jolla cove. The service was terrible. Our waitress kept forgetting things. My partner and I had lobster rolls. The lobster had so much mayo in it I couldn't taste it. Overall good location, food and service didn't impress.

We were looking for a light and rapid lunch in a beautiful location and this fitted the bill perfectly. My wife and I had a delicious open lobster sandwich washed down with Sauvignon blanco and I also had a cup of chowder which was the best of several consumed in this trip - rightly described by the menu as "epic"....

I went for the first time last month with family from out of town. While the view of La Jolla Cove as great, the odor was atrocious. The community really needs to clean up the area from the sea lions, etc. While the food was good, it wasn't great and definitely not good enough for me to get past the... More

You cannot go wrong here! We were there for dinner which was delicious. Every one of our meals was fresh and well balanced. We had the Famous Coast Toast for dessert and I thought I was going to lose my mind! So light and rich! Just a great all around restaurant.

Booked for lunch today for family of 2 adults and 3 teens, quite rigid on what they'll serve you for lunch, scrambled eggs are ok, omelettes are not. Hostess seemed bored and Server couldn't really be bothered with us, and we kept having to call him over to get more drinks. Brockton villa know they have good food in a... More

World famous level of food and sunset view. Scallops were the best and their salads were good. The coast toast dessert was a great treat. The smell of the ocean is quite strong though.
