I think I decided to move to California many years ago after a lesurely lunch at this restaurant.The food is wonderful , but it's the environment which keeps bringing me back. How many other places in the United States can you dine so close to the waves? Extraordinarily relaxing.Best to reserve ahead (though not obligatory) and ask for one of... More

Great place that combines the breath taking ocean view with delicious food and top of the line service. It is a must visit when you come to Southern California!

Absolutely, enjoyed the food and drinks but the prices are high. More than likely that is normal for California.

This is in the surf and sand hotel. The view can't be beat and the food was very good. The ambiance was very nice. I would definitely go here again!

THere probably isn't a better view of the surf from the bar and restaurant - the food is generally good - - I had breakfast, dinner and lunch there. The fish tacos were very good - - but they are just as good down the street at Wahoo's and less, less expensive. Had the egg and chorizo dish for breakfast... More

My husband and I met a friend at this restaurant for a late lunch on a Sunday afternoon as we were traveling from the Central Coast down to San Diego. The restaurant is inside the Surf and Sand Hotel. The hotel was bustling and rightfully so since it was Christmas week and was hosting many out of towers. We found... More

The restaurant is located within the Surf & Sand Resort. We ate there two times during our stay and ordered room service from them as well. Everything we ordered was correct and tasted very good. The staff were very polite and professional. Best of all, the restaurant overlooks the beach and is a little more private than some restaurants because... More

I love the location and the fact that it feels like you're on a boat you're so close to the water. Be sure to have a reservation!

The head Chef Dave created some of the best dishes we have had yet. Our table was more than impressed with all of our meal choices. The presentation and flavor of their dishes really made this a meal to remember. The views are unbeatable, you are literally on the beach! I would highly recommend this place to anyone in the...

We had the pleasure of staying at The Surf and Sand for our anniversary for one night earlier this month. Our first lunch was at Splashes, delicious ahi sandwich and our table had beautiful views of the ocean. The next morning we dined at Splashes for breakfast and I was very pleased to see Red Velvet Pancakes on the menu.... More
