We started with a glass of wine and the freshest oysters. Our cocktail waitress was fantastic. The view of the sunset, perfect. We moved on to dinner. We ordered different entrees and we both agreed that we chose winners. Fast and friendly service.

This place has the biggest and bet Sunday brunch I've ever seen. You can have anything from omletts to seafood to roast beef. It's amazing.

We stayed at the Best Western next door and had a dinner and a breakfast here. Each meal was better than expected with great service. The view is awesome as the tables point out towards the ocean. We will be back next time we visit Pacifica.

Yes, I had some of the same thoughts as Joseph and almost did not climb the stairs to the dining room. What a mistake that would have been. This was truly a fine dining experience in every sense of the word. Obviously the view as you sit facing the Pacific waves against the sea wall would be enough for many... More

I was skeptical of this restaurant when it was selected for dinner after a nearby swim meet. After all, restaurants with spectacular views sometime have good food and service, but usually not--since they can sit back and get customers with the view. So, strike one. It's in a hotel; strike two. The hotel is a Best Western (in the US)--not... More

I have previously reviewed this restaurant, noting the significant improvement since the new owners have taken over (approx 3 years ago). During the past two weeks my wife and I have had repeated meals at Moonraker. It is certainly the best eating place in Pacifica. Breakfasts were solid and tasty at reasonable prices. The pig-out brunch buffet on Sunday morning... More

We had a drink in the lounge. The view of the ocean at sunset was spectacular. The had a band that was OK, nothing great. The menu looked high priced so we did not eat here but enjoyed having a drink here.

Attached to the best western lighthouse hotel. Overlooking the beach. Has a bar and a separate dining area. Food was excellent. Service was very good . A little pricy but worth the treat.

We went to the Moonraker for happy hour and had appetizers and drinks, intending to dine later. I had the crab cakes and Caesar salad which were both delicious and in fact it was enough for a meal. My husband had shrimp which was also delicious. It was very busy in the restaurant as there was a football game on... More
