Pacific Ocean View as if your dining on a cruise ship!

The Moonraker is inside the Lighthouse Hotel, food is moderate but the location is second to none! Once can sit and watch the waves, and we are not taking small or far away we are talking BIG Maverick Surf where if a storm comes in the water hits the windows where you are dining!

Great views of the waves no matter where you sit. Really good seafood dishes and perfect service. Even at night the waves are illuminated by spotlight.

We love going to moonraker on special occasions - they have many ocean view tables which are just amazing (huge picture windows so you can watch the waves crash). The food is all great especially their clam chowder. I have had seafood main dishes each time I have been there and loved every bite.

Went here for Sunday brunch. For $45 per person you get unlimited sparkling wine, Salmon Creek, sangria, or Mimosa. Buffet tables are set so you can see the waves breaking yards away from you. The crab is from the belly. Good sized oysters and prawns. All dishes have nice presentation and good quality. Blueberry waffle had tons of blueberries. Omelettes... More

We enjoyed having this restaurant contiguous to our hotel for both a dinner and a breakfast. The service was good and the menu complete.

The Moonraker restaurant is located in Pacifica on the ocean about 10 miles from San Francisco. It has easy access via highway 1 freeway. The restaurant is located above a hotel on the second floor and is entered via the lobby. We had reserved a table for 3 for lunch to celebrate the Christmas holiday's. We were seated immediately and... More

We were able to get a reservation for the same night, and were seated in a tiered section where we could see the waves crashing onto the sand right in front of the large picture windows. They had powerful lights that really highlighted the great views. Service was a bit slow, but the food was good although a bit overpriced... More

As with many hotel restaurants, the service is "superficial". The server said all the right things, but we could tell immediately, he really could not have cared less about our needs. Actually the menu has a line on it that says "we decline substitutions to the menu, but please tell us if you have special needs"!!!! I guess you can... More
