Went after being recommendaed by a friend who went there last year. Had to wait for about 45 minutes to be seated and this was on a Thursday evening! The bar was very busy too so had to stand in the corner. To be honest we did not mind as the place was very pleasant and the atmosphere was lovely,... More

We waited an hour for a table on a Friday night. During the wait we stood in the cocktail area and had excellent service. Dinner included tortillas, rice and pinquito beans. The fair was mexican fusion seafood. Local wine list was decent. The diver scallop and prawns were excellent.

The food has a mexican/spanish flair and is quite good! My husband and I went to lunch on our first day in Pismo Beach and had a booth by the windows and a magnificent view of the Pacific Ocean. It was a very romantic lunch and pleasing to the tummy. I loved my chimmichanga! We went for dinner the with... More

We enjoyed a fantastic meal at this restaurant which was next door to our hotel. We had a 45 min wait as we had not booked ahead but this was eased by a complimentary glass of champagne and helpful host staff. The food was quick to appear and tasted delicious. One thing to note is that he waiting staff do... More

Everything worked here from the start. Though there was a 30 minute wait, we were directed to the terrace overlooking the Pacific Ocean to watch the sunset with cocktails...Fabulous!! Once seated, the service was exceptional and the view of the ocean and cliffs were breathtaking!. My wife had the sea bass and I had the steak. Both were prepared perfectly... More

This was my highlight of our stop in Pismo on the drive down to San Diego, (it certainly wasn't the hotel) but my brother in law chose this based on the other feedback and what a great choice. We hadn't booked but if you're going after 7, would recommend it as it was packed when we left. I love seafood,... More

Recommended for visitors and residents alike. The meals are excellent and the service to be praised. The dishes have a Mexican influence with fusion touches. They start you with homemade tortillas and their own sauces. One in our group had a cobb salad with among other things a taste of chorizo and chipotles. I had soft tacos with pollo pibil... More

Restaurant with great food and views of the coast. Very busy with long waits, but worth it. Major bar scene with many locals.
