After waiting for about 15 minutes, the door person said our table was ready. He grabbed two menus and we followed him into the dining area. He literally dropped the menus on a table and kept walking without saying a word, looking back at us or breaking his stride. My wife and I stopped, wondering if we were supposed to... More

I also stayed at a different place and just came here for dinner - my server provided excellent and timely service, but the food turned out to be bland also, despite being in prime location, the restaurant doesn't offer much of a view (how difficult can it be to install bigger windows and a nice patio?) there's definitely room for...

If you are reading this then you're probably looking for inspiration for eating in San Simeon - lets be honest, there's not much choice here. From the moment we arrived and there was a 'song-and-dance' about us not having a reservation and with at least 30% of the tables empty we were at a complete loss as to why there... More

Stayed at a different hotel in San Simeon and decided to eat dinner and breakfast here. There aren't a lot of hotels or restaurants in San Simeon and most of the activity is 4 miles south in Cambria. Nevertheless, the BW Cavalier restaurant is quite good. Service at dinner was a bit shakey, but eventually the food and drink arrived... More

Ate here one night while staying at the Morgan hotel nearby. We had a long wait but looked at the menu while we waited outside on a lovely balmy evening. The decor is retro (not on purpose) but the staff were efficient and friendly. This is not a sophisticated place but it is still very nice and the prices are... More

We've been visiting the Cambria/San Simeon area for 18 years and a trip to the area just wouldn't be complete without at least one stop at the Cavalier for a meal at time of day. The food has always been good and the staff are pleasant and professional. Dick Howard, San Marcos, CA

We only did breakfast here. Standard fare and the wait staff seemed over worked. We had trouble getting coffee refills. Reservations were recommended to us for our group of eight, and we got seated immediately upon arrival.

It's fine if you're expecting a low quality Denny's. I've had pork chops, burgers, omelettes, fried eggs, and salads from traveling here on multiple trips- and they've all been disappointing. It's convenient if you're staying at the Cavalier, but if you have the time, drive somewhere else.

Fast and friendly service, delicious food, great views of the ocean. It was connected to the hotel so we just walked to it for dinner and breakfast. Really good hot chocolate on a cold morning.

We received breakfast vouchers from out hotel, so thought we'd try it out. The food was good, location was super convenient and our server was very sweet. Would definitely go back.
