We were so excited to be there and it has an amazing atmosphere but found the food & service very ordinary and way overpriced. Over a two week holiday our "lunch" at Bubba Gumps was the most expensive meal we paid for, I had an awesome drink there, can't remember what it was but the food was very ordinary for... More

I've heard so much about this place, but at the end of the day, they shrimp is still the same. nothing out of the ordinary. the flavour is on the shrimp rather than the inside, and since you have to peel the shrimp the good taste just stays outside and all your have is under cooked shrimp. they do however...

I don't like seafood so I got the fried chicken and mashed potatoes. I reached my food and started to take a bite of the mashed potatoes and realized they were not potatoes but rice. I told the waiter and he took my plate back. He returned and said that they were out of mashed potatoes. Did they think I... More

We went on a sunny sunday and we wait for just 15 minutes in the bar with a nice, cold beer. I loved everything about this restaurant, the noise and the music, the service, the view of beach goers. My shrimps were perfect, firm but juicy, and the sauces were delicious. I liked the hot one very much. Mu husband... More

A good restaurant in Santa Monica, in a very good location (directly on the pier). We went for dinner, had to wait a little bit since the place was crowded. Staff was very nice, we talked with the two seating agents while waiting for our table, they were curious about Italy (we come from Genova). Food was good, nothing really... More

We had a late lunch here and thought the staff were friendly, efficient and really cool. We had prawns and barramundi and thought the food was tasty and fresh. The prawn bucket was particularly great. Try the cocktails which were great value. This was the perfect little pit stop on, at the end of a perfect memorable day at Santa... More
