They do not serve them any longer! Really disappointing. HOWEVER, their food is abundant and delicious. Friendly staff - great place to hang.

Really great food! Cold beer, great wine list. A Treasure in Trinidad. If we lived closer, we'd be regulars!

Meal one: Blackend Hawaiian fish with salad and rice - very good. Meal two: Fish and chips with a great cold slaw (has a secret ingredient). Wonderful food overall. Also small general store with clothing and other items for sale.

We were pleasantly surprised. Quaint, good food, good service. They even have a nice little gift shop that sells yummy fudge. the only complaint was that it was a little way from the beach, so no views, but the delicious food and fast friendly service made up for it. I was even surprised at how fast our service was for... More

As far as we could tell this was the only thing open in town by the time we were ready to eat. It wasn't that late, so maybe we weren't searching very well. But this was exactly the kind of place we wanted... Casual with great food. The waitstaff were welcoming and enjoyable. The food was good (I kept it... More

We were a little hungry and ahead of schedule. Trinidad is a quaint little town but appeared to be very "trendy". Nice little eatery. Slow service, average food, nothing at all special except the price. We paid for stopping at a "quaint" café.

All the restaurants around Trinidad are expensive. This one had lackadaisical service and so so food, but it is very convenient to the beach.

My wife and I ravel a fair amount, and have had the good fortune to eat in some of the world's best restaurants, regardless of price. I have spent my entire professional career in the hospitality industry, so I know the differences between okay, good, great, and "avoid." We have discovered that we have a love for the Redwood Coast... More

The food was not bad and a little overpriced but the fresh seafood was definitely a highlight. We'd just walked the shoreline and saw the empty crab clam and mussel shells on the beach nearby. I chose the Cioppino which was a little too spicy with the clam chowder on the side. While we were waiting for dinner we visited... More

The light house and views over that spectacular seascape are great! (Hopefully you land with sun) The breakfast is average, and the hot chocolate is artificial. They do have an Espresso bar in the little gallery/shop next to the restaurant though. Try that. I would visit just for the views at the light house. Worth a stop!
