“Very good breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

We didn't order drinks on our Saturday morning visit, so with breakfast at $9.95, we enjoyed a very good meal with great views and fabulous place for people watching for a little over$20.00.

“Super view, good food, bit pricey”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013 via mobile

We, family of 4 from Amsterdam ate lunch here, enjoyed the sophisticated flavors, CA wines, relaxed atmosphere and of course the View!

Eat here then go explore Coronado by cab bike (rental next door, kids love it) then return to Candelas for coffee and excellent lemon pie!

“Nice view, good food and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

Interesting menu with both traditional fare like fish and chips and more unique items like the Eggplant Tower. White and red sangria. Great mojitos last time I ate here, also! You can sit outside and enjoy the view of the bay and the San Diego skyline, while protected by the high glass windows and heat lamps, if you need them.

“For the view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013 via mobile

The view from the upper patio is superb. The whole San wDiego skyline in the sunset worth the visit. The small beach in front is quite popular for fancy weddings so a free social show may be complementary entertainment. Unfortunately the patio in general and the upper section in particular are only a small fraction of the capacity and they are in high demand. The glass panel will keep you protected from the cold wind.
The food is generally beyond average, however nothing that will stand out. A Margarita is a must. Service is inconsistent, sometimes very good, sometimes a little bit slow. All in all you can spend a quite pleasant dinner there.
Last but not least ... parking is free! However the restaurant is not cheap. Yeah... the view.
I would warmly recommend it for the tourists and locals arriving by ferry. and locals arriving by ferry.
