“great food, outstanding view and atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

We had a Hawaiian ahi salad, and apple empanadas as dessert there were crispy and delicious. Portions are enough to satisfy but not huge, and the price is not as expensive as some other obscure restaurants in the region with less views and bad food. The view is breathtaking, there is a lot of seating outdoor with views for all of them, and the service is outstanding. It was one of the best times we had in an outdoor restaurant.

“Cocktails with a Blue View”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2013

Our first stop was the Ritz in Dana Point, the location is amazing! Right on the Bluff overlooking The Pacific Ocean. We had a Kettle One & Grapefruit and by chance it was Ruby Red Grapefruit which is my favorite. Not a weak pour either. Very Nice. We also tried the fish tacos with fresh swordfish---They were great. I have to admit the view was the best from this location. It was very busy but worth the wait.

“Best Place to Watch Sunset”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

It gets crowded, so go early. Great service! Good drinks. THey offer blankets to those who get chilly after the sunset. We didn't eat the food, but looked good. They had an entertaining guitar player/singer.
