“Nice breakfasts with a great view.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2012

We love the breakfasts and brunches at the Bistro (Bacara). All the wait staff are amazing and trained so well. They are always on the spot when you need them. Try the french toasts offered or the potato leek hash browns, superb. Oh, and ask for Raul, he's an awesome server.

Quite the view of the ocean, quick and friendly service, tasty food. Price was a bit high, but given the setting, was expected and reasonable.

“expensive”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2012

breakfast buffet costs $32. kids buffet $16 and not much of variety to choose from. For $32 I could have had nice dinner with a better selection. OVER PRICED.
