We had dinner with friends in the Ventana Grill, which might have one of the best shoreline views of anywhere we've ever visited. The restaurant is perched on a hill overlooking the Pacific Ocean near Shell and Pismo Beaches. The décor is modern and pleasant and there is a nice bar for people waiting for their tables. We had a reservation so there was no delay in being seated.
The menu is a fairly short affair (just a couple of pages) but the food on the menus is wonderfully prepared. I had a salmon dish that was just superb, another guest had the sea bass (which he said was excellent) and two diners had salads. All of the food was expertly prepared and the service we received was very good.
This is definitely a place to which we will return, if not for the excellent food then for the seaviews from the outer tables.
