Pinchos is fantastic! The ambiance can't be beat. Located out over the water on a pier. Set reservations for about 6:30 to enjoy the sunset. Food and service is outstanding. Small place, hard to get a table, so book in advance. Well worth it.

Restaurant is totally outdoors and not very large-so it would depend on the size of your group. They do have long tables that could accommodate a moderate group. Service is excellent. If you email the restaurant, they do... More
