Outdoor seating right on the promenade above the beach. The food is good with large portions. Good place for people watching when the sun in shining. Avila Beach is a warm spot on a coast that can be coolish.

What else matters? Like the great view of the beach and Pacific Ocean? HDTVs all over the joint? Basket of fries that is very generous? Bartenders with energy and a sense of humor?
