I've eaten here several times before but this is the first time since rennovation. Menu is less varied but it is being enlarged. Food is very nice, service is great, atmosphere unforgetable with an excellent view of the rocky coastline and setting sun.

I’ve heard mixed reviews on this place but five of had a wonderful lunch. The seafood salad with mounds of shrimp and crab was delicious. The Calamari was a steak cut in strips and lightly coated, great service and what a view. We highly recommend.

We went for dinner at the beginning of July 2017. Sat outside--big mistake. Its very cold in California until to get done to like L.A. Food was good but the scenery is outstanding.
