We've eaten here three times and really like the food. The calamari steak and fish and chips are delicious. Fries are yummy. Both meals were really, really good. I like the views from inside the restaurant next to the windows but outside seating is nice too with a sea breeze.

We dined here with the recommendation of a shop employee. What a beautiful view! Our food was quite good, starting with some delicious bread and butter. Some of the group had the Hawaiian chicken, one had fish and chips, one salmon and one had a hamburger. All the meals were very good. Our waitress was wonderful and attentive the whole... More

A bit confusing happy hour/bar arrangement. Seated right away by a fun host, but took a while to be waited on. After the slow start, service was fine. Calamari was fair, seafood bisque was flavorful, but overly thick. Rock Fish entrée was a good portion, nicely presented, but nothing notable in terms of taste. The view was exceptional.

Great day, great scenery, and very nice patio to dine and enjoy. The BLT salad is excellent, but just one of many nice entries.

We went here for dinner on a weekday evening and were promptly seated with a view of incoming boats and sailing vessels. The setting was lovely and the service was very attentive. We enjoyed a halibut dinner that was cooked to order. The setting and ambiance added greatly to the dinner

Great way to enjoy a Sunday - great food and service plus a view of an active marina. We opted not to go for the delicious looking brunch buffet and went with the regular menu. We enjoyed a delicious fish dish and a seafood salad with clam chowder to start. Service was friendly and attentive. This was our 2nd visit... More

Stick to what others recommend. I always check Trip Advisor and Yelp before picking a restaurant.. I let my boyfriend pick this time. I thought to myself, it is what it is. As soon as we sit down, Bill asks me what are the reviews online?? Based on that we ordered. Fish and Chips, Calamari Strips, Sliders. We ordered both... More

Nothing special on the food but nicely plated. The service was excellent and we really enjoyed the live entertainment. The creme brulee was pretty good. Great location and a nice place to see the sunset. We would likely return. The food was a little pricey but the portions were nice

Want a quick vacation to the islands without the cost of an airline ticket? Wind & Sea Restaurant located in Dana Point's harbor will fit the bill perfectly. While reservations in the dining room itself can be hard in this popular spot during dinner hour and especially on the weekends, opt for a table in the bar along the window.... More
