Absolutely stunning views and great prices. A nice little spot to relax and enjoy the surrounds. Appetizers were good, not great but a very pleasant spot. Did not have dinner.

We came here to celebrate seeing our daughter after 6 months. It’s hard to beat this beautiful setting overlooking Dana Point. Our waiter was excellent- knowledgeable and friendly. We enjoyed the meals - fish and enough sides to satisfy my vegan husband. We will return.
