Terraced above the beach, with waves breaking just 25 feet below, the casually elegant Splashes Restaurant boasts some of California's best views and finest cuisine. Whether seated in the dining room or alfresco on the palm-shaded patio, you'll enjoy American Coastal Cuisine set against a dramatic backdrop of the Pacific Ocean.
We ate at Splashes twice while staying at the Surf and Sand. Both times we were seated at our reserved time. Covid distancing is good. Wait staff are efficient and attentive. Burgers were good, the charred Octopus appetizer was delicious. Food prices are decent, drinks...on the pricey side.More
We visited Splashes several times because we stayed at the surf and sand hotel. This bar and restaurant is situated right over the top of the beach it’s so beautiful wow what have you and the staff and the chef is amazing
Made reservations at 5:00 on Saturday. The hostess suggested we arrive 10 minutes early and we were seated at an ocean front table with the most incredible views. Viktor was our server and he was incredibly attentive as was the rest of the staff. The...food was superb. My husband went for the ribeye special and it did not disappoint. I had the scallops and they were divine. We had a very leisurely dinner (2+ hours) and never felt rushed. Watched an incredible sunset. We felt very safe. All of the staff wore masks as did guests who were not seated. There are hand sanitizers everywhere (even in the elevator). I did not see any one (staff or guests) not wearing a mask.More
This restaurant was fantastic. The spectacular view alone makes going here worth it, but the food heightens the experience. But what made my anniversary even more memorable was our server, David. By far the most enjoyable part of dinner. He clearly knew his stuff when...it came to the menu, was attentive and kind but most of all, just a wonderful person. Thank you David more making our night!More
Corona Virus Super Spreader hotel & restaurant. We made a dinner reservation at Splashes. While having dinner we observed at least 90% of the people not wearing masks walking around the hotel, walking in from the pool area through the restaurant, in the restaurant, bathrooms,...getting in the elevators, etc. I expressed my concern to the dining room manager named Sam and his response was that they cannot force people to wear masks. The hell they can't. A customer walked up to the blonde hostess at Splashes and said sorry I forgot my mask. The hostess said, oh it's okay. No, it's not okay. This hotel/restaurant only cares about the $$$$. They could care less about your health, my health, their employees health. We cancelled a reservation we had at the hotel after learning that masks are not enforced. They have also lost a customer at Splashes restaurant. They completely ruined our dinner. We will never return to such a careless establishment. Shame on you Surf and Sand. You should care more about your customers and employees. Your Corona Virus Super Spreader hotel & restaurant are not worthy of any customers! We plan to stay at the Ritz Carlton instead.More
A special place on the Sea is what you get at this California classic beachfront spot. Crashing surf at your feet with breathtaking views, Funky parking and an elevator to get to the spot, but worth the journey. Crowded in summer.
Let me start off by saying our server David was the best! From the beginning, he made us feel at ease and we got along with him very well. Great recommendation of wine and food, and we also bonded over our shared love of Star...Wars and the Mandalorian. The lobster bisque was DELICIOUS! So rich and buttery and creamy and the petite filet was perfectly cooked. He had a great sense of humor and personality and honestly, he vibes with our group so well. The views were awesome, and we had a secluded spot on the patio area. I would definitely come back again! Thanks David for making our 1st visit here one to remember and come back for!More
My husband and I discovered this place thru friend’s recommendation.What an awesome find! We live in OC for over 40 years and did not know this gem exists.The food was extraordinary. The service, by our waiter Victor, was flawless and the atmosphere, with a view...and the sound of the ocean was amazing. Definitely deserves 5 star rating. Highly recommend and we will be back soon for sure.More
