I took my husband to dinner for his birthday and the location is lovely. We got a nice table over the water. We shred a caesar salad and it tasted like the pre-made packets from the market. Some romaine, a few bites of parmesan cheese...More

This is a perfect place for lunch or dinner with your significant other. Food is great as it's the service. There's not a table without the view.

Had a nice water view table but was a bit foggy out. The waiter was attentive and food good. You have to pay $8 to park.

field, and often crowded with beach-goers lounging on
towels and playing volleyball. Other coastlines still
feel secluded, tucked under tall cliffs and dotted
