The lunch menu was awesome especially when it was raining, soup was on the menu with a half sandwich. The second best Lobster Bisque I've eaten. Of course the first was in Caymen Brac.

A very late lunch here on a weekday (after failing to find an open non-chain restaurant in Los Osos). The view could not get better, and the glass wall was a dealmaker on a blustery day. Service was pretty good for the three tables outdoor which were occupied. A "salmon bagel" was served do-it-yourself style and had a very generous... More

We ordered the Everything Bagels and cappuccinos this morning. The cappuccinos were actually lattes and arrived cold. The server insisted that they were cappuccinos and did not offer to warm them. The Everything Bagels were presented as build-you-own and included days old wilted spinach and lettuce, melons and pineapple that looked like they'd been sliced a week ago. When told... More

We sat outside with our dog, it's a great view of the bay and the weather was perfect as it is most of the time at Morro Bay. I had the Clam Chowder Bread Bowl and my wife had the Tortilla Soup Bread Bowl. The service was great and the soups were really good also. The prices were normal for... More

Had an early lunch at the bistro with my husband and son. We ordered sandwiches and a Mexican dish which were very delicious. Am counting my calories, quite happy that this bistro offers "half-sandwiches" in their menu (half of the standard sandwich size but the plate was full of greens and veggies). Quite lucky that a couple of country singers... More

We tried this place for the first time because it had a nice view of the water, but wished we hadn't. The service was TERRIBLE. When we got there, there is no on to greet you and seat you, so you wonder around, then go inside looking for someone.(watching other people come - they had the same problem - wondering... More

We ate brunch here on a Monday morning. The servers were attentive as it was not very busy. Ordered the country benedict and it was good although the gravy was pretty bland. The sausage and homemade biscuit saved it. The home style potatoes were good although not very warm. The huevos rancheros we ordered were good. Overall, nothing overwhelming and... More

How can you not love this place with the views that are on offer. The staff are very nice and the food is of good quality. The only "problem" I'd say is that they don't stay open long enough (closing on a Sat night at 7.30pm). Other than that I would recommend it. Just get there early and enjoy the... More

My wife and I went for a lunch time visit and tried the lobster bisque and a shared salad, which we both thought was fairly ordinary, even although the restaurant has apparently won awards for its bisque!

Spectacular views and outdoor tables make this "Bistro on the Bay" a perfect spot to relax, enjoy a latte or organic coffee and hot breakfast.Breakfast is served all day. In addition to the indoor seating, there are 18 outdoor waterfront tables to enjoy watching the seals, otters, pelicans and other nature as well as watching the sailboats drift by. There is soothing live weekend entertainment in the morning and it gets a bit kicked up in the afternoon during happy hour and they have their own house wine among a great wine list. The scene is gorgeous and a glassed in area is provided to enjoy the outdoors when it is windy. Sunset is beautiful from this location while dinner is served. Fresh local seafood is the main dish along with pastas and fresh salads.
