We were exhausted when we got checked into the hotel, so this seemed the best choice for dinner our first night. We both had very good meals. My salad even had twice the amount of crab on it than the one at a much fancier...More

We always eat at the Cavalier when in San Simeon. The service is good and the food is always top notch at a slightly less expensive price. I just wish they had more of a view!

Had dinner. Scallops were excellent, pesto chicken was great. Margaritas were very good. Service was fantastic. Price was about right. For a small place in the middle of no-where, what more could you want?
