Amazing view, excellent food, great service and a unique ambiance. Really recommend this place. We had a blast! Besides Sausalito is a little charming place that it’s worth visiting.

Expect stunning views from the outdoor dining, especially if you have great weather. Expensive and you could probably say slightly overpriced food but extremely tasty! Fabulous and attentive service.

We parked next to the tiny but beautiful Vina Del Mar Park. A paid parking lot. We went to a few shops along the way. Or you can park on the street if you can find a spot.
