where to eat in avila

I'll be in Avila Beach late October........love great food and wine. Do we need to travel for dinner or is there somewhere in town?

I've eaten at the Olde Port Inn. It's a nice seafood restaurant right on the pier at Avila Beach. Their wine list is pretty good.


If I were you, I'd travel to Pismo Beach and eat at the Seaventure. Pismo is about 10 miles south of Avila Beach.

About 5 minutes away from Avila Beach is the Sycamore Springs Resort, they have a very good restaurant there with great food and wine called the Gardens of Avila, we dined there this past Sat. and really enjoyed the entire experience here.

Right in downtown Avila, The Custom House looked very good when we peeked in there and I have heard great things about it, the guy at the Inn at Avila Beach said it changed hands awhile back and is doing very well, it is less formal than the Gardens of Avila. Enjoy, we loved the area when we visited for the first time this past weekend. :)

Olde Port Inn restaurant is at the end of the Hartford Pier, which sits across San Luis Bay from the town of Avila Beach. Great views looking back toward Avila and the Pismo Beach areas.

The Custom House is also an excellent choice as is the Gardens of Avila at Sycamore Mineral Springs.

Other nearby choices in Pismo include Lido at Dolphin Bay Resort, Marisol at the Cliffs Hotel, Pelican Point at Shore Cliff Lodge.

If you enjoy German food, Old Vienna in Shell Beach (Pismo Beach's suburb) has excellent food and beer on tap. Oktoberfest celebrated through Nov 3. Thurs-Sun.

All the above choices are a short drive away.

I was just there this past week and ate at Custom House. Delicious. Be sure to try the carrot cake, we went back twice for it!
