Stopped in for a glass of wine after a day of sightseeing. Beautiful setting, friendly staff. Very popular spot.

We stopped off here whilst driving down the pacific coast. Although busy we had a drink whilst waiting for our table. Food was lovely and servers really friendly.

We had the cheese plate along with some wine while setting facing the coastline. Very good service and the selection of cheeses to go with the wine was fantastic! The views are worth the visit alone. Words cannot tell the beauty of this area, you have to see it for yourself.

The seafood chowder was outstanding, but otherwise the food overall was serviceable but not great, and somewhat overpriced. The view is terrific, and this is a nice place to stop while driving the Big Sur coast.
