My wife and I took the scenic route from Monterey to San Francisco, and wanted to stop for lunch in Half Moon Bay. Cafe Capistrano fit the bill! Great food, fresh ingredients, and very authentic. Highly recommend this place.

Was expecting more. Had the red snapper fish tacos that I'm pretty sure wasn't snapper. Appetizers were good.
