“Eclectic and inviting”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

Our server was so inviting and prompt. The food was eclectic and delicious. Wish the seating was a little more comfortable but overall it was a great dinner.

“Healthy meal after walking on the beach”
Reviewed December 11, 2013

After a short hike on the beach, we stopped at this small but wonderful restaurant on Main Street. Chez Shea is popular with tourists and locals alike. The menu leans toward the "healthy" side, with dishes ranging from Mexican to Middle Eastern - I had the chicken enchiladas which were excellent. Atmosphere is small town café, but the variety and quality of the dishes will impress you.

This little touched away eatery is excellent. I love the exotic ethnic cuisine offered. Usually, I go for
The curry no matter where I am, but last night I opted for something milder, the chicken with mashed potatoes and, wait I'm drooling just remembering, with mushroom gravy. Yum yum yum! The pumpkin curry soup, there I DID have curry! Was a mild curry and light, a great start to the meal. This is a place I'll return to when I'm on the coast.

“Eclectic Cuisine in Half Moon Bay”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

Great little find of a restaurant that is more like a cafe with a wide variety of food from Mexican to Middle Eastern. Top pick for a lunch spot in the downtown main street of Half Moon Bay

Location: Main Street of historic Half Moon Bay.

Food: Excellent. Choice of everything from middle eastern, to american, to mexican. Fish tacos were great.

Atmosphere: Unfortunately it doesn't match the food quality, and is a bit small with a tiny backyard patio.

Service: Average. You order yourself at the counter,and not much table service. A bit disappointing.

Value: Reasonable for the quality.

Occasions: Lunch before an outing in Half Moon Bay

In summary nice little find of a restaurant if you want some worldly selections and you happen to be spending the day in Half Moon Bay.
