Incredible combination of elegance, comfort and scenic view. Waves crash right at the steps of the restaurant. And if you are a little chilli, there are many fireplaces to warm you up. Great menu that changes every season. Splashes also has a great bar with full restaurant menu or just appetizers from the bar. When the sun goes down, it peaks though windows and reflects in a beautiful glass of wine. Wines come from different parts of the world, and of course from California valleys.Very romantic. Service is excellent. I did not mind to spent little more for a piece of paradise.

The food at Splashes is great, that's first and foremost, and the waitstaff was helpful, responsive, and quick. We ate at Splashes on a couple of occasions during our stay at the Surf and Sand, and ordered room service from there as well.

Splashes was at its best when we had dinner in the restaurant. Breakfast was good but overpriced - the cuisine wasn't anything really exceptional, though I did like the fresh-from-the-maker Naked juice blends on the menu, though spending that kind of money on a glass of juice is just a little extreme.

Anyway, dinner was just what I'd hoped it would be. Romantic, intimate, great food, a solid wine list, and knock-your-socks-off deserts.

We booked our company holiday party at Splashes in a private dining room and it far exceeded our expectations. From the moment we arrived, our entire party's every need was catered to ... from our own private bathroom to our private balcony overlooking the ocean to our intimate and elegant table set for 10, we felt spoiled and relaxed. This coupled with Splashes staff quickly and efficiently taking every order from the appetizers to our drinks so we could settle in for an amazing evening filled with the very best of dishes, each unique and delicious, made the way for our very best holiday party ever.... thank you, Surf and Sand ... thank you, Splashes!!! We've already booked it again for next year!!

We stayed at the Surf and Sand and ate in the restarant, and from its room servive menu, several times. Everyting was expertly cooked, well presented and tasty. Sometimes it was a little too rich.

The wine list is extensive, has a good range of prices and many bottles we enjoyed.

There are table inside and outside, all are well placed and have good views of the sand and surf

We chose this restaurant at the recommendation of a family member and we weren't disappointed!

Wonderful view of the Pacific...we could see & hear the waves slapping the shore! The Ribeye was like nothing my husband had ever ordered...juicy tender & full of flavor + Fingerling potatoes & creamed Spinach that was wonderful!

I chose the Beef Tenderloin, prepared to my delight. The Potato Croissant was not to my liking so the server immediately brought me a substitue to go with the delicious grilled veggies.

Pricey, but the servers made us feel special and the food was above aberave. Plan to spend $50-60 per person, minimum...it is worth it!
