Paradise cove is great for those who would like to experience a meal eaten outdoors. That appears to be the main attraction, to be able to eat a meal with your shoes off while your toes are stuck in the sand and while you view the ocean. Have to admit, that's different for a restaurant to offer. Wait times can be long, especially on a weekend, and the parking lot can fill up which means you will have to park on the street and walk back. That walk back can be a half mile to a mile walking in single file with steady traffic. Oh, and the temperature may be 80 degrees or more. So, dress comfortable and wear comfortable walking shoes. Your waiting time will be less if you eat inside instead of outside. Waiters are friendly and knowledgeable of the dishes. Somewhat pricey, but you're paying for the ambience. We ordered the beef ribs and fish ( I think halibut) and the servings are generous and the wait time between order and serving was not long. Food was good but I would not rate the food as worth bragging about. All in all however, Paradise Cove is worth the visit because you have to go and see it at least once. I would go back again but to me you should take your own cooler, food, beach stuff, beach clothing, and rent space to hang out and enjoy the beautiful weather and the beach.
