We stopped to have lunch on a sunny afternoon on the way to. Santa Barbara. We sat under umbrellas in the sun, with our bare feet in the sand and really enjoyed our drinks, just soaking up the atmosphere. Service was very friendly and drinks came quickly. We choose tacos and fish & chips. Good choices. A popular choice at the tables around us were the seafood specials. It was very busy even though we were later in the afternoon. Use a GPS if you are new to the area and you will find this lovely California stop.

This is typical seashore food - wide arrange of seafood, plus burgers, fries, other items. The emphasis is on quantity, not quality. Nothing I had here was particularly flavorful. And everything was pricey. My dinner was disappointing, and I wouldn't go back.

However, the setting is beautiful. The restaurant is literally on the beach, and it has a lot of outdoor seating at pleasant tables and chairs, literally on and in the sand. And it's a nice beach. Although I wouldn't go back for dinner, if I were going to the beach for a few hours, this spot would be great. Grab a spot on the beach, spread out, and literally 50 feet away is this restaurant with great beach drinks, shrimp cocktail, calamari, whatever you'd like to snack on.

So, you and your honey looking for a few nice hours in the sun? Go here. Then go grab a shower and go someplace else for dinner.

We sat outside and were surprised to see that you are eating on the beach! We kicked off our shoes and enjoyed our breakfast barefoot. The macadamia nut coconut pancakes were good and so was the cinnamon French toast. Besides the food, the best part of the restaurant is sitting outside by the water. I wouldn't say the restaurant itself is beautiful, but it's in a beautiful location. And don't forget to validate your parking so you pay $6 instead of $30!

My wife and I went to this restaurant during a trip on a Saturday. We were leary about the parking charge, but it was well worth it. The restaurant has a great atmosphere. The waitress was helpful on menu choices. The amount of food provided was more than enough. We shared a bowl of clam chowder which was huge and very good. We also shared one of the fish sandwiches which was also very good. We ate inside of the restaurant instead of on the beach. The window seat was fun with the ocean and people views. All meals we saw going past us were very substantial. If in the area, we will be back.

A few friends recommended this restaurant, so we thought we'd try it whilst on holiday.

We grabbed a drink at the bar first until our vibrating lobster told us that our table was ready.

Our table was outside, which is great because you have your feet in the sand.

Our waiter was very good and friendly. At first we ordered the calamari and prawn cocktail to start and then the Parmesan encrusted halibut and the fish taco for main. Thanks to the waiter he actually advised us that we'd ordered too much food, so we forwent the calamari. Firstly it's a rarity that people will say this and normally they just let you buy the food.

The food was excellent and there was definitely no room for the calamari!

We had virgin pineapple cocktails, which came in a pineapple, which were delicious.

I'd definitely recommend this one and would be back!
