“Nice view, good food”
Reviewed April 8, 2014

Fresh fajitas served with good humor and attentiveness.

Enjoyed the special mixed seafood fajitas with BIG calamari strips.

Great for sunset view over the bay.

Check out the desserts, too.

“View is nice, food was average”
Reviewed November 20, 2013

The best thing about this place is its location on the waterfront. The restaurant has a great view of sailboats, pelicans and the amazing sunset. I'd recommend an early evening dinner so not to miss the sun going down. The food was good but not great. There really was not much flavor to the plate I ordered so could just be my opinion. Our server was excellent though in attending to our table. Overall, a good spot for a scenic dinner.
