First time to drive around this area after visiting Hearst Castle! Very beautiful view of the beach from this restaurant coupled with such a perfect ambiance and excellent selection of Sunday seafood buffet lunch! The place to go to complete your journey!

“Mud Pie”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

Had a birthday certificate for a free entree up to $25 value, so I had to take advantage of it. Had the grilled mahi-mahi but should have requested that no sauce be put on it. The tortillas and the mild, medium, and hot salsas that come before the main dish are great. It satisfied all 3 of our taste buds. My friends ordered the rib-eye steak (looked fantastic) and fish and chips. How did I get the birthday certificate you ask?? Go to the website and complete the form with your e-mail address and IF you happen to be down on the central coast in your birthday month or you make a special trip down there like I did, you can enjoy the beautiful ocean view, cocktails, and the food!! We 3 shared the mud pie because the portion is so large that I don't think one person can finish it. Enjoy!

“Expensive But Worth It.”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

Great location and atmosphere being right on the ocean. Service both times we ate there within a week was superb, and we had different waiters each time.
Certainly best for a special occasion, as this is pricey!! However, certainly get you monies worth with such tasty and well presented entrees. Appetizers from extensive menu are excellent too! No one in our party of 4 (each time) had any leftovers. If you have some extra dough to splurge, this is the place for you.

“What a view!”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

Another place where the view surpassed the food. We sat in the bar area for happy hour and ordered a couple cocktails and appetizers. The food was pretty good. Nothing outstanding but great view/atmosphere.

“Fabulous Cocktails”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

We stayed at the Shore Cliff hotel next door and as my husband wasn't feeling too well we hoped this restaurant would be ok. It was perfect. He perked up with a nice cocktail and the food was very good. It was dark when we got in there but I should think the view through the Ventana is wonderful. Nothing to dislike. Would go again.
