The Ventana Grill is adjacent to the Best Western Shore Cliff Resort although I don't think it is owned by the Hotel. You can walk from the hotel easily to the restaurant. It is one of the more popular restaurants in the Pismo Beach area. The food is well prepared and features several fish entrees that show creativity by the Chef. The wait staff is very attentive. Reservation are accepted but only for seating at 6:00 and 8;00 PM, unless it is adjusted seasonally.They will only seat you when a majority of your group is in the restaurant. I would say all tables in the main dining room have great views of the ocean. While we were dining, we saw a lot of whale activity, water spouts, but too far out to see the actual whales themselves.

We visited for the second time in a few weeks and have been very happy with both visits. There is a wide variety of South American food and everything we have tried has been excellent. A very nice wine list and full bar. The view can't be beat and provides some whale watching opportunities. Service by Eddie on our first visit and Laura on the second was great.

We visited after seeing the reviews on here. We couldn't have been more happy. If was the best meal we'd had on our honeymoon. We were lucky enough to have a corner booth with an incredible view. Our server was very attentive and provided some great advice. The food was delicious and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend this excellent Mexican!!

Atmosphere was nice, view was great. Food was average. I got tequila lime chicken. Chicken breast w/bbq sauce. Hubby got sea bass. Just ok. Best part of dinner was dessert. Did not ask to refill drinks till we were done eating. Will not go back.
