“Good quality food and service”
Reviewed January 29, 2014

We stayed across the street, but may look into staying the Best Western Cavalier next time in San Simeon. Wanted breakfast/lunch on the ocean before heading back home. Walked in and they were cleaning a window booth with a view. After waiting less than a minute they seated us there. It was just after 11:00 and they don't serve lunch until 11:30. Asked if lunch was available and they said no problem. I had Corned Beef and Eggs and my wife had French Dip. Portions were good size. My wife only ate half of her sandwich. The food was fresh and well prepared. Service was very good. We didn't have to seek out the waitress for anything. We have already recommended to friends.

“Good food, pleasant owner, disgruntled waitress”
Reviewed January 25, 2014

I think that says it all. We were delighted to find out that The Morgan serve breakfast and we did not have to go to the Cavalier for breakfast.

“Great View BAD service”
Reviewed January 15, 2014 via mobile

We recently went to this restaurant based on reviews and maybe it was a flick but the service was not good. We sat down and waited 10mins before getting our waters and another 10minutes for our served to greet us. Before we could give our food orders with our drink order, the waitress left....another 10minutes went by and she asked about food.and we were honestly about to leave...we should of as we kept looking at our watches. The restaurant was not even half full so I surprised at the service.

I saw another man try to get a hold of the host and he just walked by. The food was pretty good (not bad but nothing special) but I would never go back. There are other restaurants on this beach strip to choose from and the pub/grill across the street was packed. We should have gone there.

“CROSS THE ROAD”
Reviewed January 13, 2014 via mobile

Before you settle for this Restuarant wonder across the road there are better options . This Restuarant was only ok . More like a diner atmosphere . The food was only ok nothing special . The price is fair but does match the food and service .

“Loved The Food”
Reviewed January 12, 2014

This was a nice cosy restuarant (out of the cold night outside) which had a very appealing menu. The table service was excellent as was the standard of the meal. We highly recommend this restuarant if you are staying in the area.
