Very tasty early bird specials. We experienced a friendly staff. Ruthie had the salmon and I the calimari. Lots of capers.

“Good early bird menu”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

My husband and I both enjoyed our meals here. We were in the area one night, and based on the reviews for this restaurant, we tried it. We had to eat early, because we had an evening tour booked for Hearst Castle. That turned out to be a good thing for us, as they had early bird specials. Our waitress was very friendly, our food arrived promptly, and we were happy with our experience.

“Diamond in the Rough”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

This restaurant was a very pleasant surprise. Nice ambiance, nice staff, great food! After a day of visiting Hearst Castle we were tired and did not want to drive far for dinner. Some one said this was the best place around and they were right!

“Average food in an average location”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

Arriving in San Simeon late in the afternoon and you need food, then there is little choice if you want something good. Service is brisk and polite and the food unpretensious.
