“overrated food, but a beautiful view”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

eating breakfast on the beach is nice but the food is just eatable, overcooked omelet and undercooked sunny side up one day, and pancakes with poorly mixed fruits another day with prices very close to hotel were disappointing. Choices are limited as is the service, where you order yourself. Staff attending table was however good, attentive and refilling drinks eagerly. In summary, great view, attentive service but so-so food.

“Best breakfast view in Santa Barbara!”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Pick a sunny morning and then wander down to watch Santa Barbara's best beach wake up. The beach view is stunning and the surroundings relaxed as you sit on the terrace and enjoy your coffee. The food is adequate - it's really all about the setting.

“Fried Shrimp”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

This is a nice place at the harbor to enjoy a nice meal while you enjoy the sand and sun. I would recommend the fried shrimp.
