We only had breakfast there the 2 days we were staying at the hotel. They had a nice selection and everything was very good. Presentation was great. Staff was super friendly. Try to get a window table (beach side).

The Dream Inn is the # 1 hotel in Santa Cruz. The associated restaurant is not of the same quality by a long shot. The location is the only thing in Aquarius' favor. We did have a nice glass of wine and the chowder was OK. But both of our entrees were inedible. To their credit, they did not charge us for the entrees. We returned to our room and ate the snacks we had brought with us.

We were given a table on a busy sunday despite not booking. The waiter was lovely and very efficient. Food great and as per description. Good ambience and atmosphere. Great views over beach.

As we had a puppy with us, we sat on the small outdoor patio, which we had to ourselves. This restaurant is in a great location for the view from the inside and we enjoyed some bubbles and lunch. The kale salad was delicious and we all enjoyed our food. The only downside was the main courses coming out not long after we'd begun to eat our starters, but I think that was just a kitchen miscommunication. The staff we met were incredibly friendly and the restaurant is clean and airy. Definitely a must if you're visiting Santa Cruz.
