Great small restaurant next door to the Shore Hotel. Lovely food with terrific (and strong) margaritas. Would recommend.

Very nice spot for a casual meal. The food was tasty and I highly recommend the grilled shrimp topped salad. Ask for a side of avocado. The fish tacos were really small so order an appetizer to start. The staff was outstanding and the restaurant very clean.

Absolute beach front, restaurant and bar seating, you can even watch the chefs preparing delicious meals.

Try the grilled fish Taco with a margarita. There's also a full menu and drinks list

We had some fish tacos, margaritas, pollo and and guac and chips here. I really like the location where you can people watch on Ocean Avenue facing toward the Pacific -- though it is down the cliff so you don't see the waves. The food is very good too, though I would not say exceptional. The restaurant has charming decorative touches and seems very trendy and upscale. It is located right next to the Shore, which is a great hotel. Lunch was about $30 per person with appetizer and drinks. Service was pretty good, but not perfect. The waitress could have been friendlier; the hostess was nice.

We were staying at the Hotel California on Ocean and just walked to see what would be fun.
We dropped in and the Mexican food was amazing. Grilled corn on the cob, best carnitas i have ever had. Had a small gift sample while we were having dinner at the kitchen bar and went back the next night for the full meal. We had reservations at the Lobster at the pier but after eating here, we had to go back for New Years Eve. Guac with two salsas, an excellent Malbec, great service and obviously happy staff. What a pleasure it is to go to a place like this. Wow.
