“love the fried banana”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2014

they had great smoothies and fried bananas! I think I ordered tacos which was good overall. My friend had a burrito which tasted great too.

I will definitely go back. because their location is superb and the food selection was very beach-friendly.

“Always make a point of walking the promenade”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2014

Of course there are some "interesting" characters, but where else can you see amazing surfers of all kinds - especially impressed by the kit surfers who sail for hours on the waves. I actually saw a dolphin racing a wave alongside a surfer once. It's a nice long walk, and the pier is impressive. Breathe in the sea air!

“Beautiful day in Ventura”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2014

Its so pretty along the promenade and take a walk out on the pier and enjoy the view of ocean, hills and the Ventura coast line. Have a drink or eat at Eric's on the Pier or Aloha Restaurant along the Promenade.

“Great Weather and a good beach town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2014

They have a well laid out path that is cemented and taken care of. They are a ton of surfers and it is just a great sight to see.

“Nice place to take a walk”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

If I had visitors from out of town, this would definitely be one of my stops. There's a pier you can walk out on that usually has a few fishermen. The promenade is a nice walk. There is play equipment for the kids on the beach near the pier, a couple of restaurants (Aloha, Erik Erikson's and a taco shack), a beach area (but the water is cold), and lots of surfers and people to watch. It would be a romantic place to walk with your special person, especially when the sun is going down. Along the beach in Ventura you have this and the Harbor as good options for excursions. Free parking is a little easier at the Harbor, they have shopping, and the food options a little more varied.
