My brother and I are in the area on family business, and treated ourselves to breakfast at Spashes. I think the Sunday brunch gets crowded, but breakfast at 8:30 was perfect. It wasn't crowded, and we sat outside, in the shade, watching the rather large...More

We sat in the bar (no reservations on a Friday night it was all we could do) and arrived just in time to see the sun set. Gorgeous view on the beach. Very expensive food but quite good. We split a $22 hamburger and fries,...More

The restaurant has a great ocean views. We had paella as chef's special signature dish. It looked great and the taste was fine. We just thought we had a much better paella in Spain.

I agree. Great food and wine choices. Attentive staff. And the view!!! You have to valet but after a great meal who cares. Will be back! Oh, and attire is casual. Great for coming off the beach!

Wasn’t bad but wasn’t great. Love the view and being right next to the ocean. My husband’s meal sat for a while and wasn’t hot and sauce had a skim coat on it. White wine was warm and not chilled. Service was fine, nothing great....More
