If you are looking for a true California experience you could do worse than dinner at the Moonraker. Ask for a table overlooking the ocean. You will be treated to wonderful views. The food is average and pricey. You expect to pay higher prices in...More

I've been to this restaurant several times now and they always have nice fresh dishes, great cocktails, nice wines by the glass, and a great view of the ocean

My brussels sprout appetizer was delicious (perfectly charred). Unfortunately, the scallops, while perfect,...More

What a gem. We have ocean view dining. Lucky for us we also had the same waiter each evening. We tried something different each evening. I was rather delighted that everything came in perfect, from soup, to salad, to breads and of course the main...More

Great Sunday brunch. They had all you could eat crab, oyster, mussels, shrimp and smoked salmon plus all the usuals. Great breakfast looking out over the ocean.

The Moonraker has been around for many years, but has changed hands a few times. The current owners and staff have put a great deal of effort into raising the standard of the food and the service. This is a great place to go for...More
