We stopped in for drinks with hopes of sitting outside with a view of the ocean. No such luck. You can only sit outside if you're ordering food. Sat at the bar, it was sweltering inside! Beer was even warm. Everything was very sticky. Service...More

The only thing going for this restaurant is its location. This is the westernmost restaurant on the pier and so it is always busy. I suppose the decor is nice as well. Also, who doesn't love Mexican food? I told my husband when we arrived...More

Located at the very end of the picturesque Santa Monica Pier, Mariasol serves mouthwatering Mexican fare reminiscent of that found in the Mexican beach towns of Cabo San Lucas and Puerto Vallarta. Visitors enjoy the vivacious colors of the patios and the decor of a true Baja Cantina. Mariasol's use of distinctive sauces, flavorful peppers and fresh fish make this cuisine a favorite among food lovers. Lunch and dinner are served daily.
