So, yes, its expensive, yes, it's a bit on the loud side... but oh that view and the food and service are wonderful. This is a perfect spot to have a nice lunch, then walk to the beach and people watch.

Good cooking but the price is not linked to the level of quality.... It seemed to be a restaurant where you can tchat without shouting but it’s not....awfully noisy.... Good service... Bad mark just for the noise( and coldness because of the air conditioning....)

Did I mention the views?? Yes drinks are pricey, but do yourself a favor and go during happy hour, during the week...way less crowded, and better prices....and the views are still there!

Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a
balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a
thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers,
roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the
famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles
weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa
Monica pier spins high above the water, while park
revelers scream with delight riding the roller

It's a relaxed upscale restaurant so smart casual is good. No jackets required. And it's located in California not Spain.

I think the cocktails were around $15.00 each. You can go on the Huntley website and pull up all the menus...
