We ate here for both breakfast and dinner while staying at the Westin. The restaurant is very popular for dinner so we came early for a late lunch/early dinner before 5pm. Everything was delicious!

We had a wonderful lunch at Lona. Our server was very attentive as the food was fresh. All around great place. The menu was a little limited for kids but the views of the beach made up for all of it!!

Food and service at Lona's was top notch! We went for a late lunch/early dinner after a long day at the beach. As we went around 4pm, the wait was less than 15 minutes. We noticed that any place along the main drag here gets...busy during the 5pm eating rush! The traditional guac, lobster quesadilla, fish tacos, and carne asada tacos were amazing. Tacos were packed! Quesadilla was loaded with lobster! Family said the quac was top notch too! They could tell it was made fresh! (I'm not a fan of quac, so I'm forwarding their thoughts!) The chips and salsa were fresh as well. Definitely at the top of our list of dinner options. Exceptional place to eat!More

Awesome breakfast- the eggs benedict with crab and the Baja burrito were some of our favorites. For lunch, we had the mar & Tierra burrito, carne asada tacos, and crab enchiladas. We enjoyed them all. Great bar atmosphere for later in the evening!

The view at this restaurant makes it all worth it, however the food is just average. I visited with friends, We all had different things and agreed that it was good but nothing to write home about. With 4 cocktails and 5 people our bill...was almost $300. They also charge 18% service fee which I found out is the tip out for bussers, bartenders etc. This is not YOUR server's gratuity. NOT RIGHT!More

Unsure of designated handicapped parking, however, the hotel that houses the restaurant has valet parking at a reasonable rate.

They don't have anything listed on their site. You may want to contact the restaurant to see if they have any happy hour specials.
