We had such a lovely time here. Everything we order was delicious, even the kids items. The view was stunning and perfect for watching the sunset. The crab cakes and fried manchego cheese were definitely highlights, don't skip the appetizers!

The food quality for both lunch and dinner was consistently very good. Our service was excellent, even with a wedding being held in the main dining room. Views of the ocean were beautiful! The wine list was excellent, with reasonable prices! That made the difference...More
