We was there for dinner, right on the side of the ocean, music is low and you can enjoy the sound of the waves, service is good, portions are good, price is correct. Was a good dinner.

What started as sunset cocktails turned into a very pleasant dinner. We both have the chicken casado and it was great, as the chicken breast was freshly grilled. Good marguerita and banana smoothie. Excellent sunset view !

Lovely food, very pleasant spot. Only got 3 scallops when menu said 5, they corrected it but implied it depended on the size of the scallop (they were not huge). But tasty!

Absolutely. Recent owner change and that has definitely changed. I was just there in March, had margaritas, sangria and beer myself over the course of a few visits.

Formerly a private residence, The Beach House has been transformed into a quaint restaurant and bar, renown for its fresh seafood and equally excellent American fare. Located directly on Playa Potrero, The Beach House offers awesome daytime and nighttime views of the Pacific Ocean, interrupted only by some of the most spectacular sunsets the area has to offer.
