This is one of our favorites for family reunion and celebrations, so we were delighted to enjoy this local treasure for a special birthday. This is definitely the place if you want a fabulous, relaxing local dining experience without being hurried or rushed (without having to go to LA!). Two of us enjoyed the Branzino, which was prepared to perfection.... More

We were staying at the resort and excited to have booked dinner. Sadly, it was very average and the service was extremely average - we felt like the hype of the chef and the food was way overdone based on what we had and frankly won't go back and/or tell you to rush there. The restaurant called Bashi in the... More

Celebrated my besties 50th here. Service was amazing, food delicious, and the cake (special order) from the bakery was beyond expectations. We told anybody who would listen about how fabulous our large party was handled here. Why go anyplace else?

Let's start with the view. A ten plus overlooking the Pacific and Catalina Island. Service is fantastic and the food is delicious. Had fish that was fresh as can be and the presentation was beautiful. I would come back here in a second!

My wife and I had our favorite breakfast at Mar'sel while we were at Terranea on our Honeymoon! The staff was excellent - the coffee incredible and breakfast even better!

The view is just stunning! The restaurant was quiet so it felt very private. We had a table on the terrace facing the ocean and it was amazing. I had the wagyu steak and egg which was terrific. A must do if you are looking for a high end ocean view breakfast.

We were staying at the hotel and wanted to have at ;east one meal in this restaurant. So we booked dinner - actually used "Open Table" where we found more options for time. We had a really nice meal outside because the heat lamps kept us warm even though it was chilly. We didn't want the full tasting but wanted... More
