The server seemed a little over whelmed with our group of 9.coffee service was slow, the food was cold. It was quite tasty although. The beach view was great, over all I would give it another try some time.

Have serious medical Gluten Free needs. Manager who took our order was condescending and a REAL jerk. I would not recommend to anyone. They could care less about your medical conditions. I'd love to see the Manager try Gluten Free for a week. It's not fun. Hard to believe they stay in business being so rude. Only saving grace for... More

One of our guests wanted a special preparation (leaving off some sauce) but manager was arrogant and said that was only way chef would prefer, despite fact waiter said it could be done. Food was pretty good. Wouldn't go back!

Our waiter was really great and tried to accommodate the allergies in our group. However, the manager had an attitude and did not want to accommodate. We found this frustrating as we called in advance to make sure they would work with us. The view was spectacular, but the manager left us with a bad impression.

Beautiful spot right on the beach. It's hidden behind a Holiday Inn Hotel, and you have to use their valet parking, but very easy. The restaurant is under a tarp sort of roof and literally on the beautiful beach. Sunset was gorgeous the night we were there. Service is impeccable. Celebrating a milestone birthday with family and the wait staff... More

The restaurant is right on the beach and we ate gray food and got to watch whales spouting! The breakfast burrito is spicy and satisfying. The server suggested we split it and it was good advice it's more than enough for 2. The crepes were also fantastic but a little sweet if that is all you are having. It is... More

It is difficult to know how to rate a restaurant with good to very good food, a front row sunset location and dreadful service. We have eaten here several times and have enjoyed most of the food, but the service is seriously TERRIBLE! The servers are disinterested, crude and poorly trained. I would not even call them servers ...they are... More

We had dinner at sunset overlooking the beach. It was a beautiful setting. We both had the mixed seafood grill, mahi mahi, prawns, and scallops over risotto. It was delicious. The bread was also delicious. Expensive but very nice for a special meal.
