“Fire pit & Mai Tais!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2014

These are some of the best mai tais anywhere and they are only $5 at happy hour. The fire pit is a fun (and often interesting) place to hang out. The calamari is great and I love their cocktail sauce.

“Dining with a view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2014

The Wind and Sea Restaurant sits inside the entrance of the Harbor in Dana Point, California. The restaurant has inside and patio dining with large windows for indoor patrons to enjoy the scene of the water, boats, paddle boarders, and sunshine. The patio is lovely, with heating lamps and fresh air for cooler days and evenings. We had Calamari Steak and the Blackened Chicken Pasta, both delicious. We topped our dinner off with Mudd Pie and hot coffee. A lovely meal, lovely scenery and great company has made this a perfect day.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

The Wind & Sea offers a lot of dining experiences, but I like their Sunday Brunch the best. Fresh food, extensive buffet and the price: perfect!

“Sunset dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2014 via mobile

The views from this restaurant are very nice. The sun setting over the harbor was beautiful. The atmosphere in side was a bit loud but still enjoyable. The food was delicious. People next to us complained about their food. The waitress did everything she could to satisfy them. Even the cook came out to talk to them! Nice service. We had a great meal and nice scenery.

“Great Happy Hour and Excellent Sunday Brunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2014

Great happy hour fish dishes and drinks. Sunday brunch has an omelet bar, eggs benedict, and other items. The restaurant is on the corner of the harbor water ways so the view is the best ever. Service is great.
