“Very nice Brunch on the Terrace with a View”
Reviewed 29 August 2014

We spent a very nice Sunday noon driving down from the Bay area, CA, to Half Moon Bay, CA.. It was a rather cloudy day; but all the the drive was a very nice and scenic one with the energizing smell of the Eucalyptus trees for part. of the lovely drive. Usually, on a sunny Sunday, such a drive is full of traffic, specially as part of the road is a one track way.
Anyway, the trip is always worth it, as this is a nice place to spend a day, or more specially if you are a surfer, you will enjoy the famous, large waves of Half Moon Bay.
We chose the Miramar Restaurant right on the Bay, facing the Pacific Ocean. We sat outside, on the terrace. It was a very cool day, but they had a transparent fence all around, which keeps the pleasure of the view of being on the beach, and shielded us from the strong wind,.. They also, had heaters and some seats were around fire places. Very cozy and pleasant, and certainly added to the charm of the place.
They have a variety of food selection. We were interested in the brunch menu, which had quite an attractive, delicious choice. The service was excellent in spite of the fact that the place was crowded. It is always better to reserve a place on a Sunday, specially if you are a big group.
Later, we went for a stroll on the sandy beach, and had a lovely time. A day well spent!

“Enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Miramar Beach Restaurant.”
Reviewed 23 August 2014

It's a great place to have a glass of wine and some appetizer. We enjoyed the view as the whole restaurant overlooks the beach. They also have a guest pianist which makes your dinning experience really cozy and romantic. Food is average but the wine list is reasonable.
I would go back again.

“Nice Views at Mirimar Beach and Restaurant - Traffic Congestion”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

At Miramar Beach there is a beach front restaurant here called Miramar Beach Restaurant.

The restaurant has nice views of the beach. As such, we like to go walking before or after at the beach. It is a sandy beach.

Traffic in this area can be a bit congested. As such, when not dining at the restaurant, we tend to choose another beach in the Half Moon Bay are to go to.

As such, I give it an average rating as a beach to go to.

If however doing a dual combination of dining at the restaurant and walking at the beach, I would rate it a 4 star for very good experience.

“Delicious food and classic wooden bar”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

A local in Half Moon Bay recommended this restaurant as we would probably not have picked it ourselves. It's literally across a narrow beachfront road at the end of a neighborhood of beach condos. The wall facing the ocean are full glass windows that offer prime seating. We started out at the wood-topped bar where we thought we were back in NYC -- nice atmosphere.

My husband and I both had perfectly prepared steaks after splitting an excellent salad. Although the restaurant was full, service was attentive and friendly. We were planning to return to try some of the other menu items but ran out of time. I don't say this about many restaurants, but we would definitely book this restaurant again if we got back to HMB.

“Fresh food, good service”
Reviewed 15 August 2014

Liked the outdoor seating. The food was fresh and the service was good. We had children with us and it was relaxed and the outdoor seating was good for children.
