It is Peruvian restaurant in unique location. You also can order fresh catch fish that was very tasty. It is in the beginning of small town Montara with fantastic views both on ocean and local Montara Mountain park.

Even if the mist obscure the sunset (as it did for our early evening November dinner), we still enjoyed the view of sand and waves below and the beautiful decor within the restaurant. Families can enjoy this restaurant as well as adults--they served macaroni and cheese, almost immediately to the family dining near us with a four-year old (even though we were seated first--but I didn't mind). Their menu is extensive and offers many dishes unique to the Peruvian cuisine. Each bit was delicious!

We went to a business dinner at La Costanera, which is north of Half Moon Bay, and right on the Pacific Ocean. The menu was Peruvian, but the entree and appetizers were amazing! And the view was out of this world! The group thoroughly enjoyed the experience!

While a little out of the way from San Jose this is a great place to go for something different. We personally like to order a bunch of small plates and split them so that we get to try a little of each.

We've always received great service and the views are hard to beat. The main dining area has a great feel to it and not too loud yet not stuffy either. If you're looking for a little more lively (and louder) atmosphere you can eat down in the bar as well.

Highly recommend. Parking can be difficult on some nights as the surfers tend to use the area as well.

The view when you walk in is gasp-worthy. Absolutely incredible. Our party of four ate appetizers only so we could taste more flavors. I highly recommend this, as the food is amazing. The Mac n cheese is, to quote When Harry Met Sally, "I'll have what she's having" incredible. The meat empanadas were super flavorful. Pulled pork sandwich was tasty tasty tasty. My only criticism is that when the dinner crowd picked up, the quality of the service noticeably dropped off. But no worries... Bask in the incredible views and the upscale decor.
