“Incredible Dining Experience”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

We were pursuaded by "Danny Boy" to have a dinner at sunset on the beach, prepared exclusively for us. Upon arrival, we were amazed at a raked sand, candlelit walkway leading towards our beautifully prepared dining table. The ceviche and seafood salad was the freshest we have ever had. The portions of the main course were very large and designed on the plate like a work of art. After dinner, we were served dessert followed by drinks as we sat by a raging romantic bonfire. We plan to return again mostly because of the friendship and kindness of the people and special expirience that was created for us. :)

“Big disappointment”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

Nice view, but not amazing. However, we live in a beach town in San Diego. The food was ok. When my son asked for BBQ sauce on the Hawaiian pizza, they said no, so we had to ask for it on the side. We knew they had it because it was on another menu item. The pizza arrived without the BBQ sauce on the side so we had to ask for it again. They weren’t very friendly and were actually a bit rude. The pizza had too much cheese, was doughy and too starchy. I ordered the seafood salad with fruit because it sounded good by the description. However, when it arrived, it didn't really match what I had in mind. There were pieces of dry textured imitation crab in it, and maybe 1 grape and a small piece of the other 3 fruits mentioned, although I couldn't find it. I was really turned off by the leathery taste of the imitation crab so I sent it back and decided not to order anything else, although I had a couple of slices of my son's pizza. I wouldn’t go back or suggest it. They have a nice view of the ocean, but I’d rather eat somewhere else without it and have better food and a more pleasant experience. It was the worst restaurant we ate at during our 6 days in Santa Teresa.

“Best Margarita”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

Best margarita we had in Mal Pais. Delicious pizza as well. They will rent you chairs to sit on the beach with an umbrella and bring you drinks as well on the beach. Great location.

“Location the best!”
Reviewed 27 March 2014

Great pizza and drinks with the best view right off the beach. Good parking and facilities including a shower. Happy hour with sunsets. Dinner also but it was just average - should have done pizza again.
