Terribly pricey. Had half a crab sandwich for $15.00, no taste at all. The deal was the calamari steak strips as an appetizer, they were excellent. Nice view from enclosed porch.

Food wasn't that great considering it was on the pier. We were expecting a great seafood dinner but was disappointed. I didn't even eat much of my fish and they took some off the bill. The service wasn't that great either.

It is an old port which you can go for a nice walk, buy seafood for a very good price, enjoy the views and take many pictures. We had 12 oysters for 14 dollars!!!

This restaurant sits on the end of a fishing pier in Avila Beach. This restaurant has a market which supplies them with fresh fish. So that Petrale Sole you are eating is very fresh. The fish and chips are really good here because the fish...More
