The only positive thing I can say is that they allow dogs outside. Waitress was new, fries were (cold, limp & soggy), we were one of 3 tables with the other finishing up and it took a 1/2 hour for our fried & soggy food. I would not go back if they paid me. I wanted fish n chips, but... More

The food was really good! I had a Lamb & Pita and my husband had a cheese burger. Our lady server was so friendly and great at her job. The seaside patio is funky, with it being in between the place next doors, patio and back door. But we didn't really mind. Still had a fun view. And didn't have... More

It was a beautiful day in Capitola. After laying on the beach, we walked along Esplanade checking out all of our restaurant options. We thought this place had a big outdoor eating area but found out they had 5-6 tiny tables that fit two. People were walking by, brushing up against our table, dogs were barking at each other, too...

The food and prices were pretty good for a place right on the water. About $10 a person, food was hot, the kebab was juicy, the veggies hot, and the rice perfect. Only thing I really didn't like were the chairs that needed to be replaced 10 years ago. Other than that, i think it's a good place to stop... More

This place looks a bit down at heel (speaking of the exterior of the building and the seating area) and it's a shame as it's right on the beach and the food seems ok. My tuna melt was tasty - I chose it because it came with lettuce rather than fries. It tasted good although the bread was oily, so... More

Ok, our waitress was a bit flaky, but friendly and the food was quite good. Everything was fresh and reasonably priced, especially given the location right on the beach. Gyros and hummus were most popular.

We ate here twice during our visit to Capitola and both times the food and service were outstanding. We ordered the falafel salads, falafel wraps and the lamb skewers and all of it was excellent. Their homemade tahini was soooo good as well. We ate outside and it was very nice. Give this place a try for sure if you... More

My sister and I ordered the falafel wraps and they were pretty good. Service was excellent since there was hardly anyone there but we ate after the lunch hour. The seating on the outside walkway gave us a view of the beach. Don't be confused that the large deck is theirs, its the restaurant's next door.

A little bit into our visit, we wanted to get something to eat and I tell you, the staff were wonderful. We ordered our food not realizing that they were in the midst of closing, we were their last customer and they sat us after they closed, which we thought was so thoughtful of them. I was wondering why nobody... More
