The views cannot be best. Right on the water. Look out the windows and all you see is sea. No sand or beach. Watch the surfers and paddle boarders and sunset. The service is great and the food fabulous. The salmon was outstanding. Highly recommend.

The beach views are unbeatable but the interior could use an update. The food was amazing, highly recommend the diver scallops and prawn entree and crab cake appetizer. All the food was beautifully presented, true culinary art both in flavor and visually.

This is a restaurant perfectly situated at the beach. Sunset dinners are the best, with waves rolling in under the setting sun. It is also a good example of how to run a restaurant. Seating is quick, service is very good, a great menu, a...More

We just finished a magnificent dinner at the Marine Room. The setting was amazing as the sun set over the Pacific and the ocean continued to creep ever closer. The quality of the staff was impeccable. All four of us had the Caesar Salads for...More
