Local recommendation and well worth it. Seated with a great view of the pier and beach and sea. Beautiful fish brilliantly presented and cooked to perfection. Thanks hope to return next time in the USA.

Amazing view, amazing food. The entrance is similar to that of a hotel lobby, very elegant. You go upstairs and arrive at an amazing panoramic view of the beach.

We got there for sunset and ate by the most amazing view. Ask for the second floor to get that view. The pizza was so delicious, we had the artichoke/leek. Wow. Great wine too.

A friend brought me here for one of my first nights in town. If you come early you can get a seat by the window for sunset. The food was very good, especially the pizza! Will return when I have friends in town!

I visited recently for lunch, quite annoyed after it taking 30 minutes to find a parking spot. The hostess quickly seated us next to the bar...... because we needed it! Our server was attentive, fun, & knew the menu inside out. We enjoyed great cocktails...More

No, it doesn't. At night, it's not too difficult to find a spot if you are willing to all a little. Or go with the Ocean Express from LAX area or Uber.
