A nice cozy small restaurant overlooking the ocean. Great selection of oysters (there were 7 varieties when we were there) and many other tasty seafood dishes. Highly recommend lobster tacos. Service is casual, but food is very tasty.

roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the
famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles
weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa
Monica pier spins high above the water, while park
revelers scream with delight riding the roller
