Came for lunch after Cliff walk. Youre Paying for the view- food was decent. Did not like the ceviche (no flavor/bland) which they happily took back. Nice servers. Would return

The view from the right spot in this restaurant is absolutely amazing. We had a private room that overlooked the water - absolutely incredible. The food was good - nothing exceptional. The salads never even came & the entrees were quite small portions. Spiced pear...More
