This place is an institution in my book. I remember going here as a child and young adult. This was our families' favorite place to dine. Now I take everyone here when I do my Central Coast Tour for friends. Tables have views to die for - through the windows and through the dining table as well! Food and drinks... More

This restaurant sits on the end of a fishing pier in Avila Beach. This restaurant has a market which supplies them with fresh fish. So that Petrale Sole you are eating is very fresh. The fish and chips are really good here because the fish is fresh vs many in the area using frozen fish. The clams chowder is also... More

We sat at a sea-through, glass table next to the big windows looking out onto the beautiful bay. Stunning! We had never been before, and I kept the restaurant info a surprise for my friend's BDay. We were thrilled at the views and novelty of looking through the table to the water below. Thankfully I made a reservation well in... More

We had the fresh catch of the day (sole) lightly breaded. A gratin potatoes All was delicious. Tables with a glass top and view down into the water was novel. Staff was very nice.

3 minutes from Avila at the end of the pier is a quiet, delicious seafood restaurant with views galore! Laura, our waitperson, was friendly and engaging. Great service! The hostess was very kind to show us our seating options given it was our first visit. Highly recommend the room surrounded by glass. 360 degree views of the ocean!

Any visit to Avila Beach is not complete without a dinner at the Olde Port Inn situated at the end of the pier just north of town. It's not a fancy place but the fish is fresh and the waitstaff very pleasant. Add to that the view over the water and you have a relaxed but satisfying dining experience. Check... More

Loved the walk to the restaurant! The view of the water is second to none. Service was great! Enjoyed the calamari as an appetizer. The salmon was fresh & tasty. Great place for couples & families. Highly recommend.

My wife and I, along with two other couples, enjoyed a nice Valentine's Day drinks and dinner at this unique restaurant. It is positioned at the very end of the Harford pier in Avila beach. You can drive out and park on the pier or, because there are few spaces, you can park on the beach and walk out. The... More
