It was literally a pot of water with small amount of can vegetablesand precooked pieces of chicken. Wouldnt surprise me it was donein the microwave. A ramen soup would have been better. The price for two soups, no drinks $13.50. The complementary plaintains were stale.

Overpriced, small portions, bad food. Ordered the shrimp ceviche (which was $13 when usually it's $6-$8) and it was 5 whole shrimp sitting in a sweet tomato sauce with sliced onions.

My husband and I ate lunch here during our vacation. It was nice. There was a good variety and the staff were very nice. It is in a good location also. We will definitely go back.

We had a lovely meal here on evening. The food was good and the service too. Would have been better if the TV was off, but others were enjoying a game.

We stumbled upon this place one morning when I didn't feel like making breakfast. What a great find. Small and simple with a family-friendly atmosphere, this was a perfect place for our family. The bread and juices were delicious, the coffee was strong and hot and the waiter was very friendly. We'd definitely return. Gratuity was not included in our... More

Not just the octopus the burgers the fish the veggies the steak everything wonderful. Probably the only restaurant in salinas where you could literally at off the floor. I went to the ladies room and peeked in the kitchen wow so clean. Deserts a bit pricey but really really decadent.

The prices are for the view of the ocean and the outstanding service. The food each of us ate was awful. Friends tell me that the salads are far better than any of the cooked food.
