Had Shrimp Louie and Shrimp Tostada, booth good. From the restaurant we can see whales breaching and spouting. Wait staff are friendly and attentive, and other customer are engaging. Delightful evening.

We stopped for lunch as we drove down the coast...this is upstairs with a great view of the ocean. Very nice menu and it has a full bar. It is a small restaurant but the food was great and the service was attentive.
