Excellent breakfast and lunch options with excellent sea view. Good for fine dining only. Felt a little on the expensive side.

I will preface this by saying we went on Christmas Eve when this place was one of two open in the area. The greeter was a little brisk with everyone, not to welcoming, but efficient. Our server was wonderful and attentive, but not at all...More

I hope they improve their selection for breakfast. No chicken fried steak??? They've got a great ocean view location and the service is great.

The breakfast menu is big enough for everyone in family to find something. Portions are big. Nice views. Nothing fancy.

We were staying at the Best western, so it was convenient to walk over to the restaurant. We would rate the food and service as o.k. =-- nothing special.

We had dinner here twice. There are few restaurants in San Simeon and when our dinner the first night was so good, we returned on our last night. We thought the prices were excellent for what we got in a tourist town like San Simeon....More

We ate breakfast here two mornings and dinner one night. The service in the mornings was okay. Lots of servers + lots of tables + packed house = they get points for trying and bring your patience. The omelets weren't very good - eggs overdone...More

We enjoyed two breakfasts and a dinner here while visiting San Simeon. Our dinners were yummy but I can heartedly recommend their corned beef hash for breakfast! Prepared on site, it was moist and flavorful. The staff was especially friendly and made us feel welcome...More

This restaurant is small so you can expect waiting time in peak hours. The service and food were good and quick. Waiter was very attentive. It was a nice meal before heading to our hotel after a long day.

I did not partake, but definitely observed a full bar.
Hi, we will be traveling through San Simeon, unfortunately for only one night. The good thing is it happens to be Thanksgiving. Do you need to be staying at the hotel to book dinner at the restaurant. Can you please advise me what special dinner or night we might expect on Thanksgiving. There will be 7 of us.
