Wow! Thats how I felt as I gaze out to the sea. So calming and beautiful amid all the excitment on Sata Monica Pier. The food was delicious and the tableside preperations by the chef made the service unique and pleasing. I could not help...More

A little pricey, but I imagine pretty typical for Cali. We sat outside right on the pier and overlooked the beautiful beach and ocean. Loved the guac that they made tableside. Alejandro​ was our server and was a boss at making guac.

Located at the very end of the picturesque Santa Monica Pier, Mariasol serves mouthwatering Mexican fare reminiscent of that found in the Mexican beach towns of Cabo San Lucas and Puerto Vallarta. Visitors enjoy the vivacious colors of the patios and the decor of a true Baja Cantina. Mariasol's use of distinctive sauces, flavorful peppers and fresh fish make this cuisine a favorite among food lovers. Lunch and dinner are served daily.
