Very easy convenient to get into. Right at the end of Santa Monica pier with good views. Not really gluten free friendly.

We were walking along the Santa Monica Pier and decided spur of the moment to eat at Mariasol. Thankfully we were not disappointed. Overall the food and service were good. My friend and I were not very creative and both got the same tropical Mojito...More

Enjoyed the sights, sounds, and good service, but food was very average. I had the fish tacos..no taste. The vegi enchiladas were ok...chicken fajitas were good. Probably wouldn't eat a full meal here again.

This place is super busy at meal times, with long lines. Seating crowded. The outside, being on the pier is noisy. The inside is noisy and crowded as well. Sitting on one level, there were diners sitting right above my shoulders - a bit uncomfortable...More

If you are ever at the Santa Monica Pier, stop for a beer and nachos at Mariasols. Great ambiance, people watching, cold beer and good Mexican food. A little expensive,but well worth it.

The location on the tip of Malibu pier is nice but the outside back porch feels a bit built-in with lots of tourists and street artists in between you and the ocean. Don't expect a grand view. It's just water. The terras at the landside...More

The location at the end of the Santa Monica Pier is very nice. We had an outdoor table and enjoyed the panaramic views. The chips and salsa were tasty. I ordered Baja Fish Tacos and Guacamole which were pretty average.

The view is spectacular and food is good. Margaritas and the appetizers were a good value. I'd recommend mixed drinks and tacos. The vibe is chill and service was efficient.

We didn't book for a lunch - but I guess if you know what time you want to eat then booking might be prudent

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.
