It was great taste and variety of shrimps. We have tried 2-3 types in the menu and all were delicious. It was a good Santa Monica experience.

Give it a try at the Bubba Gump Shrimp when u are at the Santa Monica Pier. Try to be there at 11am plus so to beat the lunch crowd.

We had a great meal here whilst staying in Santa Monica. The staff were really welcoming and friendly. The menu was good with plenty of choice and tasted great. We enjoyed just relaxing and eating our meal with the view over the sea.

Though on the pier with a good location with views across the sea, the food did not look appetising. Though to be fair we decided not to eat there so could have been wonderful. We had soft drinks which was politely served.

We just had appetizers and drinks. Corona-Rita is a MUST TRY. Very different but really good. It's just a fun place on Santa Monica pier.

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
