Great beach pies and pasta dishes, and super breakfast. We really enjoy this laid back yet clean and fresh venue. The coffee may not be one of my favorites, but it'll do just fine. They have great local beers and one of the best views...More

Friendly fast service, English speaking staff, very clean. The peporioni pizza was as good as good as in Italy and you can't beat the view, directly on the Pacific ocean. Lunch for two was $9.00.

We saw so many signs for this restaurant, on the side of the road, we had to give it a try. We were pleasantly surprised. We even made a second trip. The pina coladas were also very good. Great scenery on the beach.

Hi, thanks so much for your kind review. We are glad you enjoyed yourself. Although I see you've marked it as a "1 Star" experience even though you seem to have had a great time. Was there possibly a mistake?"
