We heard great things about this restaurant so maybe the hype was too much. The food was vey good, but over priced. Only 6 calamari for an appetizer? Come on! My sea bass was over breaded, but my wife's teriyaki tuna was great. Our friend's tuna wrap was fabulous and they liked their entrees. You have to go just prior... More

I ate there a few times. The sunset view is amazing. The food was pretty good. Nothing that I'd write home about. But the prices seem high for what you get. $6 for a rum and coke seems a bit much

Dear sonnydixon, I apologize that you did not enjoy your numerous visits to our establishment. We are always trying to provide an amazing experience and obviously in your case we fell quite short of the mark. The prices that you quoted for the alcoholic beverages are the norm in this town and I sincerely do not believe that they are... More

The view is amazing, but you have to go before sunset, otherwise it is just dark. The food was excellent and a good value, being about $15 per entree, which in Chicago would be very inexpensive for a top notch restaurant. The fish was excellent as was the appetizer. They had good sangria as well. The staff was a bit... More

Insane flavors and view. You can't beat this place ! Make sure to get the mixed seafood grill and save room for one of the desserts. I recommend the hot brownie served with ice cream

The best place I ate while in Santa Teresa. Quite frankly, one of the best restaurants I have EVER eaten at. I'm not picky, but I like good food, and this was some of the freshest, most flavorfully prepared I've had. I enjoyed a wonderful coconut curry shrimp dish that was to DIE for. I even went back the next... More

We ate here on our second to last night in Santa Teresa and wish we would have come here sooner and more often! I had the mahi mahi dish and my husband had chicken. Both were huge and very good. We also had desert and sangria which were good as well. I didn't feel it was too expensive for what... More

This place as an incredible view and great food to go with it. They also made fantastic drinks. Just be prepared as this was likely the most expensive place we ate at! Our pitch of vodka/lemonade cost about $16. Two people can easily spend $100 here. But if you want great food and a beautiful view of the sunset its... More

A chalk board menu each night that is heavy on seafood (not a bad thing). But, the first night we visited Filet of Beef was on the menu. Questioning the quality the server convinced me to try it. I order it "rojo, rojo" or, very rare. I was concerned about the tenderness.... no worries. When it arrived, it was cooked... More

Definitely a place to go for a seafood meal and to watch the beautiful sunset. Dessertts are good too! Prepare to pay cash as well.
