This is a great place to relax, view the ocean and enjoy good food. The outdoor seating is perfect , but even inside sitting at the bar provides a great view. The service is top notch and if your not in the mood for a margarita, they have a good wine and beer selection.

Margaritaville has been my favorite for 30 years, used to live in the area. Margaritas have always been fantastic and still are a thumbs up. Recent updating to more "family" style is really just a more modern look, simplified but very nice menu and they have shortened their hours to lose the bar scene and give their employees a better life balance with work hours. Not as typcical mexican as some restaurants - I had a simple piece of grilled halibut with a mango salsa on the side, and an amazingly flavorful side salad ( loved that dressing). The chips are not really gluten free since a shared fryer with flour tortillas. We guessed that might be the case and brought our own chips. We were still charged for the salsa ( sans their chips) but at least we had the appetizer option with our drinks. Needed gluten and dairy free and one of our guests was vegan. We were all very happy with our food.

Was here visiting and a relative brought me here for dinner. What an excellent choice. The food simple but great. A good example that you don't need to have an extensive menu, just make what you know best and make it great.
Excellent fast service and friendly.

We were attending the Capitola Art and Wine Festival and wanted to get lunch in Capitola. The Margaritaville Restaurant is under new management we were told and since my husband and I had never been, we gave it a try. We were with another couple and all ordered a different dish. Every selection was amazing. The avocado on toast, the fish tacos, skirt steak tacos and the chorizo with eggs, were all so tasty. Everything came out at the perfect temperature. The service was amazing and the prices are reasonable. We will be back again.
