No complaints on the service or the food. Both were exceptional, the prices, well they were pretty high for Mexican food. But I think you pay for the location.

Right on the water with quaint view. We sat outside by the heaters at first but decided to move indoors (possible rain). No one gave us attitude about moving and they were very helpful. The drinks were small but strong. Service was fast and friendly (CHRISTIAN did excellent). The fish tacos were excellent. Several staff members and over and offered to take a group photo when they saw us taking selfies.

My wife and I had just arrived in Capitola for the weekend and due to other TA reviews we decided to stop by Margaritaville for lunch before we checked into our hotel. We were immediately a greeted and as requested, we were seated outside on the deck. It was an absolutely beautiful afternoon and the hostess made sure we had a table with just the right amount of sunshine and shade. They were quick to deliver our drinks and once were ordered, our meals were also delivered promptly. The service wasn't at all overbearing, but multiple people, including the manager checked in on us to make sure we had everything we needed. We ordered a couple different tacos plates and we both were happy with our choices. I thought the pricing was reasonable, the setting/view was excellent and as I mentioned...the service was outstanding. We will definitely be back!

Celebrated my dad's 75th birthday here, with three generations. Ate indoors, at a beautiful ocean view table. Festive decor, friendly and excellent service by Lindsey and the whole staff, and delicious upscale Mexican food. Collectively, we enjoyed chile verde (spicy pork) enchiladas, wild mushroom tacos, crab tostada, as well as more traditional juevos rancheros and nachos. Oysters for appetizer were small but tasty. And the Bloody Mary was an eye opener! Highly recommended, all the way around. Such an improvement compared with years ago under different management.
