Ate here yesterday after an absence of 3 years, due to a decline in food quality, service and an uptick in prices. However, we tried it again and all seems to have been righted. Don't know if there is new management, but the food is back to hearty and GENEROUS servings of well prepared and presented Cal-Mex coastal food. Great manager greeting (woman with purple hair) who seemed to keep the flow going with grace, speed and friendliness that will make you welcome. Server was excellent and the attentive refill and check ins were timely and unintrusive. I had the tuna tostada, and it was a bountiful serviing of seared tuna strips over a bed of greens, black beans(delicious, btw) and tortillas with an fabulous mango salsa on the side. Wife had the scallops taco, and while not cheap, were plentiful and perfect. Son had the halibut taco and his fish was even better than mine! Only negative is that the noise level is high, so not a place for intimate romance, but family friendly and you'll sit next to surfers taking a break and the after-church crowd coming for lunch, and the tourists who read these and decide they can't miss this fully restored icon - they are right!

The food has changed with the new ownership. This is not the place to go. Nothing special any longer just average. My burrito was bland. My wife's calamari taco had poorly cooked fish. Food looked good but didn't taste good. The salsa bar needs more spicy carrots.

We were there yesterday. The tacos are as big as a dinner plates. The fish tacos range from $12 to 18. You will rarely get to the tortilla because of all the fish or calamari. It is very beach funky and always full. Good news they now take credit cards. Great place to stop when exploring the beaches of the central coastline.

A lot of tasteless food. The four of us had fish tacos blackened and fried and no one liked what they had.
I guess they figured they could serve tasteless food and a lot of it and that was good enough.
