Service was nice and the restaurant was not crowded at all, so those were positives. But the menu was very limited and very expensive, and the food was only average in quality.

Stopped here for dinner one evening in October while visiting the Big Sur area, there are really few restaurant choices along this area and as we were passing we decided to eat here, the restaurant opens at 5 for dinner so when we arrived it had just opened. There were not too many options on the menu for dinner but... More

Since the Nepenthe was just too crowded, we trucked onwards on the PCH and found this wonderful place. The ocean views were awesome, and we opted for their ‘famous’ fish and chips…and yes, they were great! The waitress was very friendly, and the prices were reasonable for this area.

We ate here our first night staying at the lodge. Our waitress was very nice and was running all the tables so she was a bit frazzled. We felt bad. Our food was very good. We got steak and chicken and it was all tasty. The views are great of the water and mountains.

We were staying at the lodge over night so ate at the restaurant. We ate early around 5.30/6 as we wanted an early night and a chance to see the sunset without being rushed as the restaurant finished at 7.45pm! The service was very friendly. We sat in the window to see the view but the flys are a real... More

Just inside the door a sign says to seat yourself so I did. The table I chose near a window was wet so I told the server, who looked at me funny saying she had just wiped it. I asked for a towel and she returned and partially wiped the table top dry. I guess we're supposed to wait for... More

Our dinners were delicious. You can buy wine at the store on site. The restaurant is a quick walk from the cabins and rooms.

Amazing location with superb views. We were promptly served by an efficient and friendly waitress albeit in a rather abrupt style, and we thoroughly enjoyed a very tasty and substantial burger and blue cheese with fries and a coke. The little flies which seemed to take a shine to us were annoying though but they had been a feature of... More
