Went to Cannons to enjoy the beautiful view. The view was great! The food was ok, but not equal to the view. Had the fresh mahi-mahi. It was well prepared and presented, but a bit dry. The service was pleasant but slow. Empty water glasses sat for quite a while before being noticed. If you want the view, go for... More

This is the place to have good food and one of the best views in Southern California. Gazing out the window will make this a memorable experience for you and you family.

Decor is diner at best, waitresses are 50+ , and food is average. The view is spectacular and the waitresses were friendly....just not enough to bring us back.

Great seafood at a reasonable price. I had the Cioppino for dinner, it was perfectly cooked and seasoned. The service was fast, friendly and professional. The view of the harbor was also excellent. I would eat here again.

This place has stunning views while you enjoy your meal. Service was good, valet parking offered and the atmostphere is not stuffy despite it being a very high end view. I would recommend and will visit again. The food was very good and priced as expected by the views really make this place a must.

We had a wonderful dinner here during our stay at the Blue Lantern Inn. We walked over from our hotel, were seated immediately in a great view table (honestly, ALL the tables in this restaurant are great 'view' tables). I had the Filet Mignon, while my wife enjoyed the Mixed Seafood Skewers. We BOTH agree that it was among the... More

Love Cannons. With a commanding view of Dana Point Harbor it doesn't get much better. The food and service are consistently very good. It's a little pricey but the view is worth it. Highly recommend it.

Great food, service, and WOW! the view is outstanding. On the pricey side so we don't go a lot. But when company come from out of town, it's our favorite place to dine.

Sunset over the harbour at Dana Point. The Pacific glistening as a backdrop....what's not to love? Coconut prawns and grilled Ahi served by a fun waitress who still laughed giving us the bill. I laughed too coz even as a Brit and a strong dollar this is value for money! Well worth a visit but likely better in the summer... More
