Breakfast was very good as was service once we were seated. Took 3-5 minutes for seater to actually acknowledge we were waiting. The waiter was friendly & helpful as my husband eats dairy & gluten free. Enjoyed our meal, will return.

This restaurant is well located with a wonderful view of the ocean. However, like many restaurants with nice views, the food is nothing special. I think it is worth going to other local restaurants if you are in San Simeon.

From reading other reviews, we can't believe how some are so nit- picky! We have eaten several meals here, and have enjoyed every one! My wife had the Salmon sandwich and it had a whole boneless salmon steak in it, and she loved it. I...More

Stopped here for lunch after a visit to Cambria. The menu is varied and I chose the Sanddabs which were okay but somewhat overpowered by the sauce. My husband had the steak sandwich which looked great and he assured me was delicious. The location is...More

Lovely restaurant overlooking the sea at San Simeon. I had a fabulous Fettucine dish. My friend had the Chef's Special which was a seafood stew. Service was excellent and food was fantastic.

Ordered room service twice. Always prompt, hot, and tasty. Very good value for the meal....No extra charge for room service. Nice to enjoy the sunset while relaxing over dinner. We will be back.

We had liquor
Hi, we will be traveling through San Simeon, unfortunately for only one night. The good thing is it happens to be Thanksgiving. Do you need to be staying at the hotel to book dinner at the restaurant. Can you please advise me what special dinner or night we might expect on Thanksgiving. There will be 7 of us.
