Our server was pretty quiet and seemed bothered most of the time by his customers. The food was decent but we've definitely had better Mexican food at chain restaurants.

At the end of the Santa Monica pier. The prices are reasonable. The margaritas are good. The spicy margaritas are excellent. The fish tacos are fresh with grilled and not fried fish. Good service too.

Loved sitting out on the patio. Only had rice, beans and guacamole sides but all were good. The view made it worthwhile.

We visited the Mariasol for drinks. The location is absolutely astonishing, however the staff kept asking us if we wanted to order new drinks way before we finished our beers. Price is quite high however that was to be expected on this location.

We were hanging out at the Pier and needed lunch and didn’t feel like fast food. This seemed like our only option. They got us in right away and gave us a table outside. The place was busy and had a long line by the...More

We didn't book for a lunch - but I guess if you know what time you want to eat then booking might be prudent

Located at the very end of the picturesque Santa Monica Pier, Mariasol serves mouthwatering Mexican fare reminiscent of that found in the Mexican beach towns of Cabo San Lucas and Puerto Vallarta. Visitors enjoy the vivacious colors of the patios and the decor of a true Baja Cantina. Mariasol's use of distinctive sauces, flavorful peppers and fresh fish make this cuisine a favorite among food lovers. Lunch and dinner are served daily.
