Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a
balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a
thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers,
roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the
famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles
weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa

revelers scream with delight riding the roller

As mentioned by others it is an adult restuarant but I have seen children there early in the evening. I would suggest keeping your reservation before 7pm..
