AAA Inspector Notes
On the beach with breathtaking views of the surf and coastline, this restaurant centers its menu on worldly-inspired fresh seafood, beef and veal specialties. The butter basted lobster tail is a favorite and save room for an exquisite dessert. It often has been voted 'most' or 'best' romantic restaurant by several San Diego area publications. This long-standing tradition has been pleasing visiting guests and the many locals who dine there for decades—even when romance is not on the menu. At high tide it's a special event to watch the extreme proximity of Mother Nature as the surf wraps itself around this restaurant that was built in 1942. Twice since then it has survived the ravages of high surf and surges as it knocked out its windows—the last such event occurred in 1982. Photos adorn the entry wall of those tragedies. But it didn't keep them down for long and it shouldn't discourage you from dining here, either. Everything about your dining experience will be as peaceful and enjoyable as the gently arriving waves that generally roll into the La Jolla Shores area. The proficient staff, excellently prepared menu items and exquisite presentation of those items will draw you back again and again.
