Had some really good Penne pasta with seafood mix. Angel hair pasta w/shrimp, fantastic. Fun, casual eatery with full bar with, you guessed it, margaritas!! Easy location right off of Hwy 101, fun drive through Encinitas and all the artsy places to look thru.

Across from Cardiff State beach and San Elijo state park, the location lends itself to a casual dining experience. The freshly made food and home made gelato is very good, and the personnel friendly and very attentive.

All was very good. Mussels in Peanut Sauce is a real treat. The Calamari although a little sweet for my taste was also a winner. The craft beers especially the milk stout (the name escapes me) was a knockout.

We could have easily split the skillet breakfast items - they are the best value in the Encinitas area! The wait staff was very friendly and the food comes out in just a few minutes. There is a full bar and great happy hours too!

Yes, they do! During our visit, a friend with us inquired about gluten-free items. My apologies, but I do not recall what specific menu items were gluten-free.
