Rude front office staff, very basic restaurant - they live off fact that they are close to Hearst castle, but much nicer places in Cambria. Don't let the website pics fool you - this Place is not on the beach but on a bluff on top of beach....beach access (to hotel and public) is 500 yards

We had breakfast there, sort of. The service was first slow, and unapproachable later. For 4 persons we got 2 knifes, 2 spoons and 8 toasts. My question for some additional cutlery kept unanswered (so I helped myself and took it from another table). Guess if it was possible to get a coffee refill. Never ever.

This review is for the restaurant portion of this resort. We had a thirty minute wait for a weekend dinner which is not that bad. Reservations are recommended. We stayed at the hotel and just walked over to eat. I ordered the mixed grill while my husband ordered the trip-tip. My mother ordered the salmon salad. Service is very good... More

We planned to eat breakfast here, the server was very unfriendly. The server showed up after we waited for 15 minutes, and when I about to take our orders, she left for no reason before I could tell her what we want to eat. I asked another server for help, the other one said she isn't our server and she... More

Enjoyed meal in a dimly light environment. Waitress was attentive, food tasty and good portions. A bit on the pricey side but no different from higher end sit downs.

We arrived without reservarions just as the sun was setting. We were seated quickly and had a view over the ocean. It was a beautiful place to eat dinner. Wait staff were attentive and food was good.

Finding good restaurants is hard in the San Simeon area. Had breakfast and dinner at this restaurant. It's a small restaurant with a fair cuisine. Compared to other restaurants in the area, only one recommendation: don't search for another place, go here!

We went here for dinner during our stay at the hotel. It was ok, not more than that, not less. A place I will not remember in a year from now. Food was ok, staff was ok.
