This was my favorite of all of the places we ate in Santa Monica. We order several yummy small plates and everything was delicious! It was the perfect amount of food and well-priced.

This is a real gem on Ocean Avenue in Santa Monica. Reasonably priced for their super fresh seafood and the staff are so friendly! Love sitting at the counter on a rainy day or on the sidewalk patio on cool evenings. Loved the fish sandwich!

Stopped for a light lunch and enjoyed a 1/2 dozen raw oysters, crudo, and probably the best key lime pie I have had. They have outside seating facing the palisades park with blankets when the breeze changes. Service was very good.

The Blue Plate Oysterette is an unpretentious joint with excellent reasonably priced seafood dishes- a great place for lunch. Service is brisk and efficient. The ceviche is highly recommended.

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
Monica pier spins high above the water, while park
revelers scream with delight riding the roller

If you go to the Blueplate web site, they have a "parking" URL that will give a lot of local info in detail. Or use google earth and you can see all the parking lots that are around the place. Looks like a parking lot... More
