After a hard days shopping, Zengo's was the perfect tonic. Friendly service in a busy restaurant. The food was great and we ended up orderring more as we went along. You will need advice from the waiters as the choice is too big.

We did not enjoy the latin-asian fusion food at all. Very strange flavor combinations that just didn't work. Food is a one star, but here's an extra one for the beautiful open air decor and setting.

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
