This is not an overstatement! I actually vomitted a little in my mouth while trying to eat up out of politeness. Do not eat her!

Mariasol offers the regular Mexican fare with the usual twists. The portions are generous. The service was good too. The servers are quite helpful and attentive to the customers needs. There is a bar where diners can watch TV- in our trip it was Cavs...More

The food was good, the drinks were good, but not strong at all. The service was good as well. You can't beat the location, especially if you sit outside.

This is a busy spot. We sat at the bar and ordered food. The chicken fajitas are excellent, the Baka fish tacos did not go down great but not sure whose fault that was, the bar men were very attentive

Considering you are on the Santa Monica Pier the food here is better than average. Not the best Mexican I have had, but decent. Go on a nice day and sit outside. The view is amazing. The service was great. Friendly and fast. Prices moderate.

A little pricey, but I imagine pretty typical for Cali. We sat outside right on the pier and overlooked the beautiful beach and ocean. Loved the guac that they made tableside. Alejandro​ was our server and was a boss at making guac.

Stopped here for an early dinner with kids and grandkids about 5:30 a Sunday afternoon. Was able to get a table for 7 after only about a 10 minute wait. The food was very nice and reasonably priced. The drinks were good but I thought...More

Located at the very end of the picturesque Santa Monica Pier, Mariasol serves mouthwatering Mexican fare reminiscent of that found in the Mexican beach towns of Cabo San Lucas and Puerto Vallarta. Visitors enjoy the vivacious colors of the patios and the decor of a true Baja Cantina. Mariasol's use of distinctive sauces, flavorful peppers and fresh fish make this cuisine a favorite among food lovers. Lunch and dinner are served daily.
