Excellent salad with blue cheese and apples; enjoyed the clam chowder, french fries and grilled cheese and tomato sandwich (special order when we saw children with it). Good service and comfortable seating - if it is windy out, we recommend sitting inside.

We appreciate their success in keeping birds off of the patio.

Went here for an adult birthday dinner, their choice.

My bar cocktail was nothing special and pricey.

The Friday Prime Rib was a bargain at $17, ala carte, but nothing great. Then add the side. I would think that they would bake some potatoes to go with the prime rib, but the choice was their standard rice, steamed veggies, french fries, green beans.

My wife's filet mignon was less than average. A large portion, 8 oz., but not great. A smaller but better portion would be the way to go.

Too many other seaside places to eat in Capitola to eat here again.

You can't beat the view and the sunshine. One of the best place to people watch on a beautiful day. Average food but the view is 4 starts. If you can grab a table on the patio you are in for a treat. This is a must do when the sun shines.

There's no better place to enjoy a view of the beach than the patio at Zeldas. You're right on the beach with an unobstructed view. On a chilly evening like our visit, they have the heaters cranked to fight off the cold. If it's windy, they do a marginal job. But the location is worth it.

The food is fine. Always good but no especially imaginative. You'll get a solid meal but few surprises.

Such a quaint little place, Capitola, with an awesome view from Zelda's. My husband and I had eaten here, or some other restaurant in the same spot, fifteen years ago so such fun to come back with the kids now.

Lovely meal, good service, nice wine, great view. Enough said :)
