    Overall had a great experience, and the food was delicious. Our only complaint is the music was so (SO) loud, our party of 6 could not hear each other unless communicating with the individual right next to each other. Really disappointing as the interior is so beautiful and it would have been so nice to be able communicate during our time there.

    First time in restaurant for me with a local. Food was fabulous with good portion size, delivered promptly. Server appeared pre-occupied and like we were a bother. The restaurant was not a third full. Server brought the check w/out asking if we were interested in anything else, dessert... We paid and went to another bar/restaurant in the plaza to continue our conversation over another drink.

Discover Encinitas

Encinitas, CA, boasts inviting accommodations, fun nightlife, a wealth of activities and consistent waves. It was once named one of the best surf towns in the world by National Geographic. Whether you choose to surf or just watch the antics, one thing you will not want to miss is eating in the local restaurants. Often people start their day with a healthy omelet prepared with locally grown ingredients like avocados and asparagus. Many seaside cafes offer lobster rolls, crab rolls, and shrimp rolls.
